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
Summary: 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.
Pros: Great image quality, Better than average kit zoom, DSLR flexibility with P&S ease of use, Impressive maximum shutter speed
Cons: The battery/SD card compartment door is hinged on the wrong side, Video start-stop button could have been less awkwardly placed, Cost
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

Excerpt: NX-series cameras were once the also-rans of the compact system camera (CSC) market, but with the NX20, Samsung has found its mojo. This is one of the most expensive CSCs currently available, but there are some compelling arguments to justify the price. Continuous performance is at 8fps, and the 20-megapixel resolution is one of the highest of any CSC – only the 24-megapixel Sony NEX-7 is higher.
