Samsung Galaxy Camera: Camera Or Smartphone?

Smartphones are making better shots, but camera makers could not sit idly by. The Samsung Galaxy Camera incorporates many of the functions of a smartphone, but nevertheless it is no longer a camera.

For sale in Spain since last November 29, the Samsung Galaxy Camera incorporates many of the functions of smartphones, as smartercomputing indicates. It is not the first camera with Android, because Nikon launched the Coolpix S800c in early 2012, but the Galaxy camera takes advantage of the latest smartphone technology, including a1.4 GHzquad-coreprocessor and Android 4.1(Jellybean) operating system.

The result is acompactcamerawith a superzoomx21 able to run Android applications, edit images on the fly and share them via wifi or 3G.

The big difference with other Android devices with integrated camera is that the Galaxy Camera allowsseveral shooting modes:

P (automatic).

A (priority to opening).

S (speed priority).

M (manual).

Select ISO, exposure level and aperture speed like that of a conventional camera.

The camera brings preinstalled editing applications and can be downloaded and installed through the Google Play Store.

The23-483mm lensesoffer a wide range of possibilities, along with the powerful x21 zoom lens.Distortion and vignetting are not a problem.Fine detail resolution is good and the image stabilizer is quite effective.

Intermediate Quality

The picture qualityis not spectacularbut acceptable.Its performance in low light conditions is also acceptable and the autofocus continues to work properly.In outdoor or in conditions of sufficient artificial light the results do not impress us.It offers a qualitycomparable to that of compact cameras of intermediate quality. You can also record videosat a resolution of 1920×1080 at 30 fps.Video quality, acceptable.

Thelarge4.8-inch rear screen lets you use it even in full sun.Controls, image editing and other functions are handled via the touch screen, just like on a smartphone.We only find two buttons: the top button to take pictures and the one that allows to adjust the optical zoom.

Other aspects of interest are the ability to share andsave photographs in the cloudautomatically, as well asvoice control of various functions.
