Samsung NX10

Big sensor hybrid to worry the Micro Four Thirds faithful

The NX10 offers 720p HD video recording at 30fps in H264 or MP4. Unfortunately, Samsung has not provided a direct-access video button or any option for an external microphone to supplement the mono-only sound of its small internal microphone. Still, the camera has a good selection of video preferences letting you use either Program or Aperture Mode and giving you a choice of single AF (SAF), continuous AF (CAF) or Manual Focus.

Five more lenses promised later this year will expand the fledgling NX product range

It also sports unusual features like a pause/restart option and the ability to introduce transition-fading effects. While the image quality of the videos is generally good there is some rolling shutter effect and a slight delay in the shutter response when recording starts.

Verdict

RH Recommended Medal

Overall, having criticised Samsung for not delivering cameras of substance in the past, I was surprised by the outstanding build and image quality of the company's latest new-concept release. While Olympus and Panasonic might have set a market standard for mirrorless cameras with their Micro Four Thirds models, Samsung has hit the nail on the head by increasing the sensor size of its first interchangeable lens hybrid, leaving scope for some brilliant developments. Free from the knotty mirror return mechanism of a DSLR, yet with a decent-sized sensor and an attractive price, the NX10 is definitely a winner. ®
