    Hi all

    Have decided that my next Infrared Camera will be a Samsung NX

    Have a quote of the NX100 - but am also looking at the NX5, NX10, NX11, and the NX200

    Price is a BIG factor and would love a viewfinder if that is possible

    Think the NX200 may be out of my price range but would LOVE to hear any comments with respect to any or all these NX series cameras.

    Please feel free to comment no matter what and their suitability for IR conversion

    Cheers for Years
    Colin

    Kamicota, I have a NX200 for sale on Amazon at a reasonable price. It is barely used. I liked it a lot but it got upstaged for me by the XP1 and the NEX7. Can't keep all the cameras.

    Thanks Country Parson

    Appreciate the offer - although would have to mail it from Canada to Kolarivision to have it converted and that would be an extra $250 or so plus the two way postage around another $70 so probably would be way out of my price range

    Just for information - the offer I had for the NX100 converted IR was US$550 + one way shipping so you can see what we are up against.

    Although the price would be welcomed for NX200

    Cheers for years

    Hi again

    Ilija of KolariVision just did his FIRST NX100 Conversion - found it had 2 IR Block Filters - removes both obtaining faster shutter speeds
