    This morning before going to work

    Macro Mode with AF turned On
    ISO 100
    f3.1
    1/125


    37


    below cropped
    38



    --------------------------


    the images from Day 1 up to now seem to be coming out of the camera with a slightly hard edge .... but I doubt if its from the lens and suspect software in-camera sharpening overdose as the cause (cam was set at '0' Sharpness level)

    no sharpening applied in PS

    Lunchtime homework today was going through the DOFs .........

    4 distances of 'targets' were set up all about 8-10cm apart from one another

    Distance between lens and first nearest target was about 13-15cm

    Camera could not stop down beyond f6.7
    there are about 13 clicks of apatures between 1.8 through 6.7 ..... I just choose 5 of them
    Shot at wide 24mm

    wow sweet prices !!!!

    let me know if your extra battery is OEM and if it can be charged in-camera ......... my extra battery is OEM and having problems getting it to fully charge the last couple of times I tried.... cam might (suspect) accept only original (coded) batteries

    After almost a week with the EX1..... the relationship I've had with it was interesting..... most cams that pass through our hands .... we're up and running with it in a couple of hours..... the EX-1 needs a little more time to get used to.

    Having said that .... there has not been any situations where I had to navigate more than normal to get to what I want.... Samsung has done a good job of keeping the most important functions very near to the user from a navigation point of view

    Will comment more on this volatile 'love' affair after the weekend ...... last weekend I was silently cursing at it a few times..... today... it feels like a comfortably broken-in glove in my hand .... all set up to my needs ..... sort of like breaking in a leather Brooks bicycle saddle .............. the feeling's like that..... a bit of an adjustment curve .... but once you're comfortable with it.......

    No more test images to check quality of this or quality of that......... will be spending ALOT more time shooting real images .............. will post the images here

    Hey guys who've bought the EX-1.... PLEASE feel free to contribute your comments and feedback here too !!! There's currently no Samsung sub-forum here in CS.

    Not asking for Samsung fanboys only..... share what you like, or dont like or wish-to-haves with this cam

    Hi Ed,

    Appreciate you taking the time/effort to post your photos. Very nice!
    I need some advise regarding my next cam purchase. Was looking at LX3 cos I need wide angle & good low light. DSLR are out, too bulky to move around.
    How do you compare this to the LX3 when shooting indoor low light?
    Thanks.

    I think it's 699 - this is from a scanned pricelist.

    Hi,

    I'm seriously looking to get this cam too. I came across a review in a Korean website, have no clue whatsoever in their texts. The pictures and samples however may give us an idea of the Samsung EX1's capabilities. Here's the webby.
