Samsung might be cooking up a new, smaller mirrorless camera called the NX mini. NX Rumors spotted a leaked image of the camera in Barbie pink along with a Powerpoint presentation detailing the specs. From what we can gather it seems the Samsung NX mini will target smaller mirrorless camera users with a body measuring less than 35mm thin. The future camera also seems to feature a flip up 3” screen that can bend forward a full 180-degrees.
According to the leaked presentation, the Samsung NX mini will feature a 20MP back-illuminated CMOS with a DRIMe 4 processor and will save images onto a microSD card. In terms of shooting capabilities it will be able to take an exposure as fast as 1/16000 second, sit between ISO 160-12800, record 1080p video at 30fps, and fire up to 22fps in continuous shooting mode. The leaked presentation also revealed two potential bundled lenses including a 9mm pancake lens and a 9-27mm zoom lens.
Samsung has recently been stepping up their camera game with the Samsung NX30 and Samsung Galaxy Camera 2, so we would put it past Samsung to make a mini version of the NX. Mirrorless Rumors posits we could see an official announcement in less than a month. Stay tuned until and check out some more images of the Samsung NX mini after the break.
Samsung has been making interesting moves in the in the photography world recently. Their NX cameras have all been really well designed and innovative so far. Along with these cameras, Samsung has also introduced some unusual but clever lenses. The 20mm f2.8 pancake lens is one of them: a small and simple wide-angle lens with an uncommon equivalent angle-of-view of 30mm. Read our review to find out how it fares in everyday use.
The Samsung NX30 mirrorless camera and the new Galaxy Camera 2 have been officially announced a while ago, but so far neither price nor availability of either camera had been disclosed. That is until today, when Samsung officially announced pricing and availibilty for both the NX30 and the Galaxy Camera 2.
Good news for those waiting for the NX30 to finally hit store shelves: the camera is available as of today in kit with the 18-55m lens for an MSRP of US-$ 999.99. Those craving for the Galaxy Camera 2 will have to hold out a little longer. The new Android-powered point-and-shoot will be available in March for an MSRP of US-$ 449.99.
In the meantime, you can take a closer look at both cameras in our hands-on reviews. That of the NX30 can be found here, and that of the Galaxy Camera 2 can be found here.
Now that CES 2014 is over, it’s time to take a look back at all the things that have been announced during the show. During our time in Vegas, we had the opportunity to take a closer look at some of the announcements: the Nikon D4S, the Panasonic/Leica Nocticron 42.5mm f1.2 lens, the new Nikon D3300 … and more. Here’s our recap of all the hot stuff presented at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show.
At CES 2014, Samsung is offering up two new cameras: the WB350F SMART Camera and the WB2200F SMART Camera. The WB350F has a 21x optical zoom, which will be great for social photographers. The dual-grip WB2200F has a 60x optical zoom, which will work nicely for wildlife and sports enthusiasts. These new point and shoots offer new functionality and flexibility for today’s photographers.
Samsung’s Galaxy Camera was an interesting concept when it was first introduced last year. For the first time, the company tried a fusion between a phone and a dedicated camera to try to solve a fundamental consumer problem. Now, they’re announcing the brand new Galaxy Cam 2.
And once again, it has a massive emphasis on connectivity.
