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.
Love the focus control on the new Google camera.
Took some new pictures with my Galaxy S5, just some random stuff video too down below enjoy!

@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.
Some flowers. I keep the resolution to 2mp or 6 max.
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.
Just figured I'd start a post for pictures taken with the phones amazing camera.
Here are some of them: (resized to 800 pixel width)
Jack58, easy to see your photo background the way those have been posed.
To us professional photographers, it is 3words no matter what/where we shoot.
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.
Got a few new videos I took today in Ultra HD
One of a ride on the Ferry across the Hudson River.
And a video of the World Financial Center and the Reflection Pools
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. :\
Very impressed with the camera on this phone, only took a few shots, one of my soundbar, detail in the speaker cone is really nice. Also a shot of my camera gear............
Here's a pic that I took using my s5 I love it
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.
Too bad it is a Canon! I have a Nikon... you know, Fords/Chevy's don't get along!
Here is what I use for my photography work:
