The new Samsung Galaxy Camera is a new Android OS based camera that is a combination of a full “point and shoot” digital camera, with a complete Android OS and touch screen body.

Just like a tablet, it is always connected with integrated 3G/4G radios and WiFi allowing you to instantly share any picture you take in the same way you would on your Android handset. But unlike most phone cameras, the Galaxy Camera has a full 16.3 mega-pixel BSI CMOS sensor and 21x Super Long Optical Zoom. It also has Optical Image Stabilization built in so pictures and video shot at 720P should look nice and smooth even when you aren’t shooting from the most stable base. And, because it runs Android 4.1 is has all the capabilities you’d expect for editing, optimising and sharing your photos and videos on social networks like Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

My only possible concern would be how long the 1,650mAh battery will cope with the motorised zoom function, large 4.8″ 1280*720 touch screen display and 4G radio. Samsung quote up to 90 minutes of video recording, or up to 340 still images captured which if accurate should be fine for most consumers.

Samsung have teamed up with James Franco, a self confessed multitasker, to demonstrate the range of features the new Galaxy Camera brings you, including the awesome Eyes Wide Shut feature allowing you to take multiple snaps of a group shot and pick the best individual face shot across all the pictures, combining to produce the best overall image with everyone smiling and not blinking!
