Samsung are also in the mix with their NX10 and that camera has now been joined by the NX100. "The Samsung NX100 has across the board appeal," explained Paul Scott, digital imaging product manager of Samsung UK. "In terms of features, the NX100 will attract more experienced users because it is a fully featured system camera, while the fashion conscious will appreciate that it does not have the bulk of a DSLR but is still capable of higher quality results than a typical compact camera. They will also appreciate its good looks. The NX100’s body is contoured and curvy and that is a response to feedback from consumers and market research.
