Samsung NX100 Brief Hands-on Preview


Samsung was the first company outside the Micro Four Thirds consortium to release a mirrorless interchangable lens camera. The distinctly DSLR-like NX10 made little fuss about its mirrorless construction, concentrating instead on offering familiar...

No built-in flash ; White balance was off at times using the Auto setting ; Images captures at ISO 6400 a Very noisy ; Body feels a bit "cheap" to some

Samsung has taken their popular NX10 and shrunk it down to form the NX100. With loads of useful exposure options, robust performance, and excellent image quality, the NX100 is a formidable opponent in the compact EVIL category. Read more in our

Samsung NX100 review


The Samsung NX100 is a newcomer in the popular segment of system cameras. This is a collective term for a group of cameras from different manufacturers but with a common denominator: the lack of a mirror. It is a so-called ‘mirror-less' system, or as...

Our first acquaintance with the Samsung NX100 during a press event was already pleasant and we were immediately convinced. We were presented a new system camera with some distinguishing features in an already heavily competitive market. The Samsung...

Samsung NX100 DSLR Camera Review


The Samsung NX100 is an interchangeable lens camera that offers 720p HD video recording. The camera does feature a sleek design, but it ran into a number of problems in our video testing, particularly with motion, sharpness, and overall low light...

Samsung NX100 Review


The Samsung NX100 is the second new mirrorless compact system camera this year from Samsung, following the more DSLR-like NX10 model. In addition to a lighter and more compact body and a boost in ISO speed to 6400, the biggest innovation is the NX100's...

The Samsung NX100 is a natural evolution of the expanding NX-series, providing a more compact and lighter overall package than the existing NX10 model which competes more clearly with the Panasonic GF, Olympus EP and Sony NEX cameras. The NX100 isn't...

Samsung NX100


Even casual observers of the digital camera market have to be surprised by the flood of compact system camera (CSC or mirrorless) models that have hit stores in the past year. One of the most recent CSC bodies is the 14.6-megapixel Samsung NX100, a...

Attractive CSC camera design that combines old school and new school good looks ; Large APS-C size image sensor provides excellent image quality in good light with attractive color ; Logical layout of controls including a generously sized shutter ...

Slick camera body is easy to drop ; Polycarbonate build not as sturdy as some competing models ; No built-in flash ; No built-in viewfinder ; Kit lens not as wide as most ; Wobbly rolling shutter effect during aggressive panning when ...

At first it was hard to know what to make of the Samsung NX100 digital camera. On the one hand, this stylish CSC (compact system camera) model is one of the best cameras we've seen in this class with an attractive, simple design that's comfortable to...

Samsung NX100 - Convenience, Captured


It's those fast, fleeting moments that everyone especially wants to capture perfectly. While most cameras would take up too much time with the many buttons and the complex user interface, the Samsung NX100 lets users make the camera adjustment with...

iFunction, mirrorless feature, interchangeable lens ; great image quality and functionality

No built-in flash, fragile camera body ; price as high as micro four thirds

The Samsung NX100 is mostly ideal for taking photos in events, where the camera’s fast functionality and capability to keep up with the fast changes in setting and environment is highly valued. Although it can compete with micro four third cameras, the...

Review: Samsung NX100 compact interchangeable lens camera


The NX100 is an innovative little camera, designed to lure compact shooters up to a larger sensor compact interchangeable lens (CILC) system. It has decent image quality and a large APS-C sensor, but is lacking a few key features, such as an integrated...

Images look crisp and colorful on the 3-inch Active-Matrix Organic Light-Emitting Diode display, as does the menu system which is clear and easy to navigate. Text and number readouts look great on the LCD screen as well, particularly the shutter speed,...

Samsung NX100 Digital Camera Review


The design of the NX100 is no doubt the main area in which changes have been made to give users an obvious differentiation from the NX10 positioning the NX100 more toward the advanced compact market than the DSLR one. Removing the electronic viewfinder...
