With the introduction and availability of the Samsung Pixon 12, the mobile photographer is confronted with high resolution pictures for the first time. The Samsung Pixon 12 features a special AMOLED touchscreen for a powerful color reproduction, and provides the avid user with several creative possibilities to capture everything in his surroundings and share it immediately with the mobile community. The various communication options and functionalities we will take for granted, because in this article we'd like to focus primarily on the picture functions of the Pixon 12 phone. Launching the Samsung Pixon camera mode does take some time, but once it is activated, the speed is remarkable.

The large AMOLED Display of the Samsung Pixon 12 camera phone is divided left and right into various programs. It allows you to quickly switch between picture and video mode, and provides quick access to the scene programs. Everybody will be able to shoot with optimal settings, thanks to 13 pre-programmed scenes. We are also aware of the fact that more and more camera phones now feature integrated convenient auto image editing software. Remarkable is the so-called object-tracking. By briefly touching an object on the AMOLED screen, the object is then continuously tracked and the Samsung camera phone will also continuously focus on it.

Samsung Pixon 12 review
We recognize the exact development the digital camera has undergone in the past, now being applied to mobile photography, only at a faster pace. Regarding: automation, built-in intelligent software and, indeed, the Megapixel Race. Soon, the Samsung Pixon 12 camera phone will be fully tested, but first we took it out on a daytrip to experience mobile photography. We left the resolution at 12 Megapixels, and we changed from different image ratios to various camera settings. The Samsung Pixon 12 camera phone serves the purpose extremely well, and as long as Samsung does not claim we are dealing with a 'professional' camera, the Samsung Pixon 12 is a very welcome addition to the world of digital photography.
