Shutterbug
1 February 2014
  • Excerpt: The Samsung Galaxy is a new type of camera that’s more like a tablet computer with an integrated camera system. However, rather than using a small low resolution camera module (like smart phones and tablet computers) it offers a “real” camera module with an ultra zoom lens.

  • 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.

  • Cons: Expensive. Large. Touch-based control system is unusual and unwieldy for a camera. Slow 3G connectivity; no 4G. Short battery life.

  • 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.

  • Excerpt: In one of our opinion pieces, I wrote how cameras are evolving beyond what they are. We’ve seen GPS chips become a standard in point-and-shoot cameras, which adds one more way in which your privacy can be violated. It’s also a good gimmick to price cameras at a higher price point.
  • Pros: Android 4.1 interface is excellent, 3G and Wi-Fi connectivity on the camera make uploading images a breeze, Excellent detail rendition, especially in macro mode
  • Cons: Images a little soft, especially at the telephoto end, The touch-only access to shooting modes tends to slow one down
