Summary: The Samsung NX11 is an excellent little camera. We'd still be tempted to take a proper DSLR like the Canon EOS 600D when it comes to image quality, but the NX11 has enough in its armoury – such as the neat styling, compact dimensions and impressive quality – that's it's still bound to tempt many buyers. In comparison to other compact system cameras, it's definitely an appealing choice, proving easy to use, desirable and a great all-rounder.
Excerpt: We review the Samsung NX11, third in the Korean firm's Compact System Camera (CSC) range SAMSUNG’S NX11 is the third in the Korean firm's Compact System Camera (CSC) range. It represents a mild update of the NX10, launched early last year, with slightly modified handling, a small number of additional features and compatibility with Samsung’s new i-Function lenses.
Summary: There's little new to get excited about when comparing the NX11 to the previous NX10, but that's beside the point when considering the NX11 on its own merit. An upgrade model this isn't, but the NX11 does successfully bring out-of-the-box i-Fn lens compatibility. That helps in providing a ‘calling card' for the NX series; that unique principle that should help the NX stand out in an ever more crowded Compact System Camera market.
Excerpt: At first glance, the Samsung NX11 could be mistaken for the NX10 . In fact, the cameras are very similar in ergonomics, controls and overall specifications. I had a chance to spend a few minutes with preproduction NX11 at CES. Read on for my initial impressions of the camera.
Excerpt: The popular NX10 has been updated to include the ‘i-Function’ controllability of the NX100, adding extra convenience to what is already a very appealing CSC package. Like Sony, Samsung is emphasising the benefits of having a bigger sensor in comparison to the Micro Four Thirds cameras from Olympus and Panasonic.” The NX10 was a very pretty looking camera and the NX11 inherits these good looks as Samsung has, very wisely, elected not to change anything much externally,...
Excerpt: Samsung ’s NX11 is a perfect choice for those who have always wanted a DSLR but who have been put off by the sheer bulk of a ‘proper’ camera . Thanks to its mirrorless body, the NX11 is smaller and lighter than any DSLR although. The traditional SLR body shape, with its rubberised right-hand grip is much more comfortable to hold than a compact camera .
Excerpt: The NX11 is very similar to the older NX10, which is still being sold alongside the newer model. First impressions of the NX11 are very positive, especially considering the aggressive pricing which is cheaper than the NX10 was on launch. Samsung have opted to make the NX11 a mass-market device with an all-plastic body and new 18-55mm kit lens with a plastic mount, rather than taking on the more premium offerings from Olympus and Panasonic (the plastic E-PL2 aside).
