The surface finish of the NX5
And now for a silly thing the surface texture of the camera. The Z1 has a smooth black surface that that you can wipe clean with your finger. The NX5 has a rough textured surface like fine sandpaper and every finger-print shows up. If you rub your finger along any of its surfaces it makes a shusshing noise, and if you try and clean it with a damp kitchen towel say it leaves tiny flecks of the paper caught by the surface. Its another in the list headed, Whos bright idea was that, then?

To clean the camera’s casing use any commercially available microfiber cloth (especially made from polyester or polyamide).

Polyester microfiber is designed for cleaning clean on a microscopic scale. It absorbs fat and grease without being abrasive or leaving a residue and its electrostatic properties gives it a high dust-attracting power.

If you've got dry fingers, a textured surface will be a problem. If you've got oily fingers, a smooth surface will be a problem. If you're like me, and have both at different times, then there's just no winning. :) Personally, I like the textured surface better. Just looks tougher.

I was surprised at the finish. Sony's teaser video showed close ups of a textured surface. It's not a big deal to me, but I do prefer the textured surface to which I've been accustom.
