While researching mirrorless digital cameras, I was drawn into the Samsung NX1's orbit by the camera's fresh digital interface; intuitive operational modes; lens adaption possibilities; interval recording and impressive filmic motion imaging. Importantly, many photographer's reviews said the NX1 was a joy to shoot with. This blog will document my intention to become a better 'still' photographer; but the NX1's primary function for me will be digital-film imaging. Feel free to comment.

Testing a Tokina 28-70mm
Nikon-mount RMC Tokina 28-70mm f4 lens (SN 8444718) adapted to the NX1. Took it out for a few photographs today. The adjustment ring closest to the camera (not the aperture ring), sets the focal length (28mm-70mm). The wider ring toward the from of the lens is for focusing.
Note: I noticed when taking long distance photographs, I had to back-off infinity to achieve focus. This is a good sharp lens for it's age.
