"Major issues"on by Pixonti
Pros Great potential, the design is good and feels solid
Cons This camera does not work as documented
Summary This camera does not work as documented. I've attempted to work with two different cameras of the same model (Samsung NX1000, the white one, not the pink one), and they both have the same issues. The only way to shoot in continuous mode (8fps or 3fps) is in manual focus. The auto focus is very slow, and waits to shoot until the lens is brought out of focus and then refocuses, even with the AF assist turned off. The documentation says that the camera will continually focus on a subject, even in motion, while shooting the the continuous mode. Also, the ability to connect to social sites does not work at all. I can send photos through the email application, but cannot connect to Facebook, Picasa, or YouTube. And while it is supposed to be able to connect to photobucket, I do not have an account there, so I did not try that. However, I would expect that this would not work either, since none of the other ones work. I have contacted Samsung regarding these issues, and they tell me that this has been escalated, but even after returning the camera and getting a new one (and waiting for several weeks) I still have not received a call from the about the issues with this camera. I'm returning it, and getting a different camera. This should work as documented.
