Although NX200 structure differ greatly from its predecessor, NX100, but the concept remains the same. NX200 is compact camera equipped with interchangeable lens and relatively large APS-C sensor. NX100 has 20-50mm lens that is less attractive. NX200 is now equipped with new 18-55mm lens. 18-55 lens is different from the previous as it is equipped with i-Function. Through this lens button, users can access the shooting parameter.
The big change at the top of the camera is the location of the power lever, now it is located around the shutter button. Moreover, in this section users can find stereo mic, hotshoe, speakers, scroll dial, and dial mode.
While in the back, the big change is in the scroll dial around the four directions button. With this change, it means NX200 includes two scroll dial like a DSLR. NX200 also features dedicated video recording button, so users can start recording video at any time.
NX200 has a slim body. However, in contrast with 20-50mm lens, 18-55mm lens on NX200 is large enough, especially when the lens is at the longest zoom position. And, the size of the camera will be larger if the lens hood attached.
Viewfinder display in the camera is quite informative. Users can change various parameters via dedicated button on the back of the camera. If user want to change the settings which don't have dedicated button, they can probably find it in the display function.
Unfortunately, the video performance of NX200 can not match the performance of its image result. While resulting excellent video at enought light, but its performance suddenly decreased following reduced levels of lighting. In EV4, the video quality is below expectations, while at EV2 video images are hard to watch.
As a whole. This camera has a good ergonomic shape, as well as its layout menu and features, the quality of the lens, and the picture is also very good. Undeniable, that the NX200 is the Samsung best camera at this time.
