I was immediately captivated by it, as I could see the possibilities for saving me time (which is a very precious resource). The camera married photographic technology with smart phone capability. From the front, it looks like a normal camera, but from the back, it has a huge touch screen, just like you would use on your Smart phone, whatever the brand.
The exciting thing about the Samsung Galaxy Camera is that I can take a fantastic photo, apply effects to it in camera, and then immediately upload it onto Facebook, Twitter, Flickr or Instagram and I can email it to whomever I want (usually a doting grandparent). It also takes great video, although I haven’t had the opportunity to play with it yet.
So I was ecstatic when Samsung contacted me to ask me to be one of their Imagelogers, a group of photographers around the world who take images with the camera and then upload five images every Friday to show people what we’ve been up to. This is my first post.
Every time I pull out the camera since I received it, people comment on it, whether they are friends or strangers. People have obviously taken notice of this new class of camera and are watching it with interest. And well they should. So far, I think it’s pretty amazing.
I took these photos on a walk around Merton Abbey Mills, which is where my studio is located. Wednesday morning, we all woke up to a beautiful, frosty world. These are my images.
