Samsung NX Mini Review

Lightweight and Modern

The Samsung NX Mini camera is an ultra slim and lightweight camera to be carried around anywhere you want, making it a perfect tool for anyone looking to make daily vlogs of their daily lifestyle. The camera looks sleek and modern in all its available colors, as the camera has a solid metal body bound by leather like material for a modern and elegant look.

Fast Shutter Speed

The shutter speed is of 1/16000 second, making this camera extremely suitable for vlogging in motion. You can even capture a bird taking flight or a racing car on the go with this camera. You can shoot continuously at 6 frames per second (FPS) for getting blur free clear shots of fast moving objects.

Wide ISO Range

The Samsung NX Mini review will like to add that this camera shoots up to ISO 25600 which means the camera is very sensitive to light. You can snap photos and videos even in low light conditions, thanks to this, with minimal noise and blurring.

Adding Lenses

The camera comes with a portable sharp and pancake thin lens with a 9 mm focal length to get great wide angle field of the view. You can shoot anywhere from landscapes to street with the help of this added lens.

It is possible to add any other NX lenses sold separately with the NX M mount and the included adapter to make your shooting experience more dynamic and versatile.

Control from a Distance

It is possible to use the Remote ViewFinder app on selected smartphones to turn your phone into a viewfinder. It is possible to control your camera from up to 30 feet away and tag shot locations, adjust camera settings, preview images etc. If you want to take a group shot with yourself included on it, the Remote ViewFinder can be used to do so easily.

Send Files with Mobile Link

Even though this camera is Wi-Fi enabled, you can send files even without a Wi-Fi signal based on the NFC technology. The Mobile Link app enables you to send photos to a selected smartphone or tablet without having to send said photos through an email or text message. This app is also helpful for managing the photos on your smartphone and saving the changes automatically to the camera.

Saving Photos with AutoShare

The AutoShare feature is good to send photos at an instant to any NFC enabled smartphone or tablet while you are shooting them through a Wi-Fi connection. The Samsung NX Mini review would like to add that this app makes it easy to share and back up your photos no matter where you are, as long as you are connected to a Wi-Fi.

Editing Photos

The Samsung NX camera comes equipped with a 30 day period for using and editing your photos to enhance their quality by using the Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 5 software. You can bring out the details in your photos, making them look more professional and crisp. The software also lets you make adjustments and edit you video clips to trim them or turn them into still images. The software can organize photos by location with the GPS tagging system as well. Like the Samsung NX Mini review mentioned earlier, this camera is from the future and equipped with all the latest technologies. Too bad this particular utility lasts only for 30 days.

Baby Monitor

Yes, you can use the Samsung Ns camera to monitor your baby if it wakes up and cries. You need to install Samsung’s Home Monitor app on your smartphone to get this facility on your phone. When the app is on, if your baby wakes up and cries, you will immediately get a notification indicating so on your phone. The Samsung NX Mini review thinks it is a great added benefit which is rare to be found in a camera intended for taking photos and recording videos.
