Samsung NX200
Samsung shows improvement with their second mirrorless camera.
By Hillary Grigonis, Last updated on: 6/19/2014

Samsung's NX200 is its second mirrorless camera, the first being somewhat of a flop. The NX200 manages to fix all of the issues in its predecessor and, with a 20.3 megapixel sensor, captures an impressive amount of detail at lower ISOs. The noise reduction is a bit heavy-handed when shooting JPEG (and RAW slows the camera down), but some may not notice or even appreciate the cleaner files. Other interesting features include the ability to shoot at 30 fps at 5 megapixels, a 3-inch OLED screen, a sexy metal body, and extensive customization options. The NX lens lineup is still in its infancy yet growing steadily, and all include the very useful iFN button as an on-lens customizable button. The competition is stiff, yet if you want resolution in a small package (and can't stomach the NEX-7's price tag), this is your camera.

Samsung Reviews

Known more for their smartphones than their cameras, Samsung offers the most connected line of imaging products for those who love the instant uploads from their cell phone but want to step up in quality.

Samsung has lead the way in the camera industry when it comes to sharing digital images—and even taking them. The Samsung NX3000 has a feature that allows you to wink at the camera to snap the photo, designed for selfie lovers. Some of their latest models can share images with a phone just by tapping the two devices together.

For those looking for the best image quality with the most connectivity, Samsung's mirrorless models are the way to go. While they feature the connectivity of a Samsung, they have large sensors and decent processors too. You'll likely pay a bit more over a camera without wi-fi or any connectivity, but for many the difference is well worth it.

Samsung's Galaxy cameras go beyond just connecting with wi-fi and add 3G so users can upload without sending it to a smartphone via wi-fi. Samsung offers a few budget models too, and while you get what you pay for applies to the image quality, not very many budget cameras include wi-fi.

Samsung has also taken style to heart. Many of their cameras feature a faux leather wrap, giving them a classy look.

If you are looking for a connected camera, Samsung is the manufacturer to consider.
