Samsung GX-10 - wow!

Discussion in 'Samsung' started by Sam, May 4, 2007.

  1. Sam(sung? - a tribute perhaps, or do you work for them, or is it just
    a happy coincidence?), you've made a strong claim that would be far
    better served by examples. And they should be easy to post - in fact
    one wonders why you haven't, given that you infer you have closely
    examined and compared similar scenes.

    Like Pete, I am a little puzzled by your angry defence and sudden
    appearance - only one post ever? Forgive the cynicism (and call me a
    monkey too if it makes you feel better), but given manufacturers are
    known to plant these sort of posts, can you offer anything to prove
    you aren't in that category? It is also a tiny bit puzzling that you
    claim to be an owner of both cameras (why?), but also say that you
    have spent "a couple of years trying cameras from Pentax Nikon and
    Fuji" .. Do you buy to try?

    Frankly, if you are after the best quality it is already well known
    that (most of?) the Pentaxes give their best from Raw, so I'm not sure
    why this is such a huge deal.

    FWIW I own neither camera, so have no axes to grind...

    The seething anger of those with personal vested interests in products
    that get criticized (or even mildly compared!) never ceases to amaze.
    People really do have to learn how to separate their emotions from
    cameras.

    FWIW, and without wishing to be unduly rude, I don't actually give a flying
    fukc *what* you think. I have used the Samsung over the bank holiday and
    obtained some really nice jpg's - and that's good enough for me.

    As far as I'm concerned, you, Pete, and every other no-lifer here who just
    wants to create an argument for argument's sake can crawl away and die
    (preferably slowly and painfully)

    I posted my views for the benefit of those who might be considering the
    GX-10 - not for you and your fellow anal retentives to minutely examine for
    ulterior motives.

    Cheers.

    I'm afraid that some of the Pentax crowd get *extremely* pissed when it's
    discovered that Samsung have managed to implement a JPG algorithm that
    solves the perennial complaint about Pentax's own JPGS - that they are soft.

    Well, Pentax JPG's *are* soft - soft as butter, when compared to other
    DSLR's. They respond to sharpening (to some degree) but they never equal
    (let alone exceed) the JPG's produced by, for example, Nikon.

    Samsung, however, *have* genuinely managed to produce a huge improvement -
    sharper, more defined, not as ultra-sharp as those from a D200 - but pretty
    close.

    However, as most Pentax owners are petty camera-snobs at heart, it galls
    them to the point of insanity to think that a johnny-come-lately camera
    company like Samsung could excel Pentax (albeit that almost any JPG could
    excel Pentax ;)

    But Samsung have done so - and I know it for a fact, having owned both a K10
    and a GX-10.

    What's more, the DNG format used by Samsung produces very little vertical
    noise banding, and that which is present is completely eliminated when the
    DNG is opened in Lightroom - unlike either of the Pentax raw formats, which
    no amount of PP can rescue from unsightly banding.

    So, with much better JPG's and an absence of noise banding on the GX-10 - no
    wonder the Pentax crowd are feeling touchy! - I'd be a bit pissed myself if
    I was in their shoes ;)

    Go Samsung!!

    If that's an example of not being unduly rude,
    You're one crazy, mixed up, arrogant dude.

    In addition, you're confused, and don't appear to be able to
    properly control your replies. You did NOT reply to Pete. You
    replied to '', and simply copied and pasted
    from his message, without adding the necessary leading 'quote'
    characters that distinguish between mark's reply and yours. For
    anyone unable to see mark's original reply, his words in the above
    quotes end with :

    : FWIW I own neither camera, so have no axes to grind...

    and yours begin with :
    So sorry. A better writer wouldn't have invited such criticism.
    As long as you're unaware that your replies do this (or don't care),
    you'll find much more critical examination of your future replies.

    Nope, no confusion at all. Perhaps you missed "(or don't care)"?
    It's nice to see though that you not only care about Little Bobby D.
    but your spelling as well. Kinda like how Condi cared about being
    well dressed while N.A. was inundated. :)

    Because you're mine
    Stop the things you do
    Heheheh
    I ain't lyin'

    Yeah
    I can't stand no running around
    I can't stand no putting me down

    Because you're mine, oh yeah" -- Screamin' Jay Hawkins

    The fact is, Samsung and Sony with their resources could crush any
    camera company outside of Canon if they wanted to.

    On the day I was born, the nurses all gathered 'round
    And they gazed in wide wonder, at the joy they had found
    The head nurse spoke up, and she said leave this one alone
    She could tell right away, that I was bad to the bone
    Bad to the bone
    Bad to the bone
    B-B-B-B-Bad to the bone
    B-B-B-B-Bad
    B-B-B-B-Bad
    Bad to the bone

    I broke a thousand hearts, before I met you
    I'll break a thousand more baby, before I am through
    I wanna be yours pretty baby, yours and yours alone
    I'm here to tell ya honey, that I'm bad to the bone
    Bad to the bone
    B-B-B-Bad
    B-B-B-Bad
    B-B-B-Bad
    Bad to the bone

    I make a rich woman beg, I'll make a good woman steal
    I'll make an old woman blush, and make a young woman squeal
    I wanna be yours pretty baby, yours and yours alone
    I'm here to tell ya honey, that I'm bad to the bone
    B-B-B-B-Bad
    B-B-B-B-Bad
    B-B-B-B-Bad
    Bad to the bone

    Acshully, it wasn't drivel, nor was it meant to start a flame-fest. bit to
    give an honest opinion of two closely related cameras.

    The Samsung *does* produce superior jpg's to the K10D, and the banding issue
    *is* virtually non-existent with the GX-10.

    You may not wish/choose to believe it - but it remains the truth,
    nonetheless. Unless you have had experience with both cameras, how can you
    dismiss it as 'drivel'?

    Indeed I did - since Pete waded in like a pugnacious dickhead, I decided to
    have some fun with him. That doesn't detract from the accuracy of my
    original post, though.

    I love wallowing in the mire of Usenet - it's almost certainly a deeply
    repressed fetishist urge with peculiar sexual overtones..........but when
    people like Pete waggle their anus's so invitingly - what on earth is one
    supposed to do!?...

    On the one hand, I don't doubt you, but on the other hand: Where are the
    example images? A/B comparisons?

    Sam, a few brief suggestions for your next venture into Usenet...

    1. Learn how to quote/refer to other posts. It's not rocket science.

    2. When posting anonymously, you don't have to misspell naughty
    words. But if you think it gives you a devil-may-care attitude, go
    for it...

    3. Don't Lie. (And avoidance of questions gives us the answers.. -
    you may need to think about that one.) For instance, it's now very
    obvious that you never owned a Pentax K10D.


    Now maybe you should add some more cool words, and say that I'm
    "pwned", ok, Mr Credibility?

    PS - I really liked the part about "I don't actually give a flying
    fukc *what* you think", followed by the lengthy, but meaningless,
    tirade.

    (O:

    I'm far too well brought up to simply type such things as, You are a
    fucking twat' - even though you self evidently are.



    Well, you've managed to surprise me! - just *what* makes you think that I
    never owned a K10???

    Sorry, you'll have to translate - I skipped the Bollox classes in
    school.......


    Since you have emerged from the depths, and are even now peering bleary-eyed
    at the river bank, whilst rapidly opening and closing your mouth like a
    surprised Carp, it would appear that my technique is actually quite sound ;)
