Samsung NX30 Review

 

As the compact camera market continues to decline, Samsung has focused its efforts on mirrorless cameras, and recent models such as the NX300 show that the Company's products are quite competitive. Samsung's latest flagship mirrorless - the NX30 - is...

High resolution 20 megapixel APS-C sensor Good image quality, especially with a bit of Raw processing Quick hybrid AF system rarely falters in good or moderate light High resolution built-in EVF turns on automatically via eye sensor Flip-out LCD...

Screen and EVF prone to lag in low light Auto ISO limited to 3200 maximum Default noise reduction leaves noise behind and drains color from scene On/off switch easily bumped into On position One proper command dial not as useful as twin dial setup...

What kind of world does the Samsung NX30 live in? It's a DSLR-style mirrorless camera with a fully articulated touch screen, 1080/60p video and loads of connectivity. Based on specs alone it's a potentially good entry-to-mid level DSLR competitor, or a...

Samsung NX30 Review

 

Very good image quality at low to moderately high ISOs; Blazing fast single-shot autofocus; Fast 9fps burst with RAW and JPEG files; Built-in Wi-Fi with NFC; Good build quality; Tilting EVF; Articulating touchscreen monitor; Bundled with Adobe...

Dynamic range not as good as the best APS-C models; Slow buffer clearing even with fast UHS-I cards; Buffer depth with RAW files is underwhelming; Native lens selection is still fairly limited.

The Samsung NX30 is a strong contender for those looking for a relatively compact, high-performance camera at a great value. With excellent overall image quality and solid performance for all but the most extreme shooting scenarios and subjects, the...

Samsung NX30 review

 

The Samsung NX30 is the latest edition to the company's steadily evolving line of compact system cameras, assuming top-dog position and unseating the visually comparable NX20. The Samsung NX30 marks a significant upgrade for the upper-end of Samsung's...

Re-thought body lay-out, flip-up viewfinder and vibrant rear LCD, versatile Wi-Fi features, i-Function lens system

Plasticky build, slight softening towards frame edges with kit lens, should be available with powered lens kit bundle, wind noise on movies

The Samsung NX30 marks a significant upgrade for the upper-end of Samsung’s mirrorless line-up, and is among the most tempting system cameras we’ve yet tested. Once again the i-Function lens is a highlight and one we’d like to see other manufacturers...

Samsung NX30 review

 

Fantastic all-rounder with lots of added extras

Articulating touchscreen ; Great handling ; Tilting EVF

Easy to accidentally set focus point ; Limited number of lenses ; Buttons not customisable

Ratings in depth Camera reviews Best mirrorless CSC Best camera Although Samsung was one of the first manufacturers to launch a compact system camera to the market, back in 2010 with the NX10, it's fair to say that the NX range has failed to capture...

Samsung NX30 review

 

A solid all-rounder with exceptional ergonomics

Samsung claims a burst speed of 9fps, and although we couldn't quite achieve that in our tests, 8.4fps is still impressively fast. It lasted for 27 JPEGs before slowing to 2.7fps. Continuous RAW shooting started at 7.7fps and slowed after 12 shots to...

The Samsung NX30 has a 20.3 MP APS-C CMOS sensor, offers a fast 1/8000 sec shutter speed and a 9 frame per second (FPS) shooting rate. It sports a very handy and unique tiltable electronic viewfinder plus a high res 3-inch Super AMOLED swivel and...

Samsung's NX30 looks and handles like a proper DSLR, but weights significantly less.
