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. On the other end of the spectrum there are the point and shoots.
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. Removing the electronic viewfinder has lowered the height of the camera in comparison to its older brother but it must be said that the width and depth remains much the same.
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. The Samsung NX100 is typically a camera with which you want to get going immediately, it makes you curious. The different, innovative, new control aspects of the camera have good results.
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. Problem is that they had issues getting it down to that smaller body and had to make compromises with construction, no internal flash unit, no optical image stabilization of any kind, and they haven’t...
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 form factor and weight can be shrunk, along with partnered lenses.
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. The three ‘next nearest’ competitors come in the form of Panasonic’s forthcoming GF2, Olympus’s E-P2 and Sony’s NEX-5 – all of which will cost at least £100 more than the Samsung.
Pros: Affordable, stylish, good layout and UI, iFn lenses
Cons: No in-built flash, no viewfinder, poor battery life
