Samsung Galaxy S III: Burst Shot/Best Photo camera features demo
Samsung is bringing the 8MP camera module on the Galaxy S III in line with the sub-second times of phones like the Xperia S, iPhone 4S, and the HTC One series, but it has introduced a number of new camera features as well.

The back-illuminated sensor on the phone is capable of a Burst shot mode, that can shoot 6 frames per second, compared to 4 on the HTC One series, up to 20 frames in total.

In Best Photo mode the phone takes 8 shots at that speed, and afterwards you can let the software decide which one of those is the best looking, and keep it for you, or you can do it yourself - this is present with those HTC ImageChip new One phones as well, so Sammy is just playing catch up here. Nevertheless, with the 1080p video recording and those new modes, the handset will be future-proof in the camera department for a while.

Intel Medfield's ISP is the best around in terms of feature, for a smartphone SoC. So, it's not surprising.

Absolutely true..

People can check Anandtech review of Intel Medfield. It also has the best SunSpider score.

that is unfortunately true. give me a high quality camera, not a high mpx count. The true test will come when they do the comparisons between the other cameras. The SGS2 camera was no slouch and I expect the SGS3 camera to be much better.
