Small is Beautiful
on October 6, 2011
I saw an ad for the Samsung NX100 on the back cover of a photography magazine and then read reviews. I ordered the next day, and so you might consider this an impulse purchase. I've given this device five stars, so please understand that my somewhat less than positive comments are minor versus the overall quality and performance.
Lens cap did not stay on very well. I knew it was a matter of time before I lost it, and indeed I did lose it. Secure the lens with a lens cover strap. Better yet, Samsung should remedy this problem with a better-fitting lens cap.
Other issue is that the camera does not grip well to your hands. Therefore, one should always handle the body with the strap gripped and wrapped tightly around the hand or hanging around the neck. Not a big issue.
I have made nearly 1500 images in about six weeks, and I consider the output to be outstanding given the lack of preparation and ease of production. Moreover, images do not have to be cropped for 4x6 prints.
Aside from the image quality and flexible capabilities, the absolute best feature is the size of the NX100. It's not a shirt-pocket camera, but unlike the more normal-sized DSLR, you can carry it anywhere.
I didn't mean to do an ad for Samsung, but I'm enjoying this device. I hope you enjoy it too.
