It’s not an overstatement to say that the smartphone has changed the way we communicate and consume information. But, perhaps just as significantly, the smartphone has also changed the way we capture photos. Spearheaded by flagship devices like Samsung’s very own Galaxy S line, this small rectangle we carry around with us everywhere has revolutionised the way people take pictures and freeze moments.
With the Galaxy S10, Samsung’s looking to push that revolution a little further by giving you the convenience of a multi-camera pro-level camera setup in the svelte body of a smartphone.
You see, Samsung’s Galaxy S10 comes with the company’s most sophisticated camera setup to date. While previous Galaxy S phones introduced complex mechanics like the dual-aperture main camera, Samsung’s building on top of that by adding even more versatility with a brand new camera.
That’s right, the Galaxy S10 now comes with a triple camera setup at the back instead of a single or dual camera setup. For regular wide-angled shots, you’ll be using the advanced dual-aperture 12MP wide-angle camera. This camera also allows you to switch between f/1.5 (which is wide open and lets in lots of light for dark scenes) and f/2.4 (produces sharper images for bright scenes) so you’re never left out no matter the scene.
Need a little more reach? At the touch of a button, you can switch to the 12MP telephoto camera that’ll give you 2X optical zoom so you can get closer to your subjects. Want to get more of the scene into your shot? Now, it’s time to engage the Galaxy S10’s new 16MP ultra-wide angled camera. This has an ultra-wide lens that gives you a 123-degree field of view so you can get epic shots of landscapes and architecture like never before with a smartphone.
Even if you think you’re not a capable photographer, you can still get excellent photos with the Galaxy S10. This is thanks to the intelligent features that Samsung has built into the S10 — features like Scene Optimiser and Artistic Live Focus.
With Scene Optimiser, the phone is capable of recognising 30 different scenes, and automatically adjusts your camera’s settings to get the best photo of the scene. All you need to do is point your S10 and press the shutter — the device will take care of everything else for you. The S10 will even help you with framing and making sure your phone is lined up correctly via a useful circle in the middle of the screen — just lines it up and bam, you’re good to go.
On the other hand, Artistic Live Focus lets you take amazing portrait photos with stunning bokeh super easily, then add cool new bokeh effects like spin, zoom or even colour point where the phone isolates your subject from the background through selective colour. The best part? All of this can be tweaked even AFTER you’ve taken the photo.
The Galaxy S10 also has impressive video recording capabilities. It’s the first phone in the world to be able to record HDR 10+ footage with Dynamic Tone Mapping Technology using the rear camera. Smoothen those shaky handheld shots with the Galaxy S10’s new Super Steady video stabilisation technology when recording in Full HD — it’s 3X stronger than conventional VDIS tech so you can get absolutely buttery footage even with just your phone.
Prefer taking selfies? Well, the Galaxy S10’s also equipped with an upgraded 10MP selfie camera with Dual Pixel Autofocus and the ability to record 4K UHD video. 4K video with a front camera! That’s awesome.
What’s more, Samsung’s also worked closely with the folks over at Instagram to produce a dedicated Instagram Mode in the S10’s camera app. This will help you get the best possible footage for your Instagram Stories, and automatically share footage from either camera on the S10 at any focal length!
The age where you have to lug around heavy camera equipment with you everywhere you go just so you can capture precious moments is over. Get your hands on a Galaxy S10 or S10+ today and you’ll immediately get access to one of the best smartphone cameras in the world — that also happens to be one of the best smartphones in the world. Don’t settle for less anymore, head on over to Samsung’s Online Store and pick up your brand new no-compromise flagship today.
