All in all, both of the cameras offer different megapixels and different sensor sizing. The CX6 having a smaller sensor will make getting shallower depth of field harder and the Samsung NX300M will render more detail because of its extra 10MP. Higher resolution will allow you to crop shots a little more aggressively. The older CX6 will be disadvantaged when it comes to sensor technology.
