Bildschirmfoto 2015-11-06 um 07.27.22

The biggest Norwegian photo camera store Japanphoto just launched a sell out of Samsung products. They say: “now its the end with Samsung, we dump pricing”.

Thanks Lars for finding and sharing this!

    They are not confirming anything on Samsungs behalf. They are only stopping the sales in their own stores.

    “Japan Photo ends our effort on selling Samsung [cameras]”
    “When the stock is down to zero, we won’t order more [cameras from Samsung]”

    It might be an indication on something bigger though. I don’t know, but i hope Samsung will stay in the camera game at least for some camera genres like the NX series.

      It’s an indication of Samsung gear not being able to sell itself. And these bad news don’t help it.
      One doesn’t dump prices 25% if they simply want to sell and not order again. One dumps price when there’s an understanding that it’s over.

    I’m surprised that a store called JAPAN PHOTO sells Samsung at all. Very stupid conclusion in the title :)

    • Espen Braathen

      LOL. They are a big chain of camera stores in Norway. Don’t get confused by the name.

  • Marco –

    I don’t know if samsung will stay or not in the nx system, but it’s incredibly bad that, after one year from presentation, a flagship camera dropped almost 50% in price. Even if samsung stays in the business, who’s going to buy its cameras at launch anymore????

    I paid 1.224€ for the camera back in February, which seemed like a great deal, but now the price is 2/3 of that, in just 9 months. Ridicolous.

      Who’s going to by cameras at launch? Suckers like you, lol. or suckers like you were, at least. And there’s no shortage of suckers.

      • Marco –

        Was not at launch. Launch was in november. And I paid 1224€ when everywhere else the cam was at 1499€ :-D

        And for the last 9 month, here in europe, the camera was at most seen at about 1100€ (till a couple of months ago, actually, was 1.299€). So not a bad deal.

        But now, all of a sudden, the camera dropped to 890€. Not a market fault, but a samsung’s one.

  • Ed

    Or it could just mean that Samsung NX won’t be selling in Norway anymore. I can’t imagine this is a big deal at all

  • Iki

    924$ for the nx1.

  • BrianSmiths

    Samsung was a poor camera maker anyway. Who needs it NX1? I don’t. I doubt it will sell well even for $240. Let the loser burn.
