The Samsung Galaxy Camera looks the business
Samsung have announced the Galaxy Camera in a move that puts them head to head with Nikon. The new point-and-shoot camera features a proper 21x zoom lens and a 16 megapixel sensor. Powered by the latest version of Google's OS, Jellybean, this looks like cutting edge stuff. Check out the press release below.
Shoot stunning quality images
The Galaxy Camera’s ‘Smart Pro’ feature makes it easy to recreate advanced photographic setups in just a few simple steps for stunning artistic results. Using the easy-to-navigate menu system, users can choose from a series of preset scenario options, which will automatically adjust the camera’s settings in order to capture the perfect photo. For example, the ‘Rich Tone’ setting delivers images with greater intensity – particularly effective for reducing overexposure in bright surroundings, while the ‘Light Trace’ setting automatically controls shutter speed for atmospheric night scenes full of light trails.
The Galaxy Camera’s 21x optical zoom can be controlled by either button or touchscreen, rendering long-distance pictures in a quality that users will be proud to share, while OIS ensures that images stay clear and crisp. The camera’s 16-Megapixel 1/2.3” BSI CMOS sensor captures images in brilliant colour and resolution, while the 23mm aperture lens delivers impressive wide-angle shots incomparable to smartphone pictures.
Enjoy your photos and video on a world-leading display
The Galaxy Camera boasts the world’s largest and most vivid camera display - a 121.2 mm (4.77inch) HD Super Clear LCD screen, which makes it a pleasure to shoot, share and edit images from the palm of the hand. Another advantage of smartphone technology is the Voice Control option, which allows the user to control a number of functions such as ‘Zoom in’ and ‘Shoot’ through voice. All these features are housed in a beautifully designed, ergonomic body with the Galaxy Camera’s minimal, organic design complementing its easy-to-use professional features.
Edit and perfect images on your device
The Galaxy Camera includes a comprehensive set of 35 powerful photo editing features through the ‘Photo Wizard’, allowing users to make professional quality edits on the go. The new features take advantage of the ultrafast quad-core processor and HD Super Clear LCD, giving access to a feature like Auto Face Calibration so edits can be made in precise detail and with ease. The ‘Movie Wizard’ also allows users to create and edit expert quality videos easily from the touch screen.
The Galaxy Camera also features ‘Smart Content Manager’, an innovative on-device organisation tool which intelligently creates folders, tags faces, and even suggests which pictures to delete when they don’t come out as desired. Thanks to the combination of wireless connectivity and Android™ 4.1 Jelly Bean OS, the internet capabilities of the Galaxy Camera are equal to those of the latest smartphone so that users can get even more enjoyment out of their device. In addition to the pre-installed applications from Samsung, users can browse the web and enjoy any applications from Google Play or Samsung Apps stores, such as Instagram, Facebook, and Skype. If users are not sure which app to download, a user can use ‘S Suggest’, to help them discover a new photo editing app or fun game to download.
Share your images anywhere, anytime
The camera’s convenient ‘Auto Cloud Backup’ feature will also automatically save precious photos into the cloud via Samsung’s AllShare the instant they are taken. The Galaxy Camera also allows users to share photos at the same time as they shoot them with ‘Share Shot.’ As well as sharing to social networks and cloud services users can also connect to a range of Galaxy devices including the Galaxy SIII and Galaxy Note II for effortless and automatic sharing of pictures across the Galaxy family. The new device enables connection to 3G or 4G , allowing photo sharing and browsing anywhere. The Galaxy Camera also functions on Wi-Fi with Dual Band and Channel Bonding for extra speed. Connectivity is supported by a quad-core processor that enables fast web browsing and multi-tasking, as well as high-speed image processing without a significant impact on battery life.
