Excerpt: --- The Samsung NX300 got our nod in the best mirrorless camera for $1,000 category. The affordably priced, compact mirrorless camera gave plenty of room for some really excellent range in lenses. Curious to see how it stacked up against the competition in this price range?
Pros: Attractive "modern retro" camera design blends old with new, Very good image quality, with reduced noise from new sensor, Consistent and logical control layout coupled with touch-screen operation, Clear, simple user interface and menu system, Better-placed one-touch Movie button above thumb rest,...
Cons: Slightly bigger and heavier than the previous model, Leather-look body panel creaks, is made of hard plastic, Gorgeous metal top deck emphasizes the less sophisticated feel of the rest of the body, Battery / SD card door is flimsy, Tilting screen doesn't cater to self-portraits, Touchscreen attra...
Conclusion: We have no reservations recommending this camera – especially for people without a collection of lenses from another brand. This would be a great next-step camera for someone who wants high-quality stills and solid videos from an interchangeable lens camera with a large sensor.
Pros: Super stills, very good 1080p videos, High-quality 3.3-inch touchscreen, Best implementation of Wi-Fi in a camera
Cons: No EVF, not even as an option, 3D lens way too expensive
Excerpt: The Samsung NX300 with 21.67MP is the third cheapest Compact System Camera in Samsung's NX line-up, sitting above the less advanced NX3000 and NX mini. It comes with a leading ISO range of 100-25,600, a huge 3.3in tiltable touchscreen and full HD (1080p) video recording at 60fps.
Summary: On the whole, the improvements to the NX300 are incremental rather than radical. However, as the NX210 was already a very good camera, the same can be said of the NX300. The new model is more stylish when viewed from the front and top.
Summary: Things are really heating up in this space and when Samsung's NX300 landed I didn't quite know what to make of it at first. A DSLM (digital single lens mirrorless) with an APS-C (advanced photo system type C) sensor? What a curious beast.

Pros: Crisp and clear image quality, The Wi-Fi can come in handy, Relatively good high ISO performance, Quick performance
Cons: Kit lens has noticeable distortion, Battery life drains quickly when Wi-Fi is used, No proper charger, No EVF option
