1.0 out of 5 stars No macro....., November 7, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Samsung NX1000 White ~ 20.3MP Digital Camera with 20-50mm Lens (Camera)
If you want to take macro pictures, under a foot away, you
need to spend an additional $600-900 bucks for a macro
lens. This only has like a 2x zoom lens. The controls are
confusing. And a steep learning curve. This camera demands your full attention and then there goes the shot. Have to say, it is a beautiful camera, especially the white one. But, had to send it back. For that many bucks, you would expect it to walk on water. I would wait for the next iteration.

Try the Samsung SH100 for under $140! It runs circles around this camera. Wifi, Facebook, camera to camera, macro, 5X, fits in your pocket, etc. Easy to use touchscreen and battery last forever. Samsung new Galaxy camera won't sell on Amazon either, :-(, strictly ATT for $40-100 bucks PER MONTH!

Samsung is getting to expensive for the average buyer. Merry Christmas.

Do not buy this camera from third party sellers. They play by their own rules, charing you a re-stocking fee of 20% and more. With no recourse from Amazon. They will back the seller, but not the customer. I will restrict my purchase's to Amazon only. Resellers will take your money and run.

Not true at all. Amazon sticks by the customer and you always have at least 30 days to make a return. Reseller's are what makes Amazon, Amazon.

Not in my experience - I don't agree with the original author's review of this camera, however when you buy from 'Amazon' you expect good service and an easy transaction, even if you need to return. A 20% restocking fee from the 3rd party seller, that Amazon wash their hands of, makes me extremely wary now of buying through Amazon. They now offer no more protection or customer service, than I would get through an eBay transaction.

This isn't a point and shoot camera. You are comparing apples to oranges.The image quality of the nx1000 is FAR superior to the sh100 or any other cheap point and shoot. It sounds like you had no idea what you were purchasing when you bought this camera. The nx1000 is probably the best value for the money mirrorless on the market. Don't fault the camera for your lack of research.

I just bought a Nikon D800 ($3000!), and no macro! Can you even believe it?

uff

Agreed. Please read a bit more before making a purchase. Steve knows what he's talking about.

After reading this review, I went back to my camera and double check the Marco feature. Yes there's a Marco mode when you switch to "smart" mode and the camera will automate the Macro mode if you get close. You can only get close to 2~3 inches to the subject but for the price I'm paying for I'm happy.

Note: in smart mode the "Tulip" icon will lit if you're in Macro mode.
