In this EXTREME camera stability test, we take the all-new Samsung Galaxy Note 8 vs. LG V30(pre-production unit) on my Suzuki GSX-R600 motorcycle to find out which one can handle motorcycle shakes better. Both were shot in 4K in auto mode.
In this video, I take the Galaxy Note 8 into the nature in my backyard and also take my daughters to Ocean Beach in San Francisco. All shots were in auto-mode hand-held except for the timelapses where I used a tripod. (Timelapses were simply sped-up footage of the video.) Comparing to the older Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus, the added 2X zoom camera proved to be very useful in situations where zoom was needed without losing quality. I did make use of the manual mode in certain shots where manual focus was needed plus I didn’t want the ISO or shutter speed to flicker my shots. Overall, the Galaxy Note 8 does have very good 4K video camera that you can use for family videos or even professional-quality videos. Although still one of the best, I prefer the new LG V30 for videos which I feel have a ton better room for cinematic colors along with LOG mode and better manual mode.
In this video, I take the LG V30 in cine video mode & the Mavic Pro 4K for a quick trip around Mussel Rock, Daly City, California where I live. All shots were done with LG V30 except for drone shots that were done with Mavic Pro. *Note – Please watch in 1440P or 4K as YouTube rendering is horrible.
In this video I show you how to install the latest and greatest Android 8.0 Oreo on your Google Pixel, Pixel XL, Nexus 6P, or 5X. Google will push out Android 8.0 Oreo update via OTA(over-the-air) eventually but if you are too impatient to wait or you are on a rooted phone with custom ROM, you can manually install it using Google factory images.
In this comparison test of LG V30 vs. Galaxy Note 8, I wanted to test the difference between V30 Cine Video vs. Note 8. For this test, I did a simple grade trying to match V30’s cine video mode.
LG V30 is finally HERE! I got to play with it for almost a week and here’s my first impressions!
I have been using both the Galaxy S8 & S8 Plus as daily driver for many weeks now and I think it’s a good time to do a review on these latest Samsung smartphones.
Here’s a quick demo of Galaxy S8 hyperlapse/timelapse camera mode. It defaults to 1080P so I upscaled it to 1440P since YouTube compression is horrible, try to watch in 1440P.
After pre-ordering from a bunch of different eBay sellers and trying to get a hold of blue color, I ended up ordering a Maple Gold dual SIM model SM-G950FD as blue models were either not available or way overpriced. The main reason I got this over the U.S. models is because the bootloader is unlocked on international models and you can easily root the phone.
In my recent trip to Las Vegas, I took a few clips of the Luxor hotel (where I was staying) and put together a quick 4K cinematic test. The results weren’t too shabby. The lighting at Luxor hotel is terrible but it was a great test to do a low-light test. Most of my clips actually have noise in the original clips as there was simply not enough lights in the pyramid. I HAD to use some type of noise reduction program and fortunately I had Neat Video plugin for Adobe Premiere which basically gets rid of noise.
In this LG G6 unboxing, we unbox a retail Sprint unit and also talk about spies from Samsung and LG.
In this tutorial, we show you stuff you absolutely MUST DO after buying the Samsung Galaxy S8 or S8 Plus to take full advantage of its new features.
Here’s me unboxing the Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus, this is the T-Mobile retail unit I pre-ordered! I do have an international Galaxy S8 also on the way later this week.
