Manufacturer description: Customized for the NX System, the brand-new, professional-grade, 20.3MP APS-C CMOS Sensor produces images that rival those of any premium DSLR. Each individual pixel has a large sensor area and receives more light, guaranteeing low noise levels, high dynamic range and accurate color differentiation. The higher sensitivity allows you to shoot during low-light situations without graininess or other noise. The new sensor also provides Full HD video output capabilities.

Our review

The Samsung NX210 offers you the high pixel count and compact dimensions of the NX200 and adds Wi-Fi connectivity to the mix. The NX210 is slightly let down by long buffering times in raw mode and the JPEG engine's noise treatment at high sensitivities, but overall it is a powerful photographic tool with a good feature set for its class and enjoyable to use.

Good for: Photographers who want to capture a lot of low ISO detail in a compact package, anyone who wants to share/transfer images on the go

Not so good for: High-ISO photography in JPEG mode, action photography
