Is Samsung shutting down their camera business?

Recommended Posts

Apparently Amazon Italy is not selling the camera anymore. Only third party sellers. Anyway how and who started the rumor of Samsung leaving the camera business?

Actually all European Amazon's dont sell it anymore.

A price tracker website says that Amazon Italy doesn't sell the NX1 since February 2015, probably they sold only a few NX1.

I'm usually the negative voice. but you guys...

I bought the whole system a few weeks ago for about half off retail, knowing full well it might be getting killed.

The only worry I might have is repairs but there are laws.

I bought it to use now, and I bought it because of its pure power that I need right now.

I didn't buy it because it had a high resale.

That said, I have the two s lens and I'm not looking to buy any other samsung glass. I find manual focusing on it

great so I'll be using Nikon and canon with adapters from here out.

why does everyone feel the need to mention "I didn't buy it because it had a high resale" ?

we all bought it because of the power. The resale was an afterthought. It's a checklist when weighing the pro's and con's of investing in the system for those still on the fence. It doesn't make your decision to buy it any wiser than it would be to avoid it. So please lets end the "resale value" point of discussion. :-)

I think the resale value of the battery may be higher than the camera in a few weeks...

How capricious are people! One moment it's an NX1 love fest, the next it's pile-on time. I guess the vagaries of the showbiz world extend to even the production gear.

I don't think anyone here is loving the camera any less than when they found out Samsung was pulling out.  Some value resale, some don't. Some are waiting for the price to plummet, some already bought into the system. I just dont see where anyone one of these "capricious" people are saying they no longer love the camera in light of incoming news / rumors.

Absolutely, just as it isn't capricious to tell your spouse of one month: "I still love you, but I don't think this is working." :)

Probably already posted somewhere in this massive thread, but I read Samsung is listed as a vendor for Photokina 2016. If nothing else, it is interesting.

They will be selling their VR camera, so it isn't surprising that they would be there.

Probably cell phone cameras as well.

so basically Samsung is silently leaving the camera market without ever telling officially? All signs lead to this but they're still denying.

they have to be the BIGGEST group of assholes to grace the planet. Ever. I think they wont announce it because they dont want it to affect their stock. Announcements like that can cause people to sell their stock, you know ?

FWIW: I noticed yet another price change for the NX1 (at least here in the USA).

In December, it was offered at $400 off ($1,099). Amazon was also offering a $200 gift card toward future photo product purchases. That was really tempting, but spooked by the rumors and the reported withdrawals from other markets, I held off.

On or around December 26, the price went back up to list - $1,499.

Yesterday I noticed it's now down to $1,199 ($300 off), both at the Samsung US site and at Amazon and B&H.

Also, a number of accessories (carry bag, remote release, neck strap) aren't available for purchase at the Samsung online store - there's just a button labeled "find online or locally", which is frustratingly vague.
