In this test, we take the Galaxy S10 to see how it fares with the ocean waves in 4K. Ocean waves are particularly hard on video cameras as the waves literally force every pixel to move in the shot.Also, I actually took the shots in HDR10 then brought back the flat footage so you can view it on non-HDR devices. The HDR10 is really more like LOG footage that captures more dynamic range and you may be able to use it to capture brighter brights and darker darks. Of course, this does require you to use a color grading software like Davinci Resolve to bring the levels back but definitely seems to work well for capturing more dynamic range.
Here’s a 4K video test I did with my new Galaxy S10+ using all 4 cameras along with 240fps slow motion test at my local beach in Pacifica, California. All footage was handheld and 240fps was recorded in 1080P and upscaled to 4K to match the rest of the footage.
Here’s a Pixel 3 camera 4K cinematic test with my new BeastGrip MK2 that allows you to attach any Canon lenses to your smartphone. I should have a full review of the BeastGrip MK2.
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.
In this video, I take the LG V40’s 3 back cameras to the edge of the world to test out its normal, wide-angle, and telephoto cameras. It turns out the wide-angle and telephoto cameras can be VERY USEFUL in situations like mine at the edge of a cliff. Enjoy and don’t forget to hit the thumbs up/subscribe if you enjoy the video, thx! NOTE: Please watch in 1440P or 4K if possible, YouTube rendering is horrible and you may otherwise see artifacts(that I don’t see in my original video).
Here’s a quick video I put together using LG V40 camera in 4K! Now, because a lot of the shots were in super low-light, I did have to apply some noise-reduction in post using Neat Video but still, you can get some decent shots with the LG V40 in low-light using the manual video mode and noise-reduction processing.Thoughts on the LG V40 back cameras for Low Light Videography
