The NX1 still sells for $2,460 on Amazon
We know Samsung is capable of doing great APS-C sensor (just look at the NX1 camera). And many still wish Samsung will come back doing APS-C or FF sensors for other manufacturers. There is yet no evidence supporting that’s really going to happen. But there is a big discussion within the Korean Forum Seeko.kr that attracted my curiosity. According to a user report Samsung is doing this:
- Samsung Electronics has just built a full-frame sensor in meaningful quantity. Those are not just an engineering samples.
- They will start mass production next year and plan to deliver them to Japan. But they did not mention a particular company. They plans to supply it to multiple customers.
O f course this is just forum talk for now and has near zero credibility. But I keep fingers crossed this will be true. it would be about time to get an alternative to Sony’s domination!
