My first camera!


Never really spent money on a camera until now. I saw the Samsung nx300, and fell in love with it. From the features, to the design!

I just ordered it yesterday at B&H. Along with a 32 GB SDHC Memory Card Extreme Pro Class 10.

Im really excited for this camera and all the learning i have ahead of me!
Hopefully its a good purchase, haha

Agreed, that looks amazing! I still haven't taken that plunge. I just use my phone or a point and shoot. I'm interested to see what you think once you get it.

Congrats on the purchase! I took the leap from point and shoots and camera phones to an interchangeable lens camera last year and I have been ridiculously happy since. Beware, just like aquariums, photography can be very addicting.

If you don't already have photo editing software that can handle .RAW files I highly recommend you invest in something. I use Adobe Lightroom. Apple Aperture is another popular program. Sometimes they have free trials to test them out. I didn't realize how much they can help recover highlights or shadows from difficult lighting situations.

Enjoy your new camera!

Thanks for the comments!

To runner, im guessing this makes it even a better purchase.
According to reviews, the camera comes with Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 4.

Now you can be an EVIL pimp! Technically not, but the club is open to all mirrorless interchangeable lens shooters.
