As well as being compared against other mirrorless, the Samsung NX10 is also often compared to entry-level DSLRs, pro DSLRs and super zooms. The Samsung NX10's top rivals come from Samsung (such as the NX11 and the NX20) and Nikon (such as the D3100 and the D5100)

compared toMirrorless interchangeable-lens competitors

Generally, some of the advantages of the Samsung NX10 compared to other mirrorless interchangeable-lens competitors include: it has higher quality type of viewfinder (digital vs none), has significantly less startup delay (1100 ms vs 3000 ms), has an OLED screen (OLED vs LCD) and has a built-in flash.

However, on average it records lower quality movies (720p @ 30fps vs 1080p @ 30fps), has slightly lower image quality (63.0 vs 75.0), has a slightly smaller screen (3.0" vs 3.3"), has a slightly lower resolution screen (614k dots vs 921k dots) and has significantly narrower dynamic range (10.8 EV vs 12.3 EV).
