Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom – Half-Camera, Half-Smartphone – Could it be the tipping point for MoJo on Android? via @engadget

 

 

Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom is Half-Camera, Half-Smartphone. David McClelland did a great review of the original Samsung Galaxy Camera last December. The thing I was quite surprised about at the time was that you could not use the zoom control while shooting video! Well today Samsung have taken a second stab at the digitalcamera/smartphone hybrid with the announcement of Galaxy S4 ZOOM. Fingers crossed I will be able to get access to a demo unit once it starts shipping, but the key question for me (for a second time) is can this Android powered camera with a massive 10X optical zoom dominate the iPhone5 (or soon to be released 5s) for Mobile Journalism?

For that answer we shall have to wait but in the interim head over to Engadget and/or Mashable for a preview and to read the full press release.

  1. I’m hoping to be able to get my hands on one later this week Glen, I’ll report back…

  2. Samsung is the first one to make a product like this and through this they are number 1.
