Galaxy Note 8 4K Cinematic Video Test!

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.

Galaxy S8 Plus 4K Cinematic Test in Low-Light! [Luxor, Las Vegas]

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.

Luxor King Suite in 4K 360 VR! [Gear 360 2017 Edition]

In my recent trip to Las Vegas for the NAB 2017 convention, I brought my new Samsung Gear 360 2017 edition and here is a quick demo of what it can do at my hotel in Luxor.  Low light performance is pretty noisy as you can see so I would recommend using it in bright light or sunny conditions to get the best result.   Battery life seems to be solid as it literally lasts forever.

LG G5 Camera 4K Cinematic Test!

It’s always fun to make some 4K cinematic videos with new smartphones and today I decided to make one in Thailand since the scene is so different.  What I realized by making this video with the LG G5 is that there are some wide-angle shots you can really get creative with.
