Samsung GALAXY K zoom – a New Camera-Specialised Smartphone

As a camera-specialised smartphone, the Samsung GALAXY K zoom offers an advanced technical camera system designed to offer the control and functionality of a professional camera, ensuring that the important moments are never missed and always captured with complete clarity.

Samsung GALAXY K zoom Key Product Highlights:

  • New retracting lens technology that provides 10x optical zoom in a remarkably slim and chic body, coupled with a 20.7 megapixel BSI CMOS sensor for ultra-clear, ultra-detailed images
  • Excels in low light conditions with Xenon Flash providing a brighter light than LEDs to improve the quality of the image with natural brilliance and Optical Image Stabilizer (OIS) to reduce blur caused by movement
  • AF/AE Separation (Auto Focus/ Auto Exposure Separation) for the precise balance of light and clarity
  • Next-generation Pro Suggest mode which offers 5 optimised filter settings
  • Selfie Alarm that allows users to take timed selfies with ease, and object tracing for a clear, focused shot of a moving subject

Measuring 5.4 inches tall by 2.8 inches wide by 0.65 inch thick (0.79 inch at its thickest point), or 137.5mm by 70.8mm by 16.6mm (20.2mm at its thickest point), the Samsung GALAXY K zoom‘s curved back and recessed lens barrel make it far easier to slide in a pocket than the original S4 Zoom.

Initial Thoughts:

  • Love the array of covers and colours to choose from – Auto PoP Cover, Vivid Leather Cover, and Protective Cover+
  • Slim zoom camera that doubles as a smartphone without losing the “pocket portability” – very convenient!
  • The AF/AE Separation built into the camera app makes it useful for advance camera users to adjust the exposure and focus accordingly – flexibility to take great photos
  • Samsung GALAXY K zoom will be a great point-and-shoot camera cum smartphone that fits in your pocket for those who are into photography, heavy users of smartphones, and don’t want to carry 2 separate devices.
