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 NX500 and the NX11) and Sony (such as the SLT A57 and the NEX C3)

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 1500 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 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 significantly narrower dynamic range (10.8 EV vs 12.4 EV).
