Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom
The Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom is the first smartphone to offer 10x optical zoom, making it easy to take great shots, either from a distance, or get the perfectly famed image up close. Including the best of a high performance smartphone and camera in one, it delivers the best of both worlds.
The essential tech specs.
The 2,330mAh battery of the Zoom means it'll last for up to 570 hours on standby and give you 13 hours of talk time. Powered by Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, and with a 1.5GHz dual core processor, it has some of the most advanced workings to handle any task. The screen comes in at 4.3", with a resolution of 540x960, giving a sharpness of 256 pixels per inch (PPI). The 16MP camera is one of the most advanced in the smartphone world, and with 8GB of storage, expandable to 64GB with a microSD card (sold separately), there's plenty of space for photos.
Half smartphone, half camera.
When you look at the Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom from the front, it has all the elegance and style of an S4 Mini. The 4.3" qHD AMOLED screen is perfect for HD content, and the smooth edges fit right into your hand. Flip it over and you have one of the most powerful cameras ever merged with a smartphone. The 16MP lens is surrounding by ergonomic design, ensuring you can use the camera comfortably, but still upload photos to Facebook, send emails, and even watch a movie.
Capture the best images
When it comes to high quality photography, bigger isn't always better. The compact Galaxy S4 Zoom's best-in-class 10x optical zoom and advanced16MP BSI CMOS Sensor lets you capture beautiful images from far away or up close and personal, in all light conditions, without having to carry heavy camera gear around with you. Even better, with advanced Optical Image Stabiliser (OIS), the camera is kept perfectly still even when you're not, reducing blur and stabilising the image while zoomed in for high-quality photos and video.
Zoom Ring – a new way to control your camera.
The Zoom Ring is a simple and intuitive way to access the Galaxy S4 Zoom's key features. When you're in the middle of a phone call and want to share something, a quick twist of the Zoom Ring will activate the In-Call Photo Share feature, letting you capture and send an image directly via MMS to whoever you're talking to. The Zoom Ring also revolutionises conventional camera zoom controls. Optical zoom control replaces traditional dials and buttons with smooth, easy-to-operate digital controls. Professional-quality accuracy and unprecedented ease of use are just a twist away, making it easy to compose a scene and capture wide-angle shots or tight close-ups.
Advanced camera features with Smart Mode.
Smart Mode is a feature that lets you stop worrying about settings and start taking professional-quality artistic shots straight away. All you need to do is choose from a series of pre-set modes and the camera will automatically adjust. Drama Shot lets you merge multiple shots of moving objects into a single image to create quality action images, while Action Freeze changes settings in an instant letting you capture high-speed action blur-free. If you don't know which Smart Mode to use, the Smart Mode Suggest feature can assess the scene for you, identifying factors such as light levels, focal length, or face detection, and tell you which mode is best, ensuring you always get the best shot.
