Samsung NX mini review – White balance and colour

Image: The camera’s slight tendency to lean towards red leaves greens lacking the same vibrancy as the warmer tones in images

The NX mini has a distinct tendency to lean towards warmer tones when given the opportunity, but in a standard day scene it can reproduce attractive blue skies. The issue I found with this camera’s warm tone bias is that whites and greens in particular tend to suffer and appear less vibrant than they should.

Setting the white balance is relatively easy and can be done by pressing the Fn button on the touchscreen to bring up all the available controls. Navigating through to the white balance setting, you will find seven options as well as auto, colour temperature and one slot for a custom white balance. Each setting, however, can be tweaked in seven steps along the amber, blue, green and magenta axes.
