Summary: The Samsung NX20 is a wonderful compact camera with interchangeable lenses with NX System and integrated WiFi technology for fast and easy sharing of content (Handy key rapid share, Smart Link). The camera is also equipped with a beautiful AMOLED display and a tiltable EVF SVGA for the execution of wide shots and close-ups.
Pros: Exmor HD CMOS sensor APS-C 20.3 MP, integrated WiFi (Smart Link); Wide range ISO (12800, 7 increments) NX System; rotating AMOLED display, shutter speed 1/8000; High Speed Capture, Movie Full Stereo 1080p HD, System I-Function 2.0; SVGA EVF
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
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...
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
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
Conclusion: The Samsung NX20 offers an exciting feature set, excellent quality at high sensitivities, good ergonomics and features to satisfy the needs of both experienced and novice photographers alike in a compact body.
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
