The NX100 isn’t the smallest offering currently available in the mirrorless category, but it is small enough to please most consumers. The main drawcard of the NX100 is the i-Function lens and TT has to give Samsung credit for this bold approach to photography.
While it works like it should, it is hard to make the transition to this new control scheme. To be honest most consumers will probably give up and go back to using the traditional button layout.
As for performance, the NX100 captures high quality images but only in the right conditions. The lack of onboard image stabilisation means images tend to be blurry if the subject is moving or in low light. The decision to leave this out of the NX100 is a bit baffling, especially since most consumers will be moving up to this unit from a compact.
There is also no built-in flash which further emphasises the lack of stabilisation when taking photos at night.
Overall the NX100 is a great evolution in the mirrorless camera category, but a few missing features left this from truly making a mark.
