Samsung GX-20 Digital Camera Review

Buy-n-Shoot.com
29 April 2009
  • Conclusion: Overall, the Samsung GX-20 is well-priced and well-put-together. It is an attractive, solid unit, both in terms of its build as well as its performance, and it is unlikely to disappoint. Highly recommended. * Tested with the Samsung 18-55mm lens

Samsung GX-20 Review

What Digital Camera
1 July 2008
  • Summary: The GX-20 can be viewed as the fruit of a successful manufacturing partnership. Samsung’s electronics expertise has been coupled with Pentax’s long-standing photographic heritage to produce a camera that manages to meet a high specification while not breaking the bank.
  • Pros: Sleek design, resolution, noise control, intelligent button layout
  • Cons: Slightly cramped viewfinder, underexposure, LCD screen

  • Conclusion: It's hard to get excited by the GX-20 for two reasons. First, the definitio is average despite those 14 million pixels. Second, the Pentax K20D is better and much the same price

Live View needs some Live Aid

Good Gear Guide.au
12 March 2009
  • Summary: This camera feels and sounds like a beast. And it is a beast. It'll produce very good images at a 14.6Mp size, with practically no noise up to ISO 800. However, its Live View feature is worthless.
  • Pros: Huge picture size, no noticeable noise up to ISO 800, solidly constructed, optical image stabilisation
  • Cons: Live View is implemented poorly, no dedicated buttons for ISO or shooting mode, shutter button could be better, loud shutter, slightly soft image quality

  • Summary: I was surprised by the pictures taken with the GX20 as most of them came out underexposed meaning I had to compensate.
  • Pros: Compatible with Pentax lenses, Good noise control, Good portrait results, Nice build quality, Camera based image stabiliser, Dust alert feature
  • Cons: Colour rendition is off, Underexposing on 75% of shots, Two extra options on the dial are taking the fun away

  • Summary: The tweaks and reworked menus can’t hide the fact that the GX20 is basically the same as the Pentax K20D. But the K20D benefi ts from the Pentax brand cachet and has a couple of useful features missing here, which leaves the GX20 in a kind of no-man’s-land.

  • Summary: Samsung GX20 har genomgående mycket hög kvalitetskänsla och ergonomiska reglage. Inställningsmöjligheterna är omfattande men menyerna ändå tydliga och överskådliga. En mycket bra kamera med många möjligheter. Mycket lik Pentax K20D på de flesta punkter, men med klart bättre menysystem.
