Samsung might be looking to take on the iPhone this time with its Note 8 by adding a better camera. We all are well aware of the fact that the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is coming with the dual camera setup, making it one of the very first Samsung phones to have a dual camera setup on the back. It is said that this is a dual 12MP camera setup with almost every feature that we want to see in the camera of a high-end device.
Today, a few images surfaced on the official Samsung site of Korea that show the camera features of any phone and a reliable source for ‘Samsung’ related leaks said that these might be the camera features of the Note 8. Again, we are not saying that these are ‘indeed’ the camera features of the Galaxy Note 8. This could just be the promotional material and we may or may not see the exact same thing on the Note 8.
ARE THESE CAMERA FEATURES OF THE SAMSUNG GALAXY NOTE 8?
The first image shows something called ‘Depth Application’ and ‘Refocus’. This is probably related to adding depth-of-field lens-blur effects to your shots. As the image shows, you can focus on a particular subject, and every other detail will be blurred out. The 3-D Depth Measurement does this.
The second image shows that the camera has a High Dynamic Range or what we commonly know as HDR. TO understand it, here is a part of the blog post about HDR on Lifehacker –
HDR, as its name implies, is a method that aims to add more “dynamic range” to photographs, where dynamic range is the ratio of light to dark in a photograph. Instead of just taking one photo, HDR uses three photos, taken at different exposures. You can then use image editing software to put those three images together and highlight the best parts of each photo.
The third image emphasises the use of the Dual Camera setup. As seen in the picture, the left shot is via the single camera whereas the dual camera shots the right one. So, with the dual camera system, the image is more bright even in low light.
The fourth image shows how the Optical Zoom works. We all know that Note 8 will be equipped with a 3X Optical Zoom and that’s what the image above shows. The Optical Zoom is much better than the Digital Zoom and the above image shows how the 3X Optical Zoom produces a much better image than the 3X Digital Zoom.
The two images above show the ‘Perspective View’ and ‘Background Effect’ feature of the Note 8’s camera. The background effect means to means to add some effects to the background and not just blurring it while the camera focuses on a particular subject.
Lastly, we have an image that shows how the dual camera system can produce seriously amazing shots even in very dark lighting conditions.
So, here are the Galaxy Note 8 Camera features as shown in the images above –
- Smart Zoom (3x optical zoom)
- Depth sensing capabilities (allows for refocusing post-processing)
- Greatly improved low-light capturing
- Improved HDR
- Perspective View (allows for moving around an object post-processing)
- Background Effects (features similar to bokeh and other blurring effects)
Well, since the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is coming with a dual camera system, we can believe that these are the camera features of the phone. What are your views? Do let us know via the comments section.
