    - Manual is poorly written, likely a machine translation.
    - Solid, hinged plastic door covers ports.
    - Viewfinder hump makes the NX10 taller than smaller rivals.
    - Inconsistent Auto White Balance, especially indoors.
    - Contrast adjustment works on shadows mostly, does little to tame highlights.
    - Contrast adjustment impacts saturation and vice versa.
    - AMOLED is a little too soft for fine focusing.
    - Onboard flash has a good range.


  • While there are enough drawbacks to keep the Samsung NX10 from being a no-brainer choice among interchangeable-lens cameras, it's still a well-designed model that's fun to shoot with and capable of producing very nice photos.

    - There is a continual autofocus setting on the NX10, but it doesn't work nearly as well as the autofocus function on a regular camcorder.

    There's a lot to like in the Samsung NX100 but there also a few things that seem a bit off. In terms of looks, speed and features, the NX100 is one of the best compact system cameras on the market; fun to shoot with and easy to use in a stylish camera package. While image quality in good light is among the best we've seen in a camera in this class, the NX100 is not the most versatile performer, stumbling in dim conditions at high ISOs.

    The NX100 is an interesting interchangeable lens camera that is cheap and takes good pictures, but the missing features (flash, viewfinder and image stabilization) make it a poor pick.


  • The Samsung NX100 is a natural evolution of the expanding NX-series, providing a more compact and lighter overall package than the existing NX10 model which competes more clearly with the Panasonic GF, Olympus EP and Sony NEX cameras. The NX100 isn't quite as small or as well-realised as we'd have liked, but it's currently by far the cheapest way to buy into the Compact System Camera revolution.

    - Optical Picture Stabilization only buys you about a stop.

    - A bit on the bulky side, this DSLR still feels solid and comfortable in the hand, and has controls that are well placed for productive photography.
    - If you're shooting JPEGs and want to quickly switch to a higher-quality RAW image, you simply press the button.
    - Colors were accurate and nicely saturated.

    - Most defects absent in RAW DNG files.
