So basically this is like a thick 4.8in tablet, with a good lens on it? That’s what I looks like to me.
Is tempting though, but I do have a Sony HX5V (pre-ordered it, years ago)
Think this is worth the upgrade?
Here’s the PDF manual. Samsung’s site makes you jump through a couple of hoops and then still obscures the direct link with a bit of Javasc**ript.
The manual and the reviews linked above talk about the HSDPA cellular capabilities. Does this have the SIM slot? I’m fine getting my own SIM; I just want to know if this does have the slot.
I can’t tell you if it’s worth the upgrade but can tell you that it’s more than just “a good lens.” It also has a superior sensor, optical stabilization (as opposed to electronic stabilization which adds noise) and the slow motion 120fps mode. None of those can be achieved by software alone.
There are two versions of this: the GC100 was the original, with a 4G mobile data connection, and the product for sale is the GC110, which is a cheaper version with WiFi only. They are otherwise identical.
I’m trying to figure out why I need Android in my camera. Photo editing tools aren’t all that powerful (and it’s crazy to do it on a 4" screen) and the additional power draw from the extra chips (CPU, RAM, & Flash) would be a detriment imho.
I was wondering that, too, until I noticed I can’t play Flappy Bird on my 1D-X. I’m trashing my seemingly useless SLR in favor of something so useful as Android.
Now on a more serious note, I could use this with some of the azimuth apps to figure out perfect lighting, etc. But most of us have a smart phone already. And if we’re using azimuth apps, I would imagine we are using equipment a bit more powerful than a compact zoom. Could be wrong, though…
Nice camera but I got mine with 4G and wireless for $175 so this is no deal.
A4C offers the refurbished Unlocked Samsung Galaxy 16.3-Megapixel 4G Android Digital Camera in White, model no. EK-GC100, for $174.95 with free shipping. That’s $5 under our mention from two weeks ago and the lowest total price we’ve seen. (It’s also $120 less than the best price we could find for a new unit in any color elsewhere.) This quad-band 4G camera includes a 4.8" 1280x720 touchscreen LCD, Samsung Exynos 4412 quad-core processor, 21x optical zoom, 8GB internal memory, 802.11n wireless, Bluetooth, optical image stabilization, SD card slot, and Android 4.1 OS (Jelly Bean). Deal ends September 17. Still available but now price is $179.95 again with 4G.
Thanks for the info!
Oddly enough, I grabbed one of the Freedompop phones so I could remove the camera (security requirement for work) and have an Android device. Now here’s an Android whose entire point is use as a camera. I want it. It just may be time to replace my old snapshot camera.
Just checked A4C and if you click the “Specials” tab, the camera is listed there. Also, the top banner on the page states you can save 10% with the code “FALL10” which would amount to $18 off for a price of $161.95!! Cool!
I wonder how many wooters paid at least $235, or more with tax, on the woot model? That’s $73 extra for a model without the 4G feature!
Hmm. I don’t see it under Specials, but I did find it by doing a search of the site, for $179.95. Which is still about $50 less than Woot’s price, for a camera that appears to be identical except for also having 4G functionality.
Click the “Specials” tab and it loads a page of items. It doesn’t show in the drop-down list. Also, out of curiosity, I tried the coupon code “FALL10” and IT DOES take $18 off the sale price!
I don’t know if it is the best camera, or even the best tablet,but it is definitely the most fun digital camera I have played with. It is actually a good camera. I made a print at 18" x 24" and it looks as good as my 16MP DSLR enlarged to the same size…I took a couple fo videos and they look great on my 1080p HDTV. I am unabashedly a tablet geek. To have this fully functional (and it IS fully functional) tablet in a walk around camera is really nice. It is as good as my MOTO X at everything I have thrown at it. It does not do Google cards and “Google Now” since it is “only” JB and you need KK for them. I am really happy with it…
