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
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 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: 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...

Excerpt: The Samsung NX10 is an interchangeable lens digital camera that’s going to garner a lot of attention. It has a bigger sensor than the interchangeable lens cameras from Olympus and Panasonic, and it’s much better value for money. It also feels like a mini digital SLR rather 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
Excerpt: The Samsung NX10 is a serious entry into the hybrid sector for the Korean company, a company that competes it pretty much every sector of the consumer electronics market. It's no surprise then to find that Samsung haven't taken a half-hearted approach: the NX10 is a serious device, despite the company being a relative newbie when it comes to cameras.
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: An affordable, interchangeable-lens system camera that provides DSLR features in a compact and portable body.Samsung expanded the interchangeable-lens compact (ILC) camera category with the announcement of its mirrorless NX10 system in early January. Styled like a traditional DSLR camera, but significantly slimmer (thanks to a shorter flange-back resulting from the elimination of the mirror box), the NX10 competes head-to-head with the Micro Four Thirds models introduced...
