I don't review every Samsung model, however Samsung has tended to build models with the same imaging characteristics (e.g. sensor) across a set of designs—e.g. DSLR-like, compact camera-like—and across both high and low models. Moreover, many of their features and controls are consistent across the cameras in their model lineup.
- The first generation of Samsung models was the NX5, NX10, NX11, and NX100, which shared sensor and many features. Of these models I reviewed the NX100.
- The second generation consists of the NX20, NX200, NX210, and NX1000, and in this generation I've reviewed the NX1000.
- The third generation consisted of the NX30, NX300, and NX3000.
- The fourth generation currently consists of the DSLR-like NX1 and NX500.
The question everyone has about Samsung is this: are they committed to producing mirrorless cameras? Rumors abound that Samsung is stepping back from their camera division, and the fact we haven’t seen a new Samsung body or lens in some time seems to support that.
