Pros: Sensor with respect to a compact size, manual controls, RAW Support, Picture Quality, HDMI, Reflex; Creative Effects; cleaning system of the sensor; functions easily accessible.
Cons: Sensor size compared to an SLR, GPS only optional; few lenses available, No flash, viewfinder only optional; Movies HD video and not only Full HD.
Excerpt: Everyone has heard about the DSLR. The first thing that comes to most peoples mind is amazing picture quality and a seemingly endless amount of options and adjustments, but with the drawbacks of being a heavy, bulky brick that can have a very steep learning curve and an even steeper price.
Pros: Stylish, ergonomic design. Friendly interface and i-Function button on kit lens mean you don’t need to read the manual. Fun built-in filters.
Cons: Kit lens is not particularly sharp. Slow shot-to-shot transition. Serious, wobbly rolling-shutter when panning quickly in HD mode. Image noise at higher ISOs. Lack of a rubberized handgrip means it’s easy to drop.
Excerpt: We found a lot to like about Samsung's previous mirrorless camera, the NX10. But, now Samsung is taking things in a different direction, ditching the SLR form factor and introducing a true interchangeable lens compact in the NX100.
Conclusion: The design of the NX100 is no doubt the main area in which changes have been made to give users an obvious differentiation from the NX10 positioning the NX100 more toward the advanced compact market than the DSLR one.
Conclusion: Samsung NX100 system camera review Our first acquaintance with the Samsung NX100 during a press event was already pleasant and we were immediately convinced. We were presented a new system camera with some distinguishing features in an already heavily competitive market.
Conclusion: If I thought at the conclusion of my Samsung NX10 review that it was a hit and a miss, and was not a complete package just yet, how could I like the NX100 more? There wouldn’t be any logic in that. I feel the Samsung NX100 is like the Samsung NX10 but in a smaller body.
Excerpt: I know it’s not that important, but I feel this category of camera needs a name. How about MILC? Mirrorless Interchangeable Lens Camera. Along with models from Olympus, Panasonic and Sony these radical MILCs have attracted many followers, willing to forgo a turret viewfinder so that the camera’s...
Summary: The NX100’s price is one of its key winning points. For around just £380 – and consider that’s less than some high-end creative compact cameras – there’s a whole lot here for the money and plenty of prospect for expansion too.
Pros: Affordable, stylish, good layout and UI, iFn lenses
Cons: No in-built flash, no viewfinder, poor battery life
