Amazing camera! Perfect for traveling/hiking!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Samsung NX1100 Smart Wi-Fi Digital Camera Body & 20-50mm Lens (White) (Electronics)
I got this camera before a recent trip to Nepal and the UAE. I figured, if I was going to spend weeks hiking in the Himalayas, my old point-and-shoot without a panoramic option, just wouldn't do the trick. But I also couldn't afford a DSLR, nor did I want the extra weight, given that I would be hiking (Everest Base Camp trek) for two weeks and anyone who hikes knows that every extra ounce adds up. After a lot of research, I ended up choosing this camera, in large part based on the wifi option and ability to upload photos (to Facebook! and via email!) directly from the camera, as well as the light weight, and price. Plus, the bonus of getting Adobe photoshop software was appealing. The Adobe software has been a bit disappointing (given the cost when you buy this independently, I expected a lot more of it), but EVERYTHING about the camera itself is PERFECT. It is super lightweight so that was never an issue when hiking, and it's small enough (with the lens that is included, attached) that I had no trouble fitting it into my small-to-medium cross body purse when I was in a city. It takes spectacular photos, so I found I didn't really need to photoshop much at all anyway. It really excells when it comes to panoramics (wow did I get some great shots!) and the video quality and sound is great. I even got some great low light photos. For the price and features, I think this has to be one of the best on the market, and I would highly, highly recommend this to anyone looking for a new camera, especially if you're an adventurous type and/or travel a lot.
