Samsung produces a mobile that takes on traditional compact cameras
It was only a matter of time before one of the leading mobile vendors produced a phone that had a 12 megapixel camera, and it looks like Samsung is the first to announce such a unit.
The Samsung Pixon12 has a full touch screen, the unit is taking on some of the dedicated camera compacts, but now with the phone functionality.
Once the camera is turned on, users can aim and snap, capturing images as fast as today’s advanced digital camera. Samsung Pixon12 also features fast image saving for next shot, so users can move to next shot within around 2 seconds.
Touch Auto-Focus (AF) tracking allows users can select a focus point with the touch of a finger, after which the AF function will automatically follow the object, keeping it in focus even as it moves across the screen.
Its Smart Auto feature allows users to capture images as the camera automatically changes the scene and mode based on its object, background and lighting.
After snapping, users can re-live and enjoy the pictures on the Pixon12’s 3.1-inch AMOLED screen. The screen has a contrast ratio of 10,000:1 while providing power-saving features that are claimed to increase battery life.
