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...
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. In bright light, this camera takes quite good photos: Clear, detailed, good colors. I'd call the pictures taken in good light competitive with other high end all-in-one cameras. But as you get towards artificial lighting or low lighting, and your effective ISO increases, picture quality degrades pretty quickly. These photos are noisy and lacking in fine detail. On the upside, even in low light, I was surprised at the relative accuracy of the colors.
The built in flash helps, and if you are taking staged photos indoors with the flash, you should be happy with those.
It's unfortunate that the sensor/lens is ultimately something of a letdown. Because in most other respects this is an amazing device. You can easily connect it to your wireless network (or to your phone, if you can set up a wireless access point) and share the photos you are taking within seconds of taking them. The camera comes with a free 50Gb Dropbox account (valid for 2 years), which gives you tons of online space to which you can automatically upload photos.
Since this is a full featured Android platform, you can install and use any/all of your favorite Android photo editing software. The camera comes pre-installed with a number of good editing tools, as well. A custom set of photo presets and controls come with this camera and they are both extremely easy to navigate and feature some pretty cool ones (a selfie mode that waits until you're smiling to take your pic; a low light mode that takes several photos and combines them rather than increasing the ISO, etc And there are a lot of things in that etc...) The huge (by camera standards) LCD screen means you can actually see your photos very well, and it's not unreasonable to actually do decent editing on the camera...(The LCD screen is hard to see in direct sunlight, however). You can also take pictures by just touching a circle on the LCD screen--you don't have to push the shutter release button. This is useful for keeping the camera still when taking low light shots. It has a burst mode that takes around 4 pictures a second. I found this mode be OK, but far inferior to the performance of my Sony NEX-3 system, which is my go-to for mid-sumer high quality photos these days.
On the whole, the interface and screen beat ANY traditional camera system by a HUGE margin. I love this aspect of the camera. Did I mention it's also very responsive?
Which is why the mediocre (at the price point) lens/sensor is so unfortunate.
In terms of ergonomics, this camera is bigger and heavier than you probably expect. The idea of a phone + real lens seems like it would be somewhat lighter than it actually is. And the weight is a bit oddly distributed. After using it for a little while, you get used to this, and I don't think this is a serious issue. But when you first take it out of the box, you will probably be a bit surprised at the weight.
Charging is done via a standard micro USB cable, which is nice. Being a phone (without the phone), this camera also has standard smartphone connection features, including Bluetooth, NFC, etc. It also has GPS built in, ~2.8 Gb of available internal memory (there are 8Gb of internal memory but the rest is used by the OS), and the ability to add a micro SD card (although since it can upload your photos to the cloud, you might not bother).
I find myself reaching for this camera very frequently for family events because it's so much fun and because I can share photos so easily and quickly. For low light work or if I need good, fast burst photography, I am using other cameras (primarily the Sony NEX-3).
In the end, I wish the sensor/lens were better, and that this would be the ONLY camera I'd be reaching for. Maybe next version. But this is still quite fun and quite useful. You'll need to decide if, at the price, the pros outnumber the cons for the uses you'd have for it...
Let me start with the core issue I have with this camera: I have to either leave my data open to anyone who happens to pick up or find my camera or I have to jump through the login hoop to take pictures. I've had two motorola phone and the Google Nexus 6 and with all three of those phones there is either a gesture I can make, or a shortcut I can add to the lock screen that allows me to take pictures without having to unlock the device. With the Samsung Galaxy Camera 2 I don't have that option. So either I leave my android device open for perusal by anyone or I miss pictures because I can't just pick it up and take a picture.
You might say "all other cameras let people look through your pictures, why is it different with this one?". Easy answer, normal cameras don't also give access to email, IM, social media, and anything else the device may connect to. I've considered opening a Google account just for this camera because part of the point of an Android device is how it integrates with Google.
As for the rest of the camera I have some other annoyances / issues. I've used this camera for a couple of weeks now including one trip out of state and have a few items:
Battery - Yes the battery runs our very quickly, you show expect that from this type of devices and buy a backup battery and external charger.
Interface - Samsung decided that they would implement Android, but do something completely different for the settings app. There wasn't a good reason to do that and it ends up hiding settings and features from you that there is no reason to hide.
Picture Quality - In good circumstances the pictures it take are quite good, but if there is backlighting it doesn't let you select another part of the screen to correct the picture (at least you can go into the manual settings to correct for that) and the picture quality at night isn't as good as many other phone cameras I've used (especially the Lumina from 3 years ago).
Things I like:
Integration with Google - I really like that by the time I'm unpacked from home my pictures are already in Google Photos/Picasa, I also like how I can email photos or send them with TXT/IM (Hangouts) from anywhere with Wifi. I found myself keeping my phone in hotspot mode (which uses up the battery even faster on the Samsung camera) and was able to view the pictures on my tablet just a few minutes after they were taken.
Zoom - this camera has a marvelous zoom with good optics. Except for night shooting It's been as good, or better, than many of the other mid-level point-and-shoot digital cameras I've used over the last couple of years.
Feeling in hand - the camera just feels good in my hand, many point-and-shoot cameras are too small, but this one seems to balance size and form a bit better so it fits in my larger hands, being a bit heavy may be a downside for some people.
So, in the end I'm not returning it but it also hasn't completely replaced my other main point-and-shoot which is what I was hoping to do. Anytime I have a backlight shot or it's evening/night I fall back to another camera.
