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.
Pros: AMOLED screen, improved AF, i-Fn concept, built-in EVF
Cons: Little change over NX10, occasional autofocus wavering, EVF could be improved (resolution and refresh rate to counter lag)
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.
Summary: Built like a miniature DSLR, the Samsung NX11 compact system camera (CSC) feels and handles like a ‘proper’ camera, and as such it will appeal to enthusiast photographers and those not quite ready to make the jump from a compact to a DSLR.
The image quality is good, with the camera capable of resolving a lot of detail, although when shooting JPEG files the noise reduction can be a little strong as the sensitivity settings increase.
Summary: The market of digital cameras is already flooded with various good and bad designs doing the rounds and yet more number of cameras get launched every month. However it is the fierce competition in the market that has actually kept the price of cameras low. Recently, Samsung came out with its latest camera christened as NX11. Like the other cameras, even this new baby from Samsung boasts of rugged features and looks good.
Samsung NX11 review: A small camera with a digital SLR-sized sensor and functions
Good Gear Guide.au
23 October 2011
Summary: The NX11 is small and capable of producing very good images thanks to its relatively big sensor. With a built-in EVF and flash, it's one of the better value interchangeable lens camera on the Australian market.
Pros: Compact size, Very good image quality, Relatively good value
Cons: High ISO performance not great, Focus a little hit and miss, EVF could be better
Excerpt: The only issue with the Samsung NX11's NX mount is that it's still fairly new and is only currently supported by five NX-series lenses, which may restrict you if you plan to expand the system in the short term, The 18-55mm lens does offer the same 27-82.5mm 35mm focal length to the D3100 and K-r, though. The ISO range spans from 100-3200 with no room for expansion and because it's a CSC the autofocus system it uses is the Contrast-Detect type.
Excerpt: The 14.6-megapixel NX11 resembles a shrunken digital SLR with a depth roughly half that of an entry-level model. This is down to the fact that, as with competitors like the Olympus Pen, Panasonic GF or Sony NEX series, the NX11 omits the standard mirror mechanism.
Pros: Compact proportions; clear AMOLED screen; eye sensor for switching between screen and EVF; iFunction control via lens; fair value
Cons: Narrow handgrip; not Full HD video; mono sound; mic picks up operational noise
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).
