Samsung Galaxy Camera review: Half-press to play

 

We've been watching phones evolve at a breakneck pace with smartphones all but taking over, while cameras were stuck in the 20th century. Well, no more - the Samsung Galaxy Camera aims to stir the point-and-shoot market the way the iPhone did the phone...

Point and shoot camera with 21x optical zoom and optical image stabilization ; Wide-angle 23mm lens, 1/2.3" sensor, 16.3MP resolution ; Xenon flash ; 1080p HD video recording at 30fps; 720p High Framerate video recording at 60fps; 768x512 120fps...

Image quality leaves a lot to be desired ; Lens is not dust tight ; Big for a point-and-shoot ; Small 1,650mAh battery ; No video light

The Samsung Galaxy Camera is a rare breed of didgicam. This Android-powered connected camera is stuff typically shown off at tech exhibitions to wow the crowd and soon be forgotten by its maker. But the Galaxy Camera is the real deal - it's available...

Samsung Galaxy Camera EK-GC100 Review

 

The Galaxy Camera is a bold step into a new world of connected cameras and is the first true camera to also double as an impressive Android device. We just wish it were a better point-and-shoot camera for the price. As is, it's a great, though bulky...

Creating something like the Samsung Galaxy Camera is a risk: Because it’s a hybrid device, there’s the chance it’s both a crappy Android device and a crappy camera. This isn’t a perfect camera; it could have a bigger sensor and a better lens. And, of...

Samsung Galaxy Camera review: a 21x compact shooter brought to life by Android

 

There were no heckles, boos or crickets for Samsung's reps back at IFA. But it's fair to say that the atmosphere following its unveiling of the Galaxy

Jelly Bean brings a lot of fun to photography ; Wide range of connectivity options ; Good stabilization

Surprisingly big and heavy ; The 4.8-inch screen drains the battery ; You can find better image quality for the same price

The Galaxy Camera proves that Android on a point-and-shoot is no gimmick. But until the price drops closer to the level of other compacts, it's not a very practical purchase.

Samsung Galaxy Camera review

 

There's been a dramatic uptick in amateur photography over the past few years — more people want to share more photos, and faster. This has led users to demand more and more from their smartphone...

Instantly backs up your photos to the cloud ; Beautiful touchscreen ; Simple to use ; Expandable with apps

Image quality is no better than a $200 camera ; Battery life's short for a camera ; Awkward manual shooting ; Constant notifications can be irritating

Other companies need to take this idea and run with it

Samsung Galaxy Camera EK-GC100 (AT&T)

 

The Samsung Galaxy Camera combines the functions of a Android device and a dedicated camera quite well, letting you whisk your photos and videos to the Web instantly. But this first-gen design also shows room for improvement.

Gorgeous 4.8-inch display. Runs Instagram and other Android apps. Long 21x zoom range. Good high ISO performance. Always-on network connectivity.

Expensive. Large. Touch-based control system is unusual and unwieldy for a camera. Slow 3G connectivity; no 4G. Short battery life.

Samsung Galaxy Camera review

 

As the first camera available in the U.S. with a data plan and the second that uses the Android OS, the Samsung Galaxy Camera (its actual model number is EK-GC100) certainly deserves some attention. The combination of a standalone camera with mobile...

The Samsung Galaxy Camera's feature set is tough to beat, combining the power of a high-end Android OS 4.1 Jelly Bean device with a giant HD-resolution touch screen and the 21x zoom and 16-megapixel resolution of a compact camera.

If you're looking for great picture quality for the Galaxy Camera's $500 price tag, you're probably going to be disappointed. Its battery life is fairly short. To get the most from it, you'll want to pay for a monthly data plan.

Outside of its relatively high cost of ownership and average point-and-shoot picture quality, the Samsung Galaxy Camera definitely delivers the shoot-and-share experience of a smartphone with the features of a compact camera.

Review Samsung Galaxy Camera

 

Smartphone? Tablet? Camera? With the Galaxy Camera, Samsung puts

Huge optical zoom range; Tablet and camera; Lots of options for picture editing; Direct upload of pictures; Good display; Integrated image stabilizer

Relatively heavy; Expensive; Manual setting of the camera is laborious; Blurring hard to control at high zoom level, despite stabilizer; Photos could be sharper; Long boot time (when completely shut off)

The Galaxy Camera is the first device to combine a smartphone/tablet with a camera.

Times are tough for point-and-shoot cameras. The rise of the smartphone and its ever-increasing megapixel count, as well as a demand for instant sharing, has seen dedicated camera sales droop. Yet, as any photography aficionado will tell you, there's...

Is the Galaxy Camera a game-changer? Yes, and no. In itself, it’s the best of the Android-based cameras, though that’s hardly a well-stocked category. Judged purely on its photography abilities it struggles, falling short of what similarly-priced...
