I bought a little Samsung NX300 to go to the Lebanon with in January, having left my Canon and kit at home. I am really enjoying using it. It has all sorts of clever features which I am only just starting to understand. So far it has produced some great results. I bought it because it has a full manual mode and a fairly fast lense. I'm enjoying the other gizmo's. One touch on the back of the screen gives auto focus, exposure control and shutter release. A couple of more touches and photo's can be uploaded to the internet, so long as there is a wireless connection. Good lenses too. Just bought a converter (about £12) online which will enable me to use my old FD lenses too. May buy a converter for my EOS Lenses - let's see how we get on with the FD series for a start.
I like these family snaps - my boy and youngest walking the final mile home after a good leg stretch with the dog. And below - getting ready for a portrait shot with the children and Pippa. We never did get a good portrait! The Samsung can shoot multiple shots in very quick succession - faster than my 5DII for sure. It can be fun just shooting a blurr of photographs and seeing later what has been captured. I like this:
