A Camera that’s a Phone?

Monday, November 19, 2012

These days it’s pretty difficult to find a new phone that doesn’t have a camera built right in. Many phone users carry around a smart device that not only functions as a phone, but doubles as a camera, calendar, and personal notebook. Some of the features of the phone make it much easier to access your calendar on the go or upload your photos to Facebook as soon as they’re taken. However, a photo enthusiast isn’t looking to use their phone to take high quality pictures. The phone’s camera just isn’t made for that. But, what if there was a device out there that went the other way? What if there was a camera that had phone capabilities instead? Well, that’s what Samsung has just released.

This isn’t your normal run of the mill point-and-shoot camera. This is the new Samsung Galaxy Camera. Packed with a 16 Megapixel sensor and 21x zoom, this camera stacks up nicely against its counterparts in the market today. However, it’s not the picture taking abilities that has the people buzzing. This camera runs a friendly version of Android which allows it to behave similarly to your Android powered phone! So all those photo editing and filtering apps you’ve downloaded on your phone can also be downloaded straight to this camera. Additionally, it comes built in with WiFi and an optional HSPA+ Cell Radio so you can upload those photos to the internet on the go. The big benefit to this device over a cellular phone with a camera is the ability to take significantly better pictures while in an easier to hold device. Along with the better lens is a Quad-core processor, 4GB of internal memory with the ability to add a microSD card, and the ability to take HD Video. If you’d like more information with a very intuitive review, visit Engadget’s website where they have this and plenty of other reviews to check out.
