Here’s a quick Galaxy Note 9 4K cinematic camera test! It seems like the Galaxy Note 9 like to overexpose but other than that, seems like pretty good cameras especially the telephoto camera seems sharper and better images than the LG V40. As far as exposure, I feel like the LG V40 does a TON better in auto mode. Also, the controls for manual mode(Pro mode) on the Galaxy Note 9 is hard to use as the dials are a bit finicky. At times, I have to really try to register my fingers correctly or the dials just simply don’t work and another reason I just don’t use manual controls on the Galaxy Note 9. I used auto mostly which works quite fine but like I said, I had to manually adjust the exposure down to get the proper exposure.
One some of the shots in the beginning, I didn’t adjust the exposure so the shots came out way overexposed and I had to cut out the highlights when editing. This is definitely a different behavior than previous Galaxy phones like the Galaxy S9, Note 8, and S8. Maybe it can be fixed in a software update but overall, the images came out pretty good, I am amazed especially at the close-up shots of my ice axe, you can certainly use the Galaxy Note 9 or any of the latest flagship phones like LG V40 for professional product videos if you have the correct tools. See how I made this video here and how you can make professional videos with a smartphone.
