Samsung Galaxy Camera: Smartphone + real Camera

(1/2) > >>

I was just amazed at the current innovation.  This is a real camera/phone that photographers should be happy about.  It may not be complete yet (not yet fully a smartphone, can't make voice calls) but it's sure a good start.  I just hope they increase the camera sensor size to at least 1/1.7 with the next iteration.  As of now, some dslr-like functionality (full manual control on ISO, Aperture, and Shutter speed) are already incorporated in it.  It's lens is a 23mm equivalent on a 35mm camera though max aperture is 2.8.  I hope they increase it to 1.8.

could be, but I like what I am seeing more on the galaxy camera.  It's the form factor I guess.  Lens and sensor wise, the galaxy camera has more potential than the iphone 5.  I don't like camera inside a smartphone that much.  I like more a smartphone inside a camera if you catch my drift.

You don’t have to get the latest a greatest galaxy to get good photos, I’m sure I posted elsewhere on here but for an experiment I got a display walls worth of 16x12s printed for a school trip my wife was running and I was amazed at the (relative) quality of them, didn’t think they would stand up to that sort of enlargement but hey they were loved by the intended audience. It goes without saying that photos intended for the interweb are just fine too. The biggest problem with all camera phones for me is shutter lag so she’s got an app that purports to help but I think it just cripples the res. I also hate holding at arm’s length, it’s just the most rubbish way to take a photo. That’s why I think the ‘M’ is such a joke it’s got the worst two features of a camera phone and you can’t even make a call with it :P
