The Secret to Pro Smartphone Photography

Camera is one of the functionalities of a smartphone we users want to know more when planning to get a new phone. And that's because photos and taking images are now a big part of our lives and also due to a lot of smartphones now offer great camera functionality at a very reasonable price and then additionally  the popularity of social media sites like Facebook and Instagram. That's why everytime a new smartphone is coming out, we almost immediately look at the camera department. Speaking of new phones, Samsung just very recently announced the Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge and they have a big promise to consumers for its camera capability. Our friends from Samsung shared us some reasons why these new devices are the must-have for professional and amateur photographers as alternatives to the heavy and bulky DSLR cameras.

Let's get one thing straight; megapixels aren't the be all and end all of smartphone cameras.

Sensors, aperture size, lens quality, camera speed, and features are just some factors that lend itself to the quality of a shot - quite like how DSLRs work. Thankfully, smartphone photography is quickly catching up to professional photography. From 2MP cameras just a few years ago, today's smartphones have more advanced cameras with up to 16MP.

Of course, not all smartphones are made equal - case in point, Samsung's latest flagship devices, the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge, which basically work as ready alternatives to the bulky DSLR kit by offering the best of both professional and point-and-shoot options. How? By being the world's first smartphones to be equipped with dual photodiode technology (2PD) originally used in DSLR cameras.

But how does this exactly work for the Samsung's Galaxy S7 Edge and S7 to deliver the professional, magazine-worthy images that you want? Check out some of the smartphones' biggest features below -

Defeat the Dark

Even in challenging light conditions, think concerts, clubs and parties, the Galaxy S7 Edge and S7's rear camera is capable of shooting premium, Instagram-worthy images. With these smartphones' Dual-Pixel camera equipped with dual photodiode technology, taking shots in the dark has never been clearer and brighter. This technology gives the S7 and S7 Edge's camera a DSLR-like quality promising better shots.

Whether you're feeling a bit lazy or like a pro, Samsung lets you shoot high-grade photos in two different modes - Pro and Auto. Just like a pro, the Pro mode allows users to shoot in RAW, a crucial feature for professional photographers which allows for stunning post-processing results. Even without editing, the Galaxy S7 Edge and S7's Pro mode also allows users to have full control over the camera's settings, such as aperture, shutter speed, ISO light sensitivity, and manual focus.

Faster Auto-Focus

Not all photo-worthy moments can be captured in one swift click. Sometimes, it's so fleeting that you don't have time to set your ISO to 800 or your shutter speed to 1/800. It's a click or nothing. And because Samsung won't let you miss your best moments, the camera is able to take stunning, vibrant photos with your subject on-point, anytime, anywhere. Again, thanks to the Galaxy S7 Edge and S7's Dual-Pixel camera, the result is the Super Fast Auto Focus that lets you clearly capture your subjects without fuss. The camera is also equipped with optical image stabilization (OIS), which eliminates unwanted shakes.

Intuitive Front Facing Camera Features

After much cooing over the impressive rear camera, it's the best front-facing 5-megapixel camera's time to shine. If there was ever a front camera made for selfies, this is it. Like the rear camera, the front camera also sports F/1.7 aperture lens for brighter selfies.

It also comes with a wide array of customized settings and filters, which add a distinctly artistic touch to front-facing shots. Even more, it is equipped with the popular Beauty Face feature that eliminates the need for touch-ups using third-party software. In the Galaxy S7 Edge and S7, the Beauty Face feature adds another effect to its selection - the Spotlight. This lets you capture selfies with the effect of natural light to highlight your face and features.

In addition, it also has the Motion Panorama and Hyperlapse features. With Motion Panorama, not only can you take panoramic shots but you can also preserve the moment to make the shots seem alive. And with Hyperlapse, taking time-lapse videos has never been more fun or easier! The Hyperlapse will surely give you clearer and more stabilized videos than any other smartphone camera. It also compresses the file into a much smaller size without compromising the quality, making it easier to share.

Professional photographers, beginners, and those just looking for a quick shot will find something to love about the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge's camera. Those looking for the convenience of a smartphone camera and capabilities of a DSLR camera, the Galaxy S7 Edge and S7 are the perfect options for you.
