Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd, a global leader in digital media and convergence
technologies, today announced a Wi-Fi version of the Samsung GALAXY Camera,
giving photo enthusiasts another option to further their creativity and
sharing potential. Centered on the Android™ Jellybean 4.1 platform, the GALAXY
Camera is a powerful point-and-shoot camera with a familiar, intuitive user
interface and access to Android applications from the Google Play™ market.
“The GALAXY Camera Wi-Fi blends cutting-edge digital imaging technology with
Samsung’s latest line of class-leading Android devices,” said Ron Gazzola,
Vice President, Marketing for Digital Imaging, Samsung Electronics America.
“Focusing on features that simplify the user experience, the GALAXY Camera
Wi-Fi offers an intuitive approach to feature-rich photography, without the
need to be constantly connected.”
Boasting a 21x optical zoom, 16MP backside illuminated CMOS sensor and
class-leading 4.8-inch HD Super Clear Touch LCD, the GALAXY Camera makes it
easier than ever before to capture breathtaking images, edit them with users’
favorite apps and then share over Wi-Fi to family and friends.
The GALAXY Camera’s photo interface blends the capabilities of an advanced
camera with an easy-to-use touch interface, so users can learn and grow with
their photography skills with each use. An innovative Smart Mode places camera
settings at users’ fingertips, letting them fine-tune and adjust settings like
shutter speed, aperture and exposure by simply manipulating sliders on the
screen. The GALAXY Camera also offers a selection of different scene modes to
help users define the appropriate settings for a particular scenario, whether
they want to capture flowing waterfalls, an action-packed sports event, and
Editing with Ease:
The GALAXY Camera integrates a new Photo Wizard tool, featuring a
comprehensive set of 35 editing features, designed to take advantage of the
camera’s high-resolution touchscreen and make powerful enhancements on-the-go.
Additionally, the Smart Content Manager offers innovative organizational tools
for photos, with options to quickly and easily create folders and tags or
suggest which photos can be deleted if they don’t come out the way the user
intended. Lastly, Samsung’s Paper Artist app allows users to stylize and edit
their photos with options to create new images that appear to be
sketch-drawings or watercolor paintings.
