The NX mini is the world's slimmest and lightest interchangeable-lens camera (as of 3/19/14). It's only 22.5mm thick, and with the diminutive 9mm prime it's well within the bounds of jacket-pocketability. The portable and stylish design of the SMART Camera NX mini, along with its stunning image quality makes it the “go-to” device for great photography, allowing users to capture special moments in stunning detail. With NFC and Wi-Fi capabilities, it allows users to take impressive shots that can then be shared quickly and easily, for friends to enjoy in real time.

NX Mini with legacy manual lenses?
I'm using a lot of old manual-focus lenses on Sony E/FE bodies, but I have some lenses where the 18mm flange distance is just too big -- so I'm very curious about the NX Mini. I've been designing and 3D printing my own lens adapters, so I'm not too worried about being able to mechanically fit these lenses on an NX-M mount, but a few questions: (1) Are there detailed specs for the NX-M mount anywhere? In particular, what is the flange distance? 3D printing allows me to make adapters by reverse engineering from a lens combined with trial and error about the flange distance, but I'd prefer to build from real specs.... (2) Is there any problem with using lenses that have no electronic coupling? For example, many ...
ad 1) the tech specs just list the dimensions : 27.5 x 69.5 x 57.5mm ad 2) there is no issue as such but I believe there will be similar PIN based solution in that NX-M adapter to detect the state= ens attached. (this is often an issue with low quality spec'd adapters preventing the NX to detect the lens) ad3) I have not seen anything other than the NX-M one Continue Reading
Just a bought a used NX Mini and it didnt come with LR5!?
Now I can't extract raw files. What to do? I do have Lightroom 4 (from my NX300) but it doesnt recognize the raw files from the Mini. It says file unavailable to preview or something like that. I was also told the NX Mini is not supported on LR4. I am also confused if the Mini comes with LR5 free or only a 30 day trial. Which one is true? I would appreciate any info from the experts here. Thanks!
new Mini's are shipped with LR5 and a key printed on the DVD sleeve so it seems that the seller did take out that part of the bundle. Option: you can use the Adobe DNG Converter and batch convert the SRW into DNG and open those in LR4 Continue Reading
Thanks a bunch tjobbe! You are a lifesaver! Just installed Adobe DNG converter 8.6 ( is this the latest version?) and it worked like a charm! Continue Reading
yes, typically the DNG converter versions are in line with the LR version (LR5.6 corresponds to DNG 8.6) whereas you do have the same Beta versions ready for use (I assume there is some 5.7 8.7 Beta out but I am not into trying them out) Note that you can run the DNG as either with or without embedding the original SRW file, as some believed that the DNG conversion wouldn't be 100% lossles Continue Reading
Three questions for those who have a NX Mini
Hello I have some questions for those who have a NX Mini. - Does it have that function, called "i-zoom" on the other NX, that crops the picture to simulate a zoom ? - I see its 9-27 lens only has one ring, can you focus manually with it, or does this ring only affect the zoom ? - A last question (related to my topic How good is the 20-50mm for close-up ? ), if I want to shot mostly both landscapes and bugs, should I take a NXMini with 9-27 or a NX2000 with 20-50 ? They are about the same price, 220€ for the NX2000 and 250€ for the NX Mini. Wide angle is 24mm on the 9-27 vs 31mm on the 20-50. Minimal focus distance is 14cm on the 9-27 vs 28cm on the 20-50. Anyway I would add a 3+ or 5+ close up lens on it for close up shots. 9-27 has stabilization, 20-50 doesn't. So, seems that the NX Mini would be a better option for me. But NX2000 has a way bigger sensor APS-C vs 1'', which should give better pictures. So I hesitate. What do you think ? Thanks.
Why not just crop the image in post? The result is exactly the same and you would (I assume) be post processing the images anyway. Continue Reading
I don't have the NX mini, but the manual for it is downloadable here: http://downloadcenter.samsung.com/content/UM/201406/20140627142325477/NX_mini_English.pdf It might help answer some of your questions. Continue Reading
