Camera GearGuide says the Samsung NX100 compact system camera makes a compelling option for photographers looking to travel with all the benefits of their DSLR camera (image quality, control, and lens options) minus the weight and burden of a much larger camera system. In most regards, the NX100 achieves the goals of a compact system camera, and innovations like the i-Function lens capability certainly help to distinguish it from the growing number of competitors. But all is not perfect; read the full review here.

Camera GearGuide makes another interesting point: The growth of compact system cameras or “mirrorless” cameras on DSLR sales in the interchangeable lens camera market. Olympus and Panasonic's Micro Four Thirds (M4/3) cameras are relatively popular, and Sony has been making big waves with its NEX camera system. But according to GearGuide, Samsung seems determined to make an impact on this market as well.
