  • Conclusion: Samsung is an extremely large company with a vast portfolio of products and services from smartphones and tablets, to TVs and home theater systems, and even appliances.

  • Cons: Slow buffer clearing even with fast UHS-I card, Buffer depths when shooting RAW files could be better, Mediocre dynamic range for an APS-C sensor, Auto and Incandescent white balance struggle indoors, RAW files converted with Adobe LR or PS can look significantly different from camera JPEGs, with...

  • Summary: At the beginning of 2014, Samsung's award-winning NX-series got a new sibling soon, in the form of the NX30.

DP Review
21 May 2014
  • Summary: The Samsung NX30 provides a DSLR-like experience in a mirrorless camera, with the very un-DSLR-like provision of great live view performance. Its built-in EVF, high-resolution APS-C sensor and connectivity features are very useful, and though we don't feel it's a class-leader in any particular way,...
  • Pros: High resolution 20 megapixel APS-C sensor, Good image quality, especially with a bit of Raw processing, Quick hybrid AF system rarely falters in good or moderate light, High resolution built-in EVF turns on automatically via eye sensor, Flip-out LCD helpful for video and tripod work, Good level o...
  • Cons: Screen and EVF prone to lag in low light, Auto ISO limited to 3200 maximum, Default noise reduction leaves noise behind and drains color from scene, On/off switch easily bumped into On position, One proper command dial not as useful as twin dial setup, Continuous AF only auto focus option while r...

Samsung NX30 Review

Digitaltrends
4 May 2014
  • Conclusion: Like the NX300, we can enthusiastically recommend the NX30 – it’s a high-quality CSC that delivers fine results. No question, it’s a bit on the expensive side but one mitigating factor is the inclusion of a full copy of Lightroom 5.0 editing software and a good starter kit lens.
