Samsung GX-20 Review

 

The Samsung GX-20 is a 14.6 megapixel, mid-range DSLR camera, which temporarily led the megapixel race when it was first announced back in January. Since then Sony have also unveiled a 14 megapixel camera, the A350, so Samsung no longer have everything...

At first glance the Samsung GX20 simply looks like an incremental upgrade of the GX10, with relatively few additions on offer apart from the headline-grabbing 14 megapixel resolution. Whilst the increased image size is certainly worthy of attention,...

Samsung GX-20 Digital Camera Review

 

The most notable quality of the Samsung GX-20 is its unpretentiousness. It is a smart, well-designed, functional DSLR that doesn't pretend to be more than it is. Having said that, it doesn't need to. The GX-20 looks like a professional DSLR should: it...

The GX-20 also feels like a professional DSLR. It has enough weight behind it to rest securely in hand and yet, at just over 800 grams, remains relatively lightweight for a DSLR of its magnitude. Its rubberised handgrip allows for a solid three-finger...

Samsung GX-20

 

The Samsung GX-20 is a 14.6 (CMOS Sensor) Megapixel Digital SLR camera featuring Optical Image Stabilization, and a 2.7 inch large wide colour TFT LCD (230,000 pixels). The GX-20 is essentially a Pentax K20D with a slightly different body design …...

With the GX-20, continuous shooting at 3 fps (frames per second) is possible; up to 9 fps; giving the user the best chance to get a great picture.

Samsung GX-20

 

Live View needs some Live Aid

Huge picture size, no noticeable noise up to ISO 800, solidly constructed, optical image stabilisation

Live View is implemented poorly, no dedicated buttons for ISO or shooting mode, shutter button could be better, loud shutter, slightly soft image quality

This camera feels and sounds like a beast. And it is a beast. It'll produce very good images at a 14.6Mp size, with practically no noise up to ISO 800. However, its Live View feature is worthless.

Samsung GX-20 review

 

Feature-packed it might be, but its hefty price-tag means the GX-20 will have to pull something special out of its hat to wow us…

The performance doesn’t quite justify the price, but this is still a rock-solid camera with great features

Samsung GX10 DSLR camera

 

Samsung's entry in to the DSLR marketplace came by rebadging Pentax DSLRs and allows the company to build a corner in the market from which it can attempt to expand its market share. Samsung threw money at building its compact model market share and it...

Image quality, handling, easy to use, build, price, access to massive Pentax system of accessories and lenses

Sensor cleaning system, propensity to underexpose,

A competent and well-specified DSLR supported by Pentax’s massive system of accessories and lenses provides great results and super build and should be high on the list of those wanting an advanced comprehensively specified DSLR on a budget.

Samsung GX-20 review

 

Is this tempting Digital SLR worth choosing over the competition?

Strong colours ; Easy to use ; Robust build ; Impressive image quality

Dodgy Lens kit ; Limited feature set ; Bulky

The tweaks and reworked menus can’t hide the fact that the GX20 is basically the same as the Pentax K20D. But the K20D benefits from the Pentax brand cachet and has a couple of useful features missing here, which leaves the GX20 in a kind of no-man’s-land

Samsung GX-20

 

Into its fourth collaboration with Pentax since the GX-1L dSL, Samsung has come a long way to providing an alternate photographic solution for advanced photographers.

Samsung Australia says it will announce pricing for the GX-20 in the coming weeks, expecting it to be around the AU$1400-1600 mark. Check back soon for our full review.

Samsung GX-20

 

Samsung's a relative newcomer to the digital SLR market, so does the GX20 measure up?

It's hard to get excited by the GX-20 for two reasons. First, the definitio is average despite those 14 million pixels. Second, the Pentax K20D is better and much the same price
