Smart - and big on features
The Samsung NX20 puts professional quality photography in your hands. It’s a newcomer to the mirrorless NX range with a big range of features, including the new sensitive 20.3MP APS-C CMOS Sensor and 1/8000 shutter speed. Lenses are interchangeable, the Clear Swivel AMOLED Display helps you shoot from any angle, and Wi-Fi Connectivity frees you from the clutter of cables.
Reality in detail with 20.3 Megapixel APS-C Sensor
The heart of the NX20 is a new professional-grade, APS-C CMOS Sensor with an astonishing 20.3 megapixels - delivering images that rival any premium DSLR, plus full HD video output. Reality has never looked so real.
Catch that shot - at 1/8000 of a second
The NX20’s 1/8000 second shutter speed lets you capture high-speed action. It’s ideal for sport and wildlife, even automatically compensating for environmental factors such as temperature and camera direction.
Capture the moment
The NX20’s High Speed Capture lets you catch fleeting moments and fast-moving objects with ultra-high-speed Auto Focus that rivals any system camera. The NX20 can capture 8 frames per second for better continuous shooting, with shutter lag reduced to just 40ms.
Instant sharing and saving with Wi-Fi Connectivity
The NX20’s Wi-Fi connectivity lets you connect to a wireless network. You’ll never have to worry about losing a shot, running out of storage space, or bringing the right cable along. Save photos and videos to a computer or cloud service while you shoot, email them, print them wirelessly, or upload instantly to Facebook™, YouTube, or Photo Bucket.
See more. Shoot more.
The 3.0” 614k AMOLED Swivel Display lets you precisely frame images and shoot from just about any angle. Compared to the TFT-LCD found on most digital cameras, the NX20’s AMOLED display has deeper blacks and more accurate, vivid colours, giving you full visibility even in direct sunlight. Together with the built-in electronic view finder with true SVGA resolution, it provides incredible details and accurate colours.
Shoot like a pro
Change settings without taking your eye away from the viewfinder with the unique i-Function lens and Smart Panel technology.
Shoot in any light with Wide Range ISO
Capture sharp images even in low light thanks to the tremendously wide 100-12800 ISO setting.
Capture the action with Full HD Stereo Movie Recording
Built with 1080 30p Full HD movie recording capabilities, the NX20 lets you shoot video complete with stereo sound.

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.
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 thought that maybe the WiFi would be useful for transferring images to my computer without using a card reader or usb cable (the camera is usb 2.0, my card reader usb 3.0.) In the instructions, it states that you'll have to turn off your firewall! Not a hope in hell of that happening. More irritating is the fact that once you have sent an image, you can't send it again, even if the transfer failed. So I'll ignore these features and stick to the card reader.
The final WiFi piece of the puzzle is slightly more useful, though it may become more usable with later development. You can use your android phone as an external screen and remote release for the camera. Range is approx 7 meters, but you have little control over the camera settings and worse (for me) the camera operates in "Smart" mode - the setting recommended for beginners. If you can live with the limitations, it works quite well, though there is a delay between operating the phone and the shutter firing.
Now you may think I've been a little negative on the nx20, so why the 5* rating. It's simple. The image quality. These 20mp images are really superb. I took a photo of a dragonfly with the standard lens from about 60cm. Every vein in the dragonfly's wings is visible. Like it's predecessors, the colour is excellent, being neither too vibrant nor overly subdued. Add 8fps for 8 frames - even the bracketing uses this speed where possible - and it should be quite good for sports. Maybe not motor sport though. There is a 30 frame burst mode, but that's only records 5mp images.
If like me, you use old lenses via an adapter, you'll be pleased to know that you can use manual focus assist (zoomed viewfinder) by pressing the OK button. This isn't in the manual.
Overall, this is easily a match for all but the top dslr's, but without their weight penalty. The raws are excellent and most of the features are a major step up from the earlier cameras. I personally have little use for the WiFi, and I haven't even touched the video or "creative" modes, other than taking note of them for future experiments.
If you have one of the earlier Samsungs and are looking to upgrade, you won't be disappointed. If you're coming from a compact or bridge camera, then you can make use of the beginners mode (set on by default) and know that you'll have a camera that will grow with you as your skill set expands. If you're looking for a camera that's lighter than your current dslr, then you'll probably look at that manufacturers csc range. But you really should take a look at this too. It has one of the best sensors for colour rendition, plus the Samsung lenses are a match for all but Leicas'. Give it a try. You won't regret it.
I've had it for about a month now and its already started to play up!! It's no pro camera, but for the price it is exceptional... If it weren't for the issues I've recently been having!!
The screen turns pink after having it on for about 30 mins solid use AND (now this is the most annoying part) when you use the camera too fast/a lot in one go, the on-off/shutter release button just STOPS WORKING!!! So when you see the perfect shot, not only can you not take it, but you also cant turn the camera on and off (the electronic standard of problem fixing) so you have to take the battery out and then put it back in JUST TO TAKE A PICTURE!!...Isn't this the basic function of a camera - to take photos.
