Photography experts will tell you that megapixels aren’t everything. Unless you’re making large photos, the most you really need is 5.
Well, get ready to get that in a phone.
The Samsung SGH-G800 is the “world’s first” 5 megapixel camera phone WITH 3x optical zoom. Technically, the Nokia N95 was first but Samsung counters with “we have the first one with opitcal zoom.” By comparison, the iPhone has a 2.0 megapixel camera.
A sleek device, the G800 looks like a streamlined digital camera on one side and a fashionable mobile phone on the other side. The handset is equipped with advanced camera technology like face detection, and also provides a very easy tool for sharing images and videos.
Plus, the Samsung G800 offers professional video editing functions so that you can easily cut, paste, and edit your own films, and a mobile blogging feature to upload to yourfavorite User Created Content sites very easily. Oh, and it’s a phone too.
Samsung unveiled the device at CES this year, so it’s one of those cool things “coming soon,” it’s not quite ready for prime time – yet.
