Sometime ago, the vintage digicam virus hit me, and I started a quest: To collect cult-classic vintage digital cameras, which were big hits during the early 2000's, at rock-bottom prices, if possible. Over time, I have managed to collect quite a few of these gems, and here in this test, I tested their performance using my default outdoor shot. I will be testing these cams using various conditions, and these will be shown in other posts, but first, let us look at the contenders.
My testing will be a bit different in that I test the images to see how they would fare when basic sharpening is applied. Some images fare well while some do not with basic enhancements.
An Indoor Event shoot with fast moving subjects, uneven lighting and lots of mobile subjects...and Jollibee! It's still a mystery to me how you can control Jollibee's eyelids. Hmmm :)
I am actually enjoying shooting with the NX300. Colors are great off the cam, and there is very little image noise to be found (up to 3200).
AF is slower quite a bit vs the Olympus M43 cams, but for casual use, the NX300 won't disappoint.
I went to Zambales / Olongapo for the weekend for a wedding. Along the way I decided that I should bring along my NX300 plus my new lens, the NX 30mm.
Along the way, there's the old house of former President Ramon Magsaysay. I stopped over to test this new camera-lens combo.
