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
Excerpt: Sitting snugly between the NX300 and the NX1100, the NX2000 was designed for entry to mid level photographers and those wanting to step up to a mirrorless camera system. The NX2000 has some pretty good specs--it offers users a 20.3-megapixel CMOS sensor, an ISO range of 100-25600, and a continuous shutter speed of 8 frames per second.
Pros: Very good image quality, Very good Wi-Fi connectivity, Speedy AF in most lighting
Cons: Almost completely controlled by touchscreen, Battery life is okay, but not great, No external battery charger
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.
Excerpt: The Samsung NX2000 is an entry level mirrorless camera from Samsung with interchangeable NX mount lenses and features a 20.3 megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor as well as one of the largest screens on a mirrorless camera, with a 3.7inch high resolution touch screen. The NX2000 is available for £499 and includes Adobe Lightroom 4 in the box.
Pros: Large 3.7inch touch screen, Wi-Fi connectivity, Very good value for money, Adobe Lightroom 4 included, Compact 20-50mm kit lens, Dual axis electronic level
Cons: Micro SD/SDHC/SDXC, Difficult to see screen outdoors, 20-50mm kit lens doesn't feature OIS
