Samsung Galaxy Camera (EK-GC100) Review
Samsung's latest experiment is the first camera to support both Android and 4G mobile broadband.
While this is only true of the sides and corners of the frame, chromatic aberration produced by the Galaxy Camera's lens can be very severe. In some zones, almost three pixels of a high contrast edge may be occupied by orange or blue fringing, and this is after any software correction performed before the final JPEG is output to memory.
To avoid chromatic aberration with the Galaxy Camera, keep your most important subjects centered, and avoid shooting at medium focal lengths.
Radial distortion is somewhat pronounced at all focal lengths. 0.88% barrel distortion is observable at the wide angle, and this swaps over to 1.15% and 0.93% pincushion distortion at medium and telephoto focal lengths respectively. The results are pretty consistent with the performance of the Samsung WB850F, strengthening our theory of borrowed hardware.
