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: 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.
Conclusion: Being the first step in the mirror less APS-C technology, there are obviously some kinks that need to be ironed in future releases but rarely is a new technology perfect for its inception. Samsung’s NX10 is made for the photographer that wants DSLR image quality to take wherever they go and they’ve deliver this at a more than reasonable price. Hopefully third-party lens manufactures jump onboard the NX lens mount to give it the support the technology deserves.
Summary: As far as Micro System Cameras go, an NX10 strongpoint is undoubtedly its price. Not because it’s ‘cheap’, but what it offers (for sub-£500 in many stores) is a savvy and accessible price-point that ought to see its deserved success. 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.
Pros: AMOLED screen, built-in EVF
Cons: AF a bit sluggish, No Mac support for Samsung-own Raw converter software
Summary: It is always a brave decision to launch a new camera system, but I think that the NX10 and NX system have a bright future. The adoption of an APS-C-sized sensor will appeal to those demanding the quality of a DSLR camera in a compact design.
The three lenses available for the NX10 at its launch should cover most entry-level photographers' needs, but with Samsung hoping to launch five new lenses this year, the system may also appeal to more experienced photographers used...
The Samsung NX10 is the perfect option for users who want SLR-like performance in a compact size

Summary: The Samsung NX10 can do the job of a digital SLR, but it's smaller and a little more affordable. It's an interchangeable lens camera that doesn't skimp on features -- you get a built-in flash and an EVF -- and it can take very clear and vibrant photos. We think it's perfect for users who want SLR-like functionality from a camera that's not much bigger than a compact camera.
Pros: Small size, APS-C sensor, built-in EVF and flash, easy-to use menu system, snaps clear and vibrant images
Cons: AMOLED screen doesn't tilt or rotate, didn't always find the correct focus point in close-ups
Conclusion: Samsung have obviously focused on many of the details with the NX10 and it is a slightly surprising result, especially as you can get this camera for less than £500. The menu system is accomplished, with very few layers to get through to find what you need. It doesn’t quite draw you into experimenting like some Micro Four Thirds models do, so some might say that it isn't quite as fun. There are a few compromises for sure. Video is one of them.
Pros: Menu system, comes with viewfinder and flash built-in, compact, image quality, value for money
Cons: RAW shooting is a little slow and clunky, the video offering isn't great
Summary: After 25 years of reviewing photographic products, I am as cynical as anyone of the camera makers' innovations. But I think they are really onto something big with system cameras like this Samsung and the Micro Four Thirds system. The cameras offer high quality photography, responsive handling, interchangeable lenses and without the bulk of a traditional DSLR.
Pros: Size, Feel, Picture quality, Rich colours, Exposure system accuracy and consistency
Cons: ISO3200 performance not great, Autofocus could be inconsistent in multi-point operation
Conclusion: Ik moet eerlijk bekennen dat ik sceptisch tegenover de Samsung NX10 stond toen de camera werd aangekondigd. Al die twijfel is tijdens de test als sneeuw voor de zon verdwenen. De Samsung NX10 is een verrassend goede camera. Die paar minpuntjes konden mijn plezier bij het fotograferen niet bederven. Voor mij is de Samsung NX10 een opvallende verrassing, en krijgt zeker mijn aanbeveling!
