If you’re thinking about a new shooter for yourself or as a gift this holiday season, then the Samsung Galaxy Camera might be a good choice if you want a digital camera with a twist. We’ve collected a number of visual reviews for you to look over because it’s clear to see that this camera will not only take decent photos, but also add a great social element as well.

In the first video below you can see that the Samsung Galaxy Camera EK-GC100 looks like many other compact cameras on the market, but it’s not until the device is picked up switched on and flipped over that you know that it is going to be a little different. We do like that this Samsung Galaxy Camera review does not want to waste your time if you are a serious photographer, as you are advised to do research on other reviews that offer more in-depth knowledge on features that are aimed at adjusting different elements of the settings.

Thankfully the second video review does take a closer look, but starts off with the basics, so being able to play games like Angry Birds, use Facebook, Twitter and also Instagram. There are not many cameras on the market that allow you to do this, this is because what we have here is a thick Android smartphone, but without the ability to make calls. We love how this review shows the camera up against some rival devices and points out just how heavy it is compared to them.

The third review is more enjoyable to watch because the guy is so excited, unlike in the previous review where it was right down to business. We do love how this guy is comparing his Samsung Galaxy Camera to a Galaxy Nexus and also a Canon Rebel T2i, which we have to say is a pretty clever thing to do, but we feel as though it will not be a fair fight. Then again it does show how the new Samsung camera can do what it takes two devices to do.

There are another 2 videos for you to view below, but these just give you a quick rundown of the specs, which are a 16-megapixel lens and 21x optical zoom. There’s also Corning Gorilla Glass 2, which we have come to expect on Galaxy devices, but it’s the addition of Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and how it is able to connect to social media services that has us most interested in this camera. So will this camera be the one for you?
