Samsung Galaxy Camera WiFi Announced, Is Cheaper, But It Lacks 3G
Samsung Galaxy Camera WiFi is the new model developed by the South Korea-based company, being a cheaper alternative for those who don’t need a permanent data connection. Even though the new model doesn’t come with a 3G module, Samsung has kept all the features and the specifications of the model announced last year.
Samsung Galaxy Camera 3G was announced at Samsung’s Unpacked event ahead of IFA Berlin in August 2012, and it was launched on the market two months later, in November.
For the time being, Samsung didn’t revealed how much cheaper the WiFi-only model will be, nor the exact date when the new Galaxy Camera will be available for purchase.
Samsung Galaxy Camera WiFi includes the same 16.3 BSI CMOS sensor, the optical image stabilization function, lens with focal length between 4.1 and 86.1 mm and 21x optical zoom. The ISO sensibility can be set automatically or manually at values like 100, 200, 400, 800, 1600 and 3200.
The pictures taken with the Samsung Galaxy Camera are saved in jepg format at a maximum resolution of 4608 x 3456 pixels, and the videos can be recorded at full HD rezolution at 30 fps. In “slow motion” mode, the Galaxy Camera is capable of recording videos at 120 fps with a resolution of 768 x 512 pixels.
As well, the camera has 19 pre-setted modes that are meant to facilitate the action of taking pictures in different conditions, from marco mode, to portrait, landscape, and low light conditions.
Galaxy Camera WiFi comes pre-loaded with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and is powered by a quad-core processor clocked at 1.4 GHz, which promises fast image processing.
Because the Samsung Galaxy Camera WiFi doesn’t come with a 3G module, the owner can use the WiFi 802.11n dual-band connection in order to share multimedia content to e-mail, social netwroks or Samsung Chat-on directly from the camera.
Samsung has pre-installed two photo and video editing applications, “Photo Wizard” and “Video Editor,” but you can also install similar applications form Google Play, too. With the help of the GPS module, the pictures can be tagged in the location they were taken at.
We will keep you up to date with the Samsung Galaxy Camera WiFi availability and price as soon as the South Korean company will make them available.
