“Overall, we really like the Samsung NX11. It’s not as big as a traditional digital SLR, but it still has a digital SLR-sized sensor and its results are very good.”
Rating: ★★★★☆

PhotographyBlog reviews the Samsung NX11 and writes;
“the NX11 offers intuitive handling, especially for beginners, great image quality and fantastic value for money, and is still competitive with the best that the other manufacturers can offer… Highly recommended.”
Rating: ★★★★½

T3 reviews the Samsung NX11 and writes;
“In terms of crispness, the NX11’s sensor and lens conspire to deliver some great looking video footage, and further good news is delivered by the fact that the camera’s auto focus responds near instantly to any lens adjustments, so footage is only soft for the briefest time if zooming in or out – so brief it’s hardly noticeable.”
Rating: ★★★★☆

TechRadar reviews the Samsung NX11 and writes;
“The Samsung NX11 is an enjoyable camera to use, with a pleasing user interface and good results, but it’s not as great an upgrade over the NX10 as its current price premium may suggest.”
Rating: ★★★☆☆

PocketLint reviews the Samsung NX11 and writes;
“The ISO 100-400 settings are clean, clear and sharp. ISO 800 through to ISO 1600 don’t maintain quite the same level of quality due to noise reduction processing, but files at all sensitivities are useable and resolve a good amount of detail.”
Rating: ★★★★½

WDC reviews the Samsung NX11 and writes;
“image quality is otherwise decent and sharp from ISO 100-400. It may not win the prize for retaining sharpness above this setting, but the larger sensor size certainly puts itself above and beyond the capabilities of some similar Panasonic models, such as the Lumix G2.”

Samsung NX11 Features

RIDGEFIELD PARK, N.J.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd, a global leader in digital media and digital convergence technologies, today announced the launch of the NX11 – the latest addition to the highly successful NX family of cameras. The NX11 contains a feature set similar to Samsung’s first mirrorless interchangeable lens camera, the NX10, however the NX11 is also compatible with the new i-Function lens that was introduced for the NX100. The NX11 will come complete with an 18-55mm i-Function lens, as well as two new i-Function lenses, a 20mm pancake and a 20-50mm zoom silver color lens. The launch reinforces the company’s commitment to leading innovation in the compact system camera market.

The i-Function lens puts the perfect picture at the fingertips of all photographers by providing an exceptionally easy way of controlling the camera. Since a typical camera user wraps their hand around the lens when holding the camera, the new i-Function system allows photographers to naturally use their left hand to change the camera’s advanced settings via a button built into the i-Function lens, without needing to take the camera off the target. Users can toggle between shutter speed, aperture, EV, WB, and ISO quickly and easily by simply using the i-Function button or ring on the lens, meaning easier and quicker configurations while shooting.

The NX11 also focuses on usability, with a change in the grip design to make shooting easier and more comfortable for users. Additionally, the NX11 has a lens priority mode dial, simplifying the search for the best mode for each lens. The camera also includes a convenient, one-touch i-Function button that activates common shooting controls like aperture, shutter speed, ISO and white balance, meaning easier and quicker configuration while shooting. The camera makes taking great landscape scenes or pictures of large groups simple by featuring a panorama mode, which allows the user to take panoramic pictures in one press-and-sweep motion. As with the NX10, the NX11 uses the best-in-class APS-C sensor for better image quality. The APS-C sensor is larger than Micro 4/3 and delivers high quality images with ease.

“Today’s launch is important for Samsung in reinforcing our position as a leading innovator in the digital camera market and for showing our innovation in the compact system camera market,” said Mr. Hyunho Chung, Executive Vice President and Head of the Digital Imaging Business, Samsung Electronics. “The NX11, while offering the best features of the NX10, has an upgraded design and the additional i-Function capability with more lenses. The launch of our next offering in the NX range also demonstrates our commitment to our customers, by producing user driven innovation in the form of easy-to-use functions and upgraded customization.”

Alongside the built-in flash and built-in electronic VGA (640×480) viewfinder, the NX11 has a 3.0” AMOLED LCD screen. The AMOLED screen reduces the glare from sunlight so that consumers can see their images under any lighting conditions. The user can also get a more vivid, clearer image through enhanced color reproduction. The NX11 provides high quality video with 720p HD recording, and its large APS-C sensor allows the videos to be recorded with shallow depth of field, providing effects similar to those in motion picture movies.

    When is this going to be available? They have it on Amazon.UK but they won’t ship it to the US. Not even Samsung will tell me when I can buy it here in the US.
