The weather spoiled today's solar eclipse for many would-be watchers in the UK but it was visible in some parts of the country.

Aloha! We go shooting with Samsung's new NX500 [UPDATED]Source/Copyright: Articles: Digital Photography Review (dpreview.com) at Mar 17 2015 - 08:22 AM (CET)
UPDATED: We just added several images to this gallery, converted from raw. The Samsung NX500 is essentially a scaled down version of Samsung's flagship NX1. It uses the same 28MP BSI-CMOS sensor, advanced hybrid AF system, and a version of the same DRIMe V processor. The main differences are the form factor (resembling a rangefinder rather than an SLR), burst mode (9 vs 15 fps), and viewfinder (none vs electronic).
