Samsung Singapore has announced the launch of the GALAXY Camera in Singapore. Developed to fit the changing ways we communicate, the GALAXY Camera combines high performance photography with the latest Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean and wireless network connectivity, creating a brand new type of device.
Samsung GALAXY Camera fits perfectly for those who wish to shoot, edit and share high quality photographs and video easily and spontaneously from anywhere, at any time.
“The GALAXY Camera opens a new visual communication era and presents a paradigm shift 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 can be now more vivid and lively with high-quality images and instant sharing anywhere, anytime,” said Irene Ng, Vice President, Marketing, Samsung Asia Pte Ltd.
The GALAXY Camera enables outstanding photography on the go and easily outperforms any smartphone camera. Boasting a 21x super long optical zoom lens and a super-bright 16M BSI CMOS sensor, the GALAXY Camera delivers brilliant quality pictures, which users can edit and share instantly.
The device also features ‘Smart Pro’ technology, a series of modes that make professional-looking photography easy for anyone to achieve. What truly revolutionises this photography experience is Android™ 4.1.1 Jelly Bean and wireless connectivity, which opens up the device to applications for photo-editing, sharing, and much more. Users will experience all of GALAXY Camera’s great features on a market-leading HD SUPER CLEAR LCD. With stunning clarity, incredible ease-of-use and unparalleled connectivity, the GALAXY Camera is the next step in imaging innovation.
Shoot stunning quality images
The GALAXY Camera’s ‘Smart Pro’ feature makes it easy to recreate advanced photographic setups in just a few simple steps for stunning artistic results. Using the easy-to-navigate menu system, users can choose from a series of preset scenario options which will automatically adjust the camera’s settings in order to capture the perfect photo.
For example, the ‘Rich Tone’ setting delivers images with greater intensity – particularly effective for reducing overexposure in bright surroundings, while the ‘Light Trace’ setting automatically controls shutter speed for atmospheric night scenes full of light trails.
The GALAXY Camera’s 21x optical zoom can be controlled by either button or touchscreen, rendering long-distance pictures in a quality that users will be proud to share, while OIS ensures that images stay clear and crisp. The camera’s 16 Megapixel 1/2.33″ CMOS sensor captures images in brilliant colour and resolution, while the 23mm aperture lens delivers impressive wide-angle shots, superior to smartphone pictures.
Enjoy your photos and video on a world-leading display
The GALAXY Camera boasts large and vivid camera display – a 4.8″ (121.2mm) HD SUPER CLEAR LCD screen, which makes it a pleasure to shoot, share and edit images from the palm of the hand. Another advantage of smartphone technology is the Voice Control option which allows users to control a number of functions such as ‘Zoom in’ and ‘Shoot’ through voice. All these features are housed in a beautifully designed, ergonomic body with the GALAXY Camera’s minimal, organic design complementing its easy-to-use professional features.
Edit and perfect images on your device
The GALAXY Camera includes a comprehensive set of 35 powerful photo editing features within the ‘Photo Wizard’, allowing users to make professional quality edits on the go. The ‘Auto Face Calibration’ feature powered by the ultra-fast quad-core processor and displayed on the HD SUPER CLEAR LCD, ensures photo edits can be made in precise detail and with ease. The ‘Movie Wizard’ also allows users to create and edit expert-quality videos easily from the touch screen.
The GALAXY Camera also features ‘Smart Content Manager’, an innovative on-device organisation tool which intelligently creates folders, tags faces, and even suggests which pictures to delete when they do not come out as desired. Thanks to the combination of wireless connectivity and Android™ 4.1.1 Jelly Bean, the internet capabilities of the GALAXY Camera are equal to those of the latest smartphone so that users can maximise their experience on their device.
In addition to the pre-installed applications from Samsung, users can browse the web and enjoy any application from Google Play or Samsung Apps stores. ‘S Suggest’ will also be able to recommend a new photo editing app or fun game to download if users are spoilt for choice.
Share your images anywhere, anytime
The camera’s convenient ‘Auto Cloud Backup’ feature will automatically save precious photos into the cloud via Samsung’s AllShare the instant they are taken. The GALAXY Camera also allows users to share photos simultaneously as they shoot when they use the ‘Share Shot’ feature.
In addition to sharing photos on social networks and cloud services, users can also connect to a range of GALAXY devices including the GALAXY S III and GALAXY Note II for effortless and automatic sharing of pictures across the GALAXY family. The new device enables connection to 3G networks, allowing photo sharing and browsing anywhere. The GALAXY Camera also functions on Wi-Fi with Dual Band and Channel Bonding for extra speed. Connectivity is supported by a quad-core processor that enables fast web-browsing and multi-tasking, as well as high-speed image processing without a significant impact on battery life.
The GALAXY Camera comes in 3G in Singapore. It will be available from November 2012 at all leading consumer electronics stores.
