We have seen a large increase in the overall sales of cameras in the past decade be it the usual point and shoot cameras or DSLRs. Along the same time span, we have also witnessed an enormous rise in the smart phones market, with operating systems battling it out with each other to provide consumers excellent new technologies and features on their cell phones.
Samsung, as we know, is one of the biggest manufacturers of both cameras and smart phones. With the all-new Samsung Galaxy Camera, they are looking at giving their consumers best of both worlds – yes, a camera that runs on an Android operating system.
The Samsung Galaxy Camera is actually a startling point and shoot, 16 mega pixel camera which has a motorized 21x zoom along with a high quality 4.8 inch touchscreen to operate its Android 4.1 operating system. It also supports 3G and WiFi connectivity, so that enables you quickly share, send and upload your photographs anywhere immediately.
In spite of being all-plastic, the Samsung Galaxy Camera is extremely sturdy as well as light weight and easy to use with one hand. Although the sensor size, at 1/2.3” even though backlit it is pretty small and a worry when compare to other point and shoot cameras at this price range. With just about 3 inches tall, it is thick at 0.75 inches excluding the lens.
Moreover, when its 23 mm thick lens is fully extended that goes on to be around 3 inches itself. While the 4.8-inch 720p LCD screen has excellent colour reproduction abilities, it is probably the best display Samsung Galaxy Camera has come up with.
