      Styled like a compact digicam – and only a little larger – Samsung’s NX100 is quite different from the SLR-like NX10 the company released earlier this year. It sports an APS-C size sensor with an effective resolution of 14.6 megapixels and introduces a new series of lenses. A high-resolution 3-inch AMOLED screen covers much of the rear panel – but if you want a viewfinder, it’s an add-on accessory.

      The review camera was supplied with the 20-50mm f/3.5-5.6 kit lens that will be offered as an option. A 20mm f/2.8 ‘pancake’ lens is the other alternative. Shortly after we received the camera Samsung issued a firmware upgrade (ver. 01.01) that promised improved AF accuracy in Night mode and better system stability. Our long-exposure tests were conducted after this upgrade was installed.

      In Australia, the NX100 will be offered in two colours: black and brown. According to Samsung, its body design is ‘inspired by the simple shape of dew forming on a leaf’ which we feel is a bit fanciful. However, build quality is generally good, as is the overall finish of the camera body.

      The right hand side of the front panel is gently curved and flares out a little at the top to provide a comfortable resting point for the remaining fingers when the index finger hovers over the shutter button. There’s no grip per se, and the smooth surface of the front panel could be slippery at times, which means it’s best to use two hands in most situations – although one-handed shooting is possible.

      Design-wise the front panel is minimalistic, with only an AF-assist/self-timer lamp, the lens mount and lens release button to interrupt its smoothness. Stainless steel has been used for the mounting plate, although the supplied 20-50mm lens has a plastic mount, which is less durable.

      Most of the camera body appears to be made from polycarbonate (plastic), although the top panel is brushed aluminium. The mode dial is a prominent feature here, carrying settings for the Smart Auto, Program AE, Aperture -priority, Shutter priority and Manual settings plus a ‘Lens priority’ mode that uses the new i-Function lens capabilities (outlined below). The Scene mode accesses pre-sets for Beauty shot, Children, Close Up, Text, Sunset, Dawn, Backlight, Fireworks, Beach & Snow, Night, Portrait, Landscape, Sports and Sound Picture modes, while the Movie mode must be selected to record video clips.

      Also prominent on the top panel is a hot shoe that can accept an add-on flash unit, electronic viewfinder or GPS unit. The shutter button is made from shiny stainless steel. Behind it is a jog dial that is used for changing shutter speeds in some shooting modes and adjusting the AF frame with manual AF point selection.

      The speaker grille comprising four tiny slots sits close to the right hand side of the top panel. A single, slightly smaller microphone hole is located close to the front of the camera and slightly right of the hot-shoe. The power on-off switch is at the right-hand end of the step-down section that separates the top and rear panels. (The mode dial intrudes into this area.)


      The rear panel of the NX100. (Source: Samsung.)

      Two thirds of the rear panel is covered by the 3-inch AMOLED monitor, which is the same as on the NX10. With a resolution of 614,000 dots, it provides a detailed view in playback mode and its refresh rate is fast enough for smooth video playback.

      The NX100’s specifications claim ‘approximately 100% field-of-view coverage. However, when we conducted our Imatest tests, we found it to be closer to 95%, which is standard for the viewfinders in most entry- and mid-level DSLRs.

      Although the monitor has an automatic brightness adjustment setting (it’s located under Framing Mode on page 3 of the shooting menu) the default setting is off. Unless it’s switched on, the screen can appear dark in very low light levels, making it difficult to compose shots.

      Directly above the monitor are the Display button and the ‘Smart Shoe’ port for attaching the optional EVF or GPS unit. It’s protected by a rubber cover, which is unattached and could be easily mislaid.

      Lined up along the right of the monitor are three buttons that access the AE-lock, exposure compensation and Menu settings. The AEL button can be set to lock exposure only, focus only or both focus and exposure, the latter via the Key Mapping settings in the Menu.
      A thumb rest indentation is located to the right of these buttons. Below it – and close to the right side of the rear panel – is the Fn button, which calls up a Quick Menu that accesses image size/quality settings, metering mode, Smart Range and Picture Wizard settings.

      Further down is the arrow pad with directional buttons for the AF/MF, WB, ISO and Drive modes plus a surrounding Navigation Wheel that rotates to adjust lens apertures and scroll through shots in playback mode. Below the arrow pad lie the Playback and Green/Delete buttons.

      Pressing the Green/Delete button in shooting mode resets the Picture Wizard, White Balance, u Display Colour, Timer, Flash EV, Selection AF and exposure compensation to their default positions. In playback mode it lets you delete images one-by-one or in selected groups.

      Tether loops for the neck strap are located high on the side panels. The left side panel carries the main interface connectors (USB, HDMI, DC-in and remote) under a lift-up plastic cover. Also on this panel is a button labelled ‘C’, which provides depth-of-field preview but can be customised to access other functions.

      The combined battery/card compartment is located in the base plate and accessed via a slide-out cover (similar to those used in digicams). A latch is provided to keep the battery in place. The tripod socket, which is metal-lined, is also found here, positioned centrally with respect to the lens axis.

      So far the accessories available for this camera are pretty limited. There are only three lenses plus a clip-on EVF, flash unit and GPS unit. The last three use the same hot-shoe so they can only be used one at a time.

      iFunction Lens Controls
      With the release of the NX100, Samsung has also introduced a new range of iFunction (iFn) lenses, each with a dedicated button that plays a similar role to a standard Function button. Pressing this button displays a Quick Menu on the monitor and allows you to use the lens focusing ring (and jog dial) to adjust exposure settings, depending on which mode is selected.

      This is supposed to make it easier to change camera settings when your left hand is supporting the lens barrel and your finger is poised above the shutter button and jog dial. However, it takes a bit of getting used to and we didn’t find it as comfortable to use as the dial wheels on most DSLRs.

      In the P mode, you can select EV, ISO and WB. The A mode provides aperture settings, while the S mode includes shutter speeds and M mode lets you set the aperture via the navigation ring and the shutter speed via the jog dial. If you’ve selected the iFn mode on the mode dial pressing the iFn button allows you to change Scene modes via the lens focusing ring.

      Other Controls
      Like many mirrorless cameras (and some advanced digicams and DSLRs), the NX100’s functionality is often compromised through having some key controls handle multiple functions. Inevitably, this means a lot of toggling is required to set some functions – and that can take time and lead to user frustration.

      As an example, if you want to move the AF point away from its default position in the centre of the screen, the first step involves setting the AF mode to Selection AF (Menu > Camera Page 2 > AF Area; press OK > Selection AF). Then hold the OK button down and use the arrow pad and navigation wheel to re-position the AF frame. Seconds pass while you make these adjustments – and shots are easily missed.

      To change the size of the AF area you must hold down the OK button and rotate the jog dial – and if you want to link the AE metering to the AF point, you have to go back into the menu, select Camera Page 3 > Link AE to AF Point > On. It’s a pity Samsung didn’t include a Spot AF Metering option – although Spot metering is provided (along with the usual multi-pattern and centre-weighted average modes).

      The Smart Range dynamic range extension feature introduced in Samsung’s digicams and ported across to the NX series, is also found on the NX100. It’s accessible via the Fn button or on Page 3 of the shooting menu.

      The NX100 supports a fair degree of user customisation, including the ability to set ISO adjustments in increments of 1EV or 1/3 EV and restrict the maximum ISO value when Auto ISO is selected. You can also customise the self-timer in one-second increments between 2 and 30 seconds.

      Bracketing is also highly adjustable, although limited to three shots at a time. Exposure bracketing covers +/- 3EV in 1/3 EV increments; white balance bracketing lets you choose from one, two or three steps on the amber/blue and magenta/green axes and Picture Wizard bracketing lets you take three shots with different Picture Wizard settings.

      Samsung appears to have equipped the NX100 with most of the ‘Picture Wizard’ settings provided in the NX10, although only three were actually accessible on the review camera: Standard (the default), Vivid and Portrait. The rest were greyed-out, which implies they could be activated by a future firmware update. All are adjustable with +/- four steps for saturation, sharpness and contrast.

      Four grid overlays are available to assist with shot composition: 2 x 2, 3 x 3, +-shaped and x-shaped. Unfortunately, the only histogram available is brightness-only – and it’s pretty small. Key mapping, also carried over from the NX10, lets you allocate a specific function to the AEL and C buttons. The AEL button can be set to handle AEL or AFL separately or both together, while the C button offers the choice of depth-of-field preview (the default), one-touch WB, Optical Preview and One-touch RAW.

      We couldn’t test the NX100’s flash modes because no flash was supplied. However, the camera supports auto, fill-in (with or without red-eye reduction) and first- and second-synch modes and you can adjust output intensity by +/- two levels.

      Sensor and Image Processing
      The 23.4 x 15.6mm CMOS sensor in the NX100 appears to be the same as in the NX10. Developed and manufactured by Samsung with input from Pentax, it boasts a total of 15.1 million photosites, with 14.6 megapixels effective.

      Unlike most other manufacturers, Samsung makes no reference to its image processor in either the user manual for the camera (which is brief and not particularly helpful) or on its website so we can’t provide any information about the capabilities of the chip.

      Like the NX10, the NX100 can record still pictures in JPEG format (Exif 2.21) or Samsung’s proprietary SRW.RAW format. Three JPEG compression levels are provided: Super Fine, Fine and Normal, along with three aspect ratios – 3:2, 16:9 and 1:1.

      Raw files can be coupled with any JPEG size and compression level. The table below shows typical file sizes for individual files.

      As with the NX10, HD video clips are recorded at 1280 x 720 pixels, using the H.264 compression and MP4 codec. Soundtracks are recorded monaurally using the AAC format.

      SD video recording is available at VGA and QVGA resolution and all video modes have a frame rate of 30 fps. The maximum clip length is 25 minutes – which represents about 1.5GB at the highest resolution. The table below shows typical video clip sizes with a 4GB memory card.

      Having selected the Movie mode with the mode dial, you can use the Menu button (Menu > Movie AE Mode) to choose between the Program and Aperture priority AE, the only modes available for recording movie clips. The former adjusts aperture and shutter speed settings automatically while the latter lets the user adjust the lens aperture with the navigation wheel. (The aperture should be set before shooting begins.)

      Page 3 of the Movie menu provides a Fader setting with four options: Off, In (fade in), Out and In-Out. You can’t control the speed or duration of the fade, which occurs over a period of roughly four seconds, with fade-ins beginning to show a picture about two seconds after the shutter button has been pressed to initiate recording.

      The same menu page also contains a Wind Cut filter and a Voice recording mode. Both can be turned on or off but provide no intermediate adjustments. Recording is initiated and stopped by pressing the shutter button.

      Playback and Software
      Playback options include the usual full-screen image with or without shooting data, a thumbnail index with three, nine or 20 images (selectable via the jog dial) and slideshow playback of all or selected shots. Selections can include by type, date or week (or location if the optional GPS tagger was used) and you can adjust the intervals between pictures and choose between two transition effects (each with varying transitions).

      The transition effects are randomised and not individually selectable. Turning the effects off provides a smoother-looking slide show. (We also opted to also turn off the rather tinny sounding ‘canned’ background music provided in the camera.) The standard protect, delete and auto/manual rotate functions are supported, along with DPOF tagging. You can also set a highlight alert display.

      Editing adjustments for still images include red-eye fix, backlight adjustment and face retouching. Video clips can be trimmed at either end and you can capture a still frame from a video clip in playback mode. Images edited in-camera are saved as separate files.

      The ‘Photo Style Selector’ lets you apply seven different effects to an image in playback mode. On offer are Soft, Vivid, Forest, Autumn, Misty, Gloomy and Classic (B&W) effects.


      Photo Style effects (left to right): top row – original image, Soft; second row – Vivid, Forest; third row – Autumn, Misty; fourth row – Gloomy, Classic.

      Alternatively, you can apply one of seven new ‘Smart Filter’ effects, chosen from Vignetting, Miniature, Fish-Eye, Sketch, Defog, Halftone Dots and Soft Focus. All filters reduce the size of the image file by about 25% and the position of the in-focus strip in the Miniature mode isn’t adjustable, which makes it less useful for selective focusing than similar functions on more sophisticated cameras.


      Smart Filter effects (left to right): top row – original image, Vignetting, Miniature, Fish-Eye; bottom row – Sketch, Defog, Halftone Dots, Soft Focus.

      The software bundle includes Samsung’s Intelli-studio, a fairly basic image and video organiser, viewer and editing application that only works with JPEGs, plus Samsung Raw Converter 4.0. The raw converter is essentially the same as the one provided with the NX10. A more detailed version of the user manual is also provided in PDF format.


      Samsung’s Intelli-studio provides only basic editing facilities but includes before and after comparisons so users can see the effects of changes they make.

      The Kit Lens
      The 20-50mm f/3.5-5.6 kit lens supplied with the review camera covers focal lengths equivalent to 30-75mm in 35mm format. It features a retractable design similar to the 14-42mm kit lens provided by Olympus with its PEN-series cameras and the camera displays a warning whenever you switch power on before the lens is extended. However, it’s just over 30 grams lighter than the Olympus lens.

      The optical design comprises nine elements in eight groups, with one aspherical element and a low-dispersive lens included. Seven diaphragm blades close to a circular aperture. Angle-of-view coverage ranges from 31.4 degrees to 70.2 degrees and the minimum focusing distance is 28 cm, which provides a maximum magnification of 0.22 times. The inner barrel is threaded for 40.5 mm filters.

      When fitted to the NX100, this lens extends approximately 39 mm in front of the camera body in the retracted position, while the inner barrel reaches out to 50 mm at the 24mm setting or 55 mm when zoomed in to the 50mm focal length. A 6 mm wide focusing ring is located at the front of the outer barrel, offering fly-by-wire focusing.

      You can magnify the centre of the screen by approximately 2.5x by selecting Menu > Camera Page 2 > MF Assist > Enlarge or display a vertical bar focus-assist indicator by choosing Menu > Camera Page 2 > MF Assist > FA. Unfortunately, you can have both operating together.

      The manual zoom ring is about 12 mm wide and closer to the camera body. Like the focusing ring it carries finely-moulded ridges to assist grip. The lens extension button is also located here. Between the two rings, the lens barrel carries marking for the 20mm, 24mm, 35mm and 50mm focal length settings.

      The iFn button sits on the same section of the barrel further around to the left. Supported Scene modes for this button include Beauty shot, Portrait, Children, Backlight, Landscape, Sunset, Dawn, Beach & Snow and Night.

      Imatest showed this lens to be a reasonably good performer that was capable of matching the sensor’s specifications at a few aperture and focal length settings. Best results were obtained a couple of f-stops down from maximum aperture and with the 35mm focal length setting. The graph below shows the results of our tests.


      Lateral chromatic aberration was mainly in the ‘negligible’ band, reaching into the ‘low’ band with the 20mm focal length setting. In the graph below, the red line marks the boundary between ‘negligible’ and ‘low’ CA.


      Test shots confirmed our Imatest testing. Some coloured fringing was found in shots taken with the 20mm focal length but none was visible at longer focal length settings. Distortion was barely noticeable at the 20mm focal length setting and undetectable at other focal lengths.

      Although focusing speed is reduced with contrast-based autofocusing, the NX100 was relatively quick to focus in brightly-lit conditions. However, in low light levels it was noticeably slower, less accurate and prone to hunting. Focusing was almost silent with the 20-50mm lens.

      Images straight from the camera were a little soft and benefited from post-capture unsharp masking. Colour accuracy was good in JPEG shots and Imatest showed only slight boosts in saturation in reds and purples. Skin hues were shifted slightly towards warmer hues, particularly for lighter skins.

      Blown-out highlights presented sporadic problems in bright, contrasty lighting. While switching on the Smart Range (dynamic range adjustment) setting produced some improvement, it was often necessary to use -0.3EV of exposure compensation to record usable details in the brightest parts of scenes.

      Imatest showed resolution to be close to expectations for JPEG files and raw files converted with the supplied Samsung Raw Converter software turned in similar results. Using Adobe Camera Raw to convert raw files yielded 16-bit TIFF files that were well above expectations.

      JPEG resolution trended steadily downwards as ISO sensitivity was increased and was relatively low at ISO 3200. Raw files maintained a significantly higher resolution across the camera’s sensitivity range, although resolution was slightly below expectations for a 14-megapixel camera at ISO 3200. The graph below shows the results of our Imatest tests.


      Little noise was evident in long exposures up to ISO 800 and not much at ISO 3200. However, the inherent slight softening in JPEG shots became more emphatic as ISO sensitivity was increased. We weren’t able to test flash performance as no flash was supplied with the review camera.

      Auto white balance performance was similar to that of the Samsung NX10. Shots taken under incandescent lighting retained a warm cast, while shots taken with fluorescent lighting were close to cast-free – as long as you selected the appropriate mode from the three fluorescent light pre-sets provided.

      For both lighting types, the pre-sets slightly over-corrected colours but the manual measurement system delivered a neutral colour balance. Plenty of in-camera adjustments are provided for tweaking images as you shoot and white balance bracketing of +/- three levels in one-step increments is available for dealing with tricky lighting.

      Shooting video with the review camera was hampered by the lack of stabilisation in either the camera body or supplied lens. The compact, relatively lightweight body is quite difficult to hold steady in moderate breezes and almost impossible to keep still in 20-knot winds. Wind noise was an ever-present problem in soundtracks, with the wind cut filter merely muffling its effect instead of suppressing it.

      The camera was able to re-set focus and exposure to match subject requirements during panning and zooming. But, the lag time for making these adjustments was frequently several seconds. There was also a lag or roughly one second before recording began after the shutter button was pressed.

      HD video clips were generally clear and colour accurate and we found little evidence of the rolling shutter effect that plagues many large-sensor cameras. VGA and QVGA clips were much as you’d expect for their respective resolutions and focusing and exposure lags were equally noticeable.

      The review camera took almost three seconds to power-up with Sensor Cleaning enabled at start-up. Turning sensor cleaning off (Menu > Setup Page 3 > Sensor Cleaning > Start-Up Action – Off) reduced the lag to approximately one second. Shot-to-shot times averaged 1.5 seconds. We measured an average capture lag of 0.35 seconds, which reduced to 0.15 seconds with pre-focusing.

      It took 2.6 seconds on average to process each JPEG image, 4.7 seconds for each or raw file and 6.4 seconds for a RAW+JPEG pair. The high-speed Burst mode can only record JPEG images at 1472 x 976 pixel resolution. Nevertheless its performance was impressive as we were able to capture 30 frames in 2.7 seconds. It took 8.1 seconds to process this burst.
      The continuous mode works with all file formats, although the buffer is restricted to five SRW.RAW files or four RAW+JPEG pairs. In this mode, the review camera captured 10 Large/Super Fine JPEGs in 3.9 seconds. It took 5.1 seconds to process this burst.

      In SRW.RAW capture mode, five shots were recorded in 1.8 seconds and it took 17.2 seconds to process them all. The same capture speed applied to RAW+JPEG shooting, although only four image pairs were recorded in 1.3 seconds. It took 16.9 seconds to process this burst.

      Buy this camera if:
      – You want a compact, interchangeable-lens digital camera and are prepared to shoot and edit raw files.
      – You want good low light performance at high ISO settings.
      – You’d like to be able to shoot high-resolution still pictures plus HD video clips.
      – You want good battery life.
      Don’t buy this camera if:
      – You require a built-in flash.
      – You require tracking AF for still capture plus fast autofocusing for shooting video clips.
      – You require a wide range of interchangeable lenses. (Although more are promised, only three are available thus far, along with a K-mount adaptor.)
