There. I solved the ENTIRE problem.

You're funny. But... I think it all started when Andrew Reid put ZackGoodwin in a figure four leg lock over a Samsung 2/3 inch lens that Ed David thought was morally wrong to support. While Ebrahim ex

There's only selected markets left and the fact that even there accessories like the batteries are unavailable makes it quite likely that a global stop is imminent, just weird that they don't man up a

Is samsung participating at CES?

Is that a joke?

CES is the Consumer Electronic Show and Samsung is one of if not the largest consumer electronics manufacturer in the world lol. Their press conference stars in 1 hour.

But it will most likely be all about washing machines that you can play angry birds oppose to camera related stuff like Nikon.

LOL washing machines you can play angry birds on.

How about a new Samsung microwave that detects if your take away is late and prepares to a re-heating program for you.

Or a oven you can connect a USB keyboard to and install Microsoft Powerpoint, then you can bask in the warm glow whilst preparing a presentation.

Yeah, let's face it. It's game, set and match for Samsung's mirrorless camera business.

I have little faith in something new. So, appreciate what you have and work with that or abandon ship while still some debris is around to grab a hold of and float on in hope of finding another boat to still take you to your destination.

I will be mad as hell if this conference is about the touch screen refrigerator they announced the other day and not the successor to the NX1 ! ?

The touchscreen refrigerator got roughly 10 minutes.  The Samsung NX line got exactly zero.  I'm not sure they ever included their NX line in their press conferences for CES, but it doesn't bode well.  

Who will be the first to report from the Samsung booth at CES?  If there are no NX cameras or lenses, it's time to call it.  In past years Samsung has had a small NX display at CES.  If it's gone, well, you know.

Yeah, which has zero Samsung tech yet... like I've said before: 'if I were any of the big guys out there, I don't see much appeal to the NX-mount/eco system. I might only be interested in their design structure, they manage to pull crazy data from the sensor, makes the others look like they've got Pentium II processing or something.' D5: 3 mins @ 4K, obviously they need it.

 

And concerning them attending CES with touchy fridges...

That's exactly the case...

They won't even bother mentioning their cameras in that introduction...

... and no mention from Samsung at CES either... surprisingly...

Har har, very funny. If it were a Samsung chip at least it would not have the massive crop in 4K mode!

the Nikon is cropping their 4k mode ? I pray that's not the case and I am reading this wrong. Once again Nikon cripples their own video performance for no good reason smh

Yes see the D5 and D500 threads.

Think Samsung NX500 but $6000 and no mirrorless mount.

Hardly a NX1 performer.

NX1 is an awesome camera. But I believe their days in this market have come to a end. Look only to Sony for innovations now.

agreed. Maybe now Canon will poke their chest out and give us a competing camerathat  aint $8000 ? One can dream.

You should send them an email on behalf of all of us asking them : WHY ?!

I think we all want to know how someone as big as Nikon who pioneered video with the d90 can be so stubborn & dumb smh

You are right in the end, there is just the new refrigerator with their newest camera embedded in the door. We should by the new refrigerator and start filming our vegetables according to samsung:p
