How we score

The Engadget Score is a unique ranking of products based on extensive independent research and analysis by our expert editorial and research teams. The Global Score is arrived at only after curating hundreds, sometimes thousands of weighted data points (such as critic and user reviews).

Engadget Summary

The Samsung NX1000 boasts most of the functionality of the higher-end NX210, including a 20-megapixel sensor and Wi-Fi, for a fraction of that camera's price. While the NX1000 is a good camera, and takes sharp photos and good HD video -- and should be your top choice if you want an interchangeable-lens compact that includes Wi-Fi -- the gdgt Must-have Sony NEX-5N is faster, has a better selection of available lenses, and sells for about the same price as the NX1000.
