Honestly I haven't seen such specs in any other digital camera especially with compact size like the Galaxy GC100.

And here is unboxing video and short video review of the Samsung Galaxy GC100 EK-GC100ZKABTU camera:

We can't say that the Samsung Galaxy GC100 EK-GC100ZKABTU is an expensive camera, especially with all this technology under the hood. With a price tag of around 500 Euro (£400 in UK) it is not cheap as well. Considering there is not much competition in this segment it is not a surprise that the Galaxy GC100 is one of the current best sellers in the premium compact digital camera segment.

Many users like myself wouldn't bother spending so much money on non-DSLR camera and will keep on using what they currently have in hand (Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-HX9V in my case) because still many of us are not convinced we need Android OS for our compact digital cameras.
