The future is here. It’s just not ready for the mass market. Up until now, we have had phones with great connectivity but limited photographic capability and digital SLRs with great photographic capabilities but essentially no ability to communicate.
Now, in the first of what I hope will be more product announcements, Samsung has released the Galaxy NX, which takes full advantage of the Android operating system.The Galaxy NX is a mirrorless camera that allows users to take full advantage of all the specialized photo apps that are available for this operating system.
It is overpriced, selling for almost $1700 on Amazon, but should provide a basis for other cameras that combine photographic capabilities with the flexibility of a camera phone.
Are you listening Apple, Canon and Nikon?
