The most interesting part of the camera market right now lies right in between a point-and-shoot and a DSLR. Basically, the former category is being eaten alive by ever-improving smartphone cameras, and the latter is a fairly mature market without a lot of drastic change. So companies like Sony, Panasonic, and Olympus have developed the NEX line and the Micro Four Thirds standard, bringing excellent image quality to smaller cameras with smaller price tags.

The NX20 is the latest in Samsung's efforts to turn the mirrorless threesome into a quartet. The camera sticks to the required blueprints, packing a large sensor (in this case a 20.3-megapixel APS-C) into a small mirrorless body, and offering interchangeable lenses. Samsung also offers a couple of unique features, like a built-in Wi-Fi radio that lets your camera connect to your smartphone. At $1,099.99 with an 18-55mm kit lens, it comes in near the top of the price range of mirrorless cameras, and is knocking on the door of the DSLR market. Can Samsung's latest find its way into the in-crowd? Let's see.
