Discover the many sides to Samsung NX cameras, as our David Baileys take it out of the box and...
To show that the Samsung NX300 really is the camera that can shoot fast, we gave one to our David Bailey photographers, who then took it out for a day of rigorous testing - we called it the NX300 Speed Challenge. Take a look at the results and discover what they had to say about the new NX300 Smart Camera.
David Bailey, Post Grad
Approach: I decided to use the wide-angle lens, as I feel it captures a whole scene and gives you a greater understanding of the elements, like speed.
Features: The Continuous Shooting feature that lets you capture eight shots at once is amazing, it is the only way to go. It gives you variety and ensures that you get a perfect shot.
David Bailey, Teacher
Approach: I teamed up with another Bailey at the Speed Challenge. We did this because we wanted to use a trolley and capture the sprinters as they passed us. This proved to be a great creative choice and a really good laugh.
Features: We used the Auto Tracking feature, which was mentioned as just one of the many NX300 features. It actually proved to be an amazing feature. With just a press of the button, it keeps an object in focus, no matter how fast it moved - really amazing stuff!
David Bailey, PR
Approach: I have a passion for finer details. For this reason I decided to use a 50-100 zoom lens. I had this idea of capturing the expectation of speed, like muscle sinews tensing up just before the explosion, and also what I call the 'game face'.
Features: The Super Speed Shutter and the Touch Focus features were crucial to the way I captured the race. I didn’t always put my subjects in the centre of the screen, but I still wanted them in focus. So, together they proved to be really handy.
