Need to know – Samsung Galaxy S3
Samsung Galaxy S3 – Camera
Rumours of a 12MP camera have proved to be unfounded – the Galaxy S3 will feature an 8MP rear-facing camera that shoots 1080p video – and like the HTC One X, the Galaxy S3 can capture stills while shooting a video.
A burst mode lets you shoot up to 20 frames at 3.3fps, while outside of burst mode it'll reload quickly enough to take three shots per second.
A Best Photo feature uses smile detection and blink detection as well as analysing exposure and blurring to pick out the best pic of the bunch.
Round the front, you get a 1.9MP camera that shoots 720p video – which is used for the Smart Stay face detection feature (of which more later).
