Samsung NX20

16 May 2014
  • Conclusion: Terrific Wi-Fi features earn the Samsung NX20 a runner-up spot among compact system cameras. It makes it easy to share and post photos, use your smartphone to control your camera and more. But the NX20 feels sluggish next to its rivals, and its photos -- although very good -- aren't quite up to par with better-reviewed competitors.
  • Pros: Best-in-class Wi-Fi connectivity, Good image quality overall, Intuitive DSLR-style form and controls
  • Cons: Sluggish in some ways, Plastic body, Audio quality only fair

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.

Samsung NX20

4 December 2012
  • Summary: The Samsung NX20 is a great camera, consistently producing sharp images full of detail and realistic colours. It's a joy to use, thanks in part to the i-Function lens system, which makes it easy to adjust the most common shooting controls. However, at around £900, it's expensive compared to its rivals.
  • Pros: i-Function lens system; design and feel; Image quality; Built-in Wi-Fi.
  • Cons: Expensive.

  • Summary: 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...
  • Pros: Smart Auto shooting mode is accurate and easy in all situations, Dedicated Video Capture Button is always ready to record, Outstanding image quality in all of our images, Image Stabilization helps keep images sharp, 3.0-inch AMOLED LCD is one of the nicest we have seen, Excellent shooting performance, Comfortable and easy to handle camera body, Simple camera controls with enough control for full manual mode, WiFi takes sharing images and camera functions to a whole ne...
  • Cons: Expensive, will be an investment to get started, Highest ISO settings are not useable, Very short battery life compared to a dSLR, No external audio input

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

12 October 2012
  • 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
