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.
So let’s see what is in the store with this little powerhouse.

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!
