  1. ‘ve owned the NX300 for more than three months. I replaced the generally-okay 20-50mm kit lens with the 30mm f2 and the 50-200mm f4 lenses, and found this to be a much superior and satisfying combination that is relatively compact but nonetheless capable of consistently excellent images. (Unfortunately, after just three or four uses, the tiny, plastic slide switch used to select AF or MF on the 50-200mm lens broke when I changed positions. I was surprised and very disappointed to learn that–without inspecting the lens!–Samsung considered this to “physical damage” not covered under the warranty.)

    The NX300 menu structure is more user-friendly than that on the Sony NEX cameras and far more intelligible than the Olympus MILCs. I agree with the assertion that in some respects Samsung released the NX300 before it was fully developed, finding this shortcoming most evident in after-sales product support.

    Overall, I find the NX300 to be a very good camera–which will improve to “great” if/when they release a compatible EVF–that has a selection of very good, reasonably priced lenses. While I’m therefore generally satisfied with my purchase, I’d be much happier if Samsung would direct some much needed focus on its product/customer support infrastructure.

  2. This is the worst review of nx300 I ever read. I own the camera and the flaws you encountered are either non existent or are simply due to a bad sample you had. The iso 100 “issue” is probably due to the selection of smart range mode in your settings. This could also explain the blue hue in high iso. Actually, this camera produces wonderful, detailed and almost noise free pics up to iso 8000, which is outstanding. Iq is better than nex and on par with fuji. Af is much faster than both and so are the generic operations.

    The camera is all but for smartphone shooters…it’s a tool appealing pro or semi-pro not wanting a bulky dslr.
