Samsung NX100 digital camera review - The new Samsung NX100 is a new comer in the popular segment of system cameras. This is a collective term for a group of cameras from different manufacturers but with a common denominator: the lack of a mirror. It is a so-called ‘mirror-less’ system, or as Samsung prefers, a compact system camera. The Samsung NX100 is a remarkably designed camera with relatively small dimensions and an average low weight. Although the true innovation is not found inside the camera, but rather in the lens. Samsung introduces the i-Fn lens with the Samsung NX100. The Samsung NX100 is available in different colors (varies per region). The body’s material feels a bit slippery, but due to the design it is fairly stable to handle.

Samsung TL500 review

Posted by: Dennis Hissink Monday 29th, November 2010

The Samsung TL500 camera is designed for the serious digital photographer. A advanced digital photographer looking for an easy-to-carry digital compact camera. The technical specifications of the Samsung TL500 digital camera are really interesting. Not only the 24mm F1.8 Schneider Kreuznach ultra-wide zoom lens is making a difference, the 3-inch AMOLED display with swiveling function are also details that will make a photographer curious. Direct competition is to be expected from the Canon PowerShot G12, Panasonic Lumix LX5 and the Nikon Coolpix P7000. The high-quality 1/1.7-inch format image sensor with a resolution of 10 Megapixels is also a typical feature of an advanced digital camera.

An entry-level camera system, but the Samsung NX100 camera is packed with very interesting new features. It is equipped with the world’s first i-Function lens, a new and innovative new method of camera control. The design of the Samsung NX100 camera is just stunning for a system camera, which comes in four different colors; black, white, brown, and silver. The lightweight, compact and modern design makes the new Samsung camera extremely portable, and with the quality of a DSLR, the Samsung NX100 combines into a strong combination.

Review Photokina 2010 - The system camera product group is steadily advancing. They were a bit slow to get going, but with the arrival of new manufacturers such as Samsung, the speed is increasing. According to Samsung, the system camera will conquer 4% of market share in 2010, but it is expected to increase five times in 2011 to 20% of market shares in the DSLR and system camera segment. It is clear that this will be at the cost of part of the digital SLR camera market. The new Samsung NX100 is expected to be part of that increase. The Samsung NX100 is a 14.6 Megapixel system camera with an APS-C format sensor and a friendly price tag. That makes for a remarkable combination.

Samsung NX review

Posted by: Ilse Jurrien Sunday 4th, July 2010

Samsung NX10 review : Just like the Micro Four Thirds, Samsung has left the mirror out of the design, so that you have to work with the image that comes directly in front of the sensor. There are some advantages to such a construction. First of all, you can make it a lot more compact, because you do not have to make room for a mirror and prism housing. Additionally, you always see precisely what will be shown in the photo, as you actually see what the sensor captures. Moreover, you can show extra information, like a histogram. Ideal for good metering. Other than that, not much else is new. We already know the Micro Four Thirds for some time, and Live View is generally known in DSLRs, and of course in compact cameras.
