Leading a new ‘wefie’ trend with the world’s slimmest and lightest interchangeable-lens
Samsung Electronics Singapore announced the launch of the NX mini, the world’s slimmest and lightest interchangeable-lens camera* in Singapore. The portable and stylish design of the NX mini SMART Camera, along with its stunning image quality, makes it the “go-to” device for great photography, allowing users to capture special moments in stunning detail.
With NFC and Wi-Fi® capabilities, it allows users to take impressive shots that can then be shared quickly and easily, for friends to enjoy in real time.
Portable, Stylish and Functional – Perfect for Any Occasion
As the slimmest and lightest interchangeable-lens camera on the market*, the NX mini is the ultimate way to capture life on the go without any hassle. Weighing only 158g (body only) and sporting an ultra slim (22.5mm) design, the NX mini can easily slip into almost any pocket or bag, yet still deliver the powerful results passionate photographers demand. The camera features a solid premium metal body with a luxurious leatherette finish, making the camera the natural choice for style-conscious photographers looking to make a statement. Available in four different colours (white, pink, mint green and brown) in Singapore, users can choose the colour that best suits their style.
The ‘selfie’ has found a permanent place in vocabularies across the world in recent years and its popularity shows no sign of stopping. The word ‘wefie’ has entered the urban dictionary as a photo taken in the same fashion as a selfie, but with two or more people and Samsung is poised to lead this trend with the NX mini.
Reflecting this recent consumer trend, the NX mini has a range of exclusive features which allow photographers to effortlessly indulge in the global trend of self-shooting. With a 75.2mm (3.0-inch) Flip up and Touch Display that flips 180-degrees and an ultra-slim 9mm wide angle lens, users can frame images of themselves perfectly, capture group shots from an arm’s length away and easily be part of group memories. The NX mini’s powerful optical performance delivers high quality images that are crisp and clear, ensuring that subjects in the photos are always looking their best.
Despite its slim appearance, the NX mini packs a big performance in its small body. Its large 1-inch type 20.5MP BSI CMOS Sensor enables users to capture high quality images, ensuring no details are missed. With its high resolution, pictures captured with the NX mini burst with vivid colour.
Specialised NX-M Lenses for NX mini
Samsung has introduced three NX mini lenses (NX-M) which are optimised for use with the NX mini body, providing a variety of options to meet individual shooting preferences.
• The NX-M 9mm F3.5 ED lens has an ultra-slim design and its wide angle makes it the ideal choice for those capturing landscapes and self-portraits. This lens also provides the optimum angle for taking selfies, ensuring the camera becomes the go-to choice for those looking to share the best of themselves.
• The NX-M 9-27mm F3.5-5.6 ED OIS lens is a micro-compact zoom lens with a stylish design and is small enough to comfortably fit in pockets and bags. This compact-sized standard zoom lens offers a variety of shooting options from wide-angle to telephoto shots, with optical image stabilization for sharp results.
• With the NX-M 17mm F1.8 OIS lens, photographers can enjoy a beautiful bokeh effect which makes the highly detailed subject stand out from the surroundings. NX mini owners will also be able to use 15 NX lenses with the device by using a specialised NX-M Mount Adapter (ED-MA4NXM). These lenses are sold separately.
