Samsung NX11 review

The third model in Samsung's NX compact system camera line brings a few subtle changes to an existing formula

The NX11's multi-pattern focusing system picked the bulb of this flower out with ease, in turn blurring the flowers in the background. Next to the raw file of the same shot, this image taken on standard colour settings has vivid greens and nicely saturated reds. While the flowers at the top of the frame are a little distorted in the raw image, in-camera JPEG processing has helped to straighten things out

A typical example of the close focusing distance and shallow depth of field obtainable by the NX11 when using the 18-55mm kit lens

The camera's noise reduction system does a good job to remove colour noise from this image, but it's drawn out some colour with it.
