there are plenty of other cameras available that tag images using just GPS without needing 3G or wi-fi don't see why the Samsung should be any different

Not so sure about the galaxy camera, but I'm seriously mulling over acquiring a Galaxy S4 Zoom on the basis that I carry my phone around all of the time, and often forget to carry a compact camera.

Using the old adage that the camera you with you is the best camera you have, it fits the bill superbly. If anyone on here has one could you let me know please !

I've just acquired the S4 but haven't had more than a cursory play with the camera so far.

The manual makes it look as if it has a fair bit of flexibility and our daughter in law gets good results with her S3 so it should be OK

(I still can't get my head around trying to use the phone to take pictures though but that is more about me than the phone I suspect Smile )

The screen is excellent though, which was one reason for the upgrade when my old contract ran out, I use it primarily as a point of sale device, showing pics and taking orders

My wife got a free Samsung Galaxy Camera with her new phone last year and we've had it on two holidays and nights out, Christmas etc - it really is a very good camera indeed.

It's a bit bulky (my daughter has the Lumix TZ40 which would make an excellent travel camera as its so small) and there are a few quirks that we've not been able to sort out, but other than that I would highly recommend it. Most reviews we've seen gives it 4/5 or better and I was shocked that she got it free with her phone as it was for sale in Jessops for 329 when she got it!

We don't use it for Geo-tagging so can't comment on how good this would be, sorry.

Apparently it has a Geo-Magnetic sensor fitted, so geo-tagging should be possible.

Note that it also has Google maps option so you must be able to shoot and map at the same time??
