As well as being compared against other mirrorless, the Samsung NX10 is also often compared to super zooms, entry-level DSLRs and pro digicams. The Samsung NX10's top rivals come from Samsung (such as the NX11 and the NX20) and Sony (such as the CyberShot DSC-H300 and the Alpha DSLR-A390)

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 much less startup delay (1100 ms vs 2000 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 4K @ 24fps), doesn't have image stabilization (none vs sensor shift), takes significantly lower resolution photos (14 MP vs 28 MP), slightly lower maximum light sensitivity (3,200 ISO vs 25,600 ISO) and doesn't have a touch screen.
