The Samsung Galaxy Camera is a point-and-shoot camera which is an Android based mobile device.
The second and final major camera announcement out of Samsung today was the successor to the Android-powered Galaxy Camera, aptly named the Galaxy Camera 2. Although it boasts many of the same specs as the first Galaxy Camera, the new shooter is a more powerful and lighter version that’s sure to score points with lovers of the first model. The video recording capabilities have remained unchanged, we can record in 1080p x 30fps, 720p x 512p x 60fps and 20fps.
As always, we begin with the specs.
- It has a 5.25-inch High Definition TFT screen with a resolution of 1280×720 pixels, multi-touch screen is capable of 16 million colors.
- With an internal memory of 8 GB which can be extended to another 64 GB by use of MicroSD cards.
- It also features a 1.9 MP front camera without flash and 8 MP rear-facing camera with 21x f/2.8-5.9 zoom lens and 100-3200 ISO range.
- The Samsung Galaxy Grand 2 is powered by a 2600 mAh Li-Ion that is capable of lasting up to 17 hours. A battery that’s estimated to last over 350 shots.
The camera comes with an LED flash that is capable of illuminating your subjects quite adequately even in low light conditions. Autofocus, Geo-tagging, Touch Focus and Face Detection are some of the advanced features supported by the phone, as well as an image stabilizer and smile detector, and basic image editor. 1x zoom range, the ability to go up to 3200 ISO, shoot 1080p video, and film slow motion at 120FPS.
The Galaxy Grand 2 is released with Android 4.3 Jelly Bean. An upgrade to Android 4.4 KitKat will be made available in the future both as an over-the-air update and through Samsung Kies. Samsung has customized the interface with its TouchWiz Nature UX software. As well as apps from Google, including Google Play, Gmail and YouTube, it has access to Samsung apps such as ChatON, S Suggest, S Voice, Smart Remote (Peel) and All Share Play.
Other notable features include a pre-loaded Dropbox app with 50GB of free storage for up to two years and the ability to shoot 120fps video as long as you’re okay dropping the resolution from Full HD 1080p to 768 x 512. There’s also a plethora of different smart modes to help you capture the best shot, including (internal sigh of dismay) a ‘Selfie Alarm’ mode that takes 5 consecutive pictures so you can pick your best arm’s-length shot.
Here’s a look at the shiny new gadget:
As with the NX30, the Galaxy Camera 2 also boasts all sorts of advanced WiFi and NFC features, like ‘Tag & Go’ that lets you pair with NFC devices by tapping, ‘Photo Beam’ that lets you transfer images the same way, ‘Mobile Link’ for sending images to multiple devices at once and ‘Remote Viewfinder’ for controlling the Galaxy Camera 2 from your smart device (although that seems a bit redundant when you’re holding an Android-powered camera).
Hope you liked it. Thanks for reading
