Downloaded Galaxy NX User Manual. Filter+RAW Question.
I just downloaded the EK-GN120 ( !!! other name for Galaxy-NX ) manual here: http://www.samsung.com/hk_en/support/model/EK-GN120ZKATGY (This is the english Hongkong version - there is already a thread here with a galaxy-nx user manual adress here http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/51891980 ) According page 52 the user can apply filter effects, for example vignetting. Is it possible to save RAW + the vignette-filtered JPG photo ?
you mean the filter applied ONLY to jpg with the Raw w/o the effect? In NX300 that's possible, so I'd assume it is also in Galaxy NX. Continue Reading
Does the Galaxy NX really focus slow...
compared to the Nx300 ? Same image engine. The Galalaxy Nx came months after the Nx300. ephotozine says about nx300: Focus time 0.25 / 0.25 seconds ephotozine says about Galaxy Nx: 0.35 / 0.4 s focus time ( inclusive shot ) Hmm.
Perhaps you should ask ephotozone this question. They should know all the variables they tested under. Continue Reading
I have both of these cameras, and I can find no discernable differences in their focusing abilities. Continue Reading
Samsung galaxy EK-GC100
First hello to all, posting from Chiang Mai Thailand. I know this camera is a few years old but it's new to me as I just got it on a recent trip. 3 main reasons I decided to buy this one over so many others on the market was having a sim slot very large screen and running Android and I believed it took great photos. Well what I have found out its great talking photos as long as its sunlight out or bright lights for night it sucks no matter the mode and the flash his useless. The big problem I am having is one of the features is the ability to connect to other devices through wifi/Bluetooth to share like photos but it does not connect to say an iPad/iPhone but only to samsung like smartphones very big disappointment to me. So far the things I like is using it as a tablet being about to take a photo and share/send it right away using cell services when not near a wifi and it does a very good job as I said in daylight. Maybe I am not using it right but the dark/night photos are usually ...
This is all normal and typical for most compact cameras. Please note the sensor is small and the lens is slow -- to make possible the huge consumer 21x zoom. It is a camera targeted mostly to cell-phone upgraders or to people who like to travel light. I have no problems connecting to any WiFi hotspot and Bluetooth on all of my WiFi and Bluetooth devices -- any of my multiple Android tablets and smartphones, my laptop etc. Are you sure your iOS devices are not using some proprietary iOS version of Bluetooth? There is no change in photo quality in the Galaxy Camera II and they indeed removed the SIM card slot. That is why I am not upgrading to it. I have the Galaxy NX. Photo quality is much better with any lens, and stunning with the fixed-focal lenses. But, it is much bigger, especially with a bigger lens attached... Continue Reading
