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 NX5 and the NX2000) and Nikon (such as the D3300 and the D3100)

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 3600 ms), has an OLED screen (OLED vs LCD), lets you preview your photos on the screen and has a CMOS-family sensor (CMOS vs LIVEMOS).

However, on average it has a much smaller screen (3" vs 3.3"), takes slightly lower resolution photos (14 MP vs 20 MP), slightly lower maximum light sensitivity (3,200 ISO vs 25,600 ISO), doesn't have a touch screen and doesn't have a screen which flips out.
