Review summary from DPReview

DPReview Tested
February 2015
The Samsung Galaxy Camera 2 is an interesting product. It's essentially a smartphone - minus the phone - with a larger sensor and lens attached. Everything about it, from the plasticky build quality to Samsung's TouchWiz UI that sits on top of Android is taken straight from the company's smartphones. What makes the GC2 unique is its long zoom lens, larger-than-a-smartphone sensor, and the ability to run apps.

Personal takes

Barney Britton Barney Britton Editor
The Samsung Galaxy Camera 2 is an unusual product, built to satisfy the needs of a new generation of connected photographers who want to shoot with something more versatile than their phone. As such, although there are better 'traditional' cameras available, the Galaxy Camera 2 offers a unique combination of features.

Reasons to buy

  • The Power of Android: You can run millions of Android apps on the Galaxy Camera 2, with the same camera integration as a regular smartphone. The powerful quad-core processor makes for snappy performance, as well.
  • Huge display: The 4.8-inch, 720p LCD display is the biggest you'll find on any digital camera, and is a joy to use both for photo-taking and Android use.
  • The ultimate travel lens: You'd be hard-pressed to find a situation in which the GC2's 23-483mm lens doesn't work. It can shoot super-wide interiors and distant birds at the press of its zoom lever.

Things to consider

  • Image quality not up to snuff: The Galaxy Camera 2's image quality is only so-so when viewed at larger sizes, even compared to Samsung's own smartphones. That said, for social media sharing, where images are considerably downsized, it produces perfectly acceptable results.
  • Bring a spare: Smartphones generally don't have a lot of battery life and, since the GC2 is essentially a smartphone without the phone, it does as well. Don't expect to get through a day of shooting on a single charge.
  • Wi-Fi only: The original Galaxy Camera had 3G and 4G options, which made photo sharing easier than any other camera on the market. Samsung is only producing a Wi-Fi version of the Galaxy Camera 2, so you must find an open network for photo sharing, or use your smartphone as a bridge.

Use Light Trace mode to capture trails of light at night.

Photo Beam to Share Photos with One Touch

Like other Samsung devices, the GALAXY Camera 2 features Photo Beam technology, which makes it a snap to share photos. Simply tap the camera on any NFC-compatible smartphone to automatically share whichever image you're currently viewing.

Save Photos in Real Time with AutoShare

With Samsung's AutoShare feature, you can send photos instantly to an NFC-compatible smartphone or tablet--just as you're shooting them--over a Wi-Fi connection. This makes it easy to back up photos and share them wherever you are.

Remote ViewFinder to Control Camera at a Distance

When you connect the camera to select smartphones, you can use the Remote ViewFinder app to turn your phone into a viewfinder. You can control your camera from up to 30 feet away and preview images, adjust camera settings, frame the scene, and tag the shot location--all from your phone. When you need to take a group shot with yourself in it, Remote ViewFinder makes it easy.

Send Files Using Mobile Link, Even Without Wi-Fi

Based on NFC technology, Samsung's Mobile Link app lets you select and send photos or albums to a designated smartphone or tablet, even when you're away from a Wi-Fi hotspot, and without having to send the photos as a text message or an email. The app also lets you manage photos on your smartphone and save the changes automatically to the camera.

(Amazon doesn't allow fractional star ratings. If they did, my rating would be 3.5 stars.)

This Samsung Galaxy 2 camera is a combination of amazing and frustrating.

Amazing is the amount of function that you get with this camera. Frustrating is that with all the electronic goodies and goodness they've assuredly provided, they haven't matched that with a photo sensor/lens combination that's as good.

As a result, in the end you have something extremely cool that could have been king that crushes all competitors and all non-SLR cameras. But it doesn't...

Read on...

I'm a big fan of gadgets, and I have to admit that when I ordered this, I awaited its arrival with a lot more anticipation than normal. The idea here would make any tech head salivate

1) Take a high powered full featured Android platform phone, including a recent version of Android, a powerful processor, and huge beautiful touch screen.
2) Remove the phone functionality
3) Add a full sized photo lens and a big photo sensor

The pictures that most high end recent phones can take with their minuscule plastic lenses and small sensors are, frankly, amazing. The idea that you fix the weak link and replace the lens and sensor with versions appropriate for a high end all-in-one camera should result in really REALLY good photos.

So I was ultimately a little disappointed to discover that the lens/sensor in this camera ultimately is a bit of a letdown. Don't get me wrong: This camera takes way better pictures than you can take with an iPhone or Nokia top line phone (probably the best two photo phones right now). But they're inferior to the best competitive all in one digital cameras, such as those from Sony.

So instead of having the tablet with the camera built in...You have an even better camera with the tablet built in. Complete Android operation and wireless connectivity give you unprecedented control of taking, editing, and sharing all in one device. The 21x telephoto lens is amazing. And unlike other users here I find the picture quality to be just as amazing as well. The operation of the camera is simplified and intuitive thanks to it's 2gb of ram and 1.6 ghtz processor. It's ability to communicate and share photos on the fly is multifaceted and too long to describe here, just take a gander at the product description above these reviews and I think you'll be impressed. A lot of people have called this a phone camera without the phone, but if you were going to use a phone as a camera only and bought an unlocked one I think you'd find the price prohibitive for such restrictive use. So the less than $400 current price is a real bargain for a camera that does so many things and does them extremely well. I haven't even mentioned the HD display that is over 4 inches and 1080p capable with stunning clarity to set up those shots you're gonna be taking. I was surprised by the longevity of the battery which I used on four separate occasions before having to recharge. This is larger than those slim little pocket cameras but still portable enough to fit in a pocket if you wish. Be sure you read the manual or at least give it a cursory going over because you're gonna be surprised what all this camera will do and you'll miss out on knowing about most of it if you don't!!

All in all, it is the most impressive digital camera I've owned in this price range and even up to the $800 dollar range, so I recommend it without hesitation...the only reservation being 'read that manual' for sure.

[[VIDEOID:mo2YLWP8VGDB48D]]This camera is great if you understand what it is and what it isn't. This is not for pros or anyone who plans on doing significant post processing on their images in a program like Lightroom or Photoshop. That's because the camera has the same limits as any Android camera, which at present means you will be shooting JPG files. You cannot, as of yet, shoot Camera RAW, although that capability could be added at some point. Most people won't care about this limitation, but for those who do it could be a deal killer.

Having gotten that out of the way, let's get to the major pros and cons:

Pros
- If you never use your phone as a phone, this does everything else your Android phone does. It runs all the Android apps you already use.
- Big beautiful screen, it's really something.
- 21X optical zoom. That's just insane. This thing covers a huge range from up close and macro to way way over there.
- Comes with internal storage, expandable with micro SD card.
- You can run the stock camera software or any Android camera software you want on it, even Instagram or Snapchat.
- Big battery
- Wifi means easy sharing

Cons
- It's a little on the big and heavy side for what is essentially a point and shoot.
- If you turn it on to use the Android features, but last used it as a camera, the lens will open up, and depending on how you're holding it this could be a problem (see video)
- Image quality is good, not great.
- No dedicated buttons other than the flash release and the shutter button with zoom ring.
