With its mix of snapshot and DSLR-type controls, the Smart Camera NX30 is a device that is easy to get to grips with and will deliver great-looking shots with plenty of color and contrast straight out of the camera. While there is nothing here really...

Like the NX300, we can enthusiastically recommend the NX30 – it's a high-quality CSC that delivers fine results. No question, it's a bit on the expensive side but one mitigating factor is the inclusion of a full copy of Lightroom 5.0 editing software...

The NX30 combines some neat innovations, an outstanding feature set and smart design to very good effect. The build quality and performance at high ISO is slightly disappointing, but neither should put you off seriously considering the NX30. It's a seriously good camera we're happy to recommend.
