Review: Samsung NX210


While the NX210 is compelling enough as a picture-taking machine, an extra selling point for general consumers is the camera's capabilities as a picture-sharing machine....

Solidly built metal casing. Design is both aesthetically pleasing and very comfortable to shoot with. The 18-55mm kit lens is optically stabilized for better images at slower shutter speeds. In manual focus mode, LED display automatically zooms to the...

No built-in flash. No flash control button, so you’ve got to use the function button and then scroll to the flash icon to change or adjust the flash output. Slow RAW processing. The Wi-Fi functionality would benefit from a touchscreen. Android apps...

Samsung NX210


The Samsung NX210 is, apart from the addition of a Wi-Fi mode, as good as identical to its predecessor Samsung NX200. In this article we have therefore concentrated on the new features of the camera but also included our usual studio test scene....

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 (but improved over NX200) ; 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...

The Samsung NX210 offers you the high pixel-count and compact dimensions of the NX200 and adds WiFi-connectivity to the mix. The NX210 is slightly let down by long buffering times in raw mode and the JPEG engine's noise treatment at high sensitivities...

Samsung NX210 (with 18-55mm lens) review


Though it uses the same sturdy, well-designed body as the NX200 , and boasts a broad set of sharing and connectivity options, the Samsung NX210's performance and JPEG photo quality don't seem to match its predecessor's.

With excellent raw photos for a sub-$1,000 model, a nicely designed user interface, and a broad set of sharing features, the Samsung NX210 is a solid option for enthusiast photographers.

Its autofocus is a bit slow for the price and the JPEG processing could use some work.

The Samsung NX210's raw photos and the shooting experience it provides distinguish it from competitors, but it's slower than it should be and JPEG photos don't match the rest of the field.

Samsung NX210 Preview


The NX System, from Samsung, is a compact line of interchangeable lens cameras designed to work with all nine NX-series lens. This year, the big news is "In-Built Wifi." This means, you'll not only be taking high resolution 20.3 megapixel still photos...

Samsung NX210 Review


The NX210 is the latest mirrorless compact system camera from Samsung, following last year's NX200 model. The metal-bodied NX210 features a 20.3 megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor, high speed capture and fast auto focusing, ISO range of 100-12800, 1080p HD...

The new NX210 is a very modest update of the NX200, principally adding a range of Wi-fi connectivity options to a 9-month-old camera. While we still like the NX210's excellent image quality, the compact system market has become even more crowded in the...

($899) is a compact mirrorless interchangeable lens camera -- err, Smart Camera. Samsung has given the "Smart Camera" moniker to all of their Wi-Fi equipped cameras this year, and their implementation of this feature is one of the best I've seen. In...

Very good image quality ; Compact, well-designed, solidly built body ; Gorgeous 3-inch AMOLED display ; Excellent Wi-Fi implementation ; Attractive, easy-to-use interface with help screens for every option ; Full manual exposure controls, plus white...

Burst mode woes: camera locked up while saving to memory card, display lags behind the action, small amount of buffer memory ; OLED display can be difficult to see outdoors ; A bit pricey ; Camera's small size becomes moot when a zoom lens is attached...

Overall, I really enjoyed my time with the Samsung NX210. The healthy set of auto and manual controls, beautiful OLED display and UI combination, good photo quality, and best-in-class Wi-Fi features make the NX210 well worth looking at -- though it's a...

Samsung NX210


Announced alongside the NX1000 and NX20, the NX210 is a direct replacement to the NX200 and actually adds very little. It boasts the same 20.3 megapixel sensor as its predecessor and essentially the same styling. Although not an upgrade, the sensor is...

The Samsung NX210 is the successor to the NX200, bring new Wi-Fi connectivity

Metal body construction ; Large image sensor ; Crisp AMOLED screen

No built-in stabiliser ; No built-in viewfinder ; Too similar to the NX1000

Samsung NX210


Samsung's already proven its calibre in the compact system camera market with the latest 20.3-megapixel NX20 and NX1000 models. The NX210 is an impressive compact system camera that relies on its mighty 20.3-megapixel APS-C sensor to deliver the goods....

Great image quality for such high resolution, enough lenses to compete against the competition, quality construction

Pricey, doesn’t offer much beyond budget NX1000 model, mis-focusing in low light when using AF-assist lamp, not possible to add a viewfinder, burst mode processing "lock out”

The NX210 is an impressive compact system camera that relies on its mighty 20.3-megapixel APS-C sensor to deliver the goods. And deliver it does: images are not only large, but also detailed, in particular at the low-mid ISO settings.

Samsung NX210 review


Is integrated Wi-Fi enough to boost interest in Samsung CSCs?

Nice images ; Stylish ; Screen good in bright sunlight ; Digital level

Remote viewfinder lacks functionality ; Screen only 614k dots ; No in-built flash ; Limited lens range

Buying GuideBest camera accessories Although it was one of the first camera manufacturers to go mirrorless, Samsung hasn't quite seen the same success as its rivals in the compact system camera field.
