With its 3G/4G data connection and built-in smartphone technology, the Samsung Galaxy Camera may provide a clue about the technology we will one day see in all digital cameras. Read the Samsung Galaxy Camera review...
The ability to share images instantly is a fairly new phenomenon, but one that is slowly changing how photographs are viewed and taken. Samsung has done an excellent job combining its camera and smartphone technology into a single product in the form of the Samsung Galaxy Camera, and it will appeal to many consumers who wish for that instant gratification.
Sadly, the image quality doesn’t match the expectations of enthusiast photographers, and the handling of the camera is slow. This could be easily rectified with the addition of a couple of discreet buttons or controls, and less noise reduction and image compression.
What the Galaxy does offer photographers is a lot of fun. The variety of different applications makes it a very versatile tool, and as a simple point-and-shoot compact camera it is an exciting alternative option.
