Samsung NX10 Review

About.com
26 April 2013
  • Summary: When comparing digital cameras, it's easy to end up focusing on all of the numbers in the list of specifications, inadvertently forgetting the key ingredient that makes a good digital camera: Great image quality. During my review of the Samsung NX10 camera, forgetting about image quality was impossible, because of the NX10's excellent results in this area.
  • Pros: Very good image quality, Quick start up and quick auto focus, AMOLED screen is very bright and sharp, Battery life is very good, Very nice mix of easy to use automatic features and manual control features
  • Cons: Menu structure could be a little easier to use, Will find occasional problems with noise in photos, Not enough features for most experienced photographers

  • Conclusion: The Samsung NX10 is one of the most impressive compact system cameras. It may lack the wow-factor of Sony's NEX or Olympus' PEN ranges, but it's actually more comfortable than both to hold. It's also easy to use, and offers great build quality. It loses out on the easy manual adjustments found on the newer Samsung NX11 – offered via a new lens – but aside from that it's near identical to its siblings. With some great offers available, it's well worth a look.
  • Pros: The Samsung NX10 is a compact APS-C camera, offering mini-DSLR styling and a host of different changeable lenses. It looks and feels great, with an ergonomic design and decent build quality. The back is dominated by a 3-inch AMOLED screen, which offers vibrant colours and images that can be seen irrespective of the weather. There's also an electronic viewfinder, making it easy to frame the perfect photograph. The NX10 gets the same 14.6-megapixel sensor as the newer S...
  • Cons: The traditional mini-DSLR styling won't appeal to all consumers, and the NX10 can look a little old fashioned. It also lacks the new i-Function lens found on the Samsung NX11, but aside from that we have no real complaints.

  • Summary: The NX10 proves it's possible to offer an APS-C sensor and interchangeable lenses without the mirror, prism, and general bulk of a DSLR design. It's a small, likeable camera that is readily capable of matching the image quality of its peers, but a few minor failings prevent it from standing out in a sector full of highly capable cameras.
  • Pros: Smallest interchangeable lens camera with an APS-C sensor, Good image quality, Very reliable metering and white balance in most shooting situations, Excellent build quality, Generally well-thought-through interface and ergonomics, High specification for the price, Fast (DSLR speed) autofocus and good range of AF point selection methods, Superb LED rear screen offers high contrast, brightness and viewing angle, EVF useful in bright light and free from the 'tearing effe...
  • Cons: Auto ISO will all too readily result in shaky photos, Steep tone curve gives harsh transition to blown-out, white areas (as seen in Panasonic G series), Noise reduction in JPEGS can be destructive (especially in Smart Range mode), Several functions, including playback, unavailable for several seconds when shooting RAW, EVF seems dull in comparison to excellent rear screen, Lack of optional live view magnification makes manual focus of non-NX lenses impractical, Contin...

  • Conclusion: The camera is completely made up of plastic which feels well put together and of high quality though the plastic cover the pop up flash, the memory card and the connections door felt flimsy. In fact the pop up flash pop up mechanism stop functioning after using it for a few weeks.

  • Summary: While there are enough drawbacks to keep the Samsung NX10 from being a no-brainer choice among interchangeable-lens cameras, it's still a well-designed model that's fun to shoot with and capable of producing very nice photos.
  • Cons: Default image settings could be better; sensor cleaning on resume from standby; middling EVF; no override for EVF eye sensor; annoying raw software.

  • Summary: Whether performance will outsmart the entry-level DSLR market (and, based on its design the NX10 appeals very much as a DSLR-replacement camera) is another matter altogether, one that only the consumers can answer.

  • Conclusion: Samsung's first Micro-Four-Thirds competitor holds its own when it comes to speed and performance, but a proprietary lens system and limited compatible accessories detract from the overall package.
  • Pros: Compact build with interchangeable lenses. D-SLR-like image quality and focusing speed. Negligible shutter lag. OLED screen offers extraordinary contrast and very little motion blur. Intuitive and attractive user interface. 720p30 HD video capture.
  • Cons: Included lens produces soft images. Noise at ISO 1600 and higher. No optical viewfinder. Limited lens and accessory selection. No microphone input.

  • Conclusion: Samsung NX10 review With the NX10, Samsung has something new to offer, or actually several things. Not only is it the first camera that the brand has developed all by itself, it is also one of the first cameras on the market with changeable lenses, an APS-C sensor, and without a mirror. The Samsung NX10 is not only starting the attack on the Micro Four Thirds System, but also on the traditional SLR camera.

Samsung NX10 Mini-DSLR Compact Camera

  • Summary: Movies are where the new generation of mirror-less, large sensor cameras differentiate themselves. While my D90 takes some great video, it is also very frustrating due to a lack of auto focus. Auto focus is an essential feature, especially if you have small children who move fast and don't stay in one place very long.
  • Pros: APS-C large sized sensor, Good auto focus and manual focus, Good noise reduction, Great resolution from the JPEG engine, Good OIS, Auto exposure bracketing option available, Excellent Build quality, Longer video recording time than most
  • Cons: Larger than other mirror-less camera systems, Face detection not the greatest, White Balance unreliable, Control wheel sometimes skips and is a bit laggy, Clips to white fairly quickly, detail not recoverable in RAW, Uses a Samsung proprietary NX lens mount
