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 NX300 and the NX11) and Nikon (such as the D3100 and the D5200)

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 slightly less startup delay (1100 ms vs 1700 ms), has an OLED screen (OLED vs LCD) and has a built-in flash.

However, on average it has slightly lower image quality (63.0 vs 72.0), has a slightly lower resolution screen (614k dots vs 768k dots), 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.
