Back to the camera: A Samsung Galaxy S3 has a 1/3.2 sensor with an f2.6 lens. This sensor is 57.91 smaller than a Full Frame camera sensor. i.e. to have the same image quality (per pixel) as say a 5D Mk III, the resolution of this size sensor would need to be: roughly 380 KP (0.38MP) The New Galaxy Camera has a larger sensor (1/2.3) than the S3, so this would translate to: 31.81x smaller than a Full Frame. 690KP (0.69MP) Optimizing the s3 camera for a 1080p (2MP screen) would translate to a 2MP camera that is 1/5th the image quality of a top end 5D III (per pixel) Optimizing the galaxy cam camera for a 1080p (2MP screen) would translate to a 2MP camera that is 1/3rd the image quality of a top end 5D III (per pixel) Now seriously here, what would you rather have?
