Samsung NX20 Review

 

The Samsung NX20 is an excellent camera for both casual and advanced users. However, avoid the high-speed burst mode.

Overall, the Samsung NX20 is an excellent camera. Still quality is superb and movies are very good. It’s a good choice for both aim-and-forgetters and those who tweak every image to the nth degrees. However, avoid the high-speed burst mode or you may...

Samsung NX20

 

The NX20 is Samsung's top-end mirrorless camera, but it doesn't perform as well as its less-expensive sibling, the NX1000—or other models in its price range.

Excellent Wi-Fi implementation. Sharp, articulating rear display. Good control layout.

Expensive. So-so LCD EVF. Kit lens soft at 18mm. Slow to start and shoot.

Like other recent Samsung cameras, the NX20 is equipped with Wi-Fi. It's one of the few compact interchangeable lens cameras to offer this feature, and the Wi-Fi experience is one of the best you'll find in any camera. It's very easy to transfer photos...

Samsung NX20 review

 

The most interesting part of the camera market right now lies right in between a point-and-shoot and a DSLR. Basically, the former category is being eaten alive by ever-improving smartphone cameras, and the latter is a fairly mature market without a...

Excellent image and video quality ; Useful interface and controls ; Cool Wi-Fi features

Expensive ; Unremarkable kit lens ; Some performance quirks

A very good camera, but for whom?

Review: Samsung NX20's well-rounded features appeal to both enthusiasts and snapshooters

 

The Samsung NX20 holds its own against the competition and even exceeds other mirrorless interchangeable-lens models thanks to its well-implemented Wi-Fi.

Well-implemented Wi-Fi with apps for iOS and Android ; Good image quality ; Built-in flash and electronic viewfinder ; High-resolution, fully articulated AMOLED monitor ; Remote app available for Android only

Mixed performance ; Kit lens doesn't zoom smoothly ; Power switch is difficult to turn on/off

With other APS-C based Compact System Cameras (CSCs) from a company that also starts with "S" getting most of the press these days, it's sometimes easy to overlook Samsung and its line of NX models. This should start to change. The 20.3MP flagship NX20...

Camera Review: Samsung NX20

 

Finally a decent wireless setup in a digital camera

Your iPhone still kicks its butt

Camera manufacturers have tried to add decent wireless connectivity to digital cameras for the last decade with little success. While the built-in Wi-Fi in the Samsung NX20 doesn’t come close to being as seamless to use as your iPhone, it’s a step in...
