Samsung Galaxy Camera EK-GC100 (Wi-Fi)

PC Magazine
4 July 2013
  • Conclusion: The Samsung Galaxy Camera combines the functions of a Android device and a dedicated camera quite well, letting you whisk your photos and videos to the Web instantly. But this first-gen design also shows room for improvement.
  • Pros: Gorgeous 4.8-inch display. Runs Instagram and other Android apps. Long 21x zoom range. Good high ISO performance. Wi-Fi.
  • Cons: Pricey. Big. Touch-based control system is unusual and unwieldy for a camera.

  • Excerpt: The Samsung Galaxy Camera is the second model to use the Android operating system, following last year's Nikon S800c , but the Galaxy Camera is the first to use the Android version 4.1; aka Jelly Bean. Samsung has done a good job of merging the features of a mid-range digital camera with the natural interface of a smartphone in creating the Galaxy Camera, which makes it very easy to share photographs immediately after you shoot them with others through e-mail or through...

  • Conclusion: Right now the camera sensor on the Galaxy Camera is found wanting, but hopefully with future iterations we see a better sensor, more aggressive noise reduction and a much smaller body. As more and more mirrorless cameras and DSLRs come with WiFi connectivity, there’s certainly place in the market for a decent camera running on smartphone hardware giving you powerful editing tools and instantaneous sharing ability.

  • Conclusion: They've long been predicted, and the first round of Android cameras are finally here. Two companies -- Nikon and Samsung -- got the ball rolling, and we were fortunate to be able to compare both cameras side-by-side. Unfortunately, but not entirely surprisingly for first-generation designs, both show signs of compromise at work.
  • Pros: Powerful 21x optical zoom lens; bright at wide angle, too, Bright, vivid LCD monitor with very good anti-smudge coating, Very sensitive touch panel, Recent Android version feels modern and stable, Large library of available apps for download from Google Play store, Third-party apps allow functionality unheard of in closed-OS cameras, Integrated 3G or 3G/4G data plus Wi-Fi for almost-anywhere photo sharing (or Wi-Fi only to avoid data plan costs), Same processor and gr...

  • Summary: For $500 to $600 you can currently get higher quality (in the photographic sense) cameras with interchangeable lenses, but you do not get any connectivity, a great OS and the ability to access hundred of thousand of applications. Across the board, the Samsung Galaxy Camera delivers good image quality and, as a connected device running Android, it offers a ton of benefits that a traditional digital camera will never provide, including seamless photo-sharing on multiple...

  • Conclusion: With the Samsung Galaxy Camera, the Korean giant is definitely onto something. Between the data connection, seamless uploading, image editing and charging via micro USB, almost all of the hassles of using a camera have been removed. Sadly though, for the money you’ll pay, the image quality isn’t quite up to scratch - but expect great things of a sequel.
  • Pros: The Samsung Galaxy Camera is a gorgeous bit of kit, with a dazzling large screen (the best we’ve ever seen on a camera). Its version of Android, 4.1, is much more up to date than that found on the Android-powered Nikon Coolpix S800c, and runs all sorts of apps, even video players and games. As a way to introduce amateurs into the world of photography, it excels: the on-screen dials in Expert mode help you see exactly what each option does right there and then on the d...
  • Cons: We could complain about the lack of software fine tuning - it’d be great if more apps could make use of the optical zoom on the camera. As with the Nikon, you’re better off taking shots first and then opening them in your Android camera app of choice. We could also complain about the meagre battery life, more in line with a modern smartphone than a compact camera - you’ll need to get used to charging it up every few days rather than weeks. But there’s a more pressing ...
