  1. Sorry, I won't be able to say anything about Canada or other markets as I worked only at London.

    You guys may be right about their decision for Canadian market and may already decided not to continue. That could be the reason the staff didn't know anything about NX.

    Samsung even never launched Galaxy Beam smartphone in the UK officially. This phone was sold and marketed in different countries.

    It is mostly the son of the chairman destroyed everything after the chairman was in hospital. He made a lot of changes and made us redundant. ?

    But, still would buy an NX2 if they ever release it or bring back the NX line.

    I think that Samsung had already decided to leave the camera market when they released the NX1. It was basically a last gasp experiment that was actively marketed in only a few markets as a test. In many places even though it was "officially" released, actually finding someone who sold them was extremely hard. In Canada they issued a press release, but pretty much the only outlet that sold them was not an official distributor. The listed "official distributors" stopped selling Samsung cameras when the NX1 was released, or didn't even sell cameras in the first place. Even Samsung's own stores did not sell them, and the people who worked there had never heard about the NX1, which I found bizarre to say the least. It was pretty obvious that Samsung was not taking the NX1 seriously right from the very start. I suspect that was the case in many parts of the world. They appeared to be actively marketing in Korea and Germany, but not a whole lot elsewhere.

    As they say, if you don't try you can't win.

    I would disagree with you on the points that Samsung's own store did not sell them and the employees who worked there never heard of NX1.

    I worked at Samsung's OWN store as a sales associate in London where we have seen the NX1 and got trained on it month before the release of this camera. I was the first person to sell the NX1 on the launch day.

    I bought the NX1 (display unit) that was being used in the store as training purposes by us and to show customers after the store shut down on December 23rd.

    I'm still using it and I bought another NX1 just few months ago to use it as backup or B-cam.

    Used the NX1 last month on a wedding. The footage came out astonishing. I also had the Sony A7S II, but it was resting inside the bag most of the time. Prefer to shoot with the NX1 more.

  3. I shot at MCM Comic Con London 2017 with my NX1 + 16-50mm S lens on a monopod. Gamma DR and mostly using S curve in Premiere Pro.

    I'm not a professional. So, please go easy on me. Still would love to hear your critiques though. 

    Couple of days ago used my NX1 + 16mm f2.4 lens to shot few scenes for a YouTube show of another channel using Zhiyun Crane V2. Will share the link once it's released. They still have more filming to finish.

  4. Hi SR, did you try taking the battery out for few minutes and try turning on without the battery? This should do the electric discharge (if any remaining).

    Might there be some sort of damage due to keep pressing the WiFi button? Maybe the button stuck and still pressing automatically?

    I have not faced the same issue, so can't give you exact solution.
