Samsung NX210

CNET
1 day ago
  • Summary: The Samsung NX210 is an extremely capable, versatile and easy to use camera. Samsung's interchangeable lens system is one of the best and the inclusion of Wi-Fi is a boon, but an underwhelming performance in the video test dents its appeal, while other system cameras have a wider choice of lenses.
  • Cons: Slightly disappointing video performance; A touch expensive.

  • Summary: The Samsung NX210 offers you the high pixel-count and compact dimensions of the NX200 and adds WiFi-connectivity to the mix. The NX210 is slightly let down by long buffering times in raw mode and the JPEG engine's noise treatment at high sensitivities but overall it is a powerful photographic tool with a good feature set for its class and enjoyable to use.
  • Pros: Good image quality with very high resolution and good detail at base ISO, Well-designed and intuitive user interface, suitable for point-and-shoot users and enthusiasts alike, Good customizability including the useful iFn button, Attractive all-metal body with good build quality, 8fps continuous shooting at full resolution (but limited and slow buffering), Responsive overall operation, focus acquisition and startup/shutdown, Good quality video capture, Full manual con...
  • Cons: Longer than usual processing times after taking raw shots (but improved over NX200), Fairly aggressive noise reduction starts blurring detail at lower ISOs and mixes with high levels of chroma noise at higher sensitivities, No live view feed in continuous shooting, No access to battery and memory card when mounted on a tripod, Limited highlight range with Smart Range feature turned off, Excessive noise reduction when Smart Range is turned on, No in-camera raw file con...

A Camera That’s Learned to Share

Wired
16 August 2012
  • Excerpt: To say Samsung’s latest compact system camera offering is “feature-packed” seems like an enormous understatement. The new NX210 , the company’s latest mirrorless interchangeable-lens model, inherits the 20-megapixel APS-C CMOS image sensor from its brother, the NX200 , which was introduced less than nine months ago.
  • Pros: Solidly built metal casing. Design is both aesthetically pleasing and very comfortable to shoot with. The 18-55mm kit lens is optically stabilized for better images at slower shutter speeds. In manual focus mode, LED display automatically zooms to the focus point so you can achieve a more accurate focus. Lots of smart filters and a good panorama shooting mode.
  • Cons: No built-in flash. No flash control button, so you’ve got to use the function button and then scroll to the flash icon to change or adjust the flash output. Slow RAW processing. The Wi-Fi functionality would benefit from a touchscreen. Android apps aren’t compatible with many phones and tablets.

  • Excerpt: The Samsung NX210 ($899) is a compact mirrorless interchangeable lens camera -- err, Smart Camera. Samsung has given the "Smart Camera" moniker to all of their Wi-Fi equipped cameras this year, and their implementation of this feature is one of the best I've seen. In addition to it's Wi-Fi capabilities (which I'll cover in-depth in the review), the NX210 also features a new 20.3 Megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor, plenty of automatic and manual controls, a gorgeous OLED...

  • Conclusion: Six out of the nine lenses are also i-Function optics. This technology, which is unique to Samsung cameras, enables direct access to key controls (such as aperture and sensitivity), and is something the company is keen to push.

Samsung NX210 review

  • Summary: With a high-resolution sensor, only bettered in a compact system camera by the Sony NEX-7, and a host of innovative features, the Samsung NX210 should offer some healthy competition to the rest of the CSC market. The NX210 is a nice size, with a strong, well-built magnesium-alloy body. Colour rendition is good, although JPEG image quality could be a little better. Raw images reveal the true potential of the camera's sensor.

Samsung NX210 review

Macworld UK
30 November 2012
  • Excerpt: The Korean electronics giant’s most current CSCs are the trio of the NX1000, NX210 and NX20 , which are respectively the entry level, mid range, and flagship model.  We’ve previously been very impressed with the value for money and image quality of the NX1000, which shares the same APS-C sensor size as this, the NX210, and very similar body proportions, while both cameras feature Wi-Fi connectivity too.
  • Pros: Larger than average format sensor offering near DSLR quality but maintaining compact camera dimensions, easy to achieve good quality results, fair value, Wi-Fi adds a degree of future proofing, iFunction lens does more than just zoom or focus
  • Cons: No built-in image stabilisation measures (via stabilised lens only)

Samsung NX210 review

Pocket Lint
28 August 2012
  • Excerpt: Samsung’s 20.3-megapixel, APS-C sized sensor has already been proven to work a treat in NX210’s predecessor, the NX200 , as well as the latest NX1000 and NX20 models. Its inclusion in the NX210 means that image quality is assured, but in the same breath it also means that the NX210 doesn’t add any image-quality bells and whistles to the features list above and beyond the more budget NX1000 model.
  • Pros: Great image quality for such high resolution, enough lenses to compete against the competition, quality construction
  • Cons: Pricey, doesn’t offer much beyond budget NX1000 model, mis-focusing in low light when using AF-assist lamp, not possible to add a viewfinder, burst mode processing "lock out”

17 July 2012
  • Excerpt: The new NX210 has an angular and hard-edged design that is designed to appeal more to the serious photography enthusiast than upgraders from a simpler compact camera. To that end, the NX210 employs the same 20 megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor as its predecessor, 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...
