Generally, Nikon has high-powered capacity for high-speed movements during photo capture and in movies as well. When it comes to lighting, the ISO Boost of 12,800 provides users balance during low-light condition without degrading the brightness or contrast of images captured. Nikon D3200 also has a high MP compared to the Samsung Galaxy Camera which definitely works well with its other lens features for that Nikon moment.

On the other hand, the Samsung Galaxy Camera has the Super Clear LCD touchscreen protected by the Corning Gorilla Glass against scratches and impact damage when scanning files. Another thing which makes this one different is the Android OS. Using that OS allows the user access to social sites and applications by using Wi-Fi and direct connection to Google Play.

Both are powerful on their own ways. Nikon D3200 is for consumers who want to get in touch with their inner photographer instinct and amateurs who want to start this hobby or maybe as a new career since this digital camera gives users the best captured moments and candid scenes imaginable.

In contrast, the Samsung Galaxy Camera is best for tech fanatics because this device will turn any captured photos or videos into a masterpiece in the world wide web. The Android capability allows users to download applications for image editing and upload it right away to blog sites or social networks. It defines an impeccable versatility right inside the digital camera, not anymore exclusive to the smartphone.
