Samsung NX20 Review
It's not only the Wi-Fi functionality that makes the NX20 stand out in the CSC market. i-Fn lens compatibility is unique to Samsung and as mentioned earlier it may not appeal to all users, but it does make for an intuitive way of changing the cameras most commonly used settings. As the old saying goes, you'll either love it or hate it.
Detail and sharpness in our test images was very good and the handling can't be criticised. Buttons including the menu button are much better located to the right of the screen rather than at the top left of the body. We'd say the AF performance is an improvement on its forerunner, however we'd still prefer to experience less hunting in low-light conditions. Adding to this, we'd also like the option of positioning the AF point right into the corners of the frame.
The real question mark with the NX20 lies with its price and performance - it's very expensive and is a bit on the sluggish side when working quickly. Yes it's well made and feels like it'll last for a very long time but you could make a significant saving if you opt for an entry-level D-SLR or D-SLT instead. If a D-SLR really isn't for you but you'd like a smaller CSC that looks much like one, the NX20 is worth taking a look at.
