With the 30mm F2 and 18-55mm F3.5-5.6, the AF speed was similar to the DMC-GH1 + LUMIX G VARIO 14-45mm F3.5-5.6 ASPH. MEGA O.I.S or little less. Anyway, considering the contrast AF, it’s practical enough. However, it’s not enough to catch fast moving subjects like other Micro Four Third cameras.
The unique thing in the interface is a green button located on the right top. It’s a button to initialize various parameters such as exposure compensation, AF location, and White balance settings. Especially, it’s very convenient to move it back to center after moving the AF target. The Panasonic DMC-GH1/G1 can also move it back by using a delete button between the direction button and bottom. However, the location right next to the shutter button is very interesting.
I felt something strange while using the shutter button. Normally, there are 2 shutter levels like ‘Half shutter to Full shutter’. However, the NX10 has one more level before its half shutter. It’s like ‘Pre-shutter -> Half Shutter -> Full shutter’. The first one was very weak, but it took some time to get used to it. This depends on the users. Once getting used to it, there will be no problem at all.
This test was only made for 1 day, so I wouldn’t mention detailed review or image quality. But when it comes to snap shots, the size and response are almost the same as the DMC-GH1 for sure. It’s not as compact as the DMC-GF1 or E-P2, but users can get some different cool feeling from entry level of DSLR cameras.
I personally liked the NX10, but I’m worrying about the customer service and a new lens or accessories. The less number of the lenses is also a little uncomfortable to be honest. There will be a detailed review by a photographer.
