Samsung Nx10

The Samsung NX10 is light on the shoulders but pretty heavy in the features department.

MOST photographers would agree that DSLR cameras take better pictures than their compact brethren but unfortunately portability is not a DSLR strong point.

After lugging one around during a holiday, you would probably need another holiday to recover from the inevitable sore shoulder, especially if you have a heavy model.

This is where Samsung intends to step in with its 14.6-megapixel Samsung NX10.

It does away with the conventional mirror technology that is a staple of DSLRs to produce a smaller, slimmer and lighter body.

But don't be fooled by its petite size, this camera can easily rival a full-fledged DSLR when it comes to specifications, which we will discuss in length later.

Moving on, the camera supports the proprietary NX-mount lens system and dedicated flashguns.

To date, Samsung has unveiled three different lenses - namely the 18-55mm OIS, 50-200mm OIS and 30mm pancake lens. "OIS" denotes built-in stabilisation technology.

For the purpose of this review, Samsung was nice enough to loan us a unit with the 18-55mm lens.
