[pullquote align=”left”]“The GALAXY Camera opens a new visual communication era and shifts a paradigm in communication. With the growth of social networks and the prevalence of smartphones and tablets, people today communicate faster than words. As we increasingly articulate our experiences through pictures and videos the GALAXY Camera has been created to lead the way in this new era of visual communication. Communication becomes more vivid and lively with high-quality images and instant sharing anywhere, anytime,” said JK Shin, President of IT & Mobile Communications Division at Samsung Electronics.[/pullquote] The GALAXY Camera may very well redefine what a camera can be, and revolutionise how we take pictures, edit and share them. The new point-and-shoot brings with it a 16MP BSI CMOS sensor, 23mm aperture lens that boasts 21x super long zoom. With ‘Smart Pro’ technology, a series of modes help make pro-looking photos easy to achieve.
The GALAXY Camera comes with a large and vivid camera display – a 4.8″ HD Super Clear LCD screen. Another never before available feature is Voice Control where you can control certain camera tasks like “Zoom” and “Shoot” via voice.
With Android built-in, it opens a whole new world of photography apps and more.
The GALAXY Camera includes a comprehensive set of 35 powerful photo editing features through the ‘Photo Wizard’, allowing users to make professional quality edits on the go.
WiFi capabilities coupled with ‘Auto Cloud backup’ and AllShare brings wireless connectivity and easy online sharing and storage. A feature called ‘Share Shot’ upload photos online as you shoot them. Users can also connect to a range of GALAXY devices including the GALAXY SIII and GALAXY Note II for effortless and automatic sharing of pictures. Neat.
