The Samsung Galaxy Camera is in a class of devices that you might call a smart camera. It’s Verizon Wireless 4G LTE enabled, which means you can snap and share your photos immediately. The Instagram app is available, as well as Dropbox, Facebook, Google+, etc.
It should come as no surprise that my favorite way to share photos is Instagram and I loved having a huge touchscreen to edit and select photos on. I also had some fun with the different shooting modes like Beauty, Silhouete and Party/Indoor.
Some apps come pre-installed on the camera. You can install all of your favorites with your Google Play account. And the familiar Android widgets screen is also available, of course.
So how are the photos? Well, I didn’t have any printed so I can’t comment on how prints turn out. To my eye, the photo quality compares well against other high-end point-and-shoot cameras in the same range. Remember my last photo diary? The photos were almost exclusively taken with the Samsung Galaxy Camera. The photos below came out very well, and both were taken in a high contrast, challenging lighting situation.
