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.
