Will The New Samsung Voice Activated 3G/4G Galaxy Camera Inspire a 2nd round of #tradeandsave-ing for me @RadioShack? YES!
Yes…this is about the New Samsung Galaxy Camera DOWN THERE a little farther…
…but before we go straight to the next possible item on our wish lists, I wanted to quickly share why every time a new gadget or tech comes out that is drool-a-ble, I already have a plan on how to attain it FOR LESS.
If you had not heard, I recently treated myself to the awesome Nikon J1 in WHITE - because:
(A) It’s not only gorgeous in white, it’s fast, easy to use and has interchangeable lenses
(B) It takes incredible low light pictures with and without the flash (unlike my iPhone) + HD video
(C) It so compact, it fits in my purse + hangs comfortably from the GLITTERY silver wristlet allowing me to upgrade the pictorial documentation of my daily adventures (you still post via mobile if you use an eye-fi card!)
(D) RadioShack’s #TradeAndSave program enabled me to buy $700 worth of equipment that only felt like $350 to my wallet
Umm, getting the price down to the price of “other cameras that aren’t as awesome” ~ that’s HUGE ~ and between me, you and the internet, (D) is absolutely WHY “The Camera I WISH I owned” and probably would just pine for easily became “The Camera I OWN and LOVE sooooo much.”
AND NOW,I see my newly acquired #TradeAndSave mentality has taken over and I am already planning which drawers in The Bat Cave (my Office) and shelves in our garage I will be raiding to snag me this nifty sounding (I seem to have a penchant for white) Samsung Galaxy Camera highlighted below.
Samsung unveiled on Wednesday during the 2012 IFA conference in Berlin an Android-powered Galaxy Camera you can partially control with your voice.
The new device, which looks like a camera in the front and a smartphone in the back, runs on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, and allows users to shoot, edit and share pictures with their social networks. But perhaps one of the most innovative features of the Galaxy Camera is its voice-control capabilities. You can tell the device to “zoom in” and “shoot” while snapping pictures.
Other specs include a 21x optical touch zoom lens, a 4.8-inch HD Super Clear LCD display and a bright 16M BSI CMOS sensor and a quad-core processor. The Galaxy Camera also enables connectivity through 3G and 4G.
“The Galaxy Camera opens a new visual communication era and shifts a paradigm in communication,” said JK Shin, president of IT and Mobile Communications Division at Samsung Electronics, in a statement. “As we increasingly articulate our experiences through pictures and videos, the Galaxy Camera has been created to lead the way in this new era of visual communication. Communication becomes more vivid and lively with high quality images and instant sharing anywhere, anytime.”
The device is designed in part to make it easy for users to upload pictures to social networks, such as Facebook and Instagram, similar to the Android-powered model Nikon announced earlier in August. It’s also possible to browse the web and access apps directly from the camera to help with the editing process.
Another perk is that it comes with “Auto Cloud Backup,” which automatically saves photos into Samsung’s AllShare cloud service. Users can also connect to other Galaxy devices, including the Galaxy S III and the recently announced Galaxy Note II to transfer pictures.
