Samsung’s award-winning NX10 compact system camera has been updated. We look at the improvements made in the NX11
Viewfinder, LCD, Live View and Video
Although the NX10’s electronic viewfinder (EVF) was impressive when we first saw it, its 921,000 dots aren’t so impressive now when compared to the 1.44-million-dot EVF found on the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH2.
The NX11 uses the same EVF as the NX10 and, while it is still good, it has been a little outshone by the aforementioned GH2 and the 1.15-million-dot EVF of the Sony Alpha 55. I imagine that the next NX-series camera will feature a new EVF that will match or better the resolutions of these two rival cameras.
The 3in AMOLED screen of the NX10 remains, although again the 614,000-dot screen looks a little dated compared to some of the high-resolution screens we are used to seeing now. In its favour, though, it is bright with a good level of colour and contrast, and the graphic design of the menu systems is pleasing to the eye.
Video capture also remains unchanged at 1280×720 pixels in resolution, captured in H.264 compression with mono sound.
