Samsung is taking on the Micro Four-Thirds crowd with the NX10, a mirror-less interchangeable lens camera with an APS-C sensor. The SAMSUNG NX10 offers an 14.6 Megapixels and APS-C size CMOS sensor which delivers high-quality images and rich, natural colour. It’s an ideal size to carry around with you, but still manages to include powerful features like high definition recording and an AF function for fast action shots.

Image Play Type: Single image, Thumbnails (3/9/20 images), Slide show, Movie

Samsung has stolen a march on its erstwhile rivals, Olympus and Panasonic by its decision to use a APS-C sensor, which is bigger than that included in its rival Four-Thirds camera. This should give better image quality, lower noise levels and is more in line with DSLRs from the likes of Nikon, Sony and Canon. Samsung has already built up a good reputation with its GX-Series of DSLRs and so it bodes well for the NX range. Initially, it will be available with three lenses. It ships with 18-55mm kit lens in the standard package and there is a 30mm pancake lens available and a 50-200mm. Apart from the 30mm pancake lens, they will come with Optical Image Stabilisation. Samsung has said that t will introduce more lenses later in 2010.
Jessops are selling the Standard Kit (18-55mm lens) for £499 and the Twin Lens Kit (18-55mm plus 30mm Pancake) for £599.
