Summary: First of all, this is very expensive. It doesn't come with a zoom lens, you need to by that separate for at least another $300. The lens it comes with doesn't even have an exterior lens cap so it's only a matter of time before it gets scratched! Also the software leaves much to be desired and you even need to buy the photo viewer separately (the CD is a trial version only). For $400 they could at least through in a decent photo viewer / movie viewer program!
Excerpt: I am totally in love with this tiny new toy! I am a professional fashion photographer, I work with Canon and Nikon but when I am out of the studio and on a trip I would prefer carrying something smaller! I have used the Sony NEX-5R for quite sometime, it was ok, nothing impressive, little bulky to carry around in my handbag.
Pros: Easy to Use, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Battery Life, Great Resolution, Great Zoom, Small / Compact
Love it, takes the same or better quality pictures ...

Summary: Love it, takes the same or better quality pictures than my brothes pro camereas so many lenes.One thing though, bought some lenses for the camera the right ones I may add. I can not seem to connect the other lens to the camera, is there an adapter or something to join these together ? Looking for a vidio to show how to mount a 0.43x hidef af wide angle lens to camera.....anyone can join in to help I am lost.
Excerpt: After my previous comment, I am attaching a couple of pictures I took with the NX Mini with the NX-M adapter, and the Pentax 70mm f2.4 Limited with Samsung-Pentax adapter. On the NX Mini, this lens becomes an incredible 190mm f2.4!! I love this lens on the NX300, where it is a perfect portrait lens, equivalent to 105mm, with a quite small size, considerably smaller and cheaper than 85mm f1.4. In fact, it is my favorite lens on the NX300.
Pros: Easy to Use, Good Battery Life, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact
Cons: No Peaking Wmanualfocus, No Peaking W Manual Focus, No Viewfinder
Summary: If you are getting this camera for its video function DO NOT DO IT!!! I got this camera because it was really cute and has a flip screen. It is great for still images and I love that it can send photos to my Samsung smart phone. My biggest problem is the auto focus during video. It will continually try (and usually fail) to focus during video which is really annoying and ruins the video. You can also hear the motor on video while the camera is trying to focus.
