Very good image quality, Very good Wi-Fi connectivity
The Samsung NX2000 sits very comfortably between the NX1100 and the NX300--offering users a high quality camera for a reasonable price. If fact, at the time of this review we were able to find the NX2000 for about $600 (making it the same price as the NX1100. That's a $150 savings over the NX300. But is the price difference worth it? Not in my book. I would spend the extra money to get a camera with a little more beef and a hybrid AF system.
I'm not saying the NX2000 is a bad camera.
Delivers excellent still image quality
Sharing the same core DNA as the other NX models, the new NX2000 offers a much more phone-like interface than either the NX300 or range-topping NX20, with built-in wi-fi and NFC connectivity too, so for some people it will actually offer a more familiar handling experience.
Very good value for money, Adobe Lightroom 4 included
The Samsung NX2000 is a fairly compact mirrorless camera with a high resolution 20.3 megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor, and a large 3.7inch touch screen on the back. The camera delivers impressive image quality with excellent levels of detail and colour with good noise performance. The camera has a good level of control, with the large touch screen helping here, although visibility was not great when outdoors.
Outstanding image quality, Touchscreen LCD is large and sharp
The primary drawback to this camera is it has a slightly higher starting price than some other models in this segment of the market. Considering its feature list, though, the NX2000's price is fair and this camera is a good value. However, some intermediate-level photographers who are looking for an entry-level interchangeable lens cameras may not quite have the budget to afford this feature-rich Samsung offering.
Larger touchscreen, Sharp colourful images, Plenty of detail
The Samsung NX2000 offers the same 20.3-megapixel effective resolution from an APS-C sensor as last year's NX1000 - but that's good news.
We also get a larger touch screen LCD, NFC connectivity, expanded ISO range topping out at ISO25600 and other less important operational tweaks.
Image quality, Ergonomic design, Decent build
Interchangeable Lens Cameras have certainly come a long way from being a clunky piece of contraption to now a sleek and sometimes pocketable device. Sadly though, there are some crucial aspects of the camera that got lost in the transition, such as the case with the Samsung NX2000.
Maybe it's just a case of an old dog, new trick on my part, but I'm really disappointed with the scarcity of physical button on this camera to give way for the fairly large display.
Impressive image quality, AT&T/T-Mobile LTE connectivity
The Samsung Galaxy NX is the company's second attempt at putting Android on a camera, building on the point-and-shoot Galaxy Camera. This time the company went with a mirrorless design, but it's as much held back by its Android operating system as it is helped by it.
Excellent image quality
Ultimately we think that the Galaxy Camera serves the consumer better, and the NX300 the keen prosumer - and that's not even looking outside the Samsung family. Despite its huge potential, we can't justify recommending the Samsung Galaxy NX until its price, performance and user interface issues have been addressed.
Slow processing, No physical buttons
Ultimately, we're just not sure who this camera is aimed at. The professional who has this kind of money to spend on gear like this will no doubt get very quickly frustrated with some of the camera's problems, while the beginner who is likely to be tempted by the large screen and Android is unlikely to want to spend this kind of cash.
Unfortunately, for the price, this camera just isn't good enough and we'd be hard pushed to recommend it to anyone but early adopters with money to burn.
Excellent 4.8inch screen, Very good image quality
For the gadget obsessed, where money is no object, this camera can work well, particularly as a point and shoot camera. If you simply point and shoot without changing many settings, and shoot in JPEG only, you will be extremely pleased with the high image quality this camera produces. You also get access to a good range of Samsung NX lenses, and the large 4.8inch screen on the back is simply gorgeous, the best on any camera currently available.
Good stills and video quality
Overall we're a little stuck in limbo land when it comes to scoring the Galaxy NX. Undeniably good image quality is what really carries the camera, decent operation and great sharing features are other positives that also give it plenty to shout about. But the physical size and exorbitant price will be at odds with some buyers.
Easy uploading via Wi-Fi or 4G
Needless to say there are a lot of advantages to using the SamsungGalaxy NX, and it's not hard to see that one day all cameras (not just premium ones) will be made this way - in offering the ability to go online, and more besides, via the camera itself with a couple of taps of its touch screen.
Richly detailed colourful results thanks to larger lens mount and sensor
It's all about pictures however and using the general-purpose 18-55mm kit zoom supplied it's possible to get those attractive, DSLR-style, shallow depth of field effects, even if we found busy scenes could confuse the camera's AF as to what it should be focusing on. More positively, the back screen ensures that images always look an absolute knock-out. As a first of its kind product the minimalist design and high asking price will inevitably divide option however.
