Galaxy NX smart camera features interchangeable lenses with 4G

Samsung galaxy nx Android cameraI feel I should almost apologise for the frequency of postings about Samsung Galaxy Android releases, but here is another one worthy of mention…

It’s the Galaxy NX smart camera, which is 4G-friendly and features interchangeable lenses (“from compact pancake lenses and an ultra-wide fisheye, to longer prime and zoom lenses”) and a 20.3 megapixel APS-C Sensor.

Samsung writes in the press release:

The 20.3MP APS-C Sensor produces images which are bright and detailed, even in low light conditions, while the DRIMe IV Image Signal Processer delivers the speed and accuracy that today’s photographers demand.

Its Advanced Hybrid Auto Focus (AF) System ensures accurate phase and contrast detection so you can capture crisp, vibrant shots, while the 1/6000 sec shutter speed and 8.6fps shooting means you can capture the action as it is happening. True 3D Creator also brings an added element of realism to the Galaxy NX results, allowing you to shoot images and movies in 3D with Samsung’s 45mm 2D/3D lens.

Other imaging related features detailed by the South Korean chaebol include:

  • Photo Suggest (gives you location-based recommendations of popular photography spots, sourced from a library of images taken by other photographers from around the world),
  • Story Album (look at your photos on one timeline, reframing and resizing them to create digital photo books which can be viewed and shared on other devices),
  • Smart Modes (30 options for choosing optimum settings for the environment you are capturing),
  • Multi Exposure (merges two different shots together to produce one distinctive image),
  • Animated Photo (connects continuous shots of up to five seconds, creating a moving GIF file),
  • Sound & Shot (stores sound and voice together as the picture is taken, so moments are captured exactly as they happen),
  • Camera Studio (to customise settings with your most frequently used applications or camera modes)

Only an announcement has been made – a tease, as it were – there is no product availability at the moment (it’s expected in the UK later in the “summer”). You can register your interest in the camera at www.samsung.com/uk/GalaxyNXCamera/

Note that the Galaxy NX will be available to buy in the UK as a 4G variant.

It runs Android 4.2 (Jelly Bean II).
