Samsung NX210

The Good i-Function lens system; Image quality; Built-in Wi-Fi; Low-light performance.

The Bad Slightly disappointing video performance; A touch expensive.

The Bottom Line The Samsung NX210 is an extremely capable, versatile and easy to use camera. Samsung's interchangeable lens system is one of the best and the inclusion of Wi-Fi is a boon, but an underwhelming performance in the video test dents its appeal, while other system cameras have a wider choice of lenses.

Samsung NX210

Mirrorless compacts with swappable lenses are the hot trend in cameras right now. They offer the best of both worlds -- the smaller body of a compact coupled with the versatility of a dSLR. Samsung knows that as well as anyone, which is why it's refreshing its line-up every few months.

The NX210 comes hot on the heels of the NX200, which made its CNET UK bow six months back. Much of the spec is the same, but with the addition of built-in Wi-Fi, it's now smarter and more capable than ever.

The Samsung NX210 can be bought online with an 18-55mm lens from around £640.
