Android powered camera getting new Smart Modes, S-Memo and compatibility with remote viewfinder app

Owners of the Verizon Galaxy Camera will be interested in this one, a software update is heading your way. The update pegged as coming 'soon' doesn't bump the Android version, but does add a variety of new features. First up is the addition of Samsung's S-Memo app, more commonly found on smartphones such as the Note 2. S-Memo doesn't appear to have the ability to take photos in-app, but allows the import of anything from the gallery. 

The camera app gets the bulk of the updates though, with an extra 4 Smart Modes being added. The new modes are for Dawn, Party Indoors, Snow and Food and takes the grand total of Smart Modes up to 19. 

Also included is the ability to make full use of Samsung's Remote Viewfinder application. Remote Viewfinder is available for a range of devices -- even the iPhone -- and lets you control timer, zoom, and a range of other options. If you manage to snag the update in the coming days, be sure to jump into the Galaxy Camera forums and let us know how you're finding it.
