Samsung’s S8 Plus 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.
8MP Selfie Camera
The front-facing camera has an 8-megapixel camera with an aperture of F1.8.
Smart Auto Focus
The selfie camera makes use of Smart Auto Focus which detects the faces in the selfie and puts them into focus.
The S8 Plus camera has Dual Pixels, a feature that lets your camera focus quicker than you would with your own eyes, giving you fast and seamless autofocus.
The S8 Plus’ camera gives you more control over your photos. You can switch to Pro Mode which lets you alter ISO, shutter speed, exposure value, colour tone, manual focus and white balance.
Saving in RAW
For all of the professional photographers out there, this one’s a biggie. The Samsung S8 Plus’ 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 Samsung’s S8 Plus also has a unique Food Mode tool which makes your Insta-worthy lunch pics look that much yummier.
Hyperlapse, which is similar to time-lapse, lets you record a video in a sped-up fashion. You can change the speed of hyper-lapse too, either increasing or decreasing the frames per second.
The S8 Plus also has an 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.
Swipe From the Left, Swipe From the Right
The S8 Plus’ camera makes it easy for you to access its features. If you swipe from the left, you can access shooting modes. If you swipe from the right, get your filters, stickers, and stamps.
The Samsung S8 Plus can 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 S8 Plus’ 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.
