As well as being compared against other mirrorless, the Samsung NX100 is also often compared to entry-level DSLRs, travel zooms, digicams and pro digicams. The Samsung NX100's top rivals come from Samsung (such as the NX200 and the NX5) and Nikon (such as the D3100 and the D60)

compared toMirrorless interchangeable-lens competitors

Generally, some of the advantages of the Samsung NX100 compared to other mirrorless interchangeable-lens competitors include: it has an OLED screen (OLED vs LCD), lets you preview your photos on the screen and can focus continuously while recording movies.
