Excerpt: First off, the real lowball reviews of this camera here sound like cranks without substantial or real-world basis. The focus guy just goes on and on about tangential issues (a zoom lens isn't necessarily inferior to a prime and doesn't force 'high ISO making photos look bland') and was never able to prove any of his problems on the forum with his weird videos. The fact is, CDAF will never be spot-on 100% of the time in low light or against non-constrasting subject areas.
Summary: I purchased the Samsung NX100 a year ago and was very impressed with its performance. When the NX200 was announced, I knew that I wanted it but at $900 the camera was too much at the time. Thankfully, the price dropped so I could afford it. And, let me tell you, at less than $600.00 - the NX200 will compete against all comers. The APS-C size sensor gathers more light than its micro 4/3rds competition and the autofocus proved more than sufficient for me.
Excerpt: If you want to know more about the Samsung NX200 camera and its lenses, check this video on youtube. Samsung just made a test video for providing their camera and lenses. It is pretty helpful for users who are considering of buying a Samsung camera. http://www.youtube.com/watch?
Summary: I'm not professional, often i used i-function or smart, firstly bought I got very bad pictures, the focus is not clear, but after updated ROM to 1.02 the image become perfect clearly and color also perfect.
Summary: EVIL for electronic viewfinder interchangeable lens. Anyway, I pre-ordered this from B&H last September. Have had it for a couple of weeks. First off, the Samsung NX 200 takes great photos. Low ISO shots are good, not quite as noise free as my Pentax K-5, but at least equal to Canon's current APS sensor images. I process photos from several theater photographers and get to see the files from many current cameras.
Summary: Samsung NX200 KIT Compact System Camera: Fully-loaded compact system camera Pros: Snappy AF performance in good light, New i-Function, Improved build quality and ergonomics, Good range of digital filters, Expanding range of available lenses, Good ISO noise performance, Good screen, Easy to use Cons: Battery life, Occasional slight inaccuracies with WB and metering, Slower performance in low light and when shooting raw files, No viewfinder option, Delay after continuous...
Summary: I can't give a professional review, but in brief: Quite small already with the 20-50 kit lens, even more so with 20 or 30mm pancake lenses (like this it will easily fit in many coat pockets). Still larger than most compacts of course, but with a lot lot better controls and lenses. Good sensor, but I get the impression this isn't the best camera for low-light use. For flash photography I can't comment. Talking about lenses, there aren't a big range available.
Summary: It's a great camera that has most of the features of a DSLR without the weight. My gripe is that when using it in low light situations, the lack of a remote shutter makes life a bit more difficult as the work-around requires using the release delay feature but for "bulb" settings this becomes a greater issue. The latter could be overcome by extending the shutter times to around 4mins in 0.5min steps , which is only a software tweak.
Pros: Ease of use, great screen, excellent low light performance, good image performance and the ability to connect to other optical equipment such as telescopes.
