Samsung Wants You to Ditch Your DSLR and Break a Selfie World Record

Get your duck faces ready, kids. On October 14, Samsung’ll be in Hollywood to take a record-breaking selfie with the hosts Nick Cannon and Julianne Hough. We’re not sure what the scope will be, but we imagine it’ll be many extended arms and pursed lips.

The company has an ambitious campaign to get you to ditch your DSLR in favor of the NX30 or the NX Mini SMART Camera. The campaign goes by #DITCHTHEDSLR, and it just wrapped its event in Times Square. If you’ve been thinking of switching systems, and you like what Samsung’s doing, this could be your chance to get a new camera by trading in your old one. You’ll need your camera, a lens and a battery in order to qualify for the trade-in.

Of course, the focus is the NX30 and NX Mini SMART Camera. We haven’t reviewed the latter, but we have reviewed the NX30. We found to be a capable mirrorless camera in the guise of a DSLR. With Samsung’s 85mm f1.4, the NX30’s image quality would shoot up.

The event starts at 10am at the Hollywood and Highland Center.
