Phones that have an inbuilt camera are ruling the market right now but that might not be the trend anymore. As people started using their phones for taking pictures, the demand for digital cameras was affected. But manufacturers got intelligent and innovated a bit. They have come up with digicams that run an operating system, much like the smartphones these days.
Mobile phones have the sharing capability that earlier cameras didn’t have. However, with digital cameras that have the Android operating system, sharing becomes easy. Samsung, Nikon, and Polaroid are some of the companies who’ve launched Android cameras as of now. Maybe, we would get to see many more of these in future. Now let’s see what’s in store for you in these smart Android cameras.
Samsung is already a leader in selling Android-based smartphones. They just brought a bit of their mobile phones to the Galaxy Camera, which runs on the Android Jelly Bean operating system. You can shoot, edit, and share your pictures with this 16-megapixel, 21x zoom lens camera that has a 4.77’’ HD Super Clear Touch Display. The feature that sets it apart from the rest is that it works even when you don’t have Wi-Fi around. Yes, it has got 3G capabilities for Internet access. It’s much like a phone, though you cannot make calls with this one. That’s one feature that’s missing for now. Who knows, you might be able to call others from your camera in future! (Price: USD 499.99).
This one is not just a point-and-shoot camera. It’s something more than that. Polaroid went a step ahead and introduced Android on a camera with interchangeable lenses. The 18-megapixel Polaroid iM1836 runs on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and is also capable of shooting, editing, and sharing pictures much like the one from Samsung. It comes with a 10-30 mm zoom lens and you can also shoot videos with a resolution of 1080 pixels. However, unlike the Samsung Galaxy Camera, you cannot access the Internet without Wi-Fi to share your pictures. (Expected price: USD 399).
Nikon has also released a point-and-shoot Android camera that allows you to share your pictures using Wi-Fi. You can also have all the Android apps for photography on it, much like the Samsung Galaxy Camera and Polaroid iM1836. Click high quality pictures and shoot Full HD videos with the 16-megapixel, 10x zoom lens Nikon COOLPIX S800c. Then instantly share them right from your camera. Email them to your friends or post them on online social networks. What’s more, you can also wirelessly transfer them to your laptop, smartphone, or tablet. (Price: USD 349.95).
So, these are the top cameras powered by Android, which are set to redefine photography. Don’t worry about sharing the pictures you click from your camera as social integration makes this quite easy. No need to transfer photographs to a computer to edit or share them anymore! Welcome the new breed of digital cameras!
