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 NX11 and the NX30) and Canon (such as the EOS Digital Rebel XSi and the PowerShot SX420 IS)

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) and has a built-in flash.

However, on average it records lower quality movies (720p @ 30fps vs 4K @ 24fps), doesn't record high-speed movies (none vs 1,200 fps), takes slightly lower resolution photos (14 MP vs 20 MP), slightly lower maximum light sensitivity (3,200 ISO vs 25,600 ISO) and doesn't have a touch screen.
