The best digital cameras by Samsung of 2015 are mainly in the fast-moving compact camera segment as well as the newer segment of mirrorless Interchangeable lens cameras.

Samsung, being the world's largest technology company, has over the last few years overcome their brand-image as a "cheap alternative to Japanese products". Still they are able to maintain the very competitive pricing while they consistently improve the specs.

Samsung has over the past few years unleashed a diversified product line in the market in the point and shoot category and has managed to get a good market share by the sheer variety of the products and the strong pricing. The best Samsung digital cameras offer some unique features such as Dual view LCD screens (in the PL150), larger touch screens and bigger optical zooms which make them more competitive options.

With their NX system of cameras, Samsung is capturing the attention of the pros as well. NX system is the lens mount used for NX series of APS-C mirrorless interchangeable lens camera by Samsung. It comes with autofocus and image stabilization. Recently Samsung launched a new camera control feature called i-Function, available on some of their NX lenses, in which an electrical interface provides control of camera settings via a ring and button on the lens.

  • - At around ISO 6400 and higher, though, detail loss is quite noticeable with a lot of blotchiness and smearing from the NR processing.
    - Image quality drops when shooting high-speed continuous mode.
    - No OLPF means sharper images, but also more susceptible to aliasing artifacts when used with a sharp lens.
    - No built-in flash (but small external flash is included).
    - Compact, lightweight design -- a great travel camera.


  • The Samsung NX500 is a solid mirrorless camera with 4K recording capabilities, but it requires you to take some extra steps to edit video.


  • The new Samsung NX500 is by far the cheapest interchangeable lens camera to offer 4K video recording, coming in at less than half the price of the flagship NX1 whilst cramming in most of that camera's features into the design of the more compact previous NX300 model. It isn't quite as simple as NX1 meets NX300, though, as the NX500 makes quite a few concessions, particularly on the video side, to hit both the aggressive price point and to the compact dimensions.


  • The Samsung NX1 has it all: quick focus, 28-megapixel resolution, 4K video, Wi-Fi, and a weather-sealed design. It's our Editors' Choice for high-end mirrorless cameras.


  • The exciting new NX1 is a serious statement of intent by Samsung, who until now haven't had a professional level camera in their NX range. The NX1 certainly delivers in that regard, both in terms of the specifications and the execution, offering a mouth-watering array of cutting-edge features that should excite both stills and video photographers. With two pro lenses recently released (the 16-50mm and 50-150mm) and more on the way, they've importantly also started to create a system for the NX1 and presumably subsequent follow-up models. Although it's still very early days (and some would say long overdue), the Samsung NX1 is a great start to the electronic giant's professional camera range.


  • The Samsung NX1 is an excellent camera. It feels great in the hand, is weatherproof, provides plenty of control, is enjoyable to use and produces superb quality images.


  • Samsung's NX3000 entry-level mirrorless camera boasts strong image quality and well-implemented Wi-Fi features, but it's a little slow to lock focus.


  • While the new Samsung NX3000 loses some of the more impressive features of the NX2000 model that it replaces, most notably the massive touchscreen display and faster burst shooting mode, it offers more than enough beginner-friendly features at a very competitive price to once again earn our Highly Recommended award.

    This compact, Wi-Fi-friendly camera lets you swap lenses and excels in low light. But the auto focus is slow and inaccurate, and burst shooting is disappointing, making it a poor choice for demanding photographers.


  • The Samsung NX Mini is a compact, Wi-Fi-connected mirrorless camera that runs circles around smartphones, but manual control is a bit of a chore.


  • To some extent the Samsung NX mini will always be a balance of compromise. Its small size means you get a smaller than average sensor for a CSC, which in turn adversely affects image quality. Fortunately this isn't severely reduced and is certainly a major step up from a normal compact camera, but if you're a stickler for capturing every last detail and want crystal clear shots at high ISO settings, most Micro Four Thirds or APS-C-sized sensors will trump the NX mini.

    This small Wi-Fi camera has a flip-up "selfie" LCD, but offers few native lenses. Auto focus is a little lazy, and low-light performance is so-so - but burst modes go gangbusters. If you only take simple shots, you will enjoy the otherwise high image and video quality.


  • The Samsung WB350F is essentially the same as last year's WB800F camera, with added NFC connectivity, a repositioned pop-up flash, loss of a handgrip and mini HDMI port, and the adoption of the micro SD memory card format to make it slimmer.
    While the Samsung WB350F matches most of its main rivals in terms of features and handling, image quality is still not so great.


  • All in all, then, this is a versatile, decent performer, with the zoom range, manual options and easy sharing features that will immediately endear it to more ambitious travel photographers – especially those who aren't ready to step up to a DSLR or mirrorless device. It lived up to our expectations, and it's fairly priced, to boot.


  • For the price, the WB350F is a good camera coupled with a terrific long lens, easy-to-use operation, and excellent Wi-Fi. While it may not be as thin as many slim compact cameras, it’s not bad considering that a 21x optical zoom lens is packed inside it. Autofocusing is good and performance speed is fine, even though it isn’t the fastest camera you can find. Image quality is generally good, especially if you are using them in small to medium sizes, but they aren’t as sharp when viewed in larger sizes and suffer from noise in low-light situations.
