As well as being compared against other mirrorless, the Samsung NX10 is also often compared to entry-level DSLRs, pro digicams and super zooms. The Samsung NX10's top rivals come from Samsung (such as the NX11 and the NX20) and Canon (such as the Rebel T3i and the PowerShot G15)

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 3000 ms), has an OLED screen (OLED vs LCD), lets you preview your photos on the screen and has slightly less shutter lag (424 ms vs 598 ms).

However, on average it is slightly more noisy at high ISO (572 ISO vs 908 ISO), has significantly lower image quality (63.0 vs 75.0), has a much smaller screen (3" vs 3.7"), doesn't have image stabilization (none vs lens) and has much narrower dynamic range (10.8 EV vs 12.3 EV).
