To make it more easily comparable for the lot of you, we are going to break down the comparison between these two irresistable selfie cameras and perhaps that way everyone can better understand the main features and probably help make decisions more easily.
Casio Exilim TR35 features:
The recently released Casio selfie camera features functions that bring the appeal of photography a few steps further by expanding the spectrum of expression of oneself possible through selfie photos. Amongst the many functions, the Posing-Shot function is one of the most favoured that takes up to five continuous shots while providing voice guidance for each shot, enabling you to take selfies while switching from one pose to the other like a model and by adding some visual effects you can share your selfie shots on you social media accounts like Facebook and Twitter.
The Casio Exilim TR35 also comes with a burst mode function like the DSLRs that guarantees at least one of the burst mode photos taken has the eyes open, they call it the Triple Shot function. The Triple Shot function helps to avoid blinking by the subject to produce great photos, it is ideal for group photos so that everyone will look stunning in the photo altogether without having to check the images after every shot taken.
The Make-Up mode is perhaps the most important feature here, ignoring this feature is a sin that ensures great skin complex and skincolour tones! Another great thing about the Casio TR35 is that you have the ability to control remotely with your smartphone and have the captured photo immediately transferred to your smartphone which is a new versatility added to your typical photographic experience. These features can be broadly applied for everything from selfies to group photos, this camera will work its miracles on your photos.
Now a little onto the physical aspects of this camera. The Casio Exilim TR35 uses a special polarized coating along with an elegantly curved body, depending on your surrounding lightings and environment, the unique design of the camera may look very different from what you usually see it to be. It is sleek and pocket sized but not as small as the Canon Powershot N100 unfortunately.
Samsung NX Mini:
The Samsung NX Mini is a tiny, interchangeable lens camera with a one-inch sensor packing a mass amount of 20.5 megapixels. That is a specification that you would typically see on a DSLR like the Nikon D5100 and Canon 1100D. It uses a new lens mount called NX-M, and currently this camera is comes with a 9mm Samsung Lens that covers a wooping 100 degrees field of view allowing you to snap amazing selfie photos with just at arms length. Compared to the more traditional form of digital cameras, the Samsung NX Mini can basically do everything digital cameras can do these days—Wi-Fi connectivity, Full HD video recording & optical image stabilization.
At the time of launch, the NX Mini is the slimmest and lightest digital system compact camera in the world with just a featherweight of158grams and a thickness of only 22.5m, you can say it is perhaps “the” ideal selfie camera out there today. As it shares the same sensor type, the Sony RX100 II comes in a likely competitor but the Sony RX camera exudes a rugged impression making it less appealing for the ladies but does not fall behind in terms of image quality and functions. Now lets look into the physical aspects, the NX Mini is straight, clean lines and a simple layout emphasize the NX Mini’s slim profile. On the front you have the tiny lens protruding shyly but beautifully off-setting slightly to the right, while leather grip can be in white, black, pink, brown, and a sort of seafoam green. On the back of the Samsung NX Mini is the very well-executed flip-out LCD screen that lets you flip it up 180 degrees and snap the perfect selfie. This feature has suffered from poor design on many cameras, but Samsung nailed it with the NX Mini.
For a budget of RM 3,799 to purchase the Casio Exilim TR35, you can buy a very decent DSLR camera, in fact you might be purchasing an intermediate range of DSLR camera like the Nikon D5300. A Nikon D5300 with its standard kit 18-55mm lens would in fact leave you some extra money to decent Nikon 50mm lens, the Nikon 50mm F1.8G Autofocus Nikkor Lens might actually be the lens that finishes up the balance! Some might even wonder why anyone would be spending so much for a compact camera; well that is what Casio is going for, selfie lovers. Casio have included beauty modes (such as the Make-up Mode) and other brightening modes that would appeal very well for the ladies. Perhaps this will answer anyone’s question as to why this selfie camea is just a big hit. On recent video reviews, even the men seemed to like the picture quality for this selfie camera, with a little editing perhaps?
