The NX200 has much sleeker lines than its predecessor, plus a new kit lens that's less compact but feels much nicer to operate. This model also lacks a built-in flash; instead, it comes with an add-on flash that uses the hot shoe and folds down.

The mode dial offers the usual operations--manual, semimanual, automatic, and scene exposures, plus a movie mode, panorama and Magic, with frames and special effects.

It's worth pointing out that Samsung does a very nice job on its interface graphics. These are the special effects.

This is the limited control panel you get in the Magic modes.

This is the main Smart Panel. It's organized and attractive, but I wish you could customize it to show only a selected group of options for faster navigation.
