Launched a few weeks ago at IFA, the Samsung Galaxy camera was heralded again at Photokina this week.
Is it a phone? Is it a camera? With its 1/2.3″ BSI CMOS sensor, the Galaxy combines leading-edge camera capabilities with Android™ 4.1 Jelly Bean and wireless network connectivity, letting users shoot, edit and share images easily anywhere, at any time.
Check out Engadget‘s hands on with the Samsung Galaxy Camera at IFA 2012:
In addition to allowing you to shoot in manual, program and aperture- or shutter-priority modes, the Galaxy also features full HD 1920×1080 30fps movie capture as well as a slow motion 720×480 120fps movie mode. And, like an Android smartphone or tablet, the Galaxy Camera has access to all of the apps in the Google Play store – opening up a world of sharing and back-up capabilities.
