Samsung Android-based Galaxy Camera
The Android-based Samsung Galaxy Camera packs a host of features which will impress even the most pretentious gadget freaks:
Full-HD video capture, 120fps slow motion mode, HDR and night shot features, 16.3MP backlight-illuminated CMOS sensor, continuous shooting and bracketing, 1.4 GHz Quad-core processor, Wi-Fi, 3G or 4G, GPS. The list goes on and on. You can even play Angry Birds on this camera!
The only thing that this camera does not do is… well, we’ll get to that a little later.
Log into Google Play and you can download thousands of fun stuff to the Galaxy Camera. This is not just a point-and-shooter, this is a proper mobile device. Take it anywhere with you and it will take you anywhere. We said that.
The list of features are simply too long to discuss here. For that, you can see depreview.com’s technically indepth and as-always-honest review of the Samsung Galaxy Camera. AndroidCentral also has the high-and-why on this little looker. And what a looker it is!
It is a camera-phone or is it a phone-camera?
The Samsung Galaxy Camera almost blurs the line between phone and camera. Almost. But not quite. For example, cellphones are now the primary personal time teller, having stolen that (profitable) role from the humble watch some years ago. But it hasn’t replaced luxury watches yet – however overpriced they are. In the same way, a good smartphone with a good-ish camera is hard to beat. Even so, you gotta love that Galaxy Camera mobile phone-like Android screen.
No gadget can be all things to all people.
So, what does the Samsung Galaxy Camera NOT do? It can connect just about anything anywhere. Connect to Facebook and Twitter. Download the Skype app and communicate endlessly with your mother-in-law. This camera will wake you up in the morning… but it can’t serve you marmalade toast. That’s about the only thing it can’t do yet. But soon there will probably be an Android app for that.
