Samsung NX mini officially announced

Now that the Samsung N mini is officially announced I thought it would be interesting to compare it to some Nikon 1 cameras.


NX mini: 110 x 62 x 23 mm

V3: 111 x 65 x 33 mm

J3: 101 x 61 x 29 mm

So the NX mini is a bit thiner than the J3 and a bit wider than the J3. The V3 is 1cm thicker and a bit higher. I think it's save to say that all three cameras are practically the same size.


NX mini: 196 g

V3: 381 g

J3: 201 g

Only the V3 weights more in a way that is noticeable.

Battery life:

NX mini: 650 (impressive)

V3: 310

J3: 220

AF speed:

NX mini has CDAF

Nikon 1 has PDAF and CDAF

I think it's save to assume that the Nikon 1 cameras will have the faster AF.

I think the NX mini is an interesting camera, but it doesn't compete (directly) with the Nikon 1 system. It will be interesting to see how Nikon reacts to this, especially since the NX mini has a very aggressive price and offers things the J3 doesn't offer (tilt screen, WiFi).

I think it's a good thing that Nikon gets a bit of competition in the 1" sensor system camera game.
