Our colleagues over at LetsGoMobile have reviewed the 5 Megapixel Samsung G600 camera phone. According to LetsGoMobile: “Samsung have been active on the mobile phone market for quite some years now and already have several successes on their name. Nowadays, the mobiles get more and more extensive. In the beginning of this year the Nokia N95 was introduced; a mobile phone with a 5 Megapixel camera. Sony Ericsson followed with the K850i and now Samsung too with the G600. The Samsung G600 is a so-called slider mobile with extensive features, including a 5 Megapixel digital camera.” To make use the 5 Megapixel autofocus digital camera you need to open the G600 mobile phone.

LetsGoMobile says: “To make use the 5 Megapixel autofocus digital camera you need to open the slider phone. The camera can be activated by means of the camera button on the side of the G600 or through the menu. After activating the camera, it takes a little while before the camera is actually ready. On the back side you will find the small built-in flash right next to the lens. Despite its size, it is a relatively powerful flash. The quality of the camera is truly starting to become similar to a normal digital compact camera.”

Just like we have seen many times before, Samsung pays a lot of attention to the design of the mobile phone, which is also the case with the Samsung G600. A combination of tight outlines and round forms make sure the camera looks good, but not overly prominent. Even a business man will fall for the design of the Samsung G600. The handset comes in dark grey with three silver colored buttons on the front side. Directly beneath the screen we see a raised edge to slide the mobile open, this edge could have been made a bit higher, because now your finger will slip past it at times.

LetsGoMobile concludes: “The Samsung G600 is a mobile phone that is true to its promises. Of course, there are a few minor points for improvement. I would have liked to see the camera perform better in low light conditions. It also would have been better if the G600 does not have to be opened before you can use the camera. The monitor is good in general, but the Samsung G600 does have difficulty with the reproduction of contrast-rich images. I must say, I have seen better results on other mobiles with the same kind of screen. The operation is outstanding, the menu works comfortably and all menu functions can be found easily.” Read the full review of the Samsung G600 over at LetsGoMobile!

The PMA show, or Photo Marketing Association, continues its yearly tradition of maintaining a network of photo imaging as well as the experience and know-how of the industry. The PMA represents 20,000 members from over 100 countries, who are all active within the imaging industry. As a reflection of the changes in the market, the PMA organization has also changed and has become more diverse. Nowadays, the member group consists of representatives coming from photo retail, manufacturers, commercial photo labs, professional sports and news photography, in addition to small album print suppliers and photo processing centers. The PMA 2012 Trade show focuses on an industry which is heavily affected by the unstable situation of the global financial economy. However, whether the latter will also stand in the way of the innovation and product introductions, remains to be revealed by the PMA International Convention & Trade Show in Anaheim Convention Center (California, US).
