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!

excellent point and shoot for on the go action shots.
This camera is excellent for photo and video with the added benifit of editing and streaming. I have really enjoyed this camera and have recommended it to photographer friends. They all love it to. I do wish it had the ability to shot In raw.
Samsung Galaxy Camera
from Gig Harbor, WA, USA
While I believe it to be a high quality and well thought out product, I regret not waiting until I upgraded my Samsung Galaxy phone, which shares many of the same features as the camera, but with the added versatility of phone function. I am regretting the purchase only because it seems redundant with the features and uses of my Samsung 4 camera. Also, at time of purchase and even via the Samsung website, it is not clear what type of memory card and or adaptor I need to use with this phone, compared with previous digital cameras I have owned. Bottom line, probably more complicated than necessary if one has a reasonably current generation smart phone.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
I like the camera, but it didn't work as well as I thought for indoor sports. Now the lens cover sticks sometimes when the camera turns on. Still, I am impressed with the level of technology here.

I love his cam. Took it on vacation to Europe, and came home with fantastic pictures. As an added bonus, it functions as a fantastic smart device as well. Its a little quirky to hold, but that's a minor complaint relative to the value
Love it, the camera for dummies
Love this camera. Awesome pictures quick reaction , able to get the shots that my husband can't with his more expensive professional camera . It is the DOS for dummies camera, but also allows you to create your own unique photos.

The camera is amazing! It has so many more features than I ever expected!
from Hillsboro, NH, USA
The quality of pictures that I have gotten from this camera is top notch. Even with zooming in to its fullest potential the pictures are sharp and show amazing detail. I like how I can seamlessly share pictured between all my Samsung devices!
The combination of an Android Tablet and a feature rich camera (try a 170 page User Manual) make for a gadget lovers dream. Fast from shoot to edit to ordering prints in minutes. Connection to cloud really opens up a limitless storage solution all in the palm of your hand. Really like the old school look of the camera, especially with the old style leather case I bought for scratch protection.
gotta have this camera in your arsenal
from New Jersey
