Samsung NX10 Review
Top of camera controls
Like the rest of its design, the top of the camera is distinctly entry-level-DSLR-like, with little room for surprises. So there's a mode dial with a mixture of scene modes and the P, A, S and M modes for those photographers who want to choose the level of automation they have to deal with. There's also shutter button surrounded by an on/off switch and a well-placed control dial for adjusting various camera settings.
On the far right corner of the camera are the slightly less accessible 'green' and drive mode buttons. It can be a bit of a stretch to reach them but it's unlikely that you'll want to press either of them with the camera to your eye, so arguably it isn't a serious problem.
Smart Auto Mode
The scenes it can choose from are:
|P|| Programmed Auto
The Program function automatically selects shutter speed and aperture based on the camera's metered value. It features program shift, allowing you to adjust the shutter-speed/aperture pairing to your chosen combination (while maintaining the same overall exposure):
So if program mode gave you a pairing of 1/100th of a second and F4.0, nudging the command dial to the left would give you F4.5 and 1/80th of a second, whereas nudging it to the right would give F3.5 and 1/125th of a second.
|A||Aperture Priority Auto
In this mode you select the aperture and the camera will calculate the shutter speed for the exposure (depending on metered value; metering mode, ISO). Aperture is displayed on the display, turning the dial selects different apertures. A half-press of the shutter release causes the camera's exposure system to calculate the shutter speed, if it's outside of the cameras exposure range the chosen aperture is shown in yellow.
|S||Shutter Priority Auto
In this mode you select the shutter speed and the camera will calculate the correct aperture for the exposure (depending on metered value; metering mode, ISO). Shutter speed is displayed on the display, turn the dial to select different shutter speeds. A half-press of the shutter release causes the camera's exposure system to calculate the aperture. If this requires an aperture wider that the camera can achieve, the shutter speed will be shown in yellow.
Full Manual Exposure
The 'fader' option performs a quick fade from or to black at the beginning or end of your clip (or both).
Buttons / Switches
Options / description
Used to change settings and navigate menus, and to select shutter speed in M mode. The dial is also used for scrolling through images in playback mode.
• Continuous drive
• Burst (1472x976 at 30fps)
• Self-timer (2-30 seconds in 1 second increments)
• Exposure bracketing (takes 3 shots, up to +/- 3EV in 0.3 or 0.5 EV steps, set in main menu)
• WB bracketing (makes 3 images, choice of 3 magnitudes in either A-B or G-M axis)
• Picture Wizard bracketing (makes 3 images with your 3 chosen parameter presets)
Lens barrel controls
On the side of the NX10's kit zoom (the 18-55mm) is the OIS on/off switch and a MF/AF switch. Because it offers a physical MF/AF switch, it is not possible to enter manual focus mode through the camera's menu. OIS mode is controlled via the camera's function menu.
The 35mm F2 lens has no OIS and has no external switches (the MF/AF option is controlled from the camera body).
