Samsung GX20

Jure02, CNET
12 October 2012
  • Summary: Great camera when man get used to. Also after so many years it is very hard to find better in this class. I do not intend to buy a new Pentax K-30 i even it is much better by high ISO.
  • Pros: Everything & especially that I can use great range of all Pentax lenses.
  • Cons: Samsung does not produce DSLR any moore. They simply forgot the GS 10 & 20.

Samsung GX-20 review by pentaxguy

pentaxguy, slrgear.com
14 July 2009
  • Summary: Bought with the 18-55 kit. A "better" twin of Pentax K20D. Why better? 1) Out of camera jpegs are sharper - as sharp as RAW and you can jack up the sharpening to +4 and still get no sharpening artifacts. Some colors (in particular those that fall somewhere between pink and orange but are neither) seem to be quite off, but you can correct it with software (if you don't want to shoot RAW:-)).
  • Pros: seals, in-body stabilization, front/back focus correction for up to 20 lenses, Pentax mount, sharp jpegs, great bundled software
  • Cons: some colors in out-of-camera jpegs are too much off (but correctible with bundled software), weight

Samsung GX-20 .Digital SLR Camera

GeorgeE.Robert son, Rate it all!
19 October 2008
  • Summary: I bought the GX10 and loved it. I liked Samsung's controls design a little better than the Pentax version of this camera. Plus I never saw the point of yet another proprietary RAW format. Samsung's use of the Adobe RAW format just meant one less step. When the GX20 came out, I responded to the lure of the new CMOS sensor and half again more image size with the GX20, The potential flexibility of having an Xsync connection that might allow me to experiment with and maybe...

Fantastic Camera

Mr. P. A. Mason, Amazon
5 October 2009
  • Summary: My first digital SLR, but very very happy with the quality. I read reviews that the kit lens were not good, but they are better than anything I ever took before with a non digital SLR. Particularly the rich colors and having 14.6 mega pixels to zoom in and crop while still getting great results. I generally take pics in RAW+JPG mode which still gets loads on an 8gig card.

Super Samsung

Gadget Fan, Amazon
29 September 2009
  • Summary: I've been playing around for a while with a Pentax k-7 trying to convince myself I can afford the upgrade. It is a great camera, and puts right all of my issues with Pentax/Samsung DSLRs - namely speed of focus and frame rate. After selling my K10d I was looking for my next camera, and decided I could not justify the additional money for the K-7, so I opted for the GX20, which offers insane value for money.

A samsung you can`t text on!

thebigc16..., Ciao
4 June 2008
  • Excerpt: This is my first camera review in quite some time, the main reason for that is simply that I have not been using anything that stood out from the others I have reviewed with more and more DSLR`s becoming more and more similar it takes a professional (which I am) to figure out the tiniest differences from one to another. All that changed a couple of weeks ago though when I got my hands on the new Samsung GX-20.
  • Pros: See review !
  • Cons: hard to find any !

Sam sings a new tune...

D Deacon "pixist", Amazon
27 May 2008
  • Summary: Samsung with Pentax have produced a DSLR which is quite different from the rest. Samsung provides the 14.6MP CMOS sensor and Pentax the body etc. The Samsung offering is not inferior to the Pentax one. The body is packed with features: usable weather proofing, lens focal plane adjust, pixel remapping, image stabiliser (so all lenses benefit), sensor vibrate clean, auto ISO range select, ISO seen as part of exposure and adjustable as such, configurable noise reduction,...

  • Excerpt: Камеру купил случайно. Увидел в хорошем состоянии за недорого, захотелось повертеть настоящую полупрофку в своих руках. Не пожалел ни капли. До этого уже имел опыт владения беззеркалок Samsung nx11, nx10, поэтому в качестве Samsung даже не сомневался. Да и знал, что GX20 это конечно Pentax k20 с самсовской программной начинкой (хорошей). Заказал переходник М42 и пользовал потом камеру в основном с парком советской оптики – Юпитерами, Индустарами, Таирами.
  • Pros: - Камера очень эргономична! В руках держишь вещь! Все управляется с кнопок-колесиков-рычажков, причем все крутится, нажимается и переключается с нужными усилиями. Изготовление и материалы – на уровне, ничего не отваливается и не отклеивается., - Надежная, как АК-74. Не помню впадений в кому, зависаний. Хорошо переносит низкие температуры. Очень хорошая, живучая батарея. Точное количество кадров не засекал, но помню, что заряжал редко и одной батарейки всегда хватало.,...
  • Cons: - Для меня, в первую очередь, дороговизна и малая распространенность родной автофокусной пентаксовской оптики. Кит хорош, но хотелось бы и фиксы 40мм и длинный фокус, а они кусаются конкретно, а б\у в наших отдаленных местах не найти., - Для работы с мануальной оптикой рекомендую обязательно прикупить фокусировочный экран с клиньями-растром (не успел). Стоит он относительно недорого, меняется очень просто. Иначе, лично я, «возил» туда-сюда фокусом и несмотря на подтве...
