Not a desperately serious thread on the new Galaxy S4 zoom. To me this is one of the most interesting camera launches of the year (although I probably wont buy one.) It is probably the first real marriage of a top smart phone with a decent P&S camera. Yes I know there was the Nokia Pureview but noone is seriously going to use a symbian phone - the Galaxy S4 is just about the most popular smartphone on the planet. The camera specs are pretty impressive 10x optical zoom f3.5-6.3 (Leica slow) 16 mp camera It is also priced to sell. The phone is actually 20% cheaper than the old Galaxy camera and priced at about the same as a Galaxy S4. Here is a review of the camera phone (in Russian) ÐžÐ±Ð·Ð¾Ñ€ Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom (SM-C101): ÑÐ°Ð¼Ñ‹Ð¹ Ð¼Ð¾Ñ‰Ð½Ñ‹Ð¹ ÐºÐ°Ð¼ÐµÑ€Ð¾Ñ„Ð¾Ð½ / [email protected] There is a lot to like about the camera - zoom by twisting the lens, removable battery, swappable SD card and all the Samsung Android goodies and features. So do you think it is going to be a 'hit' or a 'miss' - in that most people are not interested. Personally I am torn. If pressed I think I would go with a 'miss'. I think many people are quite happy that their smartphone camera is photographically challenged. That they are quite happy when they take a snap to say it is 'only a smartphone shot'. Perhaps they dont want a better camera because it places pressure to get a better shot.
