I like my DSLR for the most part, but here are some things that I would change about it. For one, I am tired of carrying a giant camera with me to and from events. I would prefer a point-and-shoot with the shutter speed of a DSLR honestly.
The Samsung NX10 hybrid DSLR has turned up and is a camera that falls somewhere between the DSLR and a micro four-thirds camera. I would presume that to mean the camera is smaller than a DSLR but has many of the same features. That sounds like exactly what I need.
Specs are scant at this point, but the thing has an 18-55mm lens and can apparently shoot at up to 7 fps in burst mode. You can count on the thing costing as much or possibly more than your entry level DSLR camera. These micro four-thirds cams are far from cheap.
Update: Samsung have been in touch with the following statement:
“This information was not supplied by Samsung and does not represent an official announcement of the NX10. Final technical specifications and details regarding the camera system will be made available by authorized Samsung representatives at a later date, with the official launch of the product.”
