  • 4 TB hard drives are about $100. I suggest you remedy the disk space problem.

  • Nice talking with you Adrian, best of luck.  It is easy to get tied up in all the technical aspects. I am a bit of a sadist when it comes to that :) The conclusion I came to is buy the gear that ...
  • Replied in Yes and No
    Its full frame equivalent lens would be 75-225 f/4.2, yes, but it is still a 50-150mm f/2.8 lens, those physical properties never change. The equivalent part comes into play if you were to use a ...
  • The extra stock could easily be an allocation from somewhere else, or maybe the did another production run, but that is probably easy to do if they need to. Wish Samsung would give some official ...

  • I wouldn't hold out much hope. I noticed on LinkedIn that the former marketing director for the digital imaging division in the USA switched to the personal computing division.
  • I think it would be fine long term, just not one Samsung wanted to spend money in when they are having issues with smartphone sales.  Still, their profit is incredibly high, so I wish they would ...
  • Use a manual focus lens with adapter :)
  • Hard to say, Free Apps generally make a lot more money than the paid Apps, you get a lot more users so you have to make money through advertising or something else. They could just be doing it to...

  • It isn't limited to Samsung, almost all normal zoom lenses are this way. However, the 16-50 PZ is maybe a bit worse then the 18-55 in this regard. I need to formally test mine yet to be sure, but ...
  • I would contact Samyang, they might be able to swap mount for you. Samyang are sold under various brand names like Rokinon, so could try contacting them as well.
  • 16-50 pz is great at the wide end, but a bit of a turd at telephoto, I still use it on travel when I dont want to take the S lens. I got mine for $250US with an NX500, so that deal is probably not ...
  • http://connect.dpreview.com/post/4464729881/samsung-announces-in-house-12mp-dual-pixel-sensor Samsung makes their own Dual Pixel technology sensor, so it sounds like they source from both Sony and ...
  • Why does Samsung fabricate most of Apples flagship iphone processors? Business. The S6 had both Sony and Samsung camera modules, depending how the dice rolled on which one you got. Mine has a Sony ...
  • Not really, they go with the best and cheapest. Doesn't matter if Samsung makes an image sensor or not, if it doesn'tmeet the best for the price criteria it probably won't be used, but if Samsung ...
  • You really need a telephoto, as you don't always have luxury being in someone's face. I shoot with NX1, 2 S lenses and a yongnuo flash setup. I used 16-50 and 85mm too, but the flexibility in ...
  • I imagine.  After a few "bad" quarters for the company as a whole and new leadership money losing pet projects like NX get killed off. Eric
  • They are handling it like they have to handle the situation. What remains to be seen is what is done with NX mount, I think they would sell that off and not kill it outright, but who knows. I ...
  • More specifically, Sony neutered their E mount system with a narrow opening as it was always meant for APS-C. This prevents large rear element lenses that offer good performance which sit very...
