As well as being compared against other mirrorless, the Samsung NX10 is also often compared to entry-level DSLRs and super zooms. The Samsung NX10's top rivals come from Samsung (such as the NX11 and the NX100) and Nikon (such as the D3300 and the D3200)

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 an OLED screen (OLED vs LCD) and has a built-in flash.

However, on average it is slightly more noisy at high ISO (572 ISO vs 785 ISO), has slightly lower image quality (63.0 vs 72.0), has significantly narrower dynamic range (10.8 EV vs 12.4 EV), takes slightly lower resolution photos (14 MP vs 20 MP) and doesn't have a touch screen.
