Samsung Galaxy Alpha Mobile Phone

It doesn't happen too often but I had to visit Berlin on business and was cought out without a camera; my definition of a camera that is. All I had was my mbile phone and that is what I had to use. I didn't expect much but I was quite surprised by the results. Not all turned out well, especially those taken in low light and by that I mean evening or shopping malls. I'm only going to show a few here because I really didn't enjoy using it as a camera and I don't think I ever will. I really missed my EVF and holding the thing at arms length I found to be a real pain.

 

That said, I can see what poeple see in this type of photography. I mean, who today hasn't got a mobile phone with them. It's small, light and always with you. The camera in these little things get better and better and some have a real knack of taking excellent images with them. I'm just not one of those people.

 

Judge for youselves if these images make the grade. Personally I found them to be acceptable, especially since I had nothing else with me.

Samsung NX10 - Samsung 18-55 f3.5-5.6 OIS

Just posting this last image from this system as I think this is an ok image. Taken at f8 which, after taking numerous images at different apertures, seems to be the optimal aperture for this lens. Again, I can't really fault the quality of the image but it does take me longer to get to this stage than with other newer systems.

My final thoughts on the Samsung system is I believe they far behind their competitors and have lost their way somewhat with the new Galaxy NX. The retail price of €1000+, I don't believe they'll sell too many. They should invest a lot in the camera AF system and get some weight into the cameras themselves. They just feel too plasicky and light.

I personally will not be investing in this system, and I think the NX10 and it's lenses will not be in my inventory much longer. Maybe I can find a new home for it where it will be much more appreciated than by me at present.

Samsung NX10 - Samsung 18-55 f3.5-5.6 OIS

I posted a similar image to this one a caouple of days ago, but from a different system (Nikon V1). I wanted to compare the two systems to see the differences in colours, dynamic range etc. The Nikon system, for me, is the better system, but it is newer and technology doesn't stand still. But if you're after some images for the web or small prints, then there is nothing wrong with the NX system.

Samsung NX10 - Samsung 18-55 f3.5-5.6 OIS

I only took the 18-55 zoom with me on this accasion because I wanted to see what it could do. Looking at these images (at this size) the images look ok but I wouldn't want to print all that large.

Looking at the prices of the Samsung lenses they are all relatively cheap and the prime lenses are very good indeed. Samsung have expanded the range and are still in the process of doing so, but I really believe the camera and it's AF lets the whole system down. They have just announced the Galaxy NX, an Android based camera, but to tell you the truth, I personally don't see any future in it.

Having said that, this camera (or the NX11) would be ideal for someone looking at getting into photography but doesn't want to invest too much money at the start. The Galaxy NX is too expensive for my taste and should be avoided at present. But then, that's just my opinion.

Samsung NX10 - Samsung 18-55 f3.5-5.6 OIS

Samsung NX10 - Samsung 18-55 f3.5-5.6 OIS

On one of my outings I decided to dust off a camera I haven't used for some time, the Samsung NX10. At the time I bought the camera I was looking for something small, light, not too expensive and had a couple of good primes for it. I got a really good deal on the NX10 and it came with the 18-55 f3.5-5.6 kit zoom. I bought the 30 f2 to go with the camera but held out a little longer before deciding to expand the system or not.

The 18-55 kit zoom is on ok lens, nothing special but it does the job. The 30 f2 lens on the other hand is a very good prime and I used it quite a bit after I aquired the system. But, as with everything else, something new comes on the market that has a feature which you really like, and so the older systems get forgotten.

The reason I decided to shelf the NX10 was because of the AF speed. It really isn't all that great and is miles apart from anything on the market today. Dynamic range has its shortcomings too and today you can tell that it is a couple of years since this came onto the market. Build quality is rather plasticy too although the lenses do have a metal mount. It's like your afraid to put the camera down somewhere because you think it's going to come apart in your hands.

To get as much depth of field as possible in the above image I stoped down to f9 but being careful not to stop down too much because of diffraction, I got what I wanted from this image. Everything is in focus.

I think this turned out really well for a P&S. It was really a snapshot taken on the spur of the moment. Again, it's one camera that really has me stumped sometimes. Personally I think there's a minor bug in the firmware somewhere because some images are so blown out or the blacks are so blocked and for no reason at all. Doesn't happen every time but when it does this you can really delete the image. No recovery possible.
