Galaxy S5 4K video shooting mode detailed in new video


Last updated: March 5th, 2014 at 04:59 UTC+02:00

The Galaxy S5 isn’t going to be commercially available for another month, but it looks like a user from Mexico has managed to get a hold of the device ahead of time. He then proceeded to shoot a video in 4K (3840 x 2160) to demonstrate the imaging potential of the device. You can see at the beginning of the video that the device is a Galaxy S5 thanks to its larger flash unit. The 4-minute video shows how much faster the Galaxy S5 focuses after zooming in or during motion. 4K recording is set to be the standard in high-end devices this year, and while the image quality when shooting in 4K looks stunning, it does take up a lot of space. A 1-minute 4K video shot at 30 fps uses almost 1 GB of space. No wonder the Galaxy S5 features a microSD card slot that can accommodate a 128 GB SD card. If you intend to shoot in 4K, you’re going to need it.

Here’s the 4K video shot using the Galaxy S5 in its entirety (be sure to select the 2160p option):
