What the heck am I talking about? Well, last Saturday I was invited to the launch of the latest Samsung camera - the Samsung NX Mini Smart camera! And it wasnt just a boring old launch either; myself and 29 other Manoah bloggers were each given a snowy white NX Mini each, and sent off on a marathon around Pasar Seni to give us a chance to test it out. Only condition: Selfies, the more the better!
I immediately fell in love with the compactness, luxurious leatherette finish, and interchangeable lens. They werent kidding when they said it was gonna be Samsung's slimmest and lightest interchangeable-lens camera to date! At 22.5mm and weighing only 158g, the NX Mini is definitely easy to slip into a clutch for a night out, and lightweight enough to take around while travelling. The only complaint I have would be the fact that there is no protection for the lens (no lens cap), and no case. Hopefully they'll introduce a good camera case for it though!
