Samsung Galaxy Camera Preview

Today it must be my lucky day. I just won myself a brand new Samsung Galaxy Camera from their event launch in Ciao via a mini photo competition. This is my second Samsung smart camera as I owned the Samsung Smart Camera NX-20.

The Samsung Galaxy Camera box was smaller than I expected and the size is similar with mobile phone boxes. Since I had already owned a camera, I gave the Samsung Galaxy Camera to Rachel.

What is within the box of the Samsung Galaxy Camera? First of all the camera (I received the white), two batteries (how generous), leather strap, USB cable, power adapter and instruction manual.

When we started to play with the camera, it impressed us. We got confused as it worked like a phone and the huge 4.8” LCD is as good as it gets.

The thing was we used it like a phone more than a camera as we needed to update our details inside the camera. The speed of the WIFI was amazing and the Quad Core processor left Rachel playing with camera more than her iPhone!

We haven’t really started to use it yet so we can’t give a full insight on its functions or giving any tips on the functions.

We heard Maxis will offer the 3G package for this device, I’m sure they will put it up within this few days on their promotion on Samsung Galaxy Camera.

Lastly, thank you Samsung Malaysia for the camera and the new revolution of digital camera has started! This is your perfect camera for traveling!

  1. Aha – I think Rachel might just have had a preview of what the Nexus4 or the Note 2 is like. I will be interested with what you gather from experience on the road.
    Do you Need 3G if you can use WiFi through tethering.
    (Or is that to hard on the iPhone? LOL

    1. Hi Gerald,

      You have been commenting on our page so many times and this is the first time you comment here. Good day Tassie!

      Rachel loved it for many reasons, too many list it here. It runs on 3G but it was running on WIFI.

      I’m not sure when it will reach Tasmania but do give us some feedbacks if you intend to get one!
