    Gold plating actually makes it even less desirable than it already was. This is all Hasselbad’s fault

    Gold plated and Samsung…two words/phrases that do not go together. Like Gold plated edition of Hundai.

  • Hubertus_Bigend

    While Fuji, Olympus, Panasonic and Sony are further extending their technological lead, Samsung stays behind – and introduces one of their unattractive cameras fitted with gold plating. Things don’t look good for Samsung in the mirrorless world.

    it is so cool , I think it’s a gorgeous camera , I hated the normal NX300 design but this version is so cool.

    I think we’d consider “where” this is going to happen.
    Samsung is running now huge branding campaign in one of the richest, and economically fast growing, area of the world which is the Middle East.
    Target is to position all their products (phones, computers, tv sets, home appliances, healthcare etc) as high class and “desireable”.
    In this respect, I see a gold plated camera to fit pretty well with the average definition of “luxury” for rich people there.

    But, after all, I’m not a market analyst. Just a frequent traveller of those countries

      You rationality, cool-headedness and informed opinion has no place on internet forums

    I’m quite sure someone at Samsung looked at the old gold-plated-with-snakeskin Leicas, and thought “hey, we should do that!”

    I guess they don’t realize that photographers make jokes about that stuff, and it taints Leica’s reputation.

    One tiny little correction…it costs SAR 4,000 – roughly USD 1100..I was at axiomtelecom earlier today..

    As far as function..I haven’t tried it..but the reviews sound promising..not sure though..
