Hi,The Samsung does 420MP/Sec.
The Samsung is also saving 12-bit files during continuous shooting vs. the full 14-bits in single shot mode.
You keep telling us that DR (and by extension 12bits vs 14bits) isn't important except to a small number of people so therefore this difference that you've highlighted is also relatively unimportant. Or do you wish to become one of your own DRones and insist that the extra bit-depth and thus DR is all of a sudden important?
IMHO, when I buy a camera that have 14-bits RAW, I expect to have 14-bits RAW also when shooting at 15fps, so I'll be very mad if I buy this camera and found this to be true especially the Samsung specification didn't even specified that it's 12-bits RAW when shooting at 15fps...
So now the question is: Does the Samsung NX1 really shoot 15fps only at 12-bits RAW?? If yes and they didn't mentioned it, I think Samsung going to be in big problem when buyer find out because shooting at 15fps was the "WOW" feature and one of the selling point that Samsung keep mention it!
Have a nice day.
I'm curious, though. When you shoot at high FPS, are you also at higher ISO, like 800, 1600, 3200? You aren't going to get the same tonal range at those ISOs, meaning the use of 14 bits isn't much of a benefit, if any at all. Not just on the DR front, but on the tonal range front...you don't have the tones or the color fidelity at high ISO to justify 14-bit data anyway. The use of 12-bit files is a bummer for lower ISO settings, but if your most likely to be shooting at higher ISO anyway, it really isn't that big of a deal. It's more efficient...smaller data files, meaning you can fit more on a memory card. At 15fps, that could be a real bonus.
