Samsung Galaxy Camera photo samples emerge
posted by Nick T. / Aug 30, 2012, 1:57 AM
The Samsung Galaxy Camera was probably the most intriguing products that the Korean company announced yesterday. It blends the imaging quality of a point-and-shoot digital camera with the versatility and connectivity features of an Android smartphone, which results in a totally new kind of product – a product that Nikon has an alternative to, but that is another story.
Gotta Be Mobile got to test the device first hand, snapped several samples, and uploaded them online for the world to see. And what's really important about their test photos is that they were taken in non-optimal lighting conditions, meaning that any flaws that the camera might have will be easier to spot.Yet let us put theory aside. What most of you are likely wondering is how good of a photo can the Samsung Galaxy Camera actually take. Well, the folks at
You can check out the samples in the slideshow below, but brace yourselves with patience as some shots are nearly 4 megabytes in size. Now that you've seen the photos, are you planning on getting a Samsung Galaxy Camera?

I WANT IT! I WANT IT! I WANT IT! I WANT IT! I WANT IT! I WANT IT! I WANT IT! I WANT IT! I WANT IT! I WANT IT! I WANT IT! I WANT IT! I WANT IT! I WANT IT! I WANT IT! I WANT IT! I WANT IT SO MUCH. I actually want this more than the Galaxy Note II. --- Then I'd get a WP8 Device --- and for the tablet, I'd wait for a cheap i5 tablet or just a nexus. asdfghjkl. so much gadgets, so little money.

i wonder if it will work as a phone... but when it comes to camera phone 808 Pureview is still the best!!! the lumia pureview might come second and the N8 will come in 3rd!!! then after that, runner ups... i also wonder about that new sony phone...

The new sony phone will most probably be better than the N8 as the N8 is now out-dated, still awesome, but out-dated. Maybe even this Galaxy Camera will be better than the N8, but no where near the 808 Pureview!

um..no sir, you're wrong. sony WOULD LIKE TO do something better with its "super duper exmor r sensors" but it failed so many times promising that THIS time they would beat up N8...they haven't so far, not to mention 808. and samsung? too weird for a photophone...the only advantage over 808 is this optical zoom...but the details and overall look is much worse.

Sadly it doesn't work as a phone. But 21x optical zoom beats nokia pureview.

That's it? Pureview 808 crushes this in terms of details. The only advantage is the zoom nothing else.

It's NOT just about image quality. PureView will be better definitely because of the sensor size. If image quality is what I wanted, why not I take Sony RX100. Nothing beats RX100 in terms of image quality in compact camera range, not even pureview. Galaxy Camera is sort of hybrid device. Normal consumers love optical zoom. The interface is slick, and you can run any Android Application. Jelly Bean onboard and a quad core SoC with big HD display. This will sell more than pureview because this is targeted to normal consumers as a camera with addition to android and touchscreen. it's competition is with other P-n-S cameras, not pureview.

No. It's stepping on borders you see. If it's aiming for other point and shoots it's gonna be a tough sell against the likes of GEX500 (which costs just around US$200). It has a market of its own if you ask me. I'm not saying it's in direct competition against the pureview but like I said it's stepping on borders.

They should have revived the pixon line instead of this. Is it me or the pictures have less detail than my N8? The girl's teeth are a bit blurred or have soft detail.
