We now have a production sample of the Galaxy Camera and our full review in on its way. The camera has a high-quality feel and although it has lots of options and some pretty advanced controls, it's very easy to use.
The Samsung Galaxy Camera will have a full price of around £399 (around $630) in UK, and will be available from around mid-October.
The 16 million pixel, 1/2.3 inch CMOS sensor should be capable of capturing images that are on a par with other compact cameras and significantly better than those from the average smartphone. However, the lens has a wide zoom range (21x) and it will be interesting to see if this compromises the image quality at all.
We're looking forward to receiving a full-production sample for our full Samsung Galaxy Camera review. As well as testing the usual photographic aspects, looking at sharpness, dynamic range and the like, we'll try out a few apps and share images via the Wi-Fi connectivity.
