As well as being compared against other mirrorless, the Samsung NX10 is also often compared to pro DSLRs, entry-level DSLRs and super zooms. The Samsung NX10's top rivals come from Samsung (such as the NX11 and the NX20) and Nikon (such as the D7100 and the D5300)

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 2200 ms), has an OLED screen (OLED vs LCD) and has a built-in flash.

However, on average it records lower quality movies (720p @ 30fps vs 3840 x 2160 @ 30fps), has slightly lower image quality (63.0 vs 72.0), 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 record movies in 24p.
