Default Galaxy S5 Camera Thread - ** Please Post Samples! **

With the advent of ISOCELL technology, I'm surprised that nobody has started a discussion thread for the S5's camera, so I'll kick it off with this.

Below is an article with full-size pics that compares low-light performance of the S5's 16MP ISOCELL shooter to the Experia Z2's 20.7MP shooter and the HTC One M8's 4 UltraPixel camera:

What think ye?

Wow, no comparison, the S5 clearly trounces the One & the Z2. The One is really bad, pretty amazing.

On the first link, it's no contest. S5 camera is clear winner with better details, sharpness. Z2 images are often too noisy.

Probably just the aspect ratio of the highest native resolution possible.

I agree that the Z2 has performed badly, but all are OK at "web size", and conversely none stands up to viewing full size - the noise reduction has removed a lot of detail when viewed like that.

As a little experiment, I downloaded a few of these and rescaled them to the size of the M8 image (or the long axis to the M8 size, in the case of the Z2 with it's 4x3 ratio), to try to get an impression of what the real differences in detail might be. The results were mixed. In the crossroads picture the S5 image is clearly the best - most detail and best sharpness - and the Z2 the weakest. But in the statue image the S5 is the noisiest and least detailed even after downscaling. Of course this does assume no technique failures on the part of the photographer, but the problem in that image looks like noise/noise reduction rather than blur. Maybe light was lower, or maybe a lower contrast subject was more challenging for it.

I'm actually more curious about daylight images, because to actually exploit the 16MP resolution in a sensor that size is going to put a lot of demands on the lens. In fact it's very close to being diffraction limited: for an F2.2 lens the Airey disk (diffraction spot due to the lens aperture) is going to be 2-3 microns wide (purple/blue -> red light). The pixel width is 1.12 microns. So with a perfect lens the pixel size is smaller than the spot size due to diffraction, i.e. you are oversampling. Oversampling does bring a gain in resolution up to a point, but even with a perfect lens the optical resolution is already being limited by diffraction rather than the pixel size. I'm sure the camera designers know this (the parameters are so much on the limit that I'm sure it's not coincidence), but am curious to see whether they were able to (consistently) produce a lens that was up to this.

(The flip side, of course, is that unless the lens is very good they could have gained on noise with no loss of resolution by using fewer pixels.)

Don't forget these are just pictures and we're not even discussing 4K video. In that category, based on what's been released thus far, there is no comparison. The S5 really trounces the Z2.

I was originally convinced I would get the Z2 based primarily on looks & camera, but it doesn't look like that will happen. I can only ignore the results I've seen from the Sony camera (pix & video) so much. I really don't think there's a contest here.

Add to that delay after delay and the fact there's not even a confirmation that the Z2 will be carried in the U.S. and that spells disaster for my purposes. Then when I went to look at the S5, it looked much better, aesthetically, than I thought it would based on the pix I had seen.

That camera is going to be bananas!!! If the camera works that well on the Google play edition without Samsung's pixy dust I may have to take the plunge...Not a huge Samsung fan after the Galaxy Nexus BS and bad radios & WiFi issues, but if all that is fixed and that shooter does what they say it does on a stock version...I'm in!

Are the S5 pictures JPGs and how large are they? I would guess they're pretty large which folks should be aware of if they upload with 4G. Hopefully there's an option to upload on WiFi only.

I took this with minimal lighting and no flash. The lights u can see to the left and one was behind me. The wall behind the TVs was dark and the camera illuminated it quite nicely

Have you guys done much video recording with this? All the youtube examples I saw the mic sounded terrible picture looks wonderful, compared to the HTC m8. I know this is a camera thread but I felt it's related to the full video experience.

Can anyone confirm/deny mic quality with video?

As far as I can tell Youtube is not supporting HD higher than 720p...? I'd love to see some true 4k video shot with the S5. Links?

Just realized my camera was on the 6mp setting before so got some new pics of the ride on the full 16mp setting.

Phone Arena's traditional camera comparison is up. I wonder if they'll do another blind poll later...

So, we wanted to know how the 16MP camera on the Samsung Galaxy S5 performs, and the results from our comparison are now in. The answer is not going to surprise anyone – the phone is ideal for taking photos and videos under a broad range of circumstances. Its camera is fast, reliable, and with a rich arsenal of modes and settings to experiment with. Sure, the snapper was not a perfect performer in every single test that we put it through, but still, it ranks among the best on the market.


The Google Nexus 5 and the HTC One (M8) are trailing behind the pack, just like the case was in our previous comparison. Their cameras aren't bad by any means, and the photos we just presented for you prove that, but if you want a smartphone with a truly great, versatile camera that would tackle even the trickiest of scenes, you might want to look elsewhere

Haven't taken any great shots yet. Although someone pointed out to me today (it can be done in post with appropriate app I guess), that you can't do the colour enhancement thing where everything is grey scale except for chosen colour. Also, I thought I read somewhere that there is a camera app in the play store, or maybe Samsung app store that replaces the main camera app, does it have any differences?

I am loving this phone so far but the only irritating thing is that 9 out of 10 times when i try to take the contrast focus picture I get this message

"Picture Saved but unable to apply Focus Contrast effect"

does anyone else face this problem and whats the correct way to use it?

thanks

For those wanting to try it, here is a review of the newly released camera app from Google. Originally only available on Nexus devices, they have now opened it up for all android devices. It even includes features like lens blur.

Samsung has a massive advantage in the camera and it's really awesome. The Galaxy S5 sports a 16-megapixel rear camera with 4K (UHD) video recording capability. Camera in action is amazing crisp clear bright.

This is a couple of shots of some gorgeous homes that I passed yesterday while out on the job.

This guy is the inventor of the Electric Gate... wonder if his patents are still bring in money?









Can you see the car by the house? What brand/model is it?


Load the big image and on each of them, crop down to just the house in the background. look at the detail that comes up. The S5's camera is no slouch.... and this while the truck was rolling past at 10 mph and just using the "click it now" soft button.

Darn it, Photobucket resized the darn thing down to 1024x576 I am uploading to YouSendIt now.

Default Impressed with S5 camera performance indoors!

As a professional photographer, I'm picky. I use the Nikon D3 and f/2.8 lenses for my wildlife and nature photography. I use the Nikon D5200 for the easy stuff when it is not important. I may just start leaving the D5200 home as this S5 is doing so well. Here is two indoor shots I got yesterday at Target. I saw where Samsung and Iphone are going ahead with elaborated displays. Saleslady there said she is selling more Samsungs than iPhones, but not by much. She expects that to change when they unveil the iPhone S6. The S5 is pretty darn good shooting indoors:

What settings did you use? The first one looks a lot crisper than the second. Both good pics though for indoors. Still trying to figure out the best settings myself.

Whatever setting came stock. I haven't tried any of the other setting yet.

It don't do so bad outside either.

This pix was shot w/o moonlight against a rather dull background. Oklahoma native stone wall on the house. Red pavers for the graveled area and the wife's knick knacks for her to enjoy.

She is wheelchair bound, so I have to help her improve her nearby surroundings.

This was taken the first night I had it in my hands, default settings w/stock camera. I wasn't smart enough to know how to use the GS5 yet. Just turned the flash 'ON' and clicked the shutter button.

... I have a lot of interior shots of the house taken w/o flash that really surprised me and totally made BullTerds out of the so called 'Expert Reviewers' who claimed this camera is totally useless indoors.... but my wife would kill me if I advertised my sloppy housekeeping so you don't get to see those

But a recent news reported that the Galaxy S5 has a big camera defect. Samsung admitted the problem, and Samsung offers free replacement if the S5 has the camera problem.

I have also seen those news reports and this forum has reports of them also. Seems to be a shutter issue when the camera app is not being used.

But, the only problem with my GS5 so far is my lack of knowing every nook and cranny of its' capabilities.

I take a lot of those "news reports" with a generous dose of Epsom Salts, because the tiniest of details is totally blown out of this world's proportions by those who want to detract from the GS5.

I feel that "most of the reported issues" are from folks who want to try and kill a good phone's reputation. Apparently a few cameras have had the loose shutter part, but not mine.

I have over 50 years experience in the world of electronics maintenance/repairs on good equipment and bad equipment. All of it had detractors at some point in its' life.

Until I see it for myself and can make my own "informed judgement call", I just read it, file it in the bookmarks for "later perusal" if needed.

So far, this GS5 in my hands has been a good solid performer and bravo to Samsung for resisting the BS folks who wanted 32 kitchen sinks built into the thing. I think it is just pretty much "just right" the way it is.

Everything I need for "everyday use" is there, and it works well. I have added 3 or 4 apps to tweak it a tiny bit. A better alarm clock comes to mind.

All of my issues have been resolved by getting on this forum and asking questions and getting good answers.

And a double High Five to Samsung for allowing me to Disable Anything I Don't Want... Which I have done to most of their supplied apps.

I'm with Sprint and my S5 camera died. Tried turning on the camera app and nothing happened. Then 5 seconds later, trying to open the camera app again, it said camera failed. Brought it into a Corp Sprint store and had the techs look at it. They replaced it on the spot. But since I am now past the 14 day window I am hoping the camera doesn't die on this one.

I didn't beat on the camera at all. I used burst shots a few times and took regular pictures. I'm happy with the phone and the camera is very good. Just don't want to go through the hassle again.

Not sure about the big defect part.

Any defect that hits any of us are big to those affected. I got hit by a rare bug on another model but it was massive to me personally.

Clearly, some lot of manufactured SGS5 models have a defective camera.

Unfortunately, the sales and distribution model today is test some, then ship, then deal with returns because that's cheaper.

I can quote lots of models from lots of makers who have had those reports.


Not saying that I approve - far from it - just that it's a common deal, driven by economy of scale.


My hat's off to Samsung for owning it and agreeing to replace problem units without a lot of hassle.

Lemons can happen at any time, whether new phones or washing machines. Exercise your consumer protections, that's what they're there for.

The real test for me is next week when I go to Disneyland with my wife.
I will be leaving the Nikons at home and just using the S5 as there is a LOT of walking around at Disneyland.
But it will be a good test for the S5 camera as I will take lots of pics.
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.

14 days doesn't matter when it's a defect. The phone is under warranty for that. The 14 days is in case you don't like the phone.
