Today I’d like to show you how you can use your camera to surf the web. All you need is a Tizen based camera (NX30, NX300, NX300M, NX3000, NX2000, NX mini, …) and a WiFi access point. (Use this on your own risk!)
Note: This is not possible anymore using cameras with the 28MP sensor, like the NX1 and NX500.
I am just back from a longer vacation with my current Samsung NX photo equipment. I used my cameras and lenses intensively and the relatively new Samsung NX30 got some more attention than the last weeks. After some work with the camera I found some additional problems and got used to some useful functionality, that I wasn’t aware of before. With this article I want to give you an impression on my findings in the categories Body, Firmware and Power supply. My first impressions can be found in the Samsung NX30 Hands On / Review. I am going to update my conclusion from the previous article with my latest impressions.
Today I’d like to introduce a new service I developed the last days, the Samsung NX Firmware Update Notification Service. So what is it about? This server regularly (approx. every 8 hours) checks the web for new firmware information and in case a new firmware is found it sends a notification via e-mail. The mail contains the new firmware version, the change log and a download link. You can subscribe to this service and choose which cameras and lenses you are interested to get notifications for. The service is free of charge.
Samsung has announced a new mount with new lenses and a new camera.The new mount is called Samsung NX-M and is incompatible to the Samsung NX mount, but there will be an adapter to use NX lenses with the NX-M mount. Samsung has announced a new camera for the NX-M mount aswell, the Samsung NX mini. They are going to introduce three new lenses in 2014, too.
