Samsung SMART Camera NX2000 Review


Samsung has steadily become the go-to camera manufacturer for touch screen LCD cameras and models with built-in Wi-Fi. With the growing popularity of the mirrorless ILC camera design, Samsung appears to have hit a home run with its NX2000 camera. This...

Very good image quality with 20.3 MP of resolution ; Large APS-C sized image sensor ; Large touch screen LCD ; Menu structure is constructed smartly for touch screen ; Compact mirrorless ILC camera that's comfortable to hold and use ; Good-looking...

Can't quite match performance of DSLR cameras ; Autofocus is a little slow at times, especially when shooting movies ; LCD screen has some glare issues ; Fingerprints will be obviously noticeable on the screen after several minutes of use ; Electronic...

Samsung NX2000 review


Recently, we dubbed the Samsung NX300 compact system camera (CSC) with an Editor's Choice award. Now along comes a modified version, the NX2000 that costs a lot less money. The NX2000 takes terrific photos when there's enough light, but is the savings...

High-quality 20.3-megapixel stills ; Excellent Wi-Fi implementation ; Very responsive large touchscreen ; Adobe Lightroom software included

Focusing not quite as fast as NX300 ; Some bizarre button labels ; Mic picks up camera noises

The Samsung NX2000 is a solid CSC that takes terrific photos with enough light, has a top-notch touchscreen, and a Wi-Fi arsenal that’s still best in its class.

Samsung NX2000


The Samsung NX2000 mirrorless camera has a huge touch-screen display and great Wi-Fi support, but it's a little slow to focus.

Compact. Sharp kit lens. Good performance at higher ISO settings. Raw shooting support. Large APS-C image sensor. Big touch-screen display. Excellent Wi-Fi implementation. 7.8fps burst shooting. 3D lens support. Includes Adobe Photoshop Lightroom software

Screen doesn't tilt. Display is hard to see in very bright light. No EVF option. Noticeable shutter lag. Limited physical controls. Lacks built-in flash. Dedicated battery charger not included

The Samsung NX2000 ($649.99 direct) is a mid-level body in Samsung's NX mirrorless camera lineup. It's aimed squarely at fans of touch-screen devices, as it eschews most physical controls in favor of a big 3.7-inch rear LCD. Its image quality is...

Samsung NX2000 Review


Sitting snugly between the NX300 and the NX1100, the NX2000 was designed for entry to mid level photographers and those wanting to step up to a mirrorless camera system. The NX2000 has some pretty good specs--it offers users a 20.3-megapixel CMOS...

Very good image quality ; Very good Wi-Fi connectivity ; Speedy AF in most lighting

Almost completely controlled by touchscreen ; Battery life is okay, but not great ; No external battery charger

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...

Samsung NX2000 review


The Samsung NX2000 adds NFC to Wi-Fi connectivity, updating 2012's NX1000, along with a larger touchscreen and at a lower price

Larger touchscreen ; Sharp colourful images ; Plenty of detail

microSD card ; No built-in viewfinder ; No built-in flash

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.

Samsung NX2000


Great features, great screen and a DSLR sensor in a compact body. What could go wrong?

Good, compact design ; Sound ISO noise control ; Large, responsive touchscreen

Poor metering performance ; No built-in flash ; Inconsistent colours

As well as offering full PASM (Program, Apperture, Shutter and Manual) shooting controls, the NX2000 offers a Smart capture mode as well as host of Scene modes targeted at making potentially complicated image capture techniques as accessible as...

Samsung NX2000 review - Interchangeable lens camera with 20.3 megapixel APS-C sensor


New entry-level ‘NX' interchangeable lens camera from the Korean electronics giant

Good value, large touch screen and app-like operational icons will be welcomed by those more familiar with smartphones than digital SLRs, sharply detailed and colour rich images straight out of the camera with minimal effort, increased connectivity...

If you do need to remove the media card it’s a pain as the NX2000 has opted for the small and fiddly fingernail-sized microSD, no onboard flash and no eye-level viewfinder

More evolution than revolution, the Samsung NX2000 should prove popular with photographers on a budget who want a better quality of camera for those special occasions, but not the added bulk of a DSLR and larger lenses. For those who already own Galaxy...
