Summary: The Samsung NX210 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). Excellent the photographic and multimedia features of the device, as it is practically perfect 3-inch AMOLED display with PenTile technology.
Pros: Built-in WiFi (Smart Link), and 3D Panorama, Selective Color, AMOLED display with PenTile technology, wide range ISO (12800, 7 steps); Exmor HD CMOS sensor APS-C 20.3 MP, Full HD 1080p Movies stereo; smart panel , Smart Filter 2.0
Summary: The Samsung NX210 offers you the high pixel count and compact dimensions of the NX200 and adds Wi-Fi 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...
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.
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...
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.
Summary: One third of the brand's alternatives to a DSLR, the Samsung NX210 compact system camera brings a 3-inch AMOLED screen to the party The Samsung NX210 makes up one third of the brand's new NX range of Compact System Cameras, all of which sport built-in Wi-Fi connectivity
Pros: Metal body construction, Large image sensor, Crisp AMOLED screen, Metal body construction, Large image sensor, Crisp AMOLED screen
Cons: No built-in stabiliser, No built-in viewfinder, Too similar to the NX1000, No built-in stabiliser, No built-in viewfinder, Too similar to the NX1000
Conclusion: The NX210 is an impressive compact system camera that relies on its mighty 20.3-megapixel APS-C sensor to deliver the goods. And deliver it does: images are not only large, but also detailed, in particular at the low-mid ISO settings. But for all its good the NX210 isn’t staggeringly different from the budget NX1000, and its £750 price tag may seem steep for what is essentially a cosmetic improvement over the more budget 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”
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...
