Samsung NX20 Review

10 April 2013
  • Conclusion: Overall, the Samsung NX20 is an excellent camera. Still quality is superb and movies are very good. It’s a good choice for both aim-and-forgetters and those who tweak every image to the nth degrees. However, avoid the high-speed burst mode or you may have to do a reboot. So forget the speeding bullets, stick to more leisurely action and you’ll be in fine shape.
  • Pros: Top notch stills and quality videos, Excellent iFunction lens with OIS, Superior vari-angle screen
  • Cons: Forget high-speed burst mode, Occasional focusing issues, Noisy at high ISOs

Samsung NX20 Review: Swimming With Sharks

Digital Camera Review
16 March 2013
  • Excerpt: Since the beginning of the digital imaging revolution, a new generation of photographers has come of age using point and shoot cameras. Amateur shutterbugs have grown progressively more sophisticated over those twenty odd years, but they still want easy to use cameras that produce excellent images with very little effort on the part of the shooter.

  • Excerpt: Meet the Samsung NX20. It has the look and feel and (almost the) speed of a dSLR, but it's part of an affordable line of high tech NX System cameras, which currently includes nine lens options. Announced along with its siblings, the NX210 and NX1000, the NX20 boats a huge 20.3 megapixel CMOS sensor, full 1080p HD movies, a 3.0-inch AMOLED swivel display, a 1/8000s Fast Shutter, and a host of Samsung SMART features to make taking professional photos easier than ever...

Camera Review: Samsung NX20

PDN Gear Guide
8 November 2012
  • Conclusion: Camera manufacturers have tried to add decent wireless connectivity to digital cameras for the last decade with little success. While the built-in Wi-Fi in the Samsung NX20 doesn’t come close to being as seamless to use as your iPhone, it’s a step in the right direction.
  • Pros: Finally a decent wireless setup in a digital camera
  • Cons: Your iPhone still kicks its butt

  • Excerpt: Easy to use and plenty of possibilities Until recently, photography and dslr cameras didn't remind me of Samsung. Since I had a NX20 in my hands, this has changed. The relatively compact SLR is really powerful, with its 20.3 effective megapixels sensor and a shutter speed of 1/8000 to 30 seconds. The device has an easy fit in the hand, and offers a pleasant control of well-distributed switches and buttons.
  • Pros: Quite compact but reasonably good grip, Easy operation, Wifi possibilities, Plenty of options
  • Cons: Standard plastic lens is somehow unnatural, Hard hood around the viewfinder

Samsung NX20

PC Magazine
14 July 2012
  • Conclusion: The NX20 is Samsung's top-end mirrorless camera, but it doesn't perform as well as its less-expensive sibling, the NX1000—or other models in its price range.
  • Pros: Excellent Wi-Fi implementation. Sharp, articulating rear display. Good control layout.
  • Cons: Expensive. So-so LCD EVF. Kit lens soft at 18mm. Slow to start and shoot.

A new contender for the mirrorless camera crown?

13 July 2012
  • Summary: When I first took the NX20 out of its box, I was prepared to dislike it — the look and feel just don't measure up to some of its classier competition. But I was wrong. I really like the NX20: it's smartly designed, offers good manual control once you figure out how to use it, is fast enough to not cause problems, and most importantly takes excellent photos and video.
  • Pros: Excellent image and video quality, Useful interface and controls, Cool Wi-Fi features
  • Cons: Expensive, Unremarkable kit lens, Some performance quirks
