You love a good selfie. We do too. Samsung’s S7 Edge camera is pretty cool.
12MP Rear Camera
The new 12-megapixel camera has a brighter F1.7 lens. This means that the lens allows more light into the camera, producing brighter photos with more clarity and definition.
The camera has Dual Pixels, a feature that lets your camera focus quicker than you would with your own eyes, giving you fast and seamless auto-focus.
Saving in RAW
For all of the professional photographers out there, this one’s a biggie. Pro Mode means you can save a photo as a RAW file. A RAW file has 10x more data than a JPEG file, which gives you more control in the editing process.
The model comes with a built-in LED flash for the rear camera. However, there is no flash for the front-facing camera.
Low Light Performance
Samsung has made big improvements to photos taken in low light. You now get a F1.7 lens and larger 1.4µm pixels making for brighter, clearer photos.
Hyperlapse, which is similar to time lapse, lets you record a video in a sped-up fashion. You can change the speed of hyperlapse too, either increasing or decreasing the frames per second.
The 8 Plus also has optical zoom which works the same way as a zoom lens on a traditional camera. Optical zoom does a better job than digital zoom at taking photos from far away or in dull lighting as it does not degrade image quality when used.
Spotlight mode lets you decide on which facial features you’d like to focus on.
Record video up to 4K. The main benefit of 4K video is you get much smoother, sharper and clearer content that’s just beautiful to look at. The Samsung S7 Edge’s video also gives you extra features like time lapse which condenses an entire day into a few seconds, slow motion to catch every detail of that action shot and optical image stabilisation that removes that “shaky hands” look.
