Samsung’s NX1100 Gets Priced; Bundled With Adobe Lightroom 4

937485

Samsung announced their NX1100 around one month ago, and now the company is announcing the price point. As a quick refresher, the camera sports a 20.3MP APS-C sized sensor, Wi-Fi sharing, 3.0″ 921k-Dot TFT-LCD Monitor, Full HD 1080p Video Recording at 30fps, Built-In Wireless Connectivity, 8fps RAW and JPEG Continuous Shooting, ISO 100-12800, Smart Auto, Scene, and Magic Modes. It comes kitted with the Samsung 20-50mm f/3.5-5.6 ED II Lens and an External Flash. Beyond that, you’ll also get Adobe Lightrom 4 bundled–which is a $120 value by itself and essentially knocks the price down even further if you really think about.

And all this for $599.99. When B&H Photo originally offered the pre-order, it was for $699 as we first reported. If there were pre-orders, we’re sure those customers will be getting back $100.

Lightroom 4.2 is Out Now with Preliminary Support for the Nikon D600

I did a face palm when I realized I could not use the Nikon D600 in Lightroom. Thankfully, I’ve been shooting in RAW + JPEG so far. This has been slightly remedied with the release of Lightroom 4.2. I know from my interactions with a few of our readers that people are buying the D600; so you might want to jump on the update. There are also a fair amount of bugs corrected in addition to new camera support, new lens profiles and added camera tether support.

Review: CameraBag 2 Image Editing Software

Though there is still quite a bit of hype going around about Adobe Lightroom 4, it’s nice to know that there are other options available tailored to the styles of different editors. We previously went hands on with Nevercenter’s CameraBag 2 while it was in beta and have been testing the now fully released version of the software for quite a while and over many different shooting sessions.

In a nutshell, the software is perhaps what every enthusiast photographer that doesn’t want to spend a ton of time in the editing stage may want to get their hands on.
