Samsung’s award-winning NX10 compact system camera has been updated. We look at the improvements made in the NX11


Although centreweighted and spot metering options are available for more complex scenes, it is testament to the evaluative metering of the NX11 that during my time testing the camera I only needed to adjust the exposure compensation for a handful of images, most of which were of the same scene and included a lot of shadow detail.

The camera tried to brighten the image to show some of this detail, but at the expense of the rich blue sky.

However, by setting the compensation to -1EV, I succeeded in producing the image I wanted. In fact, there were few images that needed major adjustment when editing post-capture.
