  • Excerpt: When reviewing cameras, I like to put them through some real-life rigors. So, when my editor handed me the Samsung NX 300 a week before my friend’s Wild West-meets-Pinterest wedding at her family’s ranch in New Mexico, I figured a weekend in cowgirl country presented a great opportunity for some tests.
  • Pros: Clean optics and a nice big sensor. Touchscreen display is easy to use and high-quality — I didn’t miss a viewfinder. Fast image capture. Manual controls are good, and auto mode yields great results. Wi-Fi sharing tools make image back-up a snap. Compact with retro looks, totally hip.
  • Cons: Gratuitous 3-D functions distract from a perfectly good lens — get the cheaper 2-D version. Underwhelming in-camera editing tools. Clunky novelty capture features. Super-shaky video — at least it’s 1080p. Purple lens flare and harsh automatic flash make for some tricky photographic situations.

  • Excerpt: Big, bulky cameras aren't for everybody. You don't need chunky, SLR-like styling to get interchangeable-lens versatility, and some of us are more than happy to forego a few features for street shooter anonymity. Back in 2011, Samsung answered that need, dropped the electronic viewfinder from the then-flagship NX11, and created the stealthy NX200 mirrorless.
  • 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, Larger, higher-res AMOLED display, Articulated AMOLED monitor tilts up 90 degrees, down 30 degrees for versatility, Very fast Hybrid phase / contrast-detect autofocus consist...

Samsung NX300 Review

Digitaltrends
9 May 2013
  • 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. A state-of-the-art Wi-Fi implementation makes it that more attractive. Given all of this, the Samsung NX300 is a hands-down Digital Trends Editor’s Choice.
  • 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

Samsung NX300 review

Amateur Photographer
3 April 2014
  • 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. Handling is improved through the LCD screen, which is a fantastic touch-enabled unit with a large, bright display. However, I would still like the option of an electronic viewfinder next time round.

Good Gear Guide.au
31 July 2013
  • Summary: Samsung's NX300 is a compact system camera that feels good to use and it can produce excellent overall quality. It has plenty of Wi-Fi features to play with, too, but only a couple of them are useful, and they will drain the battery quickly.
  • 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

  • Summary: It’s hard to get into every nook and cranny of a camera, but what we’ve seen in the Samsung NX300, we’ve liked.
  • Pros: Decent image quality, Comfortable ergonomics, Big enough feature set for both amateur and enthusiast photographers, NFC and wireless means you can easily move files from the camera to your phone or tablet, Lightroom included in the bundle
  • Cons: Low light performance could be sharper, Flash isn't built in and requires use of hot shoe, Vari-angle screen doesn't offer much angle from below
