As well as being compared against other mirrorless, the Samsung NX10 is also often compared to entry-level DSLRs and pro digicams. The Samsung NX10's top rivals come from Samsung (such as the NX1000 and the NX30) and Sony (such as the Alpha A6000 and the Alpha NEX-3)

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), lets you preview your photos on the screen and has a built-in flash.

However, on average it is slightly more noisy at high ISO (572 ISO vs 1,347 ISO), has slightly lower image quality (63.0 vs 82.0), has much narrower dynamic range (10.8 EV vs 12.7 EV), takes slightly lower resolution photos (14 MP vs 20 MP) and doesn't have a touch screen.
