Photography is one of the many popular hobbies nowadays. Everyone owns a compact camera or a DSLR to capture photos; quality photos to be exact.
Besides that, sharing photos on-the-go is a popular trend. With a smart phone in hand, photos taken from the phone’s camera is shared almost immediately on the Internet. However, the quality of the photos may not be as good as the ones taken from an actual camera.
So if you were to combine the hobby and the trend, you’ll definitely need a device that incorporates the best of both worlds – and that’s when the Samsung GALAXY Camera comes into the picture!
I’ve been using the GALAXY Camera for a while, and my, it’s one of the coolest devices that I’ve used so far. It’s practically a full-fledged camera on one side, and a full-fledged Android Jelly Bean on the other.
With its 21x optical zoom, it can zoom from quite a distance while retaining the quality of the photos.
Most compact cameras have digital zoom, which reduces the image quality. Honestly, it makes me feel like a stalker when I use the maximized zoom feature. ;)
Since I’m not a fan of configuring the camera modes, the GALAXY Camera’s Smart Pro Mode allows me to achieve the ideal photography settings automatically.
So it’s just a matter of pressing the shutter button, and I’m done snapping a photo!
Another cool feature about the camera is the Voice Control. Voice commands can be used to control the camera without even touching the camera.
Believe it or not, you can zoom in and out, set timer, take a photo, and many more – by just uttering the voice commands listed.
With its 4.8″ super clear touch-screen, the display is vibrant and lively – especially when viewing the photos on the screen.
Anyway, since I’m not a smart phone user till today, this device allows me to do what every smart phone users can do – surf the Internet!
With its Android operating system, the GALAXY Camera functions like a smart device. 3G and WiFi connectivity are available. Therefore, photos taken can be shared instantly on my Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and more – you name it!
In fact, my Instagram account has been more active ever since I have the GALAXY Camera. Follow me? ;)
As for the design of the camera, it may be a little heavy as compared to most of the compact cameras out there. But I always believe that the additional weight will produce stable photos – just like how big and heavy a DLSR is. Also, a fully-charged unit can last for a day of moderate usage.
So to summarize, I can share my moments with the GALAXY Camera, and know what? My photos are actually on This is My Moment, LIVE website, a photo-sharing social website created by Samsung.
So if I could capture every moment in my life in vivid detail and share it instantly, it surely IS the best thing technology has to offer. And that’s what the GALAXY Camera offers us – to share our moments, LIVE, with the people close to us.
I’m definitely having a good time with it! ;)
