As well as being compared against other mirrorless, the Samsung NX10 is also often compared to entry-level DSLRs, pro DSLRs and pro digicams. The Samsung NX10's top rivals come from Sony (such as the Alpha DSLR-A390 and the Alpha DSLR-A550) and Samsung (such as the NX20 and the NX1000)

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.
