Samsung NX20

 

Samsung's NX series has been technological from the get-go, but the latest NX20 model - the follow up to the NX11 - adds Wi-Fi to its features list. The NX20 might be pricey, but then it has plenty on offer to keep it in fair competition against the...

Great image quality for such high-resolution, classic design, enough lenses to tae on the competition, vari-angle screen, built-in SVGA-resolution EVF

Inconsistent white balance, colours can lack punch, processing takes too long per file, burst mode "Processing" lock out

The NX20 might be pricey, but then it has plenty on offer to keep it in fair competition against the likes of the Sony NEX-7 or Olympus OM-D.

Samsung NX20 review

 

Samsung's top-end CSC gets Wi-Fi

Great quality at high ISOs ; Good build ; Ergonomic ; Articulated AMOLED screen ; Wi-Fi and GPS

Reflective screen and EVF ; Animations slow down changing modes ; Not compatible with all Android devices ; Slow AF in video recording

In a crowded marketplace of similarly specified mirrorless compact system cameras, it can be difficult for one manufacturer's offering to stand out from the crowd. Samsung in is an enviable position as an electronics company, because there is so much...

Samsung NX20 review

 

Physically, the NX20 is still similar to the NX10 that was first introduced two years ago, and the NX11 that we saw last year, albeit with some slight tweaks to the contours and button placements. It's a comfortable camera to hold and shoot with,...

Samsung's NX20 interchangeable lens camera is smaller than a digital SLR, but it offers a similar level of functionality. It has built-in features such as an EVF and a flash, so that you don't have to go hunting for accessories, but most importantly,...

The Samsung NX20 can take an impressive eight pictures a second in its high-speed capture mode - great for fast-moving action. But how do the rest of this camera\'s abilities measure up against the competition? Read our full review to see what our...

Samsung NX20 review

 

If detail resolution is your 'thing', and you like smaller cameras, the Samsung NX20 is very hard to beat. It certainly has better detail-recording ability than any compact system camera we've tested so far, and it beats the vast majority of DSLRs,...

Samsung NX20

 

This is a small DSLR unit ideal for the amateur who enjoys their photography or for someone coming on from a Digital Camera wanting to improve. The most ‘different' thing for the latter group is that there is a viewfinder available.

It is 12x8.5x12.5cm the last figure with the 18 to 55lens fitted and fully in, fully out it extends another 3cm. It weights 618grams without the supplied neck strap. The right side has a flip door behind which are micro USB and micro HDMI connections....
