I now wants from every one to apologize for Nokia EOS design...It's very modern comparing to this thick ugly piece of cake
9.7 mm for EOS vs 4 cm for ugly device....I love you Nokia :)
Wow, I take back what I said about EOS. EOS is a thing of beauty compared to this!
Why they call it S4 Zoom tho? The only thing it sort of has in common is the ug body. Wish Sammy would compromise less.
Men OF Tech, 08 Jun 2013Now , Compare Lumia 928 to SAMSUNG GALAXY ZOOM.. Nokia Lose... At least the 920 still looks like a phone! Hell, even Nokia EOS is still a phone!
The optimus autobot, 08 Jun 2013Super Glue + Camera + phone = sammy camera phoneHa ha super thought dude...ROFL!
It's like Samsung designers didn't understand that when you have a phone and a camera, the phone takes precedence. Because it is ridiculous to stick a camera to your face to answer a call.
are you sure this can be called as phone?
the way u can't call a tab as phone just coz it has gsm support
same way this can't be called as phone looking at its dimensions
Its the new version Galaxy Camera with call, Galaxy S4 Zoom is just moniker, to let people think its a S4 with better camera.
- Optical zoom 10x.. I can roughly predict it is around 220mm (35mm). With that focal length, you need at least 1/200 shutter speed to eliminate handshake. (According to reciprocal rule).
- With that high of shutter speed, the ISO must be high also.
- The lens design also shows it is not a constant aperture zoom lens, as you zoom further, the aperture becomes smaller, causing increment of ISO (shutter speed remains constants)
- With that small sensor, how it's going to perform well, even in daylight, when the focal length is 100mm+.
- The situation worsen as the lens is cost cutting one.
Uh oh... Sammy is in trouble with this ugly cameraphone! Haha! What a shame! Sammy's designers should be fired! Sony will surely win the battle of cameraphones with all the specs it has under the hood with the best design as always by the Japanese company. This is even worse looking than the Pureview 808 which looked horrible too! I hope Nokia will not do the same mistake like this fugly phone!
Samsung had one job to put a good camera on a phone and this the result. Pfffffff. lol. 808 had put galaxy camera to dust, eos will put this into a dung.
It will be super funny when people will answer their phone on this, it will be like "Why are you talking to your camera?"
And now Samsung fans wont mind the bulk and thickness, because it is made by their beloved company, they will call this innovation, they will say it is necessary. Now they will suddenly turn onto photography experts teaching us the sensor size n all, and when Nokia did an better job, all were like, it looks ugly, look at that large bump, this is a brick. Hypocrisy to its maximum.
Hoe does this show that Nokia's cameras are outdated?
How does this beat Pure View? Unless it's rockin' the CMOS from a DSLR, I seriously doubt this...abortion will have much over the 808, nor EOS. Samsung doesn't has the lenses, doesn't have R&D, doesn't have the time to do it right. They'll crap this out and it'll be off the radar 4 months later, if they even support it that long.
