Very competitive system from Samsung. They just need to work on buffer write speeds. I am inclined towards selling my D300s + lenses to get to a lighter and smaller system. Alas Nikon will never release a camera like NX (or other mirrorless models) so why bother...move on..

Whatever we Nikon/Canon fans say, this year has been Sony's year. They are slow in delivering lenses but boy, the new product(camera) philosophy has been spot on.

Doesn't XZ-2 beat this one? It may not be a pocket size but still that lens on S110 is very slow.

techmine: Poor man's equivalent of legendary Nikkor 70-200 f2.8?

I love Tamron's VC. I have a much cheaper 70-300mm and absolutely love it. I have heard only best things about nikkor 70-200mm, so can't say anything bad about it but price wise it is just too much. Will definitely look for the reviews. This might well be my next lens.

Sorry Samsung get ready to be sued by Apple because the color of the camera is white and the font of the brand name closely resembles that of Apple :-) sorry to bring it up but I am tired of listening that Samsung is a big copy cat.

Nice looking camera/device.

I am actually in the market for a superzoom. Most likely it's going to be Panasonic fz200. Its a camera cut above the rest with constant f2.0 aperture. That feature alone is enough for me.

Mssimo: Cameras like the G5 keep looking better and better. Soon DSLRs will be for semi and PRO only.

I totally agree. The mirrorless and enthusiast p&s cameras are getting better and better. They are overcoming their shortcomings very fast. On the other hand DSLRs are struggling to up the ante. Right now, bigger sensor is the only thing abuzz.

techmine: Wasn't NX20 more appropriate camera to review. This review is just the extension of NX200. NX20 review could have given more information about Samsung's DSLR look alike particularly with respect to the viewfinder, grip and speed.

Thanks for the info. Can't live with a slow camera. Have a D300s and it take 7fps with almost no buffer issue. Can't imagine a life with 1fp5s :-) I would have bought N210 if it had a viewfinder accessory.

Most people think it's a copy cover camera. I don't find a camera with 20x zoom on a 1/2 inch sensor with PASM modes in the market(Fuji has one). Also most people don't know how good is the EXR sensor on these fujis. Now no GPS? I agree that's a bit of a step backward. With WiFi everywhere, building a camera to upload pics to social sites is cool too.

BoostedBB6: Could it not be said any alteration to a photo (regardless of the effect) is altering the story told by the photograph?

What I find with "photographers" these days is there is no time taken to compose a good shot or think about the shot they want...just hold the shutter and hope you get something you can PS till it looks good.....film is a great way to learn to shoot. This is where I started and it truly gives you a much better appreciation for photography and catching that amazing shot the first time.

To each there own, but I love the fact that there are more people taking more pictures...history captured in a picture IMO. Love it!

Well said.people call Photoshop tricks as darkroom developing for digital world. And for Instagram - stupid? Double standards.

My X10 serves me well as compact camera. I am looking forward to FZ200.

In reply to:

CameraLabTester: Nikon please go back to the drawing board... like you should have, with your failed 1 series...

The Canon IXUS 100 IS (SD 780 IS) just blasts this P310 into oblivion. And to think the Canon uses the same size sensor and came out 3 years ago, in 2009!

It also has an OPTICAL VIEWFINDER. One of the smallest P&S to have one!

Nope. I'll buy another second hand Canon IXUS 100 IS from eBay for the exorbitant amount of... (trumpets)... $35

.

Clearly you haven't used Nikon P3xx cameras.while others have pointed out how wide and bright this lens is, the macro and IS in these Nikons are amongt the best I have ever seen. These cameras lie at the tipping point where enthusiasts P&S cameras take over like S95 and LX5 and X10. This camera takes great Macro, food, pet shots.
