I recall many years back, I discussed with my photography peers about building phone capabilities in a camera so that one can share photos easily online. The day has finally arrived.
Today, Samsung Singapore announces the GALAXY NX, the first 3G/LTE Connected Compact Camera System (CSC) with interchangeable lenses. This is going to facilitate photo sharing to a huge extent without sacrificing image quality.
I’m not sure how many people will actually use Android apps extensively on a large camera like a phone or tablet, but the capability and convenience is there.
My only concern is the lack of hardware buttons. Plus, its over-reliance on touch controls means there may be control lags and accidental touches when the camera is hanging around your neck.
But with the GALAXY NX, I can bring one less device out to access my favourite Android apps.
Looking forward to a hands-on review so that I can share my experience with you.
