It's the pictures stupid! Bought it at £184 for the 23 x 16 sensor (approx) and I must say the few images I have taken are superb.
Just a few points, would have given 5* but the camera locked up on only frame 0005 when the capture button was half depressed, no control on the camera would force quit, totally frozen so the only thing to do was the Mac treatment, cut the power source by removing the battery, that worked but it has left me a bit worried.
The viewing screen is virtually useless as it is so dim, but I can work it, might even take 3 x 4 and crop to 16 x 9 after if it becomes a problem. The default focusing set up seems to be a milk crate over the screen that picks a point at random, usually a blade of grass in the foreground so I have changed the focus set up to Point'n'take, tap the screen on the intended object to focus and it focuses and takes in one go, might be the answer?
I never want to crop normally, and don't print so huge files are not my aim, in my opinion RAW is for wimps, with this size sensor you have to be a bit anal to want 30mb files and take a lot of time ending up with a jpeg worse than provided by the camera. A bit despondent to find the full 20.3 mpx images in jpeg form are so sluggish in Panoramio, and concerned at first as they seemed out of focus, but I think it was down to the large file size, as after a second or two the brought themselves into focus.
All these comments are predicated by my existing camera, a Sony WX150, which have love and do love, except that the battery door now flips open after a couple of years. So this camera to make it worthwhile had to beat the image quality to make me feel relieved.
So I did an experiment by taking a full reslution (18> 12mpx) 16 x 9 image on the Sony WX150 and a 16 x 9 (20.3>16mpx) on the Samsung NX2000 of the same subject and area, and whilst at it I took a second image with the NX2000, 16 x 9 (20.3>7.8mpx).
A similary enlarged area on all three images adjusted to give like for like revealed the Sony was very good but the 16mpx NX2000 was far superior and although the 7.8mpx was a smaller file, on the basis of my 'no cropping' regime the area veied at the same enlargement was equally sharp. So I now intend to:-
Continue taking jpegs
Use the focus 'Touch n Shoot' facility
Except if specifically required shoot using the one step down resolution setting.
So I'm delighted, and hoping for no more 'Lock ups'.
