AT&T selling Samsung Galaxy Camera for $500 starting Nov. 16
Quickly following its UK release, Samsung announced that it will begin selling the Samsung Galaxy Camera in the U.S. on the AT&T 4G mobile network on Friday, Nov. 16.
The 16-megapixel camera has 21x optical zoom and comes with built-in “photo wizard” editing software. The Galaxy Camera is expected to change mobile photography by introducing 3G/4G and Wi-Fi capability with the Android platform to a point-and-shoot camera. This means that the camera will work like a smartphone in terms of connection and the ability to add third-party applications, but with photographic capabilities beyond all current smartphone industry standards.
The Galaxy Camera runs Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean). Its 1.4 GHz processor promises quick image capture and editing on its 4.8-inch screen.
Samsung touts the Galaxy Camera’s manual controls in “Expert Mode,” which allow control of shutter speed, aperture and ISO. Its automatic “Smart Mode” captures with HDR mode, light painting and features like “Best Face” and “Best Photo,” which are designed to help photographers pick the best photo out of the bunch.
Buyers interested in purchasing the Galaxy Camera can do so on Friday, Nov. 16, for $499.99 from AT&T’s website or select retail stores. Samsung is offering $100 off the Galaxy Camera for customers who buy a Samsung Smartphone. The AT&T version of the camera will offer a HSPA+ connection, not the faster LTE system. Data plans are sold separately.
