Samsung NX Mini Photo Marathon

Samsung NX Mini Smart Camera, Photo Marathon Challenge

Hey! I prefer to use compact camera than the bulky and heavy DSLR. I like it because it’s light, small and handy but not all compact cameras take good quality pictures. Recently I have a chance to review the newly launched Samsung NX Mini Smart Camera. This is the slimmest (depth 22.5mm) and lightest (weight 158g) interchangeable lens camera till today. Awesome! Last Saturday was my first attempt playing and using the NX Mini Smart Camera during the Photo Marathon Challenge

About 30 bloggers gathered at the Jeneris Café @ Nu Sentral, KL Sentral and collected our NX Mini review unit.

My first impression on the NX Mini, yes indeed is it very light. I can easily carry and stabilize while taking pictures with just 1 hand. The NX Mini size just fit nicely on my palm. The colour that everyone got that day is white, quite cool and stylish. What I like about this camera is the 3.0 inch flip up and touch display that rotates 180 degrees and wide angle lens that is perfect for selfie.

After the briefing we were split into 3 groups according to the theme Sound & Sights, Gastronomic Delights and Malaysia Historical Buildings. Guess what is my theme? My theme for that day was Malaysia Historical Buildings and Alicia Tan was my partner for this photo marathon. We were all set and geared to go for the NX Mini Photo Marathon Challenge.

This is the camera that I find perfect for people constantly on the go at the same time need to take good quality pictures plus shared it immediately on social media. It is so small that I can slip into my pocket and take it anywhere and everywhere without sacrificing the image quality. The large 1-inch type 20.5MP BSI CMOS Sensor captured vivid, sharp and crisp clear images.
