"The introduction of the Samsung DualView camera in 2009 was one of the most successful digital camera introductions in Samsung's history," said Mr. SJ Park, CEO of Samsung Digital Imaging Company. "The TL225 and the TL220 broke new ground and surpassed industry expectations thanks to a combination of technologies that directly addressed how families and consumers take pictures today. We're proud to add to the momentum generated by the launch of these cameras by extending the DualView family with the TL210 and TL205 that will bring new features to the table and be available at a competitive price to accommodate a wide range of budgets."
This was my first opportunity to spend some quality time with a Samsung interchangeable lens camera, and I was really looking forward to it. On paper, Samsung NX cameras have a very competitive feature-set and excellent performance specs. I was excited to see how the NX30 performs compared to other mirrorless cameras I've used -- especially at action performance and image quality. Samsung sent me the NX30 in a kit with an 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 image-stabilized zoom lens. The camera is spec'd with a 20-megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor, built-in Wi-Fi with NFC, 9 frames per second high-speed burst, hybrid auto focus, a built-in electronic viewfinder (EVF), 3-inch AMOLED touchscreen display, i-Function control system, and Full HD video at 60 frames per second. It definitely looks great on paper. But do those specs measure up to a great camera in real life?
I really don’t see how it could sell well in Japan, given the fact that Korean cameras are not being sold here. I have never seen a samsung camera (nor TVs, etc.) in a Japanese store. So the answer is: it will not sell very well. You’d better look at the Chinese market, which is way more receptive of Korean stuff…
