Future of the NX102
High speed Contrast AF which allows cool live view shooting
As a mirror-less interchangeable lens camera, the contrast AF speed is one of the most importantfeatures, because live view shot is the main function. People say the contrast AF speed of the NX10is high, so I tested it with the NX10 which has been released in Korea.
High Speed AF without feeling any stress
Face recognition AF mode
I heard the speed of the contrast AF is high. The actual AF with 18-55mm F3.5-5.6 OIS and 50-200mm F4-5.6 ED OIS lenses was really cool and fast. Looking at the operation of the lens, becausethey are inner focus types, there’s no movement looking and it seems the part of the lens componentsmoves quickly and set the focus to me. I could see the great focusing algorithm without needlessoperation.In the initial setting Multi AF, the AF area is concentrated on the center (About 1/4 of the screen) andthis simple composition might be related to the fast AF. Among 15 AF areas, it might set the focus onthe closest thing to the camera.It has Face Recognition AF as well. It can recognize up to 10 faces. But Face Recognition AF keepsrecognizing faces once it recognizes them, but when re-focusing, there was some time delay. Foryour reference, when recording a move, AF can be used by half shutter before shooting, and whilerecording, it’s possible by preview button. IS(Image Stabilization) is a lens shift type with 3 levels. Ithas 2 lenses 18-55mm and 50-200mm which have been released together with the NX10.In conclusion, the speed is surprisingly fast and very practical as a APS-C CMOS camera.
Future of the NX103
High Quality as a APS-C camera
The NX10 has an APS-C size CMOS like DSLRs. Moreover, Samsung is a company producingCMOS. For the image quality of the NX10, I’ve checked images taken.
