Interesting point, but I don't see a reason for thos prototypes to be so 'deep'...

Re: I'd like a hypothetical NX30 to be...

Just look how many website news and forum topics are devoted to the not even yet announced sony a7 and a7r.

They rise A LOT of interest, differently from any nx product. This should be a clear indication that sony is doing it right, with a traditional ff camera, whilemsamsung is doing it totally the wrong way, with a similarly priced odd gadget like galaxy nx.

The same happened with olympus omd, which got a lot of love.

I still hope samsung sees the 'light', sooner or later.

Re: I'd like a hypothetical NX30 to be...

This is is a very interesting article. My points about it:

- samsung and nx are not even mentioned (nor considered)

- better reign in hell than serve in heaven

Summing up, ok, omd or nex won't make oly or sony rich, but they'll make them visible among photographers, so that when things change, the'll be there.

actually they are, sort of:

"The corollary is that no single camera is going to mess up a company."

So no need to worry - Samsung won't die because of the Galaxy NX monstrosity

Why do the all-manufacturer camera sales drop ?

Because of the smartphones.

Who makes smartphones ?

( just economy-wise )

But nx line could die for a failure. I still think that making mirrorless cameras, for samsung, is just something 'optional'. It does that just since others do. Once a product fails badly, they could cut the money from the camera division and concentrate the same money on a more profitable business, like eg smartphones and tablets.

Everything could happen...

...Oly could die due to their interesting managing approaches...

...Sony could die due to restructuring the company...

...Sigma is dying since years...

...Pentax nearly died and is now part of Ricoh...

...always expect the unexpected! - and expect the expected...

Samsung can do anything because of their financial (and technological) power...

...they don't need to cut money from their camera division - similar to Sigma.

But unlike Sigma they can move in every direction they want with high velocity,

without being hurt - they don't depend on very few people, so they can choose...

...and they did choose to listen to their customers, by providing a 180 degree tiltable screen for the NX300...

...the NX300M - this screen is also useable for self portraits, which is AFAIK new for a not fully articulated screen.

And who knows about some hidden updates within the M-model?
