Samsung's new NX camera is perfect for selfies

The leaks were true, and the Samsung NX camera has been made official by Samsung. It is an extremely compact camera that features a very thin design and a very light body weight of 196g which is equivalent to a large smartphone. Of course, additional weight will be added up by one of the three special NX-M lenses available: a 9mm f3.5, 9-27mm f3.5-f5.6 OIS and 17mm f1.8 OIS. 

Samsung just announced the NX Mini, a new addition to its growing portfolio of mirrorless cameras. It’s a device that the company hopes consumers will take with them anywhere and everywhere. And that shouldn’t be a problem — at least when it comes to size. “This could easily fit into your pocket,” is a popular line among Samsung executives when describing the camera. That’s especially true thanks to a minuscule 9mm f/3.5 (24mm-equivalent) lens that is one of two kit options for the 20-megapixel camera ($449); the other includes a new 9-27mm (24-73mm-equivalent) zoom lens and external flash ($549). The camera itself features a 1-inch sensor, the same size as found in Sony’s RX100 and Nikon’s 1 series, which also helps to make it among the thinnest on the market at 0.88 inches.
