Samsung Galaxy camera goes official

Written by Peter Scott

16-megapixel smartcam with Galaxy DNA

Not content with smartphones and tablets, Samsung is now gunning for the smart camera market, with an interesting mid-range snapper with some Galaxy DNA under the bonnet.

The Galaxy Camera features a 16-megapixel sensor and 23-481mm lens coupled with a 1/2.3” CMOS sensor. The smartcam measures 128x70x19.1mm and weighs 305g, so it is pretty compact given the spec.

What sets the Galaxy apart from the rest of the point-and-shoot crowd is of course Android. The camera runs on Android 4.0 and features a 4.8-inch 308ppi screen, probably borrowed from the Galaxy S III. There is no voice functionality, but the Galaxy comes in 3G and 4G flavours, although most users will probably stick with wifi.

The camera features 8GB of internal storage and there’s also a microSD slot on board. Of course, with a proper OS and data connectivity, cloud storage is always just a swipe away.

There is no word on pricing and it probably won’t come cheap. Still, smartcams are probably the only way point-and-shoot cameras will survive in a world of cheap SLRs and increasingly capable smartphone cameras.
