I have a Canon 7D that I love too, but I was in the woods taking photos of a Scarlet Tanager along with another couple in front of me. When I clicked my shutter, the bird took off from the sound! Unbelievable.
So I went to my camera store and thought maybe a Canon Rebel T4i might be quieter (my sister-in-law has the Rebel XTi and it is noticeably quieter than my 7D) but the sales rep showed me the latest model was just as loud. Then he pulled out an NX1000 and clicked the shutter. Holy Crap! It was almost silent!
I was half sold but didn't like the idea that the lens was bigger than the body and with the telephoto lens, it looked like a roll of paper towels with a pack of cigarettes on the back! Plus it had no viewfinder. I felt silly holding this thing out in front of me while looking at the LCD display.
When I told the rep I'd think about it, he pulled out the NX20. It was just as quiet and it had a viewfinder as well as a flip out LCD screen! And the body looked like a camera, not a pack of cigs. I was sold. I pulled out my Visa card and picked up the NX20 and the 50-200mm Lens. A perfect kit.
One reviewer said the battery drains quickly. It does right out of the box. But you quickly learn to set a smaller picture size and quality, turn off Quick View, Set Image Stabilizer to only function when you press the shutter half way instead of continuous and turn it off when using a tripod. Minimize bursts of fast frames per second and all of these will save battery power. I also bought an extra battery. (Which I did buy from Amazon!)
With the Wi-Fi App you can operate the shutter wirelessly with a smart phone.Read more ›
There are many professional reviews available online as well as sample images and many videos on Youtube. Some of the videos look like they were shot with a pro-level video camera. The time-lapse video of Iceland done with the Galaxy NX (same image sensor and lenses) is especially impressive. It is in 2160p. Wish I had a way of viewing that resolution, but it is fantastic at 1080p. Generally the reviews are very positive, pointing out that both the AMOLED viewscreen and LCD viewfinder are the best available as well as many other features. The viewscreen is usable in bright sunlight. The viewfinder creates a good illusion of looking through the lens, but is much better than a mirror in low-light situations. An occasional review is way off the mark though. One criticizes the wi-fi capability of the camera, suggesting taking out the SD card and plugging it into the computer for transferring pictures.Read more ›
1. Much better value, $300 less than NEX-7.
2. Body size is perfect, fits comfortably in hands. Some mirrorless camera are too small;
3. The buttons make it a lot easier to operate and switch between scences
4. Operation is fast, definitely at the same performance level as the entry DSLR; I had a Canon T3i didnt notice any slow-down.
5. Display screen is very good, it has an EVF but I never needed to use it even under sun light.
6. Image quality is very good, I dont think there is any real difference between cameras of same sensor size.
1. Battery drains a bit faster than I expected, may be because it is a new camera and there were lots of playing around to get familiar with it.
2. Locked up once, had to pull batter out. There is a new firmware, dont know if it fixes it.
3. You can't show off your new toy to your friends, because they may ask "you paid $1000 for this?"; NEX-7 is a beauty and looks expensive, NX20 looks plain and boring.
Buy the NX20, save $300 and use it on a lens.
- I bought this for the NX lens pancake series. I think Samsung hits the nail dead on with "lenses first, camera follows" : These pancakes: 16mm f2.4; 20mm f2.8; and 30mm f2.0 designs have no equals, extremely compact,feels and look great on the NX20, and are very well priced. They also have the 50-200 zoom that complements well with the kit zoom, but both are inadequate for low-light situations even with the helping of OIS. The 18-200 seems silly overpriced, and the 85mm f1.4 is very competitive but perhaps oversized and unbalanced mounted on the NX series. The up-coming 45mm f1.8 appears very promising. I hope the pancake lens line-up is durable enough to withstand the test of time and not be obsoleted with future camera updates, and I hope Samsung will extend their pancake lines (how about 12mm and 70mm pancakes?)
- Built in pop-up flash is very convenient.
- Faster than my previous NX-100 by a long shot, and better image too.
- JPEG engine in this camera is still a little.... over processed yet inferior somehow. Shadow details tend to get clobbered. in-camera B&W output is inferior to comparables. It lacks the straight-out-of-camera smoothness and crispness i have come to expect from comparable D-SLR of the same price, such as the Pentax K-5. Best used in RAW.Read more ›
