Wink and Shoot!

I'm pretty sure everyone must have jump on the selfie bandwagon (at least once, don't you dare to lie) before or some might be still under the selfie fever ever since it existed. It's a word we hear so often these days that it was announced being the word of the year and made into the online version of the Oxford English Dictionary last year. No, I'm not gonna talk about the history of selfie and its evolution but I'm gonna talk about the ultimate selfie machine. Yes, it's the Samsung NX Mini that brings selfie to a whole new level! Like I mentioned before in my previous post, The NX Mini has three ways to activate a selfie: normal mode, smile shot and the wink shot. 

On normal mode, you will need to press the shutter to capture a selfie or you can have a 3 seconds countdown timer set, so you can quickly prime yourself for a selfie shot. The smile shot captures instantly when it detects a big, cheesy smile! Even if there's only one person smiling among a bunch of people frowning in the background. That is definitely my friends' favourite mode but it can be tricky sometimes cause everyone have to smile at the same time or else it could have fire off early when it detects one of them smiling while others are still preparing themselves. You have no idea how many funny photos I get from this shot. 

Last but not least, the wink mode that I love the most! Once it detects a wink, it will start on a 3 seconds countdown timer as well and capture your wink shot. It's not as sensitive as the smile shot, but it still work most of the time for me. The downside is that it wouldn't detect your wink if you're wearing glasses. 

Alright, time to put the wink shot into test! 

Flip over the screen and it will automatically be on the self mode.
Click on the face detection and choose the wink mode. 
Give in your cutest wink pose and wait for it to capture automatically after two seconds.
No button required, just a wink will do (;
Smile is optional but I'm sure you don't wanna look like you had a face paralysis HEH

Maintaining a flattering pose while attempting to press the shutter button when one is selfie-ing can be challenging unless you're the selfie queen, but the NX mini's wink mode sure makes it easy peasy! Who knows they may come out with more interesting modes in the future, like a duck face mode HAHAHA 

Before I head back to studying and preparing for finals, let me take a selfie ƪ(˘⌣˘)ʃ
Now this is the toothache pose -- it makes your face looks slimmer without the use of photoshop and yes, I was trying to act cute :P 

Till then, have an awesome weekend ahead!
