I had never considered getting a Samsung camera (full disclosure, I have a Galaxy Note 3 which I love) and I was almost ready to purchase another brand when I saw a pile of boxes for the camera and took a closer look. We were able to play around with a demo model and I was amazed at the features that were packed into its slim case. I've been fiddling around with them getting ready for a trip to Europe and am looking forward to being able to get some amazing photos with such a tiny footprint in my backpack. Is there anything that Samsung doesn't do?

The main feature of this device suppose to be Android operating system but it is also the biggest shortcoming. A camera with the same photo quality and some built-for-camera operating system costs a third of this price and it doesn't ask you to update app, doesn't nags with with a year old hangouts messages and has a lot of features when it comes to photography. Image compression is awful - it's not obvious on a small screen but once you zoom in or look at a big screen it looks terrible and there's no way to adjust the level of compression. Internet connection sharing over bluetooth form iOS device is not working and the only way is Wifi sharing which literally takes 10 times more energy. Display is very bright - actually too bright and when you adjust the settings on Snapseed app it looks to dark on the other devices! Dynamic range is very low - even with photo modes like "Rich tone" which is 3 images bracketing HDR composition. Third party app "HDR pro" which works great on iOS on android misses the main features, gets in the way with built in camera interface and freezes the whole system which requires a hard reset. And there is a lot of small messy android related details that interact with camera features and make the whole user experience disappointing. The only reason I'm still using it is a 21x zoom in your pocket which is great when traveling and you don't feel like taking a dSLR out of the bag and the subject is too far for an iPhone!

Is not only a camera, but also a tablet. The highest technology product that i have ever seen. I love this super smart camera.
love this camera
its amazing it takes great pics and with the smart feature its so easy to get your pics.
Just returned from a one week trip, the first chance to put my camera to work. Results were what I had hoped for. Still learning more about the camera but the auto mode worked well in a wide variety of situations.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
A camera with android OS is the bomb.
from Grand Forks ND
The camera has a fast startup, great pictures and a vibrant screen. The zoom is pretty good, 21X zoom, it would be sweet if Samsung could have squeezed another 4X out of the same size camera body. The real deal maker here here for me is the android OS. I just use my Samsumg Edge as the WiFi hotspot and sharing with my address book and my Swift Key keyboard are synced with my phones. Auto upload to Dropbox and it's all good. I can use BT to stream Spotify and my google wallet for purchases so I don't need to carry any cash or credit cards on the go. Samsung was thinking outside the box again.....
I love it
from Manassas, VA, USA
I love love love the camera. I hate that I'm such a horrible photographer. This camera has so much potential to take the best photos and videos ever. It's all operator error. :) I would buy this camera again in an instant and recommend it to everyone!
Easy to use
from Austin, Texas
I am not great with electronics but this camera is so easy to use that I have been able to figure out how to use it without anyone's help
from North Carolina
I love this camera. The photos are sharp and crisp. The colors are true. After using this Samsung camera, given the ease of use and results, I am considering switching to a Samsung phone too.
This camera makes me feel like a professional photographer
from Rockville, MD
I love the great pictures from smart phones and wanted to be able to take pictures like that. I don't have a smart phone but I happened to see this Samsung Galaxy camera featured on an online shopping company and I decided I wanted to buy this camera. I was nervous about setting up this camera and learning how to use it but I've been 'playing' with it every week. I LOVE how this camera takes pictures and how the pictures come out, so professional looking. There is also a tablet feature to this camera and I was able to access my email. You have to realize that I don't have experience with a smart phone or a tablet or anything like that. I'm not familiar with all the different ways of using these devices. This camera has many of those same features and if you're comfortable with using those devices, then you'll love this camera. (This camera has special features that I probably am not even aware of.) I need to learn a lot more about this camera but I am very happy with this camera. I feel like I stepped a little farther into the world of modern technology. I know this review won't help more techno-advanced camera enthusiasts but for someone wanting something a little more advanced, I recommend this camera.
