Can you make a 4K cinematic video w/ the Samsung Galaxy S9+ using its new 4K 60fps video recording? In my latest outing to the golf driving range, we find out if the Galaxy S9+ can stand up to some simple panning shots and see if it can add to your next 4K cinematic video by slowing down 60fps to 24 or 30fps.The result? Is 4K 60fps useful?
Galaxy S9 Plus camera has F1.5 which probably is best shown by doing a video comparison. In this video comparison, we take up the Galaxy S9 Plus again Pixel 2 XL and see which one does better in low-light and near darkness. Of course, the results are definitely impressive as the S9 Plus kills Pixel 2 XL in terms of clarity, level of noise, and exposure. Galaxy smartphones have always had one of the best(if not the best) performance when it comes to the video category and the Galaxy S9/S9+ has definitely stepped up another level with its F1.5 over last year’s F1.7. Now, I am actually not sure how much of improvement that is so we will do another test on that soon. Stay tuned!
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.
About 20 years ago, I stumbled onto Pacifica, California, which is a small coastal city about 10 miles south of San Francisco. Ever since then, I’ve really enjoyed playing golf and even fishing at the Pacifica Pier for crabs. I would drive 45 minutes just to check out Pacifica every weekend. Well, 6 years ago, I ended up buying my ocean-view dream house here and Pacifica is one of the best cities to live in the world in my opinion.
In this test, we compare the Pixel vs. Galaxy S7 Edge 4K video camera in low-light and see which one has less noise in different shades of low-light.
In our part 1 of Galaxy S7 Edge vs. LG G5 camera comparison, Galaxy S7 Edge proved to do much better in low light with photos while LG G5 did provide an extra wide-angle lens. In this camera comparison, we took up the Galaxy S7 Edge vs. LG G5 testing out their video recording abilities.
Here’s Galaxy S7 & S7 Edge 4K cinematic video test, this was shot at the Fine Palace of Arts in San Francisco. I used both Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge to record this video but both S7 and S7 Edge has identical cameras. (This whole video was recorded using the S7 & S7 Edge!)
Here’s AMAZING 4K video footage with my Phantom drone and Nexus 5X Camera!
I used Adobe Premiere warp stabilizer to stabilize some of the shots since Nexus 5X has no OIS or stabilization of any sort. But the raw version doesn’t look bad either, you can see the non-stabilized version here.
Here’s me doing video camera test of LG V10. I used LG V10 for the entire video, mostly the 4K back camera and the front 120-degree front camera. I wanted to give you a demo of real life results and also results when using stabilizers like a tripod or camera sliders.
