Excerpt: The NX100 can be had for a song, and the tune it sings is all about exceptional IQ at a bargain price. Contrasty, popping colors in low ISO JPEG, a little sluggish processing RAW but not too bad with 14MP files. A grossly underrated and seriously overlooked camera with capabilities far beyond lackluster reviews and poor marketing efforts by Samsung would have you believe. PROS: - Above par image quality, solid DR range with flexible Smart settings, great RAW quality.
Excerpt: Pros: iFunction (probably in near future this item will appear in many cameras)... fast trigger fast focus ergonomics style image quality Cons: Hi-ISO just 6400 Low Flash Sync speed Lens zoom kit 20-50mm poor maximum aperture Conclusion: I've been using a Canon G10 for 4 year, Then I bought the NX100. An excelente Camera...
Excerpt: The samsung NX-100 is an exelent camera system. good LCD Exelent image qality,exposure is always top nots. I din,t feel the need to make manuel adjustments. Batterie live is exelent,and I do not feel the need for an extra. My only complane is de 20-50 zoom lens,no stabilization on the lens or body. Strance as al my other pen camera's have it. The camera is fast,but A bit slibery in use. Problems: I cannot find any problems.
Excerpt: As an (admitted some years ago) avid user of a Canon 40D which was good and of course the $$ you ahve to spend on good glass I did switch some 2+ years ago to a Panasonic G1 (the 1st of that series) with the 14-45mm & the 45-200mm lens andlter got the flash for it. I was immediately satisfied though did not like so much the crop factor of 2x typically for the MFT's system.
Excerpt: Just got finished using the camera. Amazing pictures. The quality you would expect from Samsung. American TV Brown Deer store has a special on it for $497 including the 55-200mm lens as well as the lens that comes in the box and a flash and Free 4GB Memory card. $$250 cheaper than even Amazon!
Summary: I wanted a smallcamera that had an dslr sized sensor,i have canon Dslr's but when i am out with my wildlife kit i did not want to swap lenses or carry another slr. i saw that tesco were selling Nx100 for Â£250 inc free flash gun. i find it really good, to test i took a shot with it and then with a canon 50D, printed them at A4 size and to the same white balance in PS.
Summary: Being my first Compact system camera I'm rather happy about my purchase. My job allows me to play with all the top of the range DSLR's etc yet i haven't the money to buy. Samsung to sum up in few words; Affordable, quality pictures and great first camera The thing to remember; photography is an expensive hobby! Attatchments are rather costly when you need them with this camera.
Summary: This is a great little camera with some amazing functions, but to get the best out of it you really need the 50-200mm zoom lens which is proving very difficult to find. If Amazon are going to stock items like this then they should have the peripherals available for sale alongside it. The lens is available on the USA site but not on the UK and when I queried it they just kept telling me it was not there - I KNOW THAT!!! Not the most helpful customer service around.
