Samsung is not content with leading the Smartphone race and is now burning its midnight oil to make a mark with its camera lineup. Samsung is not waiting for the CES to unveil its camera lineup. The Company has just unveiled its Galaxy Camera 2 and NX30, both of which are based around the NFC- “Tag & Go” sharing feature. Users will be able to tap their phone against either shooter to begin transferring photos. The devices also afford better control through the refurbished Remote Viewfinder mobile apps that show the same settings you’d find on the cameras themselves.
The refurbishment done on each model varies greatly. The Galaxy Camera 2 which is based on the Android platform still features 16-megapixel sensor, 21x zoom lens and 4.8-inch LCD, much akin to its predecessors. However it features better battery capacity of 2000mAh and the weight is now done to 9.2 ounces. Other upgrades include the .6GHz quad-core processor with 2GB of RAM, and an update to Android 4.3. The Android 4.3 brings along with it slow-motion video as well as independent autoexposure and autofocus controls.
NX30 builds further on the NX20 model with significant upgrades to image quality and the display. Based on the mirrorless design the cam boasts a more light-sensitive 20.3-megapixel sensor and a fast hybrid auto focusing system that takes just 80millisecond to find its subject.
Additionally, the NX30features a much brighter Super AMOLED based touchscreen which not only swivel but also tilt. There is also a provision of a new 3.5mm microphone input. The lens is also pretty high class and includes a quiet f2-2.8 lens and a video-friendly, f3.5-5.6 power zoom unit. Samsun has not spilled the details of the launch details for either the NX30 or the Galaxy Camera 2, but we will be tracking this news and bring the latest on this developing story, so keep connected to this spot.
