Samsung Unveils Wi-Fi Galaxy Camera
Samsung today unveiled a Wi-Fi version of its Galaxy Camera.
The gadget will sell for $449.99 via Samsung.com and other stores.
This new version does not differ much from the AT&T version PCMag reviewed in November except that users must tap into Wi-Fi for Internet connectivity rather than AT&T’s 4G LTE network. There’s 21x optical zoom and a 16-megapixel backside illuminated CMOS sensor.
With Smart Mode, users can fine-tune and adjust settings like shutter speed, aperture, and exposure via sliders on the screen. There are also several different scene modes that alter the settings depending on what’s being photographed.
The camera runs Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and features a 4.8-inch HD LCD display on the back to preview photos and access apps via Google Play to quickly post snaps to sites like Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram.
If your photos need a little work, the Photo Wizard tool includes 35 editing features for on-the-go edits, while Paper Artist makes pics look like they are sketch drawings or watercolor paintings. Smart Content Manager, meanwhile, helps organize photos into folders.
