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
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.
Summary: The ergonomic differences between the NX100 and the NX10 are vast, and as such the NX100 is not a replacement but a more compact addition to the NX system. As far as style is concerned, the NX100 is a unique and elegant camera. However, the it lacks a good grip and its stylish curves hinder just how compact the camera could have been.
While the included 20-50mm i-Function lens excited me at first, the NX100’s lack of a built-in viewfinder restricts its benefit.
Conclusion: We really like many things about the NX100, especially the i-Function lens and AMOLED screen. The lack of stabilisation and flash are two things that stand out for us as concerns, and may put some people off buying this camera. The image quality isn’t bad, but there are some minor issues that would not be found on a DSLR with a similar APS-C chip.

Summary: The Samsung NX100 digital camera takes clear and vibrant images, but it lacks a built-in EVF and a built-in flash. These are features which we miss dearly, especially considering the NX100 is more expensive than the NX10, which includes both of these features. Nevertheless, it's a still a great camera that's fun to use.
Pros: Very good image quality, great menu system, easy to use, AMOLED screen
Cons: No built-in EVF, no built-in flash, i-Function feature is unintuitive
Summary: Clearly, Samsung thought the NX10 DSLR wasn’t small enough, and decided that a compact-DSLR hybrid would be even smaller and lighter. And it is. There’s no doubt you can walk around with it dangling around your neck with little fear of strain. The thing is, it’s not as radical as the Sony NEX and it has a slightly plastic feel.
Pros: Incredibly light, More power than a compact, Full manual control, 720p movies, Low power, high visibility LCD screen, AWB in artificial light
Cons: Plastic build quality, Over saturated images, Not top quality images, i-Function lens is fiddly, No built in flash
