The device has been available in the U.S. via AT&T since last week.
Galaxy Cameras offer Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, a 4.8-inch HD Super Clear LCD panel, a 1.4GHz quad-core processor and 16MP BSI CMOS sensor with 21x optical zoom. There is an HSPA+ chip for 3G, as well as the standard Wi-Fi.
Because the camera ships with Android, users have access to all 650,000 apps in the Google Play Store, as well.
Additionally, the Galaxy Camera "includes powerful manual controls with its Expert Mode, which allows for manual setting of shutter speed, aperture, and ISO. Smart Mode gives amateurs the tools of the pros, with Rich Tone HDR mode, Light Trace for 'light painting' photos and features like Best Face and Best Photo, which help users pick the best shot."
"The GALAXY Camera marks the next stage of evolution in the history of the camera and we are extremely excited to make it available to Canadian customers today," said Paul Brannen, Vice President, Enterprise Business Solutions at Samsung Canada. "Combining world class mobile and digital imaging technologies, The GALAXY Camera gives users the total freedom to take vivid, high quality pictures and videos and share them instantly through their favorite social networking sites or with family and friends without the restrictions of a conventional camera."
