IronFilm Posted March 3, 2015 Share Posted March 3, 2015 I like my Samsung NX1 a lot. But has there ever been a LESS sexy brand to own? Samsung. It's like saying my camera is a Toyota Corolla. Boring! That is my concern, that NX1 bodies and lenses will have very poor resale value on the 2ndhand market.Though I don't mind that if it means I can make it work for me in my favour.... ;-) By buying up one at a significant discount 2ndhand rather than getting it new, unfortunately it seems NX1 cameras can hardly be found second hand and not at any significant discount. Which makes this a point in the GH4's favour when it comes to buying one secondhand. Keep in mind with the hybrid camera phenomenon you are getting a lot of people coming over from stills photography. In stills photography you buy a system... not a camera. You buy into a Canon system or a Nikon system... then you stick with it. It is cost prohibitive to switch back and forth. So if someone is a serious hybrid shooter and does 80% stills it still makes sense to stick with one system. Everyone has to figure out for themselves where to draw the line.If you're mainly shoot video (which is the case for most people on this forum) your lens set should be chosen so that you've got a great degree of flexibility in taking it with you from one camera to the next (for instance if you go with all Nikon F mount, like I've mostly done).
