Review summary from DPReview
“ 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. ”

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.Read more ›
The Camera runs the Android operating system. That means if you have an android phone, you will already be pretty familiar with this camera. The camera part will probably be more in depth than the camera you have on your phone. It also means you can run just about any app you can on your phone. You might not want to, but you can. Personally I turned off syncing for Google Books, GMail, NewStand, and Google Movies.
The Camera comes with a lot of modes from full auto to Expert modes where you can set everything your self. I think the image quality is great. I uploaded 2 photos taken with my camera. One uses fireworks mode.Read more ›
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.
