The Galaxy S7 Video Review Shot Entirely On The Galaxy S7 ItselfBy cheatmaster 05:10 Sun, 01 Aug 2021 Comments
Our latest video review is up, focusing on the brand recent Samsung Galaxy S7. But what’s more fascinating is that we shot it entirely on a second Samsung Galaxy S7. And it turned out remarkable - so here’s why the Galaxy S7 is a superb videography tool that can even fill in for real work tasks.
The Samsung Galaxy S7 isn’t the only phone that can record excellent video quality but it is the only one with an aperture as wide as f/1.7, which allows to haged the ISO as low as possible.
While we mostly filmed the video review by using manual focus we did utilize Samsung’s Dual Pixel technology too. It’s mind-blowingly quick indeed - it can even give top phase detect systems in interchangeable lens cameras a run for their money. The optical image stabilization did a remarkable job of capturing stable hand-held footage but of course, it still can’t beat the solid tripod when you’re after professional looking capturing camera work.
But there’s more to a fine video than just hardware. We’re used to filming our reviews with high-discontinue cameras like the Canon 5D Mark III which offers a higher grade of control over a smartphone. Here’s where Samsung’s Pro mode was a must-use. It makes the shutter speed, ISO, white balance and focus user-accessible. These give you real control over the footage and how it will turn up. An added bonus is the fact that the Galaxy S7 5.1” Super AMOrganic Light-Emitting Diode (OLED) classy screen is a much better viewfinder compared to the Canon 5D Mark III’s 3” LCD.
The Galaxy S7 battery proved reliable too - we shot a lot of video on a single charge. The phone never heated up too badly either.
The Samsung Galaxy S7 is quite capable when it comes to video quality. Sure, you can disclose that the video wasn’t made with our usual capturing camera but at first glance you wouldn’t say it was shot on a phone either.
The amount of background blur from the Galaxy S7 isn’t quite enough for getting a bokeh-licious background but it’s still impressive for a smartphone.
Stay tuned for our next video review of the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge - captured with a Galaxy S7 Edge!
