Half Smartphone, half camera: The Galaxy camera is now with us available, with a proud price. As the operating system for the 16-Megapixel-Knipse runs Android 4.1 jelly bean.
When Samsung invited to his unpacked event in Berlin, the end of August all with a release expected the Samsung Galaxy touch 2. It came also, but it should be not the only device that the South Korean manufacturer presented this evening. In addition to the Windows phone 8-flagship Samsung Ativ S you conjured up with the Samsung Galaxy Camera still a surprise out of the hat: The first digicam with Android and UMTS. Previously, there was already a camera with Google’s OS with the Nikon Coolpix S800C, with which you could go online only via Wi-Fi. Now, users in Germany at a price of €599 (EIA) – some high fixed in my eyes – can purchase the smart camera.
Mega-zoom and slow-mo video
First to the specs of the camera module: who takes photos Knipse with BSI CMOS sensor and F2. 8 aperture in 16-megapixels, full HD quality videos on the optical zoom can zoom 21-fach (!). Videos
was criticized sometimes like at PC Games Hardware but that the focus when zooming does not work properly.
Be included in the slow-motion mode 120 frames per second at a resolution of 720 x 480 pixels, you can shoot four frames per second in burst mode. The extendable Xenon Flash helps in night scenes, the 23 mm wide-angle lens to assign. Many shooting modes “Light trace” to get light tracks of cars on the image, to “Action freeze”, which captures fast movements, help the amateur photographer. Who plays like aperture, shutter speed, etc., has but also the opportunity. To do this you must but always in the touch screen menu, have been realized as a physical (camera) keys just shutter, Flash and zoom.
Picture quality not a selling point
The image quality is good according to the first tests, but by no means outstanding. The General motto is: better than a Smartphone but worse than a (good) digital camera. Chip.de criticised PC games hardware the detail loss, when much is a light, for example, the aggressive blur. In terms of speed, the Galaxy camera behind the upper class of compact camera falls back.
For you can edit the pictures and videos on the device extensively. Samsung speaks of a total 65 “Photo Wizard”-editing capabilities. There are still more appropriate apps Google play or the Samsung app store. You can edit the videos directly on the Galaxy camera and cut in with “Movie Wizard”.
The Smartphone as part of the camera be anticipated that a not inconsiderable feature is missing the device: the telephony function. Conversations are possible only through a VoIP program like Skype, if you want to talk not only with the built-in voice control. Also one should not expect to be able to put the model in the Pocket, because it fits with the 19.1 mm deep hardly pure; In addition, it gives proud 305 grams.
Otherwise the Galaxy camera in terms of specs can keep up with current models of the upper classes: the 4.77-inch “Super clear” LCD touch screen with 1,280 x 720 pixels resolution (308 ppi) and “White Magic” technology ensures a both bright and sharp presentation of the content. The device is powered by a 1.4 GHz of strong Exynos 4412-quad-core processor, note 2 is used also when the Galaxy. The processor supported large memory 1 GB one.
The internal memory is 8 GB, of which only a little more than 4 GB are the users, the rest is covered with Android and apps. Via MicroSD, the memory can be extended but to up to 64 GB. Some mau of the battery goes down on the other hand, has a capacity of 1650 mAh and stands out as barely a full day in operation. As the operating system the cam sets on Android 4.1 jelly bean. UMTS and Wi-Fi, you can go on the net and so the recordings quickly in Facebook & co. upload. The camera thanks to all share in contact is with other Samsung devices and about the “car cloud back-up”, the photos automatically land in the cloud.
Conclusion: The Galaxy camera is interesting for all users, at the same time appreciate the wide range of camera features and Android. But it could hurt maybe, to wait, since certain aspects such as battery, trip time and image quality is still air upwards to a successor.
