If you're interested in a new compact DSLR, check out the Samsung NX200. Ilse Jurriën reviews the 20.3-megapixel camera at LetsGoDigital, and says it's an improvement over the Samsung NX100 and delivers strong image quality. The camera retails for about $900 and comes with an 18mm-55mm zoom kit lens and on-camera flash. She writes:
"Two months ago, Samsung introduced the successor to the compact Samsung NX100 system camera. The new Samsung NX200 is even more compact than its predecessor, which makes the NX200 system camera very easy to carry around. The lightweight metallic Samsung NX200 is equipped with a new APS-C CMOS sensor with a large ISO range of 100 to 12800. The large sensor can catch more light, so that the amount of noise is reduced and more details are captured. The resolution is increased to 20.3 megapixels. The revolutionary i-Function lens, that was implemented for the first time in the NX100, is also found in the Samsung NX200."
