Samsung NX11 review

The third model in Samsung's NX compact system camera line brings a few subtle changes to an existing formula

As part of our image quality testing for the Samsung NX11, we've shot our resolution chart with the Samsung 18-55mm II OIS lens mounted.

If you view our crops of the resolution chart's central section at 100% (or Actual Pixels) you will see that, for example, at ISO 100 the 24 is capable of resolving up to around 28 (line widths per picture height x100) in its highest quality JPEG files.

Examining images of the chart taken at each sensitivity setting reveals the following resolution scores in line widths per picture height x100:
