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 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.
LG V40 vs LG G7 vs LG V30 vs Note 9 Which Has the Loudest Sound?
In today’s test, we take the LG V40 and LG G7’s Boombox sound against the LG V30 and the Galaxy Note 9 to see which has the loudest sound. Also, use headphones or desktop speakers to listen to the difference in bass. The LG V40/G7 have VERY awesome bass when placed on top of a big box. But Note 9 has much better stereo sound if you are more acoustic type but bass heads will appreciate LG V40 or G7 more.
Here’s an underwater snorkeling test with the LG G6. Yes IP68 rating is good enough to snorkel with it in sea salt water, just keep your phone no more than 5 feet underwater and you should be fine. Also rinse your phone off with fresh water after as salt left on the phone can make your seals degrade if you leave it. This isn’t my first time snorkeling with a waterproof phone, I used Galaxy S5 a few years back in Thailand, the phone still works even years later and still waterproof, you can check it out here.
In this 4K cinematic camera test, I took the Pixel 2 on a trip to the beach with my daughter Peony to see how well it worked during sunset hours. To my surprise, the Pixel 2 has an “amazing” stabilization using its OIS/EIS combo. Now, the original Pixel also had OIS/EIS combo but wasn’t as good as the Pixel 2. With better processor and better electronic stabilization algorithms, the Pixel 2 behaves like it is on a gimbal during good lighting. Now, I did find stability does not work as well in low light and I assume this is due to the fact EIS(Electronic Image Stabilization) works by cropping out the mistakes.
In this low-light camera comparison, we take up the Google Pixel 2 vs. Galaxy Note 8 vs LG V30 in challenging low-light situations where a lot bright background lights are involved. To conduct this test, all phones were set to 100% “auto” mode.
In this quick test, we compare the brightness of LG V30(pre-production) vs. Galaxy Note 8 in indoors and outdoors.
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 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.
