Samsung's Android-powered Galaxy Camera 2 ships next month for $450

Looking to pick up Samsung's much-improved Galaxy Camera 2? The 16-megapixel Android-powered shooter can be yours next month for $450. The device includes Jelly Bean under the hood, and unlike what we experienced with the original cam, this updated version felt quite snappy during our CES demo. There's a 4.8-inch 720p display, WiFi connectivity (this model doesn't support 3G/4G) and a boosted 2,000 mAh battery. The lens doesn't appear to be improved, however, with a 21x zoom and an f/2.8-5.9 maximum aperture range. Samsung is also announcing pricing and availability for the NX30, which ships today for a whopping $1,000 with an 18-55mm kit lens. We think the company would benefit from a more aggressive MSRP there, given the competition in the mirrorless camera space, but if you aren't turned off by the price, it does appear to be a solid option.
