Samsung NX200


There are some cameras that we absolutely love, some we find downright disappointing and others that get the job done, albeit with mediocre results. Samsung's digital imaging devices typically fall within that last category -- they're moderately...

Excellent battery life ; 20.3 megapixel stills and 1080p video ; Accurate white balance and exposure

Expensive ; Limited lens selection ; Inconsistent focusing system

Samsung's NX200 is a worthy successor to the NX100, but its feature set doesn't justify the high price.

Samsung NX200 (with 18-55mm lens review


With excellent photo quality, solid performance, and a very nicely designed body, the Samsung NX200 distinguishes itself in an increasingly crowded field. But $900 still seems like a bit much to ask for a camera that's not at the front of its class on...

With excellent photos for a sub-$1,000 model and a nicely designed user interface, the Samsung NX200 is a compelling option for image-first photographers.

For its price, the NX200 feels light on important features; it lacks an option for a viewfinder, and it cries out for an articulated LCD. And while its shooting performance is fine, in-camera operations like playback and changing settings can get held...

The Samsung NX200's photo quality stands out from the crowd, but its performance and features -- while good -- don't merit its relatively high price.

Samsung NX200


The Samsung NX200 is the company's fifth NX camera but only the third body design, and represents a significant step up for the series. It's built around a completely new 20.3MP APS-C CMOS sensor and wrapped in the series' first all-metal body. The...

Good image quality with very high resolution and good detail at base ISO ; Well-designed and intuitive user interface, suitable for point-and-shoot users and enthusiasts alike ; Good customizability including the useful iFn button ; Attractive...

Longer than usual processing times after taking raw shots ; Fairly aggressive noise reduction starts blurring detail at lower ISOs and mixes with high levels of chroma noise at higher sensitivities ; No live-view feed in continuous shooting ; No access...

The Samsung NX200 is an obvious choice for anyone who wants lots of pixels in a small package. The camera is slightly let down by long buffering times in raw mode and the JPEG engine's noise treatment at high sensitivities but overall the NX200 is a...

Samsung NX200


A speedy mirrorless camera capable of grabbing sharp images and shooting in lower light, the Samsung NX200's high price is its biggest barrier.

Sharp kit lens. Fast burst shooting. Excellent high ISO performance. Crisp AMOLED rear display.

Pricey. Fixed rear display. No EVF option.

Performance and Conclusions The NX200 is a speedy little camera. It starts up and takes a shot in about 1.5 seconds, requires only 0.15 second between photos in continuous drive mode, and delivers a 0.3 second shutter lag. Its burst shooting is limited...

Samsung NX200 Review


The NX200 is the latest mirrorless compact system camera from Samsung, following last year's NX100 model. The remodelled, metal-bodied NX200 features a 20.3 megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor, high speed capture and fast auto focusing, ISO range of...

Where the NX100 was aimed squarely at the compact camera owner wanting to upgrade to something more capable, the more serious and sober NX200 is appealing to the more experienced photographer looking for a more compact alternative to a DSLR, whilst not...

Samsung NX200


Taking a more serious approach to the compact system camera, the Samsung NX200 raises resolution to 20.3-megapixels, adds Full HD video recording, and improved autofocus speed. Most of the new lenses feature a unique i-Function button that the company...

It's a good thing the design of the NX200 isn't the only thing Samsung changed. While we genuinely liked the looks of the stylish previous model, the NX100, we had issues with its JPEG image quality when shooting at high ISOs. The all-black, 20.3MP...

Samsung NX200 20.3MP ILC Camera


Samsung is one of the world's foremost electronics manufacturers with products ranging from drill ships, construction equipment to home appliances. Being involved in the computer industry, I would say that they are most well known for their TVs and...

APS-C large sized sensor ; Good auto focus and manual focus ; Very good noise reduction for a 20MP sensor ; Great resolution from the JPEG engine ; Good OIS ; Great feature set including, filters, frames, panorama and more ; Auto exposure bracketing...

No built-in flash ; Face detection not the greatest ; Clips to white fairly quickly, detail not recoverable in RAW ; Uses a Samsung proprietary NX lens mount ; No connector for external microphone ; No external viewfinder option ; Included Kit lens...

A couple of years ago, I never would have recommended a Samsung camera to a person who was serious about photography, but things have changed. The NX200 is proof that Samsung is getting serious about photography and they have really stepped up their...

Samsung NX200


Samsung has its work cut out for attempting to take a slice of the compact system camera market. Best known for its value for money point and shoot compacts, it lacks the pedigree of competitors like Sony, Canon, Nikon, Olympus and, to a lesser degree...

20.3 Megapixel APS-C sensor., 7fps burst shooting., 1080p30 movie recording., Full manual exposure control in movie modes., iFn lens button

Very sluggish buffer write times., Fixed screen and no EVF accessory., Poor use of physical controls., Poor high ISO noise performance

Samsung NX200 Compact System Camera


For anybody other than a casual home photographer there usually comes a time when you're ready to upgrade your point and shoot camera to something "more". This is usually when you hit up the local electronics store and start browsing the extensive...

Great image quality ; High ISO (12800) makes for great low-light shooting without a flash ; HD 1080p video recording with stereo sound ; Included pop-up flash module ; i-Function button on the lens is a great convenience feature
