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.
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. I’ve been eyeing a lot of dSLR but haven’t had the budget that time. Now, after saving up and controlling my urges of shopping paycheck after paycheck, I finally fulfilled my dream. I bought the new Samsung NX10.
Excerpt: Among other competing models in the same price range : GF-1 , Olympus EPL-1 and NEX5 , I settled for the NX10 mainly for the fact that it has all the good parts of those 3 cameras , SLR style controls and interface and design, Fast AF speed, Large Sensor (APS-C Cmos) and to add that the NX10 also had a good EVF and AMOLED screen. Picture quality is also marvelous.
Excerpt: An excellent little camera. Image quality is on par with the offerings from Nikon or Canon. High ISO noise is more than acceptable. Control layout is logical and well thought out. Menu structure is logical. The 30mm pancake lens is excellent. The 18-55mm lens and 50-200mm lenses are just as good as what the competition offers with their kits. It's small, lightweight, and makes a perfect travel camera. Samsung did nice job designing this camera.
Excerpt: To the lenses: very useful 30mm lens, very good OIS of the 50-200mm - problems with sunrise (sunset) - orange with red circle , very "average" set zoom. Problems: I cannot accept the very long times of the shutter adjusted by automatic control. The bad firmware injured too many shots particularly in worse light conditions. I will sell this camera.
Summary: The ease of changing from live view to viewfinder is great. esp.since you can film videos through the viewfinder live histogram shows all the effects you can make by a slight movement or setting electronic viewfinder is good and bright and sharp enough to check focus
Pros: Easy select of view modes, Good Image Stabilization, Good in Low Light, Great Zoom, Live histogram rocks, Pause for movies, Preview of filter setting, Shoot movies through view, Short Lag Time
