I Order A Samsung NX500 — They Are Getting Hard To Source Since Being Discontinued.
But over the last few days I have been giving the Samsung NX500 some serious thought. It is the best mirrorless compact that I could get — and it is now discontinued!
I have been checking availability and last night it was getting a ‘scary’ — a bit like when I was trying to get my hands on the Nikon P900.
The Samsung NX500 only appears to be available from two places — Amazon or eBay, and in each case (even from Amazon) via unknown S. Korean distributors. Amazon, at one point last night, was saying that there was currently only one in stock. I did not want to take the risk.
And given Amazon’s 30-day return window I can’t put it aside till I finish the book. Yes, a slight dilemma, but as they say a nice problem to deal with.
First time I will have had two cameras since Saturday, April 9, 2016 — that would have been 179 days ago (~6 months)!
It would be good to have two cameras because I do like to alternate. Plus the Nikon P900 really is too big to take to restaurants, waiting rooms etc. and I like to have a camera with me most times.
So you have been warned. Unless I hate it day 1, or it is defective, and as such I am forced to return it, there is likely to be lots of Samsung NX500 pictures that will be on show soon.
