So do you still remember that I'd blogged about my latest new toy addition, Samsung NX Mini (link 'HERE')? I have been addicted playing and using it for couple of weeks till now. The main reason why I love bringing this camera out because is pocket-friendly, the quality outcome of picture is good and mirrorless 'flip-up' design. The convenient of selfie is the most important part, LOL. Yet, the another special part that Samsung NX Mini is a mirrorless interchangeable lens camera.
