As well as being compared against other mirrorless, the Samsung NX10 is also often compared to entry-level DSLRs, pro DSLRs, super zooms and pro digicams. The Samsung NX10's top rivals come from Olympus (such as the E-450) and Panasonic (such as the Lumix DMC-G10 and the Lumix DMC-G2)

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 1700 ms), has an OLED screen (OLED vs LCD) and has a built-in flash.

However, on average it has a slightly smaller screen (3" vs 3.3"), doesn't have image stabilization (none vs lens), takes slightly lower resolution photos (14 MP vs 20 MP), doesn't have a touch screen and doesn't record movies in 24p.
