Samsung Galaxy Camera EK-GC100 Review
29 November 2012
Summary: Considering all the photos and videos that are uploaded to social networks from smartphones, the Samsung Galaxy Camera EK-GC100 seems like a smart idea. You get a higher resolution than most camera phones, plus a 21x optical zoom and built-in editing apps.
Excerpt: What products would you associate with Samsung? Mobiles and tablets? TVs and audio systems? Refrigerators and washing machines? What's not got as much attention is the company's camera business. Samsung has a lineup of some value-for-money point and shoots as well as some DSLR-like models.
Pros: Powerful 21x optical zoom; 4.8" LCD touchscreen; Lag free operation; 1080p video recording.
Cons: Touchscreen gets inadvertent inputs; Mediocre image quality; Slightly large to hold; Lacks manual focus; Expensive; No voice calling.
Summary: No doubt the Samsung Galaxy Camera is an outstanding concept, but the question is, do you need such a smart camera? Or would you be better off with a DSLR or a premium compact or a super-zoom digital camera and still be left with a few thousand bucks!.
