I have a Samsung NX300 with a number of lenses which I am very pleased with except for one thing which is the lack of an electronic view finder for use in bright sunlight and so when the NX20 became available at a reduced price I bought it as a second body and I am very pleased with it. The overall picture quality is very similar to the NX300 the major difference being the focusing speed (as the NX300 has dual focusing systems) and if you have it on the 8 frames per second mode the buffer can fill up quite quickly and you have to wait a few seconds while it processes and then empties the buffer, but I didn't buy it for sports use so it doesn't really worry me. The HD video quality is also excellent and the articulated screen is very useful. If you have an Android mobile device you can download an app which allows you to wirelessly connect to the camera, display the screen on your mobile device and use it as a remote shutter release which is fantastic.

In summary, the NX20 is - at it's new price - is excellent value for money, can produce pictures and video of a similar quality as a camera nearly twice the price, has great features and is much easier to carry round than a full sized DLSR which means you are more likely to take it with you and so be able to take pictures.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I've been using the NX10 for about 2 years, and loved almost everything about it. With firmware updates it matched the later nx11 in everything. Just wish it had a tilting screen.

That, and more has been added to the nx20. The amoled screen is bigger than the earlier camera and can swing out 180 degrees and rotate 180 up and 90 degrees down. The eye-level view finder is far better than the nx10s, though I seem to be having some minor trouble with the diopter adjuster - it keeps getting knocked, which never happened on the nx10.

Handling is fantastic. At first it felt a bit awkward, but I soon got used to the slightly different control positions (caused by the larger screen.) The extra wheel around the +control is a superb addition. This makes moving through the images (even when magnified) faster, and gives you a choice of how to change setting such as the aperture in manual (either the wheel or the iFn.)

If you're taking landscape or architectural photos, the built in level will come in handy. Accessed by pressing the display button (no longer a separate button, but up on the + control) this shows both horizontal and vertical alignment. It's a bit sensitive, but still useful to have. Add in the option to have grid lines (2x2 and 3x3 plus diagonal) and converging verticals should be a thing of the past - unless that's what you want.

WiFi. For a lot of people, this may be an important selling point. If you're one of those who always post on facebook or similar, then you can post you pictures straight to one of several sites. BUT, this only works with jpgs (which makes sense.) On the other hand, while you can also email pictures, you're still limited to jpgs.

I bought this camera a few months ago when it was on sale here for a bit less than £400- some 50% off or so.
Initially I had been thinking about getting a Canon- or Nikon in that particular price range, but the huge discount seemed reason enough to get it instead of its competitors. Well not quite, but it certainly was an important aspect. It also very much helped that it had good reviews both on amazon- as well as the web.
Unfortunately I had selected Super Saver Delivery via Hermes which took more than a week. Silly me for trying to save a few pounds after buying a camera this *expensive*
However, this only made it that much more exciting to open the box when it finally arrived. My previous camera had been an old panasonic point and shoot camera- so this was definitely a big step up.
After playing around with it for a bit I soon recognised its strengths and weaknesses:

PROs:
Smaller that most DSLRs yet the same superb picture quality
mostly good autofocus
adjustable-beautiful live view AMOLED Screen
WiFi
my dad's ancient Nikon flash (SB-22) works just fine and others probably too!
a ton of options to mess around with

CONs:
Too big to always carry around
relatively few but expensive lenses to chose from
expensive OEM battery
mode changing animations are slow and cannot be disabled
the WiFi difficult to use, buggy and its options are very limited
bad auto-focus in not well lit areas
no optical viewfinder (I know, that this is the whole point of this camera but still.. at least they kept that characteristic clicking sound when you shoot a photo xD )

Most of the con's I should have been aware of from the beginning anyway but I guess I just chose to ignore them.

Samsung refer to this as a CSC - a Compact System Camera. In the US, it would probably be termed as EVIL - an Electronic Viewfinder Interchangeable Lens camera, which provides a clearer idea of what it actually is, although other descriptions may also be used. Consequently, always-on Live View is an important feature. Although designed to resemble a dSLR, there is no direct optical viewfinder but you do have the now usual 3-inch screen, which in this instance is AMOLED and folds out from the body and rotates around a horizontal axis so you can shoot at low or high angles with relative comfort and ease both in landscape and portrait orientation, and the EVF. There is a small dioptric adjustment knob at the side of the EVF to correct for individual users' vision.

The camera is sold as a unit; there is no body-only option. Were it available in that form, some may prefer the more compact 20-50mm lens offered with the non-dSLR-style bodies. Some retailers are offering it complete with the 50-200 zoom as a kit at around the same price as the standard outfit alone, which effectively provides a significant discount and a very useful additional basic outfit.

The NX range is now established and has been around for a couple of years or so. The lens range is growing slowly and an 85mm f1.4 has recently been announced (as at September 2012) currently only for the US market at around $1000 and is now on sale in the UK about £800. It is a rather bulky beast if illustrations provide an accurate impression and it is unlikely to feature in many people's kit. There is no fish-eye or extreme wide-angle, or a long telephoto zoom currently in the range - the 50-200 is the longest, but hopefully that situation will change!
