What happens when you leave your cell phone and your digital camera alone, in a dark place overnight? You get the Frankenstein known as the Samsung Galaxy Camera from Verizon Wireless! Camera lovers rejoice. But you might be asking, is it worth it? Is it better than a typical point-and-shoot camera? And, can I still check Facebook? The answer to all these questions is a resounding “yes”. Let’s take a closer look at the latest offerings from Samsung on this point-and-shoot, smart-camera.
-16.3 megapixel camera-F2.5-5.9 4.1-86.1mm lens (21x optical zoom)
-Android 4.1.1 with TouchWiz, powered by a fast quad-core 1GHz processor
-WiFi + 3G/4G LTE connectivity
-Large 4.77-inch HD LCD touchscreen
All right then, that’s the nerdy rundown of the main features of the camera, but what can you and I actually do with it? I think the cool thing here is that you are getting more than just a “phone camera”. Sure, the camera technology in most phones has gotten better over the years, but if you’re like me, then there have been several times where you’ve wished you had an actual camera with you to snap a few good photos. Enter the Galaxy Camera.
