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 NX5 and the NX20) and Pentax (such as the K-30 and the K-r)

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 an OLED screen (OLED vs LCD), lets you preview your photos on the screen and has a built-in flash.
