Conclusion: The Samsung NX2000 mirrorless camera has a huge touch-screen display and great Wi-Fi support, but it's a little slow to focus.
Pros: Compact. Sharp kit lens. Good performance at higher ISO settings. Raw shooting support. Large APS-C image sensor. Big touch-screen display. Excellent Wi-Fi implementation. 7.8fps burst shooting. 3D lens support. Includes Adobe Photoshop Lightroom software.
Cons: Screen doesn't tilt. Display is hard to see in very bright light. No EVF option. Noticeable shutter lag. Limited physical controls. Lacks built-in flash. Dedicated battery charger not included.
Summary: Interchangeable Lens Cameras have certainly come a long way from being a clunky piece of contraption to now a sleek and sometimes pocketable device. Sadly though, there are some crucial aspects of the camera that got lost in the transition, such as the case with the Samsung NX2000.
Excerpt: In the late spring of 2013, Samsung announced their latest NX-series camera, the NX2000. With a lot going for it, the SMART Camera NX2000 features a 20.3-megapixel APS-C sized CMOS image sensor -- same as many DSLRs. The DRIMe IV Engine, or image processor, reduces noise, improves speed, and monitors accurate color reproduction. If taking pictures of sporting events, the fast 8fps continuous capture rate will come in handy.
Conclusion: On its own, the Samsung NX2000 is a solid CSC that takes terrific photos with enough light, has a top-notch touchscreen, and a Wi-Fi arsenal that’s still best in its class. However, the camera does not exist in a vacuum and we’d spend the extra money for the NX300. If we were looking to save $150, however, and put that money as partial payment on a second lens, then we have no problems recommending the NX2000.
Pros: High-quality 20.3-megapixel stills, Excellent Wi-Fi implementation, Very responsive large touchscreen, Adobe Lightroom software included
Cons: Focusing not quite as fast as NX300, Some bizarre button labels, Mic picks up camera noises
Samsung NX2000 review - Interchangeable lens camera with 20.3 megapixel APS-C sensor
7 October 2013
Excerpt: New entry-level ‘NX’ interchangeable lens camera from Korean electronics giant Samsung The minimalist shape of the NX2000 with its NFC, Wi-Fi connectivity, app-like screen icons yet large enthusiast pleasing image sensor More than any other manufacturer Samsung is going in hard when it comes to cameras that have wireless connectivity.
Pros: Good value, large touch screen and app-like operational icons will be welcomed by those more familiar with smartphones than digital SLRs, sharply detailed and colour rich images straight out of the camera with minimal effort, increased connectivity options
Cons: If you do need to remove the media card it’s a pain as the NX2000 has opted for the small and fiddly fingernail-sized microSD, no onboard flash and no eye-level viewfinder
Conclusion: The Samsung NX2000 offers some great features, including its connectivity and the fantastic rear LCD, but it's sometimes slow and the image quality falls a long way short of the competition.
Excerpt: Announced shortly before the potentially game changing Samsung Galaxy NX, the more traditional compact system Samsung NX2000 camera feels slightly overlooked in the hubbub. It being an update of last summer's popular entry-level Samsung NX1000 - awarded four stars by us at the time - Samsung has avoided throwing the baby out with the bathwater and looks-wise nothing much has changed, from the front at least.
Pros: Larger touchscreen, Sharp colourful images, Plenty of detail
Cons: microSD card, No built-in viewfinder, No built-in flash
Excerpt: The NX2000 employs the same 20.3 megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor as all the other NX-series cameras, which is around 1.5x physically larger than the Micro Four Thirds system and promises to rival the image quality of the majority of DSLRs, whilst still maintaining a small camera body that is very similar to the likes of the comparable Sony NEX, Olympus PEN and Panasonic G-series.
