Samsung May be Planning a Miniature Mirrorless Camera

By Gerald Lynch on at

Want a mirrorless camera, but don't want to lug a hulking DSLR-sized body around with you? Then Samsung's rumoured NX Mini could be a literal weight off your shoulders.

It's said to be the company's first compact mirrorless camera, making use of a one-inch sensor as opposed to the APS-C sized sensors inside its current CSC range. Even with a shrunken sensor and body however, the camera is rumoured to be compatible with small interchangeable lenses, including 9mm fixed prime lens and 9-27mm standard zoom lenses. Existing Samsung NX lenses would likely require an adapter however.

As suggested by the leaked shot above, a 3-inch tilting screen would sit on the rear, while full HD video recording, microSD card storage and an ISO range of 160 to 12800 is also tipped for inclusion. Not sure about that pink casing though. [Engadget, Mirrorless Rumours]
