Samsung NX = Fujifilm S6Pro ?

Just a speculation...

On the one side, we've got 3 infos from Samsung about the NX, half a year ago, one month ago and several days age. If to compare them and if to analyse technologies and timings - becomes evident that shortly after start of the NX project, Samsung purchased some team, having this project almost ready.

On the other side, two years ago there was a leak that the next Fuji's top camera woud be mirrorless and it will appear soon.

On the third side, half a year ago Fuji announced, that it concentrates on compacts with ECR sensor, that is completely unusable with focal plane shutters because of sequentially working dual capacities on the sensor.

At last, I don't know any other team close enough to build such a camera, that could be purshased by Samsung.

1 + 1 + 1 + 1 = ?

Does Fuji have any experience in making a new mount or 135 lenses? What is Samsung going to do with the Fuji DSLR team?

Fuji's 2-years old leak about S6 (or S10) included both terms "mirrorless" and "new mount".

Do you have any source on that (together with a source that says that EXR is incompatible with a focal plane shutter...?

Not that I don't believe you but I would love to have some insight...

No. Just my own comparison af many well-known small things.

Yes, I've got a small piece of inside informnation on the EXR sensor that says just that in indirect manner. And there also was Fujifilm's last year interview on Fotokina, where it was said directly that the EXR technology will never be used for large sensors.

Interesting observation. My only concern: A Japanese team (Fuji) wouldn't work in Korea (Samsung) ...

EXR won't be made in APS-C format [too bad!]. End of the rumor.

"working with" yes. Being "the working team" no. Samsung said that NX is done by them. So, the team must sit in Korea. Really cannot be the Fuji engineers. Not if you know how Japanese think about Koreans...
