The Samsung NX210's raw photos and the shooting experience it provides distinguish it from interchangeable-lens competitors, but it's slower than it should be and JPEG photos don't match the rest of the field.

The Samsung NX 210s raw photos and -- shooting experience provides. Distinguish it from interchangeable lens competitors. But it's slower than it should be and JPEG photos don't match the rest of field. The camera has essentially the same body is the NX 200 solidly built and larger than most competitors but that's what helps make it more comfortable to grip. For those unfamiliar with Samsung's -- function system consists of a button on the -- which invokes shootings -- such as iso sensitivity or shutter speed. He then it just them using the manual focus. The -- function system distinguishes the NX cameras from other dial seasonally that adds to the shooting experience rather than attracting. The alternative adjustment system is Samsung's Smart panel interactive control panel interface but -- pull up function but. It CDU's. But I miss the type of customization child Panasonic's cameras offer of the interface as well as the capability to -- -- -- As a host of Samsung's 2012 cameras.

Any Indian next to -- neutral images come out recently saturated red -- -- look good and it meters consistently.

In low light there's some clipping in the shadows and the color -- but otherwise it's acceptable. As with most amoled displays the -- bright contrast and it remains officially visible in direct sunlight so the absence of the viewfinder is not much a problem. -- like the NX 210 I enjoy shooting. But I think they're too many confusing choices for automatic operation in the JPEG quality needs to be better. -- the speed of the auto focus never really got my way it should feel more responsive for the money.
