The lines between a professional’s DSLR kit and the high-powered portable cameras that dominate the consumer market are growing more and more blurred with each major release in the latter of the two markets. The latest entry is the potentially game-changing Samsung Galaxy Camera, an innovative approach to the burgeoning field of high-quality mobile photography. Rather than build a camera into a phone, the Galaxy Camera is quite the opposite, built around the Android Jelly Bean OS to deliver an impressive range of shooting modes, editing features and built-in camera-enhancing apps for editing, sharing and storing. Its sleek exterior is fitted with a 4.8-inch high-definition touchscreen and a 21x zoom lens. Inside, a nimble 1.4GHz quad-core processor powers the camera’s 16-megapixel CMOS sensor and keeps all of the applications running quickly. Connectivity for sharing and utilizing Samsung’s Cloud storage for the camera is expected to be available in one of three different versions: Wi-Fi only, 3G or 4G. Look for the Galaxy Camera to land at retailers just in time for this year’s holiday season.
