Samsung GX-20 review

 

Feature-packed it might be, but its hefty price-tag means the GX-20 will have to pull something special out of its hat to wow us…

The performance doesn’t quite justify the price, but this is still a rock-solid camera with great features

Samsung GX10 DSLR camera

 

Samsung's entry in to the DSLR marketplace came by rebadging Pentax DSLRs and allows the company to build a corner in the market from which it can attempt to expand its market share. Samsung threw money at building its compact model market share and it...

Image quality, handling, easy to use, build, price, access to massive Pentax system of accessories and lenses

Sensor cleaning system, propensity to underexpose,

A competent and well-specified DSLR supported by Pentax’s massive system of accessories and lenses provides great results and super build and should be high on the list of those wanting an advanced comprehensively specified DSLR on a budget.

Samsung GX-20 review

 

Is this tempting Digital SLR worth choosing over the competition?

Strong colours ; Easy to use ; Robust build ; Impressive image quality

Dodgy Lens kit ; Limited feature set ; Bulky

The tweaks and reworked menus can’t hide the fact that the GX20 is basically the same as the Pentax K20D. But the K20D benefits from the Pentax brand cachet and has a couple of useful features missing here, which leaves the GX20 in a kind of no-man’s-land

Samsung GX-20

 

Samsung's a relative newcomer to the digital SLR market, so does the GX20 measure up?

It's hard to get excited by the GX-20 for two reasons. First, the definitio is average despite those 14 million pixels. Second, the Pentax K20D is better and much the same price

Samsung GX20 Review

 

The Korean electronics giant is getting serious about its aspirations in the DSLR market and its latest model boasts a brand new 14.6-megapixel CMOS sensor, Live View and loads more desirable features

Rugged body, impressive quality Raw images, lots of direct-access buttons and switches

JPEGs straight from camera have cyan skies and yellow-green cast, slow AF in Live View

I found that JPEGs and Raws needed some manipulation to bring out the best in them. This was especially true with JPEGs which came out with a colour cast.

The 14.6-megapixel Samsung GX-20 digital SLR is the result of a partnership between camera specialist Pentax and electronics giant Samsung that delivers impressive results.

Samsung GX20 review

 

Matt Grayson takes a look at the Samsung GX20 flagship DSLR from the largest electronics company in the world.

Compatible with Pentax lenses; Good noise control; Good portrait results; Nice build quality; Camera based image stabiliser; Dust alert feature

Two extra options on the dial are taking the fun away

Samsung GX-20 DSLR: Review

 

Samsung steps up the game, with the powerful 14.6megapixel GX-20

Great layout and design ; TAv aperture and sensitivity priority mode ; Weather sealed body

Not hugely different to the GX-10 ; Live View limitations

If the Samsung GX-10 grabbed your attention, then the GX-20 is much the same, but with a beefy injection of megapixel power. There aren't many fundamental differences beyond this, so GX-10 users may not see a strong enough reason to pay out for the...

Samsung GX-20 product review teaser

 

The Samsung GX-20 offers 14-million-pixel resolution and full weather sealing at a low price, but is it the bargain we've all been waiting for?
