Slide show function is provided.
We’ve seen the UI interface now let’s take a closer look at the quality, additional functions, and movie recording.
The 20mm and 20-50mm lenses released this time concentrate on wide angle shots. As you can see in the pictures they can take landscape shots quite well
The 20mm and 20-50mm lenses support the i-Function and have great quality, so users won’t have any (problems) By using the advanced sensor in the NX100, it has great corner quality. I think this camera has the best results for a mirrorless camera.
This was shot with the portrait mode, it came out so well. Shot in the shade it has great natural colors.
I personally use an external flash most of the time when shooting indoor shots. However, if it’s not possible to use a flash, I adjust the ISO, but noise is always a problem.
Zoom lenses it is possible to blur out the background easily.
This is the IOS test. It can go up to ISO 6400, but I found the noise to be too great and in annoyed me. Even with the noise reduction.
The NX100 has the universal hot shot and supports TTL perfectly, so after attaching the synchronizer, it can be used in a studio or something. (I took shots in a studio using 400x2200W light source, and it worked perfectly.)
It was unsatisfactory that it doesn’t support a optical viewfinder. If it had supported an external optical viewfinder, I could have used it in a studio without any inconvenience, but I couldn’t take any good shots with the display when I adjusting the brightness or exposure with it.
The frame mode was a big help in setting the focus when I used manual focus. It would zoom in on the frame letting me fix it very easily.
These images were taken in a studio. And I think the quality of them was as good as any professional cameras quality.
In order get more natural colors various White Balance menus are provided. After the test, I could see that the auto white balance was quite accurate. And by changing the temperature manual I could add in red or blue tones.
Picture Wizard which is the same as Photo Style in a compact camera is supported.
Smart Filter can be applied to pictures already taken. It supports vignetting, miniature, fish eye, sketch, defog, dot pattern, and Smart Focus filter. Unlike Picture Wizard which changes the color of the picture. When applying Smart Filter, a new file is made and the size becomes smaller.
Below images are linked to the original pictures.
This is a Video recorded in HD, it was a little annoying that the depth was controlled by the focus ring. But look at the quality.
You can connect the camera to a A/V instrument. It supports TV-OUT as well.
It’s playing the images and movies in the best quality.
With Intelli-Studio users can look at their picture, and videos. Organize them, and edit them. Also, the best part is that it connects to the GPS, and you can see where the picture where taken with Google Maps.
Just right click and you can activate all these views.
Professional photo & movie editing software like Photoshop, Premier, or Vegat are really convenient for professionals, but actually very difficult for beginners to use. Because Intelli-Studio supports some editing functions for pictures and movies, beginners can make their own images and movies.
This is the sharing function and it supports upload on YouTube, Flickr, Facebook and email transfer. Users don’t need to go to each site to upload videos. With Intelli-Studio, it’s easy to upload UCC movies.
It supports not only JPEG, but also RAW, and for easy image editing, Samsung RAW converter 4 is included.
The great quality, mobility, and various additional functions will satisfy a lot of users, I expect. At first it wasn’t my favorite design, but after a few weeks I started to really like the look.
The biggest strength of the NX100 is the great quality. Both the 20mm and 20-50mm lenses have the great quality enough for professional purpose
The newly added i-Function is also very important. All the primary functions can be controlled by using the lens, so it will give satisfaction. It took me a bit to get used to it but after I did I found that it worked very smoothly.
It’s a very small camera, but the size doesn’t matter, because the quality is so high. With the AMOLED screen all my pictures looked great, and with the newly added features like the GPS, EVF, and Flash this camera was pretty good.
I think this camera could be a leading in the mirrorless camera race of 2011. Its light, quality is high, convenient to use, and has all the function of a digital camera. I recommend this camera to a person that is looking for a high end digital camera but doesn’t want to deal with the heavy burden of a DSLR. Also it pretty cheap for a mirrorless interchangeable camera.
