Galaxy K zoom owners, what about Macro mode. Does it shoot small objects with details either with or without using optical zoom.

In section 10 of the review it mentions DLNA, but under "DLNA Support", the UK & Australian Samsung websites specifications say "No".

Great review. I love the final words section where you also suggest the separate Sony cameras.

Thank you for the explanation, Black Adder

Based on what you stated, the phote compare tool can't be relied on to give an accurate comparison of the quality of photos taken at 1x for the phones I mentioned. I guess I'll have to wait for a photo shootout involving the K Zoom before I make a decision on which one to buy.

> In reply to scarmage @ 2014-07-16 08:05 from rxiP - click to readit`s easy to explain. The sensor is the same size as the S4ZOOM, but has more pixels. So the image will be slightly worst if you use a cropped photo to look as large as with the other phones. The number of photons fallen on each pixel will be smaller as more pixels are on the same sensor. But when you watch the whole photo on a huge screen , you will see the true quality of the picture, the clarity will be better as more pixels are involved.

there is a whole scam here with testing cameras...all photos are made at zoom 1x and then to compare them you use a small part of the photo , a crop. Well, in Samsung K and S4ZOOM case, we owners, just have to use the Zoom feature which is optical , and we take the snapshot of the actual cropped part of the view that we need. That could mean we might use full 10X magnification, can any phone compare to what S4ZOOM or SG K can obtain ? Nope and never.

I was curious to see the camera's performance in low light conditions, but the review didn't mention it. I was very impressed by the Nokia Lumia 1020 optical stabilization on long exposure shots, and was wondering if the K Zoom has anything similar to it.
