If you happened to be one of the less than 13 people who shelled out $550 to get Verizon's variant of the Galaxy Camera, then a nice update is heading your way. It appears to bring some pretty useful new features, like S Memo, a new Help App, four new Smart Modes, and a nifty remote view finder.


So far as the new Smart Modes are concerned, the update brings scenes for dawn, indoor parties, snow, and food to the device, for a total of 19. In addition to those, you can now access the GCam's view finder via your Galaxy S Series, Tab Series, or iPhone with the companion app, which is pretty rad. The Note Series is noticeably absent from that list, but I have a hard time imagining the feature is lacking support for Note devices – but the only way to confirm for sure is to give it an install and check it out.

    Now, if VZW includes this camera in any Payment Plan they introduce, it will be a winner for me! My wife could enjoy this for Mother's day.
