Samsung Galaxy S5 photo samples show off impressive camera quality


Last updated: March 6th, 2014 at 14:31 UTC+01:00

One of the most noteworthy features of the Galaxy S5 is the 16-megapixel camera, which succeeds the 13-megapixel sensor Samsung used on both its 2013 flagships. The Galaxy S4 and Galaxy Note 3 offered stunning detail and image quality with their 13MP cameras, so we were naturally expecting the 16MP sensor on the S5 to be even better – the folks over at Mobile-review have gotten hold of a few camera samples of the Galaxy S5, and they indicate that Samsung has indeed outdone what they’d achieved on their smartphone cameras till now.

The samples offer a look at many of the different camera modes on the Galaxy S5, including Selective Focus (allows to focus on a particular part of the image, both during and after taking a picture), Panning Shot (takes a series of shots and mixes them together, while keeping the main subject in focus in the center), Drama Shot (captures multiple images of a moving object and merges them to show different positions of that object in the same photo), and HDR+, which is an improved version of standard HDR and looks to have been put to good use on the Galaxy S5. As one would expect from a 16-megapixel camera, the detail captured is rather high, and the amount of digital noise is pretty much non-existent.

Of course, since these are samples offered by the manufacturer, they can’t be taken as the final verdict on the camera’s real-life performance, but again, given the impressive quality Samsung managed to eke out from the standard 13-megapixel sensor on the S4 and Note 3, we can expect actual camera quality on the Galaxy S5 to be stunning. Hopefully, low-light performance is commendable as well, though the lack of hardware optical image stabilization means it might not be as good as that of the competition.
