    Its a Samsung and that is enough to not consider unless its something like £10, I just do not get on with their products they always give me grief and I know others love them and have stirling service perhaps its a curse. Besides µ43 well established system with a good choice of lenses the best choice in the mirror less arena.

    According to rumor the colors will be black, white, brown, mint, and pink.

    Not surprising, a lot of small cameras have been done in colors like that. There were event pink MFT cameras.

    Agree. They cut corners and do not support their customers. I've been burned twice. Funniest was a friend of mine wanted a replacement battery cover for his phone. They don't sell them, you have to buy a new phone. I thought my friend wasn't applying himself. I followed up and go the same response!

    I guess this sums up the main target market.

    Probably the same people who are buying the Nikon 1 and the Pentax Q. Though the black/silver and brown/silver combos are a nod toward the retro look, so people who like the Fuji XF1 and XQ1 might be interested.

    Probably some overlap with MFT customers too -- an alternative to the GM1 or PM2 for people moving up from compacts.

    The price will be interesting to see -- I've always felt the Nikon 1 was overpriced.

    I take this doesn't come with any smart features like the NX3000, i.e. direct uploading from the camera.

    Aiming for the ladies! That is actually a good thing for Asian markets at least where females buy most of the smaller ILC cameras - the Nikon 1 and Pentax Q are huge with the gals over there{both come in wild colors too!}.

    My wife bought NX Mini with 9mm pancake. I tested it a little bit last night and must say i am surprised how good it really is.

    First is heavy crop

    I am a bit surprised how pleasing the colors are, what was the ISO set at? How is the handling and interface?

    Hi, ISO was set to 160 for all photos, which i guess is the lowest. Handling is okay, but better than as might be expected. I shot mostly P mode simply because there is not that much wheels or buttons where to change aperture or shutter etc, so P mode seemed appropriate for this type of camera and only thing is adjust the exposure compensation. I also let the camera decide the AF points. All photos are shot in RAW and processed in Lightroom 5. (Which btw came with this camera!)

    So shooting with NX Mini can be pretty simple and easy. Great IQ and small body, small lenses, perfect camera for carry around every day. Looking forward to get the new 17mm 1.8 (~50mm) Just wondering when it is available and what is the price going to be...
     
  13. It is a nice touch that the Samsung NX cameras come with a copy of Lightroom. I didn't think that the NX Mini would have it also!
