Online Demo of the Samsung i-Function Lens System

One of the big features touted by Samsung in the unveiling of the new Samsung NX100 was the i-Function lens system, which allows people to adjust camera settings traditionally handled only by the camera body. By placing an “i-Function” button on the lens, the focus ring suddenly has a dual purpose, becoming the “dial” that is traditionally used to change things like aperture and shutter speed.

To provide a better understanding of how the system works, Samsung has created an online flash simulator demonstrating the system.

What do you think of the usability of this system?

    At first I was skeptical, but this seems to be a pretty good idea. This is a radical change in lens feature access through and will not be compatible with other systems.

    very good idea for evil and m4/3 systems, is that a collapsable lense like the PEN?
