Samsung’s award-winning NX10 compact system camera has been updated. We look at the improvements made in the NX11
The dynamic range of the NX11 is average, with highlights occasionally becoming burnt out in high-contrast scenes
With the same sensors and processors, the NX11 has exactly the same dynamic range as the NX10, with DxO Mark (www.dxomark.com) measuring it at almost 11EV. This is an acceptable range without being outstanding, and as a comparison the 14.2-million-pixel sensor of the Sony NEX-5 has a range of 12.2EV, while the Nikon D3100 has a range of 11.3EV.
In most images the dynamic range is acceptable, although in some high-contrast landscapes the camera produces clipped highlights in the sky a little sooner than I would have liked.
