While smartphone apps and mobile connectivity are often touted for lots of things, be it fitness, media viewing, navigation or a whole host of other facilities, security isn’t one that’s touched on quite as much.

While I’m afraid this review won’t feature any of the usual overclocking or synthetic benchmarks, let’s take this camera for a spin and see if it can make us feel a bit safer.
