Megapixel (Click here) had a small talk with Sungrok Kim – Samsung’s regional product manager for Digital Imaging (Middle East & North Africa). There are a couple of interesting notes:
1) “We have the technology to develop a medium format cameras but we are not going to do that because this is not our market.“..:”What you see in the image was developed for internal purposes in order to look into future technologies.”. My question to our readers, would you develop a medium format camera just for fun? :)
2) And again read that: “we developed a 1000mm lens for astronomical use – but again just for internal purposes.”. Looks like Samsung employees are big fans of astronomy ;)
3) “We are also working on an adaptor for Pentax lenses although it currently does not support autofocus.“
4) “Samsung is currently developing a new generation of APS-C CMOS sensors with higher resolution for its future line of compact system cameras. We defiantly have plans to expend both the exiting lines and create new ones.”
