For the shots above we have used the 20-50mm lens and what this shows is that even with the basic bundle the NX200 allows a decent level of flexibility. The 20-50mm range allows some zoom on landscape shots and on closer subjects we have the ability to pack in plenty of detail and play around with bokeh (blur) towards the areas of the image not required for full focus.

For comparison with a point and shoot we took the same images on Samsung’s 12.5MP WB750 and they are shown above. That camera allows a fuller zoom out of the box (we would need an additional lens for the NX200 to achieve this if we didn’t want to zoom/crop on our PC), though less megapixels than the CSC giving us limited editing/print options later in the process.

It is also worth pointing out that the NX200 isn’t all about serious photography. For the beginner, and younger users, there are a range of creative options which apply various effects to our shots in real time as well as adding frames and the like to images. Panorama mode is also available allowing us to move the camera horizontally or vertically for a much larger image than a single still allows.

Hopefully by now you should have a better understanding of what Compact System Cameras offer and where they slot into the market when compared with point and shoot models along with DSLRs. Really the key point to take away is that with models such as the NX200 (and the cheaper models in the range) Samsung are looking to pack as much power and flexibility into a compact chassis as is possible.

We are only at the beginning of the CSC age though and given the strong start we fully expect to see this form factor take over from DSLRs in the consumer space, especially as more lenses become available and more features are added. Using the NX range as an example the new NX210 adds Wi-Fi connectivity for the ability to instantly upload a picture to Facebook or even email it… exciting times are ahead in the camera marketplace.
