Samsung NX mini review: a $450 mirrorless cam that fits in your pocket

 

It's been a long journey, but Samsung's managed to build out a compelling camera lineup that has something for everyone. Pros can get the high-end NX30;

Incredibly compact ; Dedicated selfie mode ; Easy-to-use WiFi sharing ; Decent battery life

Smaller 1-inch sensor ; Few physical controls ; Limited lens selection

Samsung's NX mini is cheap, pocketable and a lot of fun to shoot with.

Samsung NX Mini review

 

Samsung gets the cheers for designing an incredibly small interchangeable lens camera, and it'll fill a niche with select customers, especially the selfie generation. Photographically, it isn't strong enough to replace cameras with larger sensors.

When we first previewed pre-production samples of the NX Mini, we were blown away by the concept and the size, and thought Samsung could be onto something. The one thing we couldn’t test at the time was image quality. Now that we’ve had one to play...

Samsung NX mini Review

 

Samsung has a history of trying something unexpected every once in a while. This is the company that gave us the Dual View series - point-and-shoots with small secondary LCDs on the front panel - as well as the first cameras to run full Android...

The NX Mini sits at that slightly awkward point between luxury compacts and entry-level micro four-thirds systems — not alone, of course, but awkward nonetheless.

Samsung NX Mini

 

The Samsung NX Mini is a tiny, Wi-Fi-connected mirrorless camera that runs circles around smartphones, but manual control is a bit of a chore.

Excellent Wi-Fi implementation. Slim design. Tilting touch-screen display. Sharp image output. Good high ISO performance. 10fps burst capture.

Limited physical controls. A little slow to focus in dim light. Poky startup speed. Limited lens library. External battery charger not included.

Samsung is the class leader when it comes to in-camera Wi-Fi, and the NX Mini is no exception. It can pair with a phone or tablet via NFC or a standard Wi-Fi connection, so you can copy images and videos over using the free Samsung Smart Camera app for...

Samsung NX Mini: Small and stylish camera

 

The company's new camera is intended to give casual photographers better photo quality than a phone, but interchangeable lenses may not be the way to go.

Samsung NX Mini

 

This small Wi-Fi camera has a flip-up "selfie" LCD, but offers few native lenses. Auto focus is a little lazy, and low-light performance is so-so - but burst modes go gangbusters. If you only take simple shots, you will enjoy the otherwise high image...

Kit lenses offer narrow zoom range ; Minimal lens offerings (two official options at the time of this review) ; Auto focus can be slow and inaccurate ; Manual focus is awkward ; No thumb dial to ease navigation ; Built-in flash is weak ; External flash...

Samsung NX mini Review

 

Compact system cameras pack DSLR image quality and lens flexibility into more pocketable packaging, but what if a regular CSC setup is still too bulky? Enter the NX mini. This lives up to its name by being the slimmest and lightest CSC to date and it's...

To some extent the Samsung NX mini will always be a balance of compromise. Its small size means you get a smaller than average sensor for a CSC, which in turn adversely affects image quality. Fortunately this isn't severely reduced and is certainly a...

We really liked the design and build quality of the NX-mini. It is not all weather proof but because of the fox leather is looks amazing. It is very compact and easily compatible. Because of its light weight you can shoot pictures whole day single...
