Here we are. We finally have THE forts real smartcamera and no folks, it is not Apple that pulled the trigger first, but Samsung that has learnt both the camera manufacturing and telecommunications know-how. The Galaxy Camera can be summed up as a WB850F camera fused with a Galaxy S III smartphone. From the WB850 or WB850F, the Galaxy Camera inherits from its 16MP backlit CMOS sensor with Full HD movie recording and its 21x zoom lens featuring an interesting wide-angle position (23-482mm). From the Galaxy S 3, the Galaxy Camera has borrowed the 3G/4G/Wi-Fi connexion and the 4.8″ multitouch AMOLED screen. It will be operated by the latest Android OS, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.
Not as connected as the Galaxy Camera, yesterday, Sony announced its Wi-Fi mirrorless camera based on the NEX-5N, the Sony NEX-5R.
