Samsung EX-1/WB500
 
1 Attachment(s)
Fresh from their success with the APS-C imager based NX-10, Samsung has now gotten underway with the EX-1/WB500 camera that takes on the Panasonic LX3 head-on.

The obvious question is how good is the image quality? It is amazingly good.

So I wanted to post a sample photo, so you can draw your own conclusions. Here is a link to a full resolution copy of the attached photo:

Hi Sarah,

Yup, the EX1/WB500 photos posted by users (including you) are amazing indeed. How do you like the AMOLED screen as far as reproduction of the actual image captured and viewing in bright sunlight?

Hi Sky-

Yes, I do really like the new EX-1 a lot. The AMOLED screen is much better in actual use indoors and outdoors.

That's great to hear since the TL350/WB2000 will have an AMOLED screen. Just hope the image quality on that camera is acceptable. The EX-1 is a little too big to fit in my wife's party purse, but she may have to settle for a larger camera like the EX-1 if the TL350/WB2000 doesn't pan out.

Thanks Sarah,
Sky

Sky-

You cannot go wrong with the EX-1. Like the canon S-90 it has a limited zoom range, but takes wonderful photos.

I wonder how much technology samsung borrowed from the panasonic. Panasonic owns samsung last I heard and I also carry some samsung products such as the hd1000.

hmm, wrong forum. Belongs in the sanyo i guess.

Anyway, this camera looks really good. your pick looks like it captures all light and darks really well. I did notice some color artifact but it's not bad at all since it's shot indoors. Really good technology and amazon users seem to really like this camera.

They certainly "borrowed" (well, actually paid for it) the SONY sensor used in the CANON S90.

I'm sorry for bumping this thread, but as I was disappointed with my Canon SD4000/Ixus 300 HS when it comes to showing the details when zoomed in, I had a look at some sample shots of this Samsung camera. Am I correct when I say that at least to my eyes, this camera preserves details much better? It seems very obvious to me when zoomed in to 100%.

However, it lacks HD video?

camvard-

I am the OP in this thread. You might be interested in the TL-350 if you want HD video. I have a husband whose passion is camcorders so video is not a priority for me at all.
