Samsung has a Facebook page for the NX300...

https://www.facebook.com/image.logger?fref=ts

In full disclosure I am shooting the NX300 for Samsung and I've got some work posted there, as do 25 other photographers from across the U.S. It's pretty cool to see what the camera and lens can do.

Wow, what a paranoid and silly response. I don't care if you personally never want to be on Facebook. I was posting this for people who may be interested in the NX300 and may want to see more and more samples from lots of different shooters. You know, millions of people are able to use Facebook without going insane or blind.....

Re: Samsung has a Facebook page for the NX300...

I've lost touch with how brands are promoted on facebook, but is this page intended to be setup as private? It looks like it's been setup as a personal page with limited visibilty, so I have to add "image logger" as a friend and be accepted before I can see these pictures. Shouldn't it be setup as a public page like this one  (which appears to be the official NX300 page)?

When I first heard of and went to Facebook I registered,

Then they wanted to copy my entire emil address book.

I am not that stupid to do so and as a result want nothing to do with Facebook.

I agree with that. I would never let Facebook have my address book. If that's what they are asking for I'm sorry I posted this.

Don't know about Facebook, but glad to see Samsung reaching out to photographers.

Re: Samsung has a Facebook page for the NX300...

You don't have to give facebook your entire email, but I think (and it was a while ago I registered) that it's presented as a step in the registration process that you have to avoid by clicking the hard to find "skip" button or something. Linkedin does the same thing. In other words many people probably do so without thinking. Personally, I think as long as you treat facebook as a heavily commercialized public forum with no privacy, you're fine. Sort of like going to a shopping mall - if you aren't happy for everyone you know and anyone who happens by to know all about something, don't post it on facebook!

Samsung has a few official pages on facebook, and some of them post some nice pictures from time to time. If you're on facebook, it might be worth a look, but I wouldn't sign up just to see their pictures. Also, most of them (but not the link posted above) are public so you shouldn't need to sign up to see them.

In my case I think they came to me because I've written five photography books that sell well and have a photography blog that gets about 25,000 pageviews a day.   Or, they just like my profile picture...

Here's one of the shots I did with the NX 300 and kit lens:

Studio shot with fluorescent main light and LED background light.

Thanks so much for taking the time to share both here and on your blog. I hope you continue to do so.

Beautiful lighting in your photo of a gorgeous face.

Congrats.  Too bad NX300 isn't a "Best Under $1,000" camera.

for some reason samsung never seems to be even looked at for those articles. Like still no preview shots or any hint dpreview have even thought about reviewing the nx300

Re: Samsung has a Facebook page for the NX300...

I think it's a great little camera. The one thing I would want to change is to have the ability to attach an electronic viewfinder for using the camera in direct sunlight. All of them are a bit iffy there. As to the files it's competitive with most of the APS-C DSLR's I've seen and the kit lens is really good. I was happy when Samsung sent along the 30mm f2. Now THAT'S a great lens...

I'm sure DPReview is saving their energy for the new Galaxy camera review. That should be relatively game changing.

Nx300 is better than nex and fuji, but nobody at dpreview is interested.

Re: Samsung has a Facebook page for the NX300...

Try out the 45mm if you get a chance - would love to see that how that worked out with the model you're working with. The 30mm is a great lens though and great fun to work with.

Re: Samsung has a Facebook page for the NX300...

I am at least two or three of those hits per day on your blog, Kirk.  Love your work and the blog.  I gotta day, I am kinda diggin' this little camera and the lenses.   There are a couple of quirks that I don't care for, but every camera has them.  The files are gorgeous.  Lens wise, the only thing missing from the line-up for me would be a compact portrait lens, and it looks like there is a 55/1.8 on the drawing board.  Hmmmm....making a trip to B&H in a few weeks - will have to check this out.  And, I AM in the market for a mirrorless system.  I would, however, need to grow up and get out of my "cameras come from camera companies" way of thinking.  Maybe I am too old (old dogs, new tricks thing).

The 55 1.8 turned into the 45mm 1.8 which is the compact portrait
