In this week's news, Samsung has unveiled the NX Mini, a new compact designed to make selfies 'effortless' thanks to a 3in flip-up touchscreen display and a new 'Wink' mode.

Elsewhere, the Kodak brand continues its attempt at a rise from the ashes with the new S-1. However, given that the interchangeable lens camera has failed to win any interest from UK retailers, a true resurrection could be a way off yet.

We also examine what the Hungarian government's new photo legislation could mean for British tourists taking pictures in the country.

Finally, a camera that helps you secretly photograph people while they sleep? Inspired by the NX Mini's 'Wink' function, we take a look at six of the most bizarre, inappropriate and misguided shooting modes we've ever seen on digital cameras.

That's all for this week.
