  1. You really seem to forget the horrible ISO performance, really horrible, looking like a handycam above 1600. 
    Lenses for low light? Sure get the premium S lenses, used, and you can just trash them after you decide to switch system.
    Need more low light? Sure buy the adapter for the price of a low end panasonic mirrorless, again that you will trash since it can't be used in the future.

    It was an amazing product no doubt,  anyway let's not forget about its flaws for low light when others were way better already. And fixing those issue by giving away for money for a DEAD system is not something I would advise or feel good about it, honestly.

    However if the NX2 was real........ ;)

    I'm sure they would glady accept any profits that it would yield. I'm just saying with a company this scale and reach profiteering may not always we the direct catalyst. Keeping in mind there's several ways a company like Samsung could "profit". Clearly, Samsung can afford to play the long game. 

    So why don't they?

    I don't think Samsung will release an NX2, but I feel like some of you are getting stuck on looking at Samsung as if they're always doing something for profit, as if they need it. This could very well be another pet project with zero intention to recoup investment, just because they can. Even at Microsoft we did the same thing. I worked on a team of designers and we were developing MS's version to Apple's Carplay for about 2 years and a big wig came in one day and shut the whole thing down in a matter of minutes, it's how it is.

    Samsung's 8 of 9 companies could go down and they'd still be insanely profitable. I think some of you are underestimating the scale and reach of the company. It's insane how huge they are.

    Actually we're saying the same thing, that's why I used Google as an example. Basically they could just do it just because they can and they could destroy every company out there just for fun (on performance and tech, of course).

    BUT if they did that in the past and left even while closing down factories... well my friend,  they are actually interested in profit. :)

  4. As long as I wish this was true, it just won't happen. The market is too niche for adding a new product (again), also considering the bad reputation they have, in a niche market everyone knows what they did... abandoned while lying to customers about leaving. wow.

    Anyway Samsung is so rich and big they could invest in something that one could turn into profit someday or not, Google has money to waste with failed projects :) I wonder how much they would have needed to sell for the nx1 to become profitable... 

    And selling the sensor to others I don't think it would yeield something close to the nx1.

    Yeah its pretty clean ! Works great for me. I use the nikon speedbooster to take advantage of all that great AIS glass ! If your not into doing side by side tests between the nx1 and the g80 your viewers will never notice the difference 😂😂

    Is it possibile to use nikon g lenses with full electronic support, auto focus and IS?

    Glad someone (anyone) else appreciates the wonder of the NX1's DIS. It's really quite brilliant. Why has no other manufacturer done that? Can you imagine how good it would be in S35 mode on a full frame sensor? And all with no need for physical hardware to sling the sensor around. My setup has organically gravitated towards a Contax 28-85 with dumb adapter and the 16mm pancake in a pocket in case I need to go wide (or have AF). I don't have any S lenses.


    Once Luca finishes the next batch of NX-L I might ditch the 16mm entirely. He is a one man band and doing this more for love than money as far as I can tell so I see no point in rushing him. 

    Is nx-l still on sale?

  7. Refund denied for the 18-200 cause it's an accessory. What I'll do is try another time with email support explaining my reasons perfectly and then I'll send it to warranty because it actually has a defect (or its made that way, I wrote a post last year about it) and then get a refund cause they won't be able to repair it (probably).

    Oh my! sell everything then and get the GH5 with the 12-60 2.8-4f!!

    These 2 lenses you have, they are my least favorite of the NX system, really unusable for night shooting. I own the PZ and it is very convenient for day time, small and sufficient, but the low quality of the lens shows with higher ISO. If you add the terrible NR of the camera on video, then this is a recipe for disaster!!

    Well it's more because of the NX1 horrible NR that nothing is good for night shooting.

    Anyway the GH5 is way too expensive for me, add a speed booster cause I'm for s35 look and you add even more money. For instance how do I get same field of view of the tokina 11-16 I got on the NX1? Sony a6300 only does that in 4k 24p, Fujifilm xt-2 just crops in every 4k mode, GH5 needs expensive accessories.

    I'm currently still an hobbyist and I can't quite justify spending those amounts :(

    Let us know please. You do not have much, if you want to change system you can easily. Sell the lenses as well, collect your 2400euros (in total) and buy whatever you want.

    If you care for video, I would suggest a used C100mkII, for hybrid GH5 is great, for photos, maybe X-T2, and some video of course.

    How did you come up with 2400 from my refunds? :p

    @sandro Do you have any NX lenses?

    The 16-50 kit lens (not refundable I guess since bought it from ebay from hong kong) and unfortunately the 18-200 that I used once for a job and sits unused since then, also it's not very good. I now asked also a refund for that and they'll let me know tomorrow.

    @kidzrevil They are giving him 1350euros (1520$), that is the most support I ever heard from a camera company! He probably had paid less back then. \

    Meanwhile, you have changed how many cameras since abandoning your NX1? (that is an honest, and serious question!)

    No wait that amount it's what I paid of course, nothing "generous" just the proof of purchase amount!
