Samsung NX10: first test shots

Samsung's NX10 interchangeable camera boasts an APS-C sensor

Samsung's NX10 will compete against the likes of the Olympus Pen, Panasonic GF1 and Ricoh GXR cameras, which occupy the space between advanced compact cameras and traditional digital SLRs. The NX10 relies on an APS-C sized sensor (bigger than the Micro Four Thirds system favoured by Olympus and Panasonic, and the same size as the Ricoh GXR with A12 GR Lens).

The Samsung NX10 has a 14-megapixel sensor and uses the NX lens mount system, but a converter will be available for K-mount lenses. It has a 3in AMOLED screen, but also features a built-in electronic viewfinder (EVF) and flash. It's this complete feature-set, as well as a supremely easy to use menu system, full manual control as well as intelligent auto mode, that should make this camera one of the most popular in its category. Its low price of $899 -- with a 30mm pancake lens, mind you -- should help matters, too.

What follows is a selection of images taken with the NX10 while on a visit to Taronga Zoo, organised by Samsung. None of the pictures have been altered except for some cropping and rotating due to dodgy tripods and uneven ground.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
