Summary: I went from a 10 MP canon, that served me well for the past 5 years, to this 20.3 MP Samsung. The results are amazing. Still learning how to use all of it's features and tools. This new tech is where this class of camera is going. small, light weight and powerful. Don't forget to order the Memory Disc, btw. Get the biggest it will take. If you already have a Samsung Smart Phone, you will have a lot of versatility with this camera.
With the NX30 Samsung finds its groove and worth seriously considering...

Summary: This is my first mirrorless camera, and I am coming to it with a ground in Canon cameras, including the PowerShot G12 (fixed lens), 5D & 7D (DSLRs). This camera is a great value. The image quality is very competitive for its segment, the video quality quite serviceable, and the ergonomics are outstanding. Really my only grievance is that they picked an odd resolution for the 24fps frame rate. It's bizarre because the camera will do 1920x1080p @ 30fps and 60fps....
Summary: Let me start off by saying that I by no means have ANY experience with photography, to the point where the only camera I have ever owned is the built in camera on my phone :) With that being said, I can't really compare it to any other cameras out in the market so my review is solely based on my experience with the NX30. The reason I decided to go with this camera over the Cannon's and Nikons of the world is purely for the bells and whistles if I'm going to be honest.
Summary: I liked the camera, but sent it back and bought the nikon d5300. Did this because more lenses are available for the nikon. The samsung worked great, picture quality was very good and its size is nice.
Great performance, excellent quality pictures and lots of fun.

Summary: I started with my first camera being the Samsung NX1100 less than a year ago and found quite easy to handle the OS of that camera, the Samsung NX30 now varies a bit from the OS but it is so simple I just love it (I studied Computer Science and I can understand how simple things can be made for an end user). I haven't really use the camera a 100% since I only like to shoot in Manual mode but it's got plenty of stuff to play with.
I couldn't figure out if there was a way to sharpen it or if it was just like that. Samsung support was no help

Summary: Overall this is a really decent camera that can contend with the other DSLR's out there. One quick tip that has caused me a lot of grief- Out of the box the viewfinder was extremely blurry. I couldn't figure out if there was a way to sharpen it or if it was just like that. Samsung support was no help. One day I pulled the viewfinder out and noticed that the little wheel to sharpen the viewfinder focus was hiding on the side of the viewfinder.
This camera is absolutely amazing it's fun to play with does so much extra ...

Summary: This camera is absolutely amazing it's fun to play with does so much extra like upload photos straight to my note 3 I can take pictures whether I'm driving or I'm trying to capture stars in the desert I'm so glad I went over my budget for this it's so beyond worth it samsung has out done themselves and this is just perfect for my photography (:
Summary: This is a real camera, capable of doing things that other cameras cannot do, and priced at a point that anything similar (competitors product) would be 2x the price. To start with, its a very respectable 20Mega pixel, APS-C CMOS sensor delivers shots bursting with sharp detail and intense colours, whilst the fast 1/8000sec shutter speed, continuous shooting at 9 frames per second and hybrid autofocus. My Canons do 6 and 7ish.
