The Samsung Galaxy S3′s camera – a closer look [video]
While some might have been disappointed that Samsung didn’t up the megapixel count on the camera in its latest smartphone, it did add a load of new features. We take a closer look to see what’s new.
For a look at some of the other features in the smartphone read our Samsung Galaxy S3 first look review.
What’s new in the Samsung Galaxy S3 camera?
- Burst shot
Users can take 20 photos in a continuous shooting mode. This should be good for capturing action shots.
- Best photo
This feature takes a series of photos and will then suggest the best shot based on aspects including levels of blurring and if all the subjects have their eyes open.
- Face zoom
Using face recognition, the camera is able to zoom into a face in a picture with a quick double tap. This software also allows the photos to reognise people’s faces and group photos of people together.
As well as an improved camera Samsung has also included a range of new features. Watch our videos and read about how the Galaxy S3 compares with the S2, the new software on the Galaxy S3 and the S-Voice feature.
Jon’s impressions of the Galaxy S3 camera
The camera hardware may not sound much different from what we saw on the S2 but the new S3 is packed with handy camera features that make it easier too use.
From zero lag shutter delay to the ability to take photos while shooting video, the camera software is designed to live up to Samsung’s promise that the Galaxy S3 is ‘both effortlessly smart and intuitively simple’. And it doesn’t stop once you’ve captured your image – the phone will even help share, sort and display your photos.
But ultimately it’s the picture quality that will determine whether the camera on the Samsung Galaxy S3 is a success. Photos did look sharp in our short hands on trial, helped by the fantastic screen, but we’ll put them through a far more rigorous test it our lab. Only then will we be able to say how it measures up against the cameras on models such as the iPhone 4S.
