Samsung Electronics EV-NX3000BEIUS Final Thoughts

"I LOVE the Samsung Electronics EV-NX3000BEIUS."

Does wonderfully with night shots handheld. But, this fps was rather limited. But white balance flips out often. And, the EVF stayed in my bag nearly the entire trip. Low light is extraordinarily good.

"My first real camera."

Ritz Camera DMCG7KK Ritz Camera Black Kit A Final Thoughts

"Lots of freebies."

Overall, its a great deal, with the body and lenses alone. Something I never realized I needed till I had it. So having a backup battery is what I would consider a must. The rest of the bundle seems okay. Low Light video is very well done.

Fujifilm X-T10 Silver First Impressions

"I'm not kidding."

An amazing Samsung Electronics Mirrorless Camera when paired with the right lens. But for me it is the low light improvements. I'm also really enjoying the Fujifilm film simulation.

Fujifilm X-T10 Silver Final Thoughts

"Overall pretty good."

Users need to be open-minded and find new ways to use the Fujifilm X-T10 Silver. That's why I replaced the stock lens caps with Fujifilm equivalents. So far performance is fabulous. As an old pro I therefore wanted a second body. I can't overstate how nice it is to have a one camera solution.

"Its a tool."

Button feeling and placement is great. It came with all the products it describes. Needed to get it in time to experiment & get used to it. Something I never realized I needed till I had it. Even the focus lock button on Panasonic lenses can be customized.

"Hands down."

Great camera and bundle from this deal. The whole package is well thought out. Even with the lens, battery and SD card, it weighs very little. More megapixels would be nice too when cropping BIFs. Great camera and bundle from this deal.

The camera is fast, sharp, and most important to me - light. The first day owning it I was taking amazing shots on Auto mode. Button feeling and placement is great. Even with the lens, battery and SD card, it weighs very little. But, this fps was rather limited.

"Small and compact."

I wouldn't trade this camera for anything! The K&M 600021360 is by far my favorite camera since the Nikon D700. But white balance flips out often. Right now, this is the best of the breed. So having a backup battery is what I would consider a must.

"Worth every penny."

I wouldn't trade this camera for anything! I chose to shoot most outdoor shots with an aperture of + or - f/5. The Sigma 937317 is by far my favorite camera since the Nikon D700.

Higher ISO produces very usable images, even at ISO 12800. The flash feels lighter than my Andoer flash for my other camera. The whole package is well thought out. Still getting used to the buttons. Wonderful color, clarity and detail.

Fujifilm X-T30 Body Black Final Thoughts

"That is fine for me."

Camera takes beautiful pictures. I've added some sample photos taken with this camera and a 50mm f1. And, the EVF stayed in my bag nearly the entire trip. Since this is a new camera not all Fujifilm accessories will work. Mirrorless has come into it's own.
