Samsung’s new NX210 takes the 20.3-million-pixel sensor and high specification of the NX200 and adds the key new feature of Wi-Fi
I found that the NX210’s 221-segment evaluative metering generally performs well, producing well-exposed, bright images. In fact, once or twice I had to reduce the exposure by 0.3EV to darken images slightly. This was to make sure that enough detail was kept in highlight areas.
For the most part, the camera produces JPEG images suitable for printing. If a scene does require more precise metering for a local area, then centreweighted and spot metering are also available.
When EV compensation is needed, it can be applied using a button on the rear of the camera or via one of Samsung’s i-Function lenses. This requires the push of a button on the side of the lens barrel before turning a control ring on the lens to alter the setting. Each press of the button scrolls through a different setting, including aperture value and exposure compensation, making it easy to find the required setting.
