As well as being compared against other mirrorless, the Samsung NX10 is also often compared to entry-level DSLRs, super zooms and pro digicams. The Samsung NX10's top rivals come from Samsung (such as the NX11 and the NX1000) and Canon (such as the EOS M and the EOS Rebel T5)

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 significantly 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 is slightly more noisy at high ISO (572 ISO vs 942 ISO), records lower quality movies (720p @ 30fps vs 4K @ 24fps), has slightly lower image quality (63.0 vs 72.0), has a slightly smaller screen (3" vs 3.3") and has a slightly lower resolution screen (614k dots vs 921k dots).
