Pocket Sized Samsung NX Mini is World's Slimmest ILC


Samsung’s latest interchangeable-lens camera sets its priority on styling, compact size, and connectivity. Samsung NX Mini claims to be the best selfie camera by the way.

The company unwrapped the details of the NX Mini and claims the title of "the world’s thinnest CSC (compact system camera)"  The claim by Panasonic for the world's smallest ILC stays unchallenged for now.
The GM1 is in fact smaller in length and width.

One thing NX Mini has in common other than being tiny is that both cameras place heavy emphasis on the styling. The NX Mini is out to capture the hearts and minds of fashionable, folks who want to step up from a smartphone but don’t want to lug around a DSLR or larger mirrorless camera.

The camera features 20.5 megapixel BSI CMOS sensor. It's practically same spec as the king-of-the-pocket Sony RX100 Mark II . However, NX Mini features switchable lenses unlike RX100.  That truly sets NX Mini apart from many of the competing camera model currently available in the market.

So how thin is the camera? Its body measures slightly less than 1 inch thick and weighs a mere 5.6 ounces. The NX Mini could be mistaken for a budget compact camera with fixed lens.

Samsung has decided to redesign the user interface to be simple and easy to operate, contrasting from UI found in its current NX series.

The NX Mini uses a smaller 1-inch back-illuminated sensor which is slightly smaller than a Micro Four Thirds sensor. However, it’s a much larger sensor than what you’d normally find in most compact pocket point-and-shoot cameras.

Theoretically, it will produce much better images than most compact cameras and smartphone, but we will have to wait to see the real life samples.  Stay tuned for more updates.
