Excerpt: Finally decided to splurge and bought my very own dSLR. My Canon IXUS camera is still working perfectly but I envy most of my friends who posted pictures that are professional looking and I myself am a confessed model wannabe and a frustrated photographer.
Summary: I have worked with/on computers and electronics for over 20 years. I am a novice photographer. Although plastic, body is tight and sturdy. Nice compact size. Good heft to hold on to. Controls (dials and buttons) are easy to reach. Good egronomics. Battery life/time is good. Photo quality is sharp and accurate. Good quality kit lens. It is wide at the lowest setting and still very sharp at the longest setting. I have the 18-55mm and 20mm lenses.
Summary: This is the best camera you can find. It is comparable to other cameras on the market, but this not only cheaper but you gain more features. The only slight downside to the camera vs other Samsung Point and Shoot cameras, is that you have to take out the battery to charge it. You cannot simply plug it into your computer and charge up the battery. Minor draw back. Beyond that there are no other draw backs to this camera.
Summary: I really like how this camera feels and overall I'm satisfied with the picture quality. The amoled screen comes in handy in bright situations but the one gripe I have with this camera is that the bayonet mount on the kit lens is made of plastic and is quite flimsy. The after-market lens offerings have metal mounts and I expect they would be more robust than the kit lens.
Excerpt: I've had this NX10 for a few months now and I am very satisfied, and surprised by its capabilities. Before having it I was using standard DSLRs such as 550Ds and 40Ds. Initially the NX10 was a camera without much of a raison d'etre, costing as much as the average low-mid end DSLR, however, now it seems that this camera (and its NX100) counterpart cost as much as comapcts, but offer DSLR performance. This is just one of the advantages of the NX system.
Excerpt: Picture Quality: Terrific frankly, nice clean shots up to ISO800 suitable for your big enlargements, a little bit noisier at 1600 but still fine for 8x10s or more, 3200 maybe for emergencies only - there's a NR function you can switch on that kicks in at 3200, but if you want to get technical best thing apparantly is to shoot in RAW at 1600 and above and process to your own NR taste rather than relying on the jpeg output.
Summary: Having been reading up on most cameras since the release of the Nikon D90 on dpreview.com I finally thought the NX10/NX11 was my perfect camera. And having it for a week now I'm pretty pleased with it. I've been following all the Nikon models D90 / D3000 / D3100 and the Canon Rebel line as well as all the Micro Four-Thirds cameras and the Sony NEX-3/5. I've read reviews and comments and looked at all the sample images.
Summary: This is a great camera for those stepping up from point and shoot's. It comes with a set of lens that allows you to take great photos and videos. my only con would be the fact that video length is only 25 minutes. i've read on forums that the processor will overheat after 25 minutes and that is why it's capped. it's a shame since most point and shoots will record forever...
