Further confirming the slow, painful demise of Samsung cameras, both Adorama and Best Buy have almost every Samsung NX lens listed at ‘closeout’ prices, including some third party glass.[Read More…]
Storing photos while traveling can be tricky business. That’s why Samsung introduced its T-series hard drive lineup, the latest of which is now capable storing up to 2TB of storage using flash memory (no moving parts, thus less room for hard drive failure when dropped).[Read More…]

Rumors were spreading fast yesterday that Nikon acquired Samsung’s mirrorless technology, but an official statement from the Korean giant denies the NX tech will be changing hands.

Despite stressing that this announcement will only affect the German market, phasing out of the largest economy in Europe seems like a strong statement regarding the company’s future steps.
