The news will certainly be welcomed by camera mavens. Samsung Galaxy Camera price has been slashed by Rs 3,880 in India

There are not many takers for Samsung’s Galaxy S Camera in India. The high pricing of the smart-camera has kept most of the people wishing to go for this very beautiful and endowed camera away from it. But Samsung seems to be on a price slashing spree right now. It recently cut the price of its top selling handsets including Galaxy S3 and its top selling phablet Galaxy Note 2. Both the handsets are still being sold in the Indian market in large numbers and the price cut is certainly going to attract more buyers to it.

With the latest price cut of its Android camera, Samsung is aiming at accelerating the demand for this beautiful camera that has been praised for its handy features. The South Korean tech giant’s Indian arm has decided to slash the Galaxy S camera price from Rs 29,950 to Rs Rs 26,520, a clear reduction of Rs 3,880. Though it is yet to be seen if the price cut will ignite the demand for the camera or not, but the demand is certainly going to be better than before.

The South Korean tech giant’s digital camera features a 17MP BSI CMOS sensor with a superb 21x optical and digital zooming capability. It offers a focal length of 4.1mm to 86.1mm and it shows off an f2.8 aperture. Using the camera, you can capture stills at ISO 100 to 3200. You can record movies in 1080p@30fps at the same time.

Yes, you can run Dropbox for live cloud storage, a Photo Wizard for editing images, social media sites like Facebook and others for sharing images right away. Besides its sports a 4.8-inch HD Super Clear LCD screen for both viewing images and using apps and features. The screen does have an identical interface of an Android handset. For powering up, the camera packs a strong 1,650mAh battery that can offer up to 280 hours of 3G standby.
