Picking out a mid- to high-end camera is a bit like picking a phone. Once you’ve made your decision and plunked down the large investment, you’ve got a lot of work ahead of you in order to make it your own. A good camera can be accessorized and tailored to your needs, and the Galaxy NX is no exception. While many people prefer a high end “dumb camera,” yours truly is content with nothing less than Android Power.. . . READ ON »

Samsung was at this year’s CES in a BIG way! They have advertisements on just about any of the many shuttle buses circling the Las Vegas Convention Center, they had ads all over the Convention Center itself, and that got the location into trouble, as the ads announced their releases before the actual press event. At the press event, Samsung announced a new Samsung Note Pro 12.2, three new Galaxy Tab Pros—coming in the sizes of 8.4, 10.1, and 12.2 inches—and the Samsung Galaxy Camera 2.
XDA Developer TV Producer Jordan was on site and got a chance to get his hands on the Note PRO 12.2, the Galaxy Tab PRO trio, and the Galaxy Camera 2. Jordan sat down and talked with the folks at Samsung. In this video, h. . . READ ON »

Samsung seems to be the only company right now that is producing and marketing a smart camera actually worth considering. Running Android Jelly Bean with TouchWiz and packing 16 MP, the Galaxy Camera is essentially an Android device with a really good camera. So why not port the camera, or at least the camera app, to the company’s latest flagship, the Galaxy S 4?
Well this is exactly what XDA Senior Member LastStandingDroid has done. Compatible with GS4s running the Google Edition firmware, LastStandingDroid has managed to get the core functions of the Galaxy Camera up and running, as well as a couple other features, such as:
- Taking photos and videos
- Beauty Face
- Slow an

Recently, XDA Elite Recognized Developer AdamOutler got a hold of a Samsung Galaxy Camera. First thing he did was unbox it, then he tore it apart, and finally he rooted it. For your normal user that is plenty, but AdamOutler wanted more than an Android Camera.
In this video, AdamOutler talks about some of the hacks that are working on the Samsung Galaxy Camera. He talks about installing a VNC Server on the Galaxy Camera and using a tablet as a remote viewfinder and controller for the camera. He then talks about hooking up an external microphone. Finally, he talks about the open Galaxy Bootloader and eMMC. So sit back, relax and check out this video.. . . READ ON »

Android devices support a lot of external devices. From Bluetooth speakers to external hard drives, there really isn’t much you can’t hook up to an Android device anymore. However, one thing that users may have trouble with is an external microphone.
XDA Elite Recognized Developers AdamOutler and Rebellos are at it again. This time with a hardware mod that will allow better external mic support on most Samsung Galaxy devices. This includes the Galaxy Note II and the Galaxy Camera. AdamOutler explains the mod in more detail:

It is not very often that we throw around the words “game changer.” There have been a great deal of impressive developments here at XDA over the years. However, game changers are indeed a rarity. There have been a couple of recent breakthroughs on the Samsung Galaxy S III, Samsung Galaxy Camera, and other Samsung Exynos-based devices.
XDA Elite Recognized Developers adamoutler and Rebellos have figured out how to boot from the SD card. We’re not talking chroot style dual booting, either. We’re talking full boot with an open source bootloader. In addition, they also have Fastboot working on the Galaxy Camera. As adamoutler explains:

The Samsung Galaxy Camera has been a developer daydream since its release. In just a short time, we’ve brought you news of root, UnBrickable SD mod, and an open source bootloader for the device. There are plenty of others too. Now, there is a way to access hidden menus in the Galaxy Camera.
XDA Elite Recognized Developer and TV Producer Adam Outler has released a method that allows Galaxy Camera owners to access hidden menus. While some would assume that the menus aren’t that important, there is some utility to be found inside. As Adam explains, these hidden menus can help get to things like Factory Mode where bricked users can un-brick their devices. There are some menus that don’t really matt. . . READ ON »

When you buy a product, you count on being the one in control so you can do whatever you want to: dress it up, throw it on the ground, or hang it from the ceiling. Mobile carriers, and some manufacturers for that matter, have a very different idea. Since you bought the device at a discount (read: subsidy) they feel they own the device, at least until the contract term is up—and they do have a point. Often, the manufacturer and mobile carrier have come to an agreement that a device must have its bootloader locked during the life of a contract, or until a specified date in time. Only then, can the consumer be allowed to unlock their bootloader via means given to them by the manufacturer. All would seem lost, if it were. . . READ ON »

A couple of weeks ago, we brought you a lot of Galaxy Camera news. If you’re a watcher and not a reader, XDA Elite Recognized Developer Adam Outler talked about pretty much all of it in his popular unboxing videos. In a very short time, the Samsung Galaxy Camera got root, official Heimdall support, and all kinds of other great mods and hacks. One thing that Adam was working on was making UnBrickable Mod compatible with the Galaxy Camera. That is now a reality.
After some tinkering and hard bricking, Adam now has UnBrickable SD successfully working on the Galaxy Camera. This is huge news if you own a Galaxy Camera because, well, your device is no longer brickable. And we’re talking about hard bricks too. T. . . READ ON »
