I was not expecting to like this camera. And this is because I subscribe to the notion that the best camera is the one you carry with you and that’s usually my iPhone. Yet so many of the memories that I have captured with my phone have been less than good quality — in fact, I delete more than I keep. But I have loved the part of sharing immediately. Yes, if you are in my close family and friends circle, I am the one that will send you pictures of the kids as they happen — Halloween costume, first ever catch in trapeze school, first time with 3-inch heels, and every newsworthy milestone (newsworthy is in the eye of the beholder, people!)
However, here is a camera with an amazing quality which also happens to be stylish and light, easy to carry, and you can immediately share over Wi-Fi or by adding cellular service and including it in your wireless plan. Imagine the possibilities? Great memories, instantly shared, that look as though they were taken with a professional camera. Special events anyone? I know what I will be using from now on!
The Samsung Galaxy Camera has four amazing things I love:
1. A whopping 21X optical zoom, wide angle lens – which helps turn a total novice like me into a fairly decent photographer
2. Voice commands – if you’re like me and never read manuals!
3. Built in editing tools – you know cropping, red eye and filters to make my skin look flawless (say no more!)
4. Wi-Fi to share immediately to your favorite networks or email to friends and family.
So if you’re tired of poor quality phone pictures and interested in a cool new gadget that will produce memories to keep — this may be the one for you.
MSRP: $775 in white or black.
