Last Saturday, I was one of the few to first experience the slimmest interchangeable-lens camera debuted by Samsung Malaysia – Samsung NX mini Smart Camera. I’m personally quite fond to the slim compact size camera but able to produce great photos that can tabao my DSLR right away.
Samsung is proud to announce that NX Mini was the slimmest interchangeable-lens camera on the market by weighing its body only for 158g and 22.5mm design, I could easily carry it around by slipping in the camera into my pocket.
The Samsung product specialist brief us on the features of the camera before we head out for photo hunting. We were told that the camera was exclusively designed for the selfies addict to meet the current trend. With the 3 inch flip up and touch display screen that able to rotates 180-degree, “selfie-make-easy”!
The Samsung NX Mini is available in 5 different colours, from white to pink, mint green, brown and black, I found that the colour designs were all equally attractive.
Since this camera is designed for the selfie people, decided to give it a try! I adore how the mini camera able to produce the crisp, clear and quality image unlike the others camera.
With the ultra-slim 9mm wide angle lens, the NX mini able to capture group photos from an arm length. The 1-inch type 20.5 MP BSI CMOS Sensors enables the high quality images with such small camera body and yet retained the highest resolution in class and vivid colour.
One of the impressive features of it was the 6fps continuous shot mode, I didn’t expect this coming from a small camera.
We were given the opportunity to explore the central market and china town during the test shot session. Trust me, I haven’t been to the Central Market in my life time. It was a good time exploring it with loads of street food there.
I spotted durian ice cream at the Central Market and the next thing was I’m enjoying it already! The RM7 durian ice cream may sound expensive but the taste was so awesome!
Not to mention that I have the luxury to be accompanied by the pretty ladies during the walking =P
We walked to the nearby Petaling Street after the Central Market, I missed the must have Longan drinks there!
After spending an hour plus at the market, we were enroute to Johnny Rockets in Avenue K for our lunch. One of the popular burger joint in America, we were treated with scrumptious burger for lunch.
Throughout the session, I seriously find that the Tag & Go feature of the Samsung NX Mini amaze me the most. It allows the NX mini to pair wit NFC-enabled devices such as Samsung Galaxy Notes or S4/5. To make the picture clearer, touch the camera on the devices and the images can be transferred within a few seconds.
I always think that the NFC function on my Note 3 was a little waste as not function on it, but the NX mini integration has further enhance the value of the devices itself. From transfering single to multiple images, one can also send the image to 4 users at the same time or even control the NX mini via Remote View Finder Pro.
Long story short, Samsung NX Mini will definitely be in the recommendation list. Currently the NX Mini comes with either the 9mm F3.5 ED lens for RM1399 or 9-27mm F3.5-5.6 ED lens (arriving soon).
