Samsung Galaxy Camera Review | Tech

Samsung Galaxy Camera - Front View Samsung Galaxy Camera - Back Screen View Instagram App

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.

More Photographer than Blogger

Dear Mia,

Recently I’ve been thinking of making Delayed Missives a little bit more editorial, although literally every person I mentioned it to at IFB (except Shenneth, who’s thinking along the same lines) has said how much people love personal style blogs. I can’t disagree with that because my favorite fashion blogs are all personal style. However… you know that I’m in the middle of the fashion blogger version of the existential crisis. Lately I’ve been thinking of focusing more on my writing as well.

And perhaps I’ve become somewhat camera shy. I did take photos of my dress, but I hated them all. I photograph other people much better with this 50mm lens than I do myself. I’m thinking of taking the 35mm to Bloggers Night Out, and am even contemplating starting a fund for the 28mm. Not that I don’t love my 50, but it has major focusing problems.

(This is Nnenna if you don’t know her. A face seen frequently on the blog.)

I’m not sure if it’s just me or I got a bad lens. I’m starting to think the 50 is only good when I’m behind the camera and that the remote focus just doesn’t work with it. None of the photos in this post were taken with the remote and I’d say they’re all pretty sharp (wide open at ƒ1.4 for the portraits, too). I can never get photos like this by myself with the remote, although Lydia’s seem to come out all the time. I pretty much can’t believe that my crappy (I mean, as far as SLR lenses go) 35mm generally performs better than my 50mm.

So basically, I just wanted to tell you that this post is going nowhere (ha) and I don’t know what I’m doing. But I will be figuring it out. Promise.
