Samsung Electronics Phils Corporation (SEPCO) a leader in digital media and digital convergence technologies, has launched the GALAXY Camera. Developed to fit the changing ways we share our lives with those we hold dear, the GALAXY Camera combines high performance photography with the latest Android 4.1 platform, so called Jelly Bean, and wireless network connectivity, creating a totally new experience of capturing those special moments. Samsung GALAXY Camera fits perfectly for those who wish to shoot, edit and share high quality photographs and video easily and instantaneously from anywhere, at any time.
“The GALAXY Camera opens a new visual communication era and shifts a paradigm in communication. With the growth of social networks and the prevalence of smartphones and tablets, people today communicate with more than just words. As we increasingly articulate our experiences through pictures and videos, the GALAXY Camera has been created to lead the way in this new era of visual communication.
"Communication becomes more vivid and lively with high-quality images and instant sharing anywhere, anytime,” said Binggoy Mauricio, Mobile Phones Business Unit Director, SEPCO.
The GALAXY Camera makes outstanding photography on the go. Users never again have to sacrifice picture quality if they want to edit and share their photos instantly. It easily outperforms any smartphone camera. The GALAXY Camera, boasting a 21x super long optical zoom lens and a super-bright 16M BSI CMOS sensor, delivers pictures in brilliant quality.
The device also features ‘Smart Pro’ technology, a series of modes that make professional-looking photography easy for anyone to achieve. What truly revolutionizes this photography experience is Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and wireless connectivity, which opens up the device to applications for photo-editing, instant sharing, and much more.
Users will experience all of GALAXY Camera’s great features on a market-leading HD Super Clear LCD. With stunning clarity, incredible ease-of-use and unparalleled connectivity, the GALAXY Camera is the next step in imaging innovation.
The GALAXY Camera’s ‘Smart Pro’ feature makes it easy to recreate advanced photographic setups in just a few simple steps for stunning artistic results. Using the easy-to-navigate menu system, users can choose from a series of preset scenario options which will automatically adjust the camera’s settings in order to capture the perfect photo.
For example, the ‘Rich Tone’ setting delivers images with greater intensity – particularly effective for reducing overexposure in bright surroundings, while the ‘Light Trace’ setting automatically controls shutter speed for atmospheric night scenes full of light trails.
The GALAXY Camera’s 21x optical zoom can be controlled by either button or touchscreen, rendering long-distance pictures in a quality that users will be proud to share, while OIS ensures that images stay clear and crisp. The camera’s 16 Megapixel 1/2.3” BSI CMOS sensor captures images in brilliant color and resolution, while the 23mm aperture lens delivers impressive wide-angle shots incomparable to smartphone pictures.
The GALAXY Camera boasts large and vivid enough camera display - a 4.8”(121.2mm) HD Super Clear LCD screen, which makes it a pleasure to shoot, edit and share images from the palm of the hand. Another advantage of smartphone technology is the Voice Control option which allows the user to control a number of functions such as ‘Zoom in’ and ‘Shoot’ through voice.
All these features are housed in a beautifully designed, ergonomic body with the GALAXY Camera’s minimal, organic design complementing its easy-to-use professional features.
The GALAXY Camera includes a comprehensive set of 35 powerful photo editing features through the ‘Photo Wizard’, allowing users to make professional quality edits on the go.
The new features take advantage of the ultrafast quad-core processor and HD Super Clear LCD, giving access to a feature like Auto Face Calibration so edits can be made in precise detail and with ease. The ‘Movie Wizard’ also allows users to create and edit expert-quality videos easily from the touch screen.
The GALAXY Camera also features ‘Smart Content Manager’, an innovative on-device organization tool which intelligently creates folders, tags faces, and even suggests which pictures to delete when they don’t come out as desired.
Thanks to the combination of wireless connectivity and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean OS, the internet capabilities of the GALAXY Camera are equal to those of the latest smartphone so that users can get even more enjoyment out of their device.
