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. Plus, the Galaxy Camera offers a host of sharing features. However, $499 plus $10 per month is a lot to ask for a camera that's not only bulky but doesn't support AT&T's fastest 4G LTE speeds.
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!. If you want great-looking photos along with the ability to share them instantly on social networks, you’d be better off with a high-end smartphone, except that you’ll have to compromise on the optical zoom.
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. In this day of convergence, the Korean electronics giant has taken the connectivity and versatility of Android to a digital camera with the Samsung GALAXY Camera.
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.
Excerpt: DinSide Android-kameraet fra Samsung, Galaxy Camera, er ikke som andre kameraer. I praksis er kameraet en hybrid mellom mobiltelefonen Samsung Galaxy S III og kompaktkameraet WB850F . Skjermen er 4,8 tommer stor med 1280x720-oppløsning, akkurat som Galaxy S III, og kameraet kjører Android v4.1 og har en firekjerners prosessor på 1,4GHz.
Pros: God vidvinkel og 21x zoom i kompakt format, meget god skjerm, kjører siste Android-versjon, støtter både WiFi og 3G
Cons: Umulig å betjene med én hånd, ikke alle apps er like kompatible, svak bildekvalitet
