Get Ready to Selfie and Wefie with Samsung NX Mini! ❤

Finally it's here!!! We had the opportunity to shoot outstanding images in style with Samsung's slimmest interchangeable-lens camera! Introducing the Samsung NX Mini, which is the slimmest and lightest interchangeable-lens camera to-date. Last Saturday, thanks to Manoah and Samsung, 30 bloggers were invited to attend this photo shooting marathon around KL area. 


We gathered at Jeneris Café at Nu Sentral at 9.30 am and all of us were given t-shirts to be worn during the photo marathon. I was so excited when all of us were given a unit of Samsung NX Mini Smart Camera to go for photoshooting around Pasar Seni KL. We were divided into 3 groups which required us to take photoshooting according to different themes. The themes are Historical Buildings, Gastronomical Food and Sights & Sounds. I was placed in the group of Historical Buildings and my partner in crime was Edazz.

 

All of us including the Samsung and Manoah crew were walking together to the KL Sentral station to board the LRT. We felt like going for a school trip because all of us dressed in the same outfit. *heheh* Koey, Angeline, Calista, Sandy, Edazz and I walked in a team to look for historical buildings around Pasar Seni LRT. There were many historical buildings around the area but just due to time constraint, we did not capture all of them.

 
 Edazz was looking excited with her new NX Mini and photo marathon. :P

 As all of us were carrying the NX mini around, we were more excited than kids because I can finally make use of the camera to selfie. With a 75.2 mm (3.0 inch) flip-up and touch display that rotates 180-degrees, I can actually selfie perfectly with my friends that day.  (:

Photos taken with my pretty bloggers using NX Mini. (:

With the awesome feature of Smile and Wink Shot, they do make our self-shooting photo easier. I do not have to click to the camera button to snap my selfie. Instead when you smile, it will automatically capture your photo after 2 seconds without having to press any button. The same thing goes to the Wink Shot too except that my eyes are too small and cannot be detected by the camera when I winked. LOL!

Beauty mode in the NX Mini camera made my skin looked flawless. (:

NX Mini also has a feature such as wide angle lens exclusively designed to address the global passion for selfie queen like me. Weighing 158 g (body only) and sporting an ultra slim (22.5 mm) design, the NX mini can easily slip into almost any pocket or bag yet still delivers the powerful results passionate photographers demand. All the photos that were taken were pretty because it has a beauty mode function in the camera.

Samsung NX Mini can capture group shots from an arm's length. You can see that we are still able to fit at least 2 to 3 more people in the photo. (:

 With the lovely Calista (:

Despite its slim appearance, the NX mini packs a big performance into its small body. Its large 1-inch type 20.5MP BCI CMOS Sensor enables users to capture high quality images, ensuring no details are missed. With the highest resolution in its class, pictures captured with the NX Mini burst with vivid color.






The NX Mini's impressively fast 6fps continuous shot mode allows photographers to take continuous shots, so every detail can be captured and no moments are missed. The fast 1/160000 sec shutter speed freezes fast moving scenes, allowing for the dramatic capture of motion in crisp detail, without blurring.

Using continuous mode to select the best jump shot. (:

Photo with Don. He rocks! #DonTheHistoricalBuilding

We were only given one hour to capture photos according to our theme and all of us were feeling hungry after that. We took LRT to KLCC LRT station to have our lunch at Johnny Rockets. Johnny Rocket's staffs were so friendly and ready to help. They even perform and dance to the old time disco tracks. So cute! :D


Here's the Grilled Chicken Sandwich which I ordered. The portion is so big that I could not finish it. =/

I can't help but to keep smiling when I looked at the smiley ketchup. (:


We did not know that there was a contest going on. Eventually each of us had to come up with 3 best shots taken using NX Mini and posted them in Instagram and put on a hashtag #MyNXMini. The NX Mini features advanced WiFi and NFC integration that makes it seamless to share images. Exclusive to Samsung, Tag & Go connectivity allows the NX Mini to pair with NFC-enabled devices, such as smartphones or tables, simply by touching the two together. I used the NFC function to transfer the photos to my phone the other day and uploaded them in my Instagram immediately. So damn fast and easy!

There were too many awesome photos to be selected by the Samsung crew and out of the 90 photos, they had to select one best shot and the best photo would be announced as winner.


Congratulations to Kifli for winning the new Samsung NX Mini! He also got to pick the colour of his choice and he chose the green one which is my favourite color! *drool*


Samsung NX Mini's retail price is at RM1399 and is available in 5 different colours (white, pink, mint green, brown and black). My favourite colour would be mint green! :P *hint hint* Time to go #selfie and #wefie with my new Samsung NX Mini! (:

#Selfie with my #myNXMini. (:


Thank you Manoah and Samsung for the awesome photo marathon and stay tuned to my next review on the new Samsung NX Mini! ! (:
