Samsung NX500 Epiphany — Why Not Settle For An APS-C Sensor?

by Anura Guruge

“DPReview” side-by-side camera comparison. It is DIFFICULT to ignore sensor size.


As with the Fuji X-T2 the Samsung NX1 was another camera I lusted after for months and then, at the last minute, shied away because of technical (as opposed to financial) considerations.

I will also readily admit that my requirements, fancies and demands tend to change, sometimes within days — and have over my 2 year saga for a set of long-term cameras. Maybe I will never have a set of cameras I keep for that long. C’est la vie.

Anywho … I think I had dismissed the Samsung NX500 BECAUSE it did not have a viewfinder.

That requirement has changed in the last month! Since I have had the Nikon P900 I have rarely used the viewfinder. So I now know that I can live with just a good LCD.

So the Samsung NX500 is back in the fray.

It has phase-detect AF and I really want phase-detect. And it is an APS-C.

And what I am looking for is a compact.

Still not sure what my eventual BIG camera will be.

Amazon (AMZN) $1050 Options Now Available — Scary But Exciting.

This is scary BUT in a good way. AMZN is up about $30 in 3 days. But it closed today at $829.05.

A $1050 option 77-days from now is saying that there are those that expect it to go up $221 dollars in 77-days — a 26.7% increase.

Yes, I know that a bunch of analysts hiked the price target to $1,000.

But the possibility of $1,050 before Christmas.

That would be quite the Christmas for some. {SMILE}

WordPress.com Changes Domain Name Buying Option — Now You Have To Purchase A Hosting Plan.

Click to aceess ‘wordpress.com’.


Up until recently you could buy a domain name from ‘wordpress.com’ for $18/year and use it with your FREE ‘wordpress.com’ Website/blog. And I have done that very successfully and to my satisfaction.

I found out on Wednesday of this week that ‘wordpress.com’ NO LONGER offers this option (unless you are a long-term established account holder). Now you have to buy a plan, $36/year minimum, and that includes a ‘FREE’ domain name.

IF you run into this as a ‘problem’ contact ‘wordpress.com’ they do try to help out.

Hope this helps.
