Samsung Galaxy NX


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...

Impressive image quality. AT&T/T-Mobile LTE connectivity. Minimal shutter lag. 7.4fps continuous shooting. 16GB internal storage. Integrated EVF. Fast Android performance. Includes Adobe Photoshop Lightroom software and 50GB Dropbox storage

Expensive. Minimal physical controls. Some compatibility issues with popular apps. Slow to take a photo from standby. Convoluted file names. Raw and JPG images always displayed separately. Does not apply in-camera lens distortion control. External...

In a year in which we've seen everything from affordable full-frame mirrorless cameras to the pocketable APS-C Ricoh GR, the Samsung Galaxy NX ($1,599.99 direct, body only) still takes the cake as the most ambitious digital imaging product to hit the...

Samsung Galaxy NX review: an overpriced Android-powered mirrorless camera


Samsung's flagship interchangeable-lens camera, the NX300, is by far the company's most impressive shooter to date. It offers stellar hybrid-autofocus

Android makes the move to mirrorless, but hits some snags along the way.

Above all the other issues that we have brought up about the Galaxy NX, there's one practical consideration that's paramount: its $1,599.95 price tag. Any way you approach it, it's hard to try to recommend the NX when it costs that much, especially...

Samsung Galaxy NX Review


Cell phones have had a camera component incorporated into their platforms for years now--even my ancient Motorola RAZR flip phone has a primitive 2 or 3GB photo capability. Smart phones have raised the image capture bar even higher as camera...

Samsung Galaxy NX review


At last, a company's broken ranks. We're big fans of compact system cameras, but other than upping the pixels and widening out the choice of lenses, few of the leading lights have done anything truly radical since the format first appeared back in 2008.

Android OS is great for sharing, good stills and video quality, i-Function lens system, bundled Adobe Lightroom 5 software, 4G speeds

It's physically huge, not going to be a tablet replacement, very expensive, data SIM adds to cost (if added)

At £1299 it's the Galaxy NX's price that's a big hurdle to overcome. For our US readers expect to pay $1699. Clearly, this isn't an impulse purchase, and it's not like you can offset some of that cost against the price of a tablet, either, as they're...
