The Samsung GALAXY NX has won the European Photo Innovation 2013-2014 EISA Award. The GALAXY NX pairs the Android OS with a mirrorless interchangeable lens camera featuring a 4.8-inch LCD touchscreen and all the connectivity that comes with Android.
No manufacturer has done more than Samsung in the quest for making cameras that allow the photographer to communicate with the outside world. With the GALAXY NX, Samsung is showing us once again the future world of ‘connected’ photography. This is the first time an advanced system camera has been combined with a modern interactive 4.8-inch touchscreen tablet. Through its interchangeable lens system and its use of the Android 4.2.2 operating system, the GALAXY NX promises a real integration of high quality digital photography, mobile editing and full-time connectivity.
Samsung has teamed up with Evernote to offer expanded sharing functionality on the Samsung WB250F SMART camera. Through the new partnership, WB250F users will be able to share their images to Evernote and have them synched across connected devices. This feature will be available via a software upgrade on Samsung.com, and will complement the WB250F’s robust portfolio of integrated in-camera sharing platforms, including email, Facebook and YouTube.
