Playing around with selective focus. I don't quite have it yet... most of the time I get a message that says selective focus could not be applied. these two worked though.

@xxteargodxx - outstanding post my friend!

I especially loved the ferry and train videos. I couldn't care less about megapixels or other specs - just results. The excellent colors and lack of wide angle distortion in those two really grabbed me. Maybe an expert would see those differently, but I thought they were great. I felt like I got to be there, places I've never been, and for me personally, that's 100% of everything I could ask for.

Btw - say the word, and I'll edit your post to embed the videos right on the page. Completely up to you.

Thanks for sharing!

Glad you like them. I plan on videoing the helicopter that lands and takes off from the water front as well, that will be quite a sight to see. Just have to see when they are next running tours hopefully in a few days.

And sure if you can edit my previous post and embed the videos I'm fine with that.

Are you guys using 1:1, 4:3 or 16:9 for pictures? And are you using the full 16meg?

Also for video, do you guys use smooth motion?

I can't figure out what I'm doing wrong. I take a lot of photos and the camera is the only thing I care about. I had an S3 that I took to Arizona and California and got great shots with it. Almost all the shots I take with my S5 are blurry. I often can see the blurring without zooming at all. I have to take 5 or 10 photos to get one that's not blurry. I've played with the settings, including stabilization. I don't want to take it back but I'm running out of ideas. The pictures of the dog and the cat that dawnierae took above...there's no way I could get those pictures. They would be blurred on my tiny screen if you blew them up to that size they would be full of blobs. Anyone have any advice?

I noticed something odd about my pictures. It seems that they are pixelated when zooming in a tiny bit. I took pictures of NYC on top of the empire state building and when opening it on my pc it seems that its pixelated. This is in pretty much all the pics. On the phone it looks great but zooming in on the pc it looks funky.

If you have your vibration mode turned on when you don't need it (like in daylight) that would cause that.

I've found that using the zoom feature (using fingers to zoom before shooting) is a lot blurry compared to taking the regular shot and then cropping afterwards.

No zooming and no vibration mode. Just the pictures are not crisp. Kinda blocky in a way.

But on the phone they look very sharp. Just not on the PC.

My wife got a new iPhone 5S the same time I got my S5. So there is a lot of friendly banter about who phone is better. The S5 or 5S... gonna be fun.
My wife is only 5' so with small hands the iPhone is perfect for her.
Here are some of them: (resized to 800 pixel width)

To us professional photographers, it is 3words no matter what/where we shoot.
COMPOSITION
LIGHTING
PATIENCE

Do you know just how hard it was to get that last picture without a bunch a people in it? Normally that Hwy 66 building has a ton a people around it like the 3rd pic. Here I am on vacation and I'm acting like I'm at work. Sometimes my wife was getting exasperated with me.

is anyone experiencing any issues with video sound like another poster mentioned? Im hoping to get my GS5 tomorrow or friday and can only think that if hte sound is not great it could be cause of whatever they use to keep it waterproof. It might have some sort of rubber membrane over the mic.

I have a portable radio that is waterproof and the complaints are it has terrible transmit feature because of the membrane covering the mic. If you remove the mic it dramatically improves the voice input but now its not water proof. :\

I can't seem to change the settings on my camera app - and there's no "settings" icon (the gear) in my camera app. How do I get there?

1. What do you mean? Can you take a screen shot of when you open your camera app?

2. is it the default/Stock camera?

3. have you done a factory reset?

When you actually have the camera on like your going to shoot a picture, the icons (gear included) should be there.This is what you should see when the camera is ON. I am pretending to take a pic of my notebook & monitor. The gear is at the top left.

Default camera; I'm in the camera like I'm taking a photo, but no gear icon, and only 3 shooting modes (auto, panorama, portrait). Have not tried to factory reset, don't want to lose everything.

There's something wrong with your camera app I would either download different cam app or reset now with about a month's amount of stuff as opposed to 6 months or a year ...down the road.

Good luck :-)

Just starting to make use of the camera...most pics to date have been good. Except for this event, see attached/inserted pic (indoor, large auditorium, dimmed lighting,from afar). Is that type environment just too much to expect good results? thanks...

Did you have picture stabilization on?
What was your ISO? Should be on 800

Yep, your missing the gear. You should reboot phone to see if it fixes it and if that don't, factory reset, if still no gear, take it where you bought it and show them. You should get a new phone.

In camera mode, click the gear, look for ISO, click it and pick what you need.

Hi everyone just thought id ask. when i first got the S5 it took some really crisp snappy photos. they took instantly and came out crystal clear. which were brilliant. i had to do a factory reset to try and cure a problem (which didn't work) and now the camera shots appear to not be as sharp. infact in comparison to my s3 i would say it wasn't any better. some of the s3 shots come out crisper.

I have tinkered with the settings and no joy. i put them back to default again. i have checked the lens hasn't got a fingerprint on. it hasn't. i can see a very very faint arc inside the lens cover around the outside of the lens. don't know if that just my eyes sight but i don't recall it being there before. I have the phone 3 weeks and its never been dropped, thrown or even slightly man handled.

what have i done to my lovely s5? Ive tried tinkering with the settings etc and i don't understand why it isn't taking photos as good as before. i have turned picture stabilisation off as i kept trying to take photos of the kids but everything was a bit hazy. i took a photo of my garden but the whole picture isn't in focus. Some of it is and some of it isn't and you can't make out all the blades of grass. You'd of though it was an 5 or 8mp camera and not a 16. i took a photo of the kids in the forest and the same thing again. some of the shot is in focus and some of it isn't. its on auto same as before. when compared to my s3 the s3 is a lot punchier.

has my camera developed a fault or is it because of the factory reset? or am i just expecting too much?

My wife and I went up to Mt Rainier National Park yesterday. Gorgeous day.

This was at the 114 year old Paradise Lodge Inn Restaurant.



Taken from the Lodge.



At Reflection Lake that was just starting to thaw out.



I'm pretty pleased the way the S5 is doing. Could be a little better indoors though.

I didn't want to hear that baileysqueen. I liked the gs3 more than the gs4 overall. So far, I don't really care for the gs5. Here a sample of my camera.

Also, when you snap pictures using my wife's gs5 there is a five second delay.

Oh sorry mate not good with your camera :-(

regarding 5 second delay taking snaps, your wife might have image stabilisation on. Try turning it off

Thanks, I will try. I haven't taken mine to be replaced yet. Has anyone else noticed after taking a picture, the camera app closes? Maybe another weird setting.

I wonder if it's the upload or your browser getting confused.

Can you share one of the links so I/we can check it with you?

Thank you for looking
Google makes photo sharing really hard (not like before) without us joining G+ circles and a chicken dance. Basically - I can't get to your pictures with those links.

Let's try this, it might work, I'm not sure but it used to -

Please bring up your pictures and try a right click, view picture. If that works, please copy and paste the link here.

And by the way - welcome to the forums!
