Sam­sung, $899 sam­

★★★★ ONE of the new breed of com­pact in­ter­change­able lens cam­eras, Sam­sung’s NX100 is even smaller than the model be­fore it. Now weigh­ing just 282g, its pe­tite body is housed in a smooth plas­tic shell that es­chews cor­ners for easy han­dling. The 14.6-megapixel cam­era also omits a viewfinder or flash, though you can add them, but it in­tro­duces a new fea­ture to its lens: an iFunc­tion but­ton. Press­ing this gives you in­stant ac­cess to set­tings such as aper­ture, ex­po­sure and white bal­ance with­out forc­ing you to dive into menus and re­com­pose your shot. The NX100 uses the same APS-C sen­sor as its pre­de­ces­sor but adds 6400 ISO light sen­si­tiv­ity and 720p video record­ing.
