Samsung galaxy pro review

A quick peek at the specifications tells you the camera isn't likely to be up to much. With just 3MP on offer and no flash, you really shouldn't be looking for greatness. But there's autofocus and a reasonable range of shooting modes, including panorama mode, so you do get something to play with at least.

Samsung galaxy pro camera image indoors

Indoors, if the lighting is fair to middling, you can get a reasonable shot. This one was taken in a café with low-level overhead lighting and is certainly good enough to pass on.

General outdoor shots are OK, and if there's a lot of ambient lighting you can get away with taking some decent photos. The camera does struggle if light and dark shades are widely variant, though.

Samsung galaxy pro camera image full zoom early evening

In the early evening, the camera did fairly well at capturing what light was around. This shot is taken at full 3x zoom and looks understandably patchy

Samsung galaxy pro camera image panorama

The camera combines eight shots to take a panorama image. You can see that there's a lot of 'bending' in the photo. This is far from the best panorama we've seen.

You've got several shooting modes on offer. Nothing out of the ordinary, but there's black and white, sepia and negative to play with.
