I've been following all the Nikon models D90 / D3000 / D3100 and the Canon Rebel line as well as all the Micro Four-Thirds cameras and the Sony NEX-3/5. I've read reviews and comments and looked at all the sample images.
I've considered the availability (and reviews) of lenses, weight/size of camera, image quality and video.
The NEX-5, Olympus PL2, Nikon D3100 and the Samsung NX10/NX11/NX100 were all on my short list. I finally settled on the NX10.
The NX10 :
Great image quality, although not quite the ISO range as some other cameras.
Very good built-in flash
Small and light with a solid construction
Very easy user-interface
large sensor size (APS-C , better than all Micro Four-Thirds)
Video is not 1024p (only 720p)
Very few lenses still (the ones that they do have are great though, and more are coming)
Incorrect Assumptions: (about the NX10)
It DOES support an optional external GPS
It DOES support the iFunction lenses (after a firmware upgrade).
Based on the fact that I could really not see the difference between the NX10 and NX11 and the low cost of the NX10 at the moment, I decided to buy an NX10. So far both I and another person (with a Nikon D90) took photos of the same event and had opportunity to compare... and I am pleased to say my photos were a lot better looking (with no post-processing done to either).
I love the Samsung Pancake 20mm lens (with iFunction) and is a good addition to the standard (non-iFunction) IOS lens that this shipped with.
The camera feels great ( i have large hands), is easy to use, and the menu system works well.
Pictures in automatic (smart) mode are sharp, although in lower light conditions it will tend to lower the shutter speed before increasing iso.
Be sure to update the latest firmware available from samsung website.
Some settings in menu are only available for particular shooting conditions, for example if you want to put it in raw mode, then be sure to set the dial to Apature first. In a way this makes sense because raw is only available when not using the smart mode, such as apature priority, but it can be an intial stumbling block when first setting the camera up - once you understand this premise then the rest is very smooth sailing.
I have not tried video yet, however from what i have read, like many cameras with video built in, the quality is excelent when camera movement is not needed, but falls apart for action shots in the artifacts introduced. Also there is no external microphone jack so sound quality will be sub-par. If video is important, then the panasonic G series would be a better choice, but better yet would be a dedicated video camera.
The senseor is 50% large in size than the panasonic g-series with 20% additional pixels. What that means is that there is 30% more area of the on each pixel for bringing in light, and thus more headroom for improvement. I am sure over the months Samsung will tweak their alogrithms to take better advantage of this.
On time is excelent, as well as processing time; of course raw is going to take a bit longer.
Be sure to get yourself a good quality card for the camera.Read more ›
It just took me less than 30 minutes at the shop to decide that this is the right camera for me and let me explain why. Like i said, first of all, i really like the size of this camera, it's not as small as some of the compact point and shoot camera, but it's not as big as the DSLR either. That makes it very easy to tug this small camera into a normal bag without ever needing to carry another separate bag just for DSLR. And next, besides the size, this camera can actually produce pretty good pictures! Yes! with available light at the shop, i took a couple of pics and they all look pretty sharp and amazing! By the way, the unit i tested was using the 35mm f2 pancake lens, i am not sure how the performance will be using the normal kit lens but using the supplied 35mm f2 pancake lens, this camera can really produce pretty neat images! So i am not really going to talk a lot more about other stuff because i think these two main points should be the real reason why you should get this camera, great performance at small size, you won't even feel burden with carrying it around unlike the big chunky DSLR camera.
Now, on the negative side, the HD video claimed by the camera, uhmm...well the performance isn't really that great. There's no AF on the video so most of the time, when my subject move either nearer or further away from me, the video gets kinda blur. And the other cons i can think about is the lack of proper flash like what we get from DSLR.Read more ›
