£200 - a bargain!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Samsung NX100 Interchangeable Lens Camera - Black (3.0 inch AMOLED Display,14.6MP, 20-50 F51mm Lens) (Camera)
I gave this camera 5 stars based on the price. As it is an old model, it's price has fallen, but it is part of the Samsung NX system. I made this purchase as I wanted a large-sensor camera; this APS-C camera is such and has a magnification factor of 1.5, so the kit lens is equivalent to 30-75mm on a full-frame system such as a 35mm film camera. This camera is an amazing device to use and always seems to have a pleasant surprise for me when I explore it. Controlling the main functions from the lens is great via the iFn button,giving access to shutter, aperture, exposure compensation, WB and others without access to menus.
The case is metallic and sturdy, feels strong and comfortable in my hands and has survived a drop from a table. I have another, older Samsung with similar construction that has lived through many more drops, some at high speed!
The image quality, at 14MP, is great and colours are intense and appealing. At 100%, they have good detail, but not as good as my Nikon D40x, which has a lower pixel count with a similar size sensor.
To add to my excitement, I have also purchased a 16mm prime for around £160 and a 50-200mm lens for £140. This is a full kit for just £500! For people considering this camera as a purchase, their are other old model cameras under £250 with even greater resolution... Check them out on Amazon market place!
