Samsung updates

Samsung published a press release this week to announced the US pricing for their latest NX mirrorless cameras - not sure what they had in mind since the prices have been available from the day of announcement:

Engadget and The Verge recently posted hands-on review for the new Samsung NX cameras.

After talking to Samsung's Senior Vice President of Mobile Entertainment, Engadget now reports that the company will continue the developing and manufacturing of point and shoot cameras. A week ago the WSJ reported that "low-end compact camera offerings will gradually be reduced, as we are now concentrating on the mirrorless segment".

    Is it just me or the prices seem a bit too high?

    • Renato S.

      Shouldn’t the NX be going against the NEX-F3, Panasonic GF5 and Olympus E-PM1 instead of NEX-5n and GX1?

      And I think that the NX210 that should ne going against the NEX-5h, GX1, E-PL3, etc.

      Samsung is mirroring their prices after Olympus line up E-PL3 ($699), E-P3 ($899) and E-M5 ($1099), but as they are behind and trying to catch the other mirrorless cameras, they should make the prices more reasonable, more like Panasonic and Sony prices.

      I think that the NX1000 should be matching the Panasonic GF5 and Sony NEX-F3, while the NX210 should be matching the NEX-5n and GX1.

      But for some reason Samsung is mirroring their cameras after Olympus E-PL3($699), E-P3($899) and E-M5($1099). But the problem is that they are not Olympus and they are already far behind in the mirrorless market and even claiming that they will be up to the top of it in a couple of years. But if you are in the position Samsung is now, you can’t overprice your products, it’s not being far behind gives you and edge in price.

      Good luck for them.

    wow, a samsung camera for almost the same amount as I paid for my D7000?

    Samsung needs to provide a stellar product, with a stellar support system for my dollars. They may get there some day, but they are not there yet. I wish them luck as I welcome any competition.

    Have seen samsung do this before with phones, make a product that looks nearly exactly the same as another product (Sony’s NEX series) then call their product something very similar to their competition, the NX series.

    Typical Samsung.

      except that NX cameras were launched a couple month or so before the NEX cameras…
