Samsung Galaxy Camera


The highlight in yesterday’s Samsung Mobile Unpacked Event 2012 in IFA, Berlin seems to be the new Galaxy Camera running on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean OS and full mobile connectivity.

With smartphones becoming more and more like cameras the innovative Galaxy Camera came as their natural evolution turning heads on Wednesday night at the Tempodrom Venue.

The Galaxy Camera is 16.3 megapixels with a 21x optical zoom, features a 4.77-inch HD Super Clear LCD 308ppi screen that makes looking at your photos easy, 3G WiFi or 4G WiFi connectivity, an Exynos 1.4GHz quad-core processor,  8GB of storage, a micro SD cards slot to expand its memory and a 1650mAh battery.

What is also very impressive about the Galaxy Camera is the software it comes packed with that allows the user to tag photos (just like Galaxy SIII users can already do), organise their photos or videos into folders without needing a computer and uploading them to Samsung‘s cloud service, sharing them directly on their Galaxy SIII or Samsung Galaxy Note II and most important of all instantly posting to Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or more!  You can add text to your pictures by using the pop-up keyboard (just like you do on your smartphone) and among other features there are also Voice Control and Share Shot that can send your images to other devices in real time over WiFi Direct.

The camera is addressed to both amateur and hobbist photographers as you can choose between having full control of the shutter speed, exposure values, ISO etc or many different pre-set modes to choose from.

Looking at the Galaxy Camera from the front you will see a long lens and a comfortable handgrip but turning it the other side you will feel as if you are looking at a smartphone as the back pane is entirely covered by the 4.77′ touch screen making buttons obsolete.

It should be easy to use for anyone using the Android OS already and with the boom of photography in Social Media (put the blame on instagram for that) the Galaxy Camera is soon going to find its way in our bags (not our pockets as it’s quite chunky (128.7mm x 70.8mm x 19.1mm) and rather heavy (305 grams).

And just as officially announced it does use Corning Gorilla Glass 2!

All in all, it is certainly an innovative device that could be setting the standards for other companies to reach and will probably be successfull with Social Media Maniacs.  Unfortunately, even that friend of yours who loves taking pictures, uploading them on Facebook and tagging you even in your most uncomfortable poses.

PS The mode I loved the best is the Slow Mode recording of videos that lets you shoot videos in slow motion!

  1. Being part of the capitalist system having all the best gadgets is the
    nature of the beast. Don’t you remember the westerns
    on TV in the 80’s and 90’s where you knew who the chief was by the headdress he wore.
    It is no different today except the have nots tend to be a little
    more vocal with their situation. Enough of that,
    this week the hotest 2 products are the portable
    ice maker and the homemade ice-cream maker. This was because of the hot, hot weather on the
    east coast.

    Jelly sandwiches in the sandwich maker are
    great. It’s like having jelly on toast. Just simply make
    you a jelly sandwich and place it in the maker for two to banner maker
    three minutes.

    Take the ice storage tray out and then dump the water (melted
    ice) out of it. Properly wash and clean the tray with dishwashing liquid and warm water.

    A little research might be needed from your part if you have decided to place your ad on a website.
    Search for keywords that are relevant to your product and try
    to get a knowhow as to which website will people visit.
    Check if they accept banner ads. Before that, make sure that they do not place too many ads on their website because your ad
    might be unnoticed between many other ads. If you are planning to get to the top position to
    place your ad then you might neglect the above point.

    If you need to create a banner ad, one of the best programs around is called Banner Maker Pro.

    This program will animate banners, add effects, and can insert shapes,
    text and pictures easily.
