This is a small DSLR unit ideal for the amateur who enjoys their photography or for someone coming on from a Digital Camera wanting to improve. The most ‘different’ thing for the latter group is that there is a viewfinder...

For general-purpose photography, the NX20 is a very good camera. It offers all of the image quality and most of the features of a full-sized DSLR, and both handling and build quality are excellent. While its overall performance could be a bit faster,...

Overall, the Samsung NX20 is an excellent camera. Still quality is superb and movies are very good. It's a good choice for both aim-and-forgetters and those who tweak every image to the nth degrees. However, avoid the high-speed burst mode or you may...

The NX20 provides DSLR-like image quality, creative flexibility, and lens interchangeability without giving up any of the popular point and shoot features and ease of use of smaller cameras. The NX20 was designed for entry level ILC users, but novices...

The Samsung NX20 holds its own against the competition and even exceeds other mirrorless interchangeable-lens models thanks to its well-implemented Wi-Fi features. A pleasure to shoot with, the NX20 has a well-rounded feature set that will appeal to...

Samsung's NX20 is a compact interchangeable lens camera that is slightly larger than most other EVIL (Electronic Viewfinder Interchangeable Lens) cameras on the market today. It still features a standard dSLR shape, but in a much more manageable size....

With other APS-C based Compact System Cameras (CSCs) from a company that also starts with "S" getting most of the press these days, it's sometimes easy to overlook Samsung and its line of NX models. This should start to change. The 20.3MP...

At first glance you might think this chunky CSC is actually an entry-level DSLR, especially as the Samsung NX20 also crams a stonking 20.3MP into its body....

Samsung's NX20 interchangeable lens camera is smaller than a digital SLR, but it offers a similar level of functionality. It has built-in features such as an EVF and a flash, so that you don't have to go hunting for accessories, but most importantly,...

Overall, the Samsung NX20 isn't the best camera for recording video. The camera's results in our performance tests were mostly sub-par, although we were impressed with the camera's ability to capture motion cleanly. We also need to give Samsung...

The Samsung NX20 is quite an interesting proposition, since it delivers very good quality images, especially at high ISOs. The combination of Wi-Fi connectivity with the ability to share images direct from the camera is currently unique to Samsung. Since...

The Samsung NX20 is a well-rounded interchangeable lens compact for advanced users. It's pleasant to use and delivers great picture quality in photo and video modes. The NX20's user-friendly design and handling (iFn, viewfinder, swivel screen, etc.) are...

While still only really a few years old, competition within the compact system camera market has already grown pretty fierce. As a result manufacturers have had to work ever harder to stay ahead of the competition and capture the imagination of...

The NX20's body immediately makes you think it's a mid-range camera. The hard, textured materials are solid and sturdy, but they don't exude class or luxury by any means. At 4.8 inches wide and 3.5 inches tall, it's considerably larger than the Sony...

The NX20 has come a long way from the NX10 and NX11. When the NX11 was announced there wasn't a huge amount to get excited about when comparing it to the NX10. The NX20 offers more innovative features to make it an attractive proposition. Slightly...

If detail resolution is your thing, and you like smaller cameras, the Samsung NX20 is very hard to beat. It certainly has better detail-recording ability than any compact system camera weve tested so far, and it beats the vast majority of DSLRs,...
