16 Feb Florence by Night: a walk taking photos with Samsung Galaxy Note 4 Smartphone.
Posted on Feb 16, 2015
I think it’s really amazing what a modern smartphone can do in terms of image quality!
I was a happy owner of the Samsung S5 and I consider it a great smartphone, indeed maybe one of the best to take photos when we are in the presence of a good amount of light.
I suggest you to give a look at the smartphone review page where you can find other articles about smartphone photography :
One of its weaknesses, however, was the performance in a low-light situation. With Samsung Galaxy Note 4, Samsung has greatly improved the situation because it has adopted an optical image stabilizer that helps keep the shutter speeds low: in this way it avoids to use excessive high Iso, saving in this way some noise from the final photos.
As you can see from this gallery of images taken with the Samsung Galaxy Notes 4 (to be precise the “Edge” variant) the results are truly remarkable.
Zooming in on the details you may notice a slight deterioration in the overall quality of the photo, but nothing so bad for a device that you can fit easily into your pockets and bring it with you everywhere as opposed to many DSLR camera or mirrorless.
A note: the photos below have been slightly edited with VSCO Cam applying the analog film simulations.
