Samsung NX11 unboxed – promises SLR like performance without the bulk


I had spent a lot of time with the Samsung NX10, as I was fortunate enough to use one during a particularly long event coverage. The compact nature mirrorless cameras lend itself well to ease of use and transport, and Sammy’s interpretation is no different. We managed to get our hands on a retail version of the NX11, the successor to the NX10. The NX11 comes in a nice little box that holds the power cable, the lens and NX11 body.

The bad boy itself. The NX11 closely resembles the layout of a traditional DSLR, so users who are migrating or upgrading won’t have trouble adjusting.

The NX11 features a 3-inch AMOLED display on the back and due to the nature of the design, has an electronic viewfinder.

Front view of the NX11. Here you can see the difference of the mirrorless and the traditional DSLR design. The NX11 uses a 14.6-megapixel APS-C sized CMOS sensor and an image engine that can shoot images from ISOs of 100 to 3200.

The NX11 uses Samsung’s own lenses, dubbed i-Fn. The particular lens included in the package is a 18-55mm deal with OIS. It’s a decent lens for the package.

And that’s it. Watch for our review of the NX11 in the coming days.
