Camera House : Better Pictures 11
Get connected The newest member of Samsung’s digital imaging stable – the Galaxy Camera – takes the notion of shooting and sharing to the extreme. Announced in Germany in August, the Galaxy Camera immediately caused a ruckus in the press for its concept of absolute connectivity for the shooter. Designed to ma ximise and capitalise on the way we now share our visual content, the Galaxy Camera easily integrates into a photographer’s everyday life, making it simpler than ever to share movies and images with family and friends, whether through social networking, the HD TV or other smart devices. This new device combines leading-edge camera capabilities with the AndroidTM 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system to provide users with the ability to shoot, share and edit images easily anywhere, any time. In the past few years the way we communicate with each other has rapidly shifted. Social networking is not just a buzzword; it’s a way of life. Everyone has become an amateur photographer and videographer and the Galaxy Camera leverages this, providing photographers with the ability to spontaneously share their images and movies without the hassle of downloading to a computer first. “The Galaxy Camera opens a new visual communication era and shifts a paradigm in communication. With the growth of social networks and the prevalence of smartphones and tablets, people today communicate faster than words. As we increasingly articulate our experiences through pictures and videos, the Galaxy Camera has been created to lead the way in this new era of visual communication. Communication becomes more vivid and lively with high quality images and instant sharing anywhere, any time,” said JK Shin, President of IT & Mobile Communications Division at Samsung Electronics. The Galaxy Camera makes outstanding still images and movies on the fly. Users never again have to sacrifice picture quality if they want to edit and share their photos instantly. Boasting a 21x optical touch zoom lens and a super-bright 16 megapixel BSI CMOS sensor it delivers pictures in brilliant quality. The device also features Smart Pro technology, a series of modes that make professional-looking images easy for even the complete novice to achieve. In just a few simple steps users can choose from a series of preset scene options that will automatically adjust the camera’s settings in order to capture the perfect photo. However what truly revolutionises this camera is the AndroidTM 4.1 Jelly Bean platform and its wireless connectivity, which opens up the device to applications for photo-editing, sharing, and much more. 40 Feature Get connected 040_Bpics11_Galaxy.indd 40 27/11/12 2:49 PM
