Hi friends, today I’ll be talking about my dearest camera the Samsung NX mini with NX-M mount adapter. The Samsung NX mini came with the 9-27 mm lens. The first lens that I had got damage, good thing it was still under warranty. After some time the replacement gave up too. I do not really know the problem but it could be the way I handle my camera inside my bag. I only have the cloth pouch to protect it. That’s why I bought this camera case to really protect the camera when it’is inside my bag.
Instead of buying a new lens alone, I’d rather buy a new camera with lens that can also be used with my NX mini. Luckily, I found the NX 3000 camera Twin kit lens. It came with 16-50mm lens and 50-200mm lens. I bought it around $380. For me, it was a great deal because of the two lenses included in the package.
There’s not much difference between NX mini and NX 3000. One of the big difference is the touch screen that the NX mini have. I love the vintage design of the NX3000. They are both beautiful cameras for under $500.
In order to use the lenses from the NX3000 to NX Mini I have to buy an adapter. The Samsung NX mini lens is smaller than the NX Lens thus the need for an adapter. With this adapter, I can use any lens from the NX camera series.
I bought this adapter in e-bay. You can purchase it here. I was a bit hesitant to buy it in fear that it won’t work. It is working fine with my mini and I’ve never been this happy with its performance.
Top 4 reasons why I love these cameras:
1. Flip screen – very useful for travel, selfies and Youtube videos especially for make-up videos
2. Budget – less than $500 with a DSLR lens for the NX3000. The 9-27mm lens is not that bad too.
3. Light weight – easy to bring around.
4. Touch Screen – only for NX Mini.
