    A pity it has no EVF… the brown leather looks really nice!

      The price is also nice – $750 for a kit with lens and Lightroom 4.

      I like the box in black, too!

    So much for Nikon capitalizing on Usain grabbing a D4 at the Olympics. Wonder how much Samsung is paying Mr. Bolt for the campaign.

    • http://photorumors.com/ PhotoRumors

      Yes, Nikon missed that one.

      • Joe

        Well, at least they’ve still got Kelso from “That ’70s Show.”

          LOL, I wanted to vote your comment down, but you get an ‘up’ vote for making me chuckle.

      Nikon should’ve locked him down with a contract after that. Come on marketing department.

  • CJ

    Sure, it’s fast and furious, just like their spoke person, BUT, it won’t last long, just like their spoke person.

  • CJ

    It’s a nice gift item in the Walmart.
    Now, let’s go get a real camera like Nikon or Canon.

  • CJ

    Nikon was smart not to use Mr. Bolt, he has not lasting power like a marathoner.

    • schufosi777

      He is a decent 400m runner though and thats a lot further than most people could jog.

    this nx line is too black for me

  • Z

    Is the new camera capable of keeping focus when Mr. Bolts is running fast??

    • D5100 owner

      nope

    • Nishi Drew

      It probably goes ahead and takes a “fast” photo before he goes running out of focus, don’t worry about catching up to him you already got a shot!

      Yes, that’s the point

  • gerryfoto.de

    Samasung????? ;-)

    If he is the New Face..Well I just won’t buy one. How abt maybe Kate Upton.

  • Goose

    by the looks of it, Usain bolt is ecstatic about this product.

  • ArtK

    Money talks – Bolt runs

  • MichelCapture

    Sad people copy facts. Bolt took pictures at the Olympics with Nikon…
    Samsung made a silly choice.
    Ever looked at Epke Zonderland?
    Take a look at his Olympic result, nobody can do this in the whole world!

    • http://Flickr.com/inthemist InTheMist

      I had to google him, but pretty awesome. But, um, is he a photographer too?

      • Mice

        No, that D4 was a photographer’s camera.

        • http://Flickr.com/inthemist InTheMist

          I mean what does Epke Zonderland have to do with photography or Usain Bolt or his famous D4 photos, or photography in general, in a post about Samsung.

    Is this a NX200 on steroids?

    Will be interesting to see how good the 3D photos and video from the NX 300 Samsung camera is.
