Samsung NX2 - is it real?

"Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. Fool me thrice...?"
Samsung gave up on their DSLRs. After 6 years (and a new system), they have up on consumer cameras. But suuuure, they're going to re-launch the NX and everything will be juuuust fine ;)

SR II on K-1 MKII will offer Dynamic (handheld) Pixel Shift Resolution

All that's needed is a small hardware change - perhaps a new gyro detector, or a slightly altered SR mechanism - to prevent this feature from working on the K-1. So far evolutions on the SR - the AA simulator, Pixel Shift, 5-axis SR - were made through hardware changes.
I'd like if this isn't the case, and we'll get it through a firmware update. But I'm afraid it might be.

Yet Kenspo says they're working on it... which makes it more than a wish.
By the way, while it might not be ready this year, it's too early to know - even for those with low-level inside info. IMO. I don't get this hurry in "deciding" that we "know" the plan for the entire upcoming fiscal year, before CP+.


Except for disagreeing, we agree - or something like that. I repeat: they're not the same.

Chris, you're writing about my wishful thinking while doing a campaign - on two forums - trying to convince people of your preconceived idea. That's not cool.

I believe they'll eventually make a new APS-C flagship, because:
- they told us so
- the KP doesn't include several of the K-3's flagship features, and there's no reason why they would make a permanent step back
- I don't believe they're making the DA* 11-18mm for the KP
- Kenspo told us so
If that's too weak for you but your vague idea about the KP being a K-1 APS-C equivalent is good...

There is definitely room for an upper level FF DSLR, however I don't see it happening right now. Later? I don't know; stuff must happen.
Proof by analogy is fraud by the way, an upper level FF DSLR and an APS-C flagship are different things.

I'm not sure we'll be able to settle this APS-C flagship issue in a few days. We might have a full year ahead, of Chris Mak telling us how it won't ever come ;)

Aaand... I said so since the KP was announced ;) Not a D500 camera, but something higher up than the K-3 II - there's a lot of room between the two.

But let's properly quote Asahiman:
"That's the correct direction, but I don't think that APS-C pro body is the next target for Pentax.

More a better K-P than a new high end like D500."
He's expressing an opinion, not giving us an accurate outlook on the Pentax camera roadmap.

Absolutely. With an update or two, but still a KP. Isn't this the idea, that Pentax will never make a true K-3 II replacement - let alone a more advanced APS-C flagship? :rolleyes:


Yeah. Right. Precisely what I was talking about.


I said so since the KP was announced. The KP seems designed to leave room for a more advanced model.

Anyway, enjoy yours ;) It might be a while until the camera Kenspo is talking about would be on the market.
And, whatever camera or system you'll be using, I'm looking forward to see your images.

Who's making more stuff up?
Don't think for a second that Pentax with an APS-C-restricted mount would be a second Fujifilm. No, they would be Pentax with an APS-C-restricted mount, struggling their way up with intense competition and a hostile user base. No marketing to speak of, no hype. No way of convincing people that a FF-sized $1900+ APS-C is all they ever need ;)

You know me so well! ;)

But really, if they'd use a new mount, they should go with what they feel is optimal. Putting K-mount lenses directly on the MILC (i.e. at the wrong register distance) is something you want to avoid. And since FF and APS-C prices are now overlapping, not restricting the new mount to APS-C should be seriously considered.
This is a decision with long term consequences.

@Class A:
You said: "post-processing should occur outside the camera". It's only logical to conclude that you believe one can get similar or better results outside the camera. The alternative doesn't make much sense.

I'm not discussing theoretically, I'm not discussing principles - I'm discussing results. Maybe that is the problem here. I'm expecting those concerned about the presence of an Accelerator Unit to point out to an image and say: "look, this is something I do not want applied on my images; I can do better without it". Like those investigating Sony's star eater were doing.

Sorry for getting you upset; but seeing what it does on APS-C, I would have liked it in my K-1.

So you know as a fact that you can do at least as good by processing a K-1 RAW, than the K-1 Mk II does with (supposedly) the same sensor and the Accelerator Unit?
Without seeing a single image taken with the Mk II?


I'm sure you do, we're both posting here for a while; but still, this discussion about "baked" and "massaged" RAWs is designed to create negative emotions. Not as bad as "crippled", I'll give you that.

BTW. Am I right to notice that people who've seen the AU in action (either in the K-70 or KP) are happy with it?

It has no definition. Its purpose is to generate some negative emotions regarding a new Pentax product.

I would understand if we had discovered some sort of "star eater" (for those unfamiliar, it's a compulsory noise reduction applied by some Sony cameras, resulting in stars disappearing from astrophoto images).
But all we have right now are two cameras using this Accelerator Unit, with very good high ISO/low light performance.

So the technical expertise deciding that K-1 Mark II is no good can be resumed to two words: "baked" and "massaged".

I'm simply pointing out about the contradiction between complaining that there's no new top-level APS-C, and that the D FA* 50mm is too large and costly.

IMO it's not too large and costly for a top-level APS-C, the lack of which seems to be why people are upset these days.
