You may not like Samsung’s adoption of the Galaxy S Ultraline and basically reassigning it to teamnotes, but once you start using it surprisingly effectively, the look and feel of the phone, and even that feeling. Forget even the smart integrated S pen Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra zoom.
The S22 Ultra features a 12MP ultra-wide-angle lens, two 10MP telephoto lenses (left and right), and a 108MP wide-angle lens. S21 Ultra -But these specifications are a big leap from the standard Galaxy S22..
I spent a little time on my new device, but I needed to see these results. All of the pictures below were taken on the same day at the lovely Bryant Park in New York City.
In either case, start with a 108MP wide lens or a 12MP ultra wide lens and use the camera app to gradually increase from 1x to 3x, 10x zoom (all optical zooms) to 30x and 100x. It soared twice. Space Zoom (Why Samsung didn’t call this “Galaxy Zoom” is beyond me). Both are digitally enhanced telephoto images.
It’s worth noting that even with optical zoom, Samsung does a series of algorithmic somersaults to enhance the image.this is Non-navigating technology First, combine 9 pixels of information to enhance the color and contrast of the photo, then take a capture from a 108MP lens and combine it with the first result to create the final image.
The 30x and 100x space zooms are particularly impressive not only for what you can capture, but also for how the phone works to stabilize the shot. This is a technology that Samsung has completed for several years after Space Zoom debuted. Galaxy S20 series.
Samsung’s optical and digital image stabilization systems can sometimes feel a bit strange. At 100X, we’re so striving to stabilize the image that the lens feels like it has its own mind and doesn’t move in sync with the slightly swaying hand (at 100X). All movements are usually exaggerated, but ruin the photo).
Image stabilization strategies have not been 100% effective, as shown below. Still, zooming in on this level and quality on your smartphone will definitely change your mobile photography game. We’ll be back soon with more thoughts and a complete review of the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra.
In the photo set above, I stood in one place and changed the zoom, gradually switching between 1x, 3x, 10x, 30x space zoom, and 100x space zoom. I tried to reframe the photo before each shot. The transparency is pretty good up to 30x, and even at 100x the quality is significantly reduced, but the top of the building shows a lot of detail.
The light was better in this second series (above), but concerns about falling into a taxi could have affected my stability and framing. Still, the Radio City sign I’m focusing on is far from at least five blocks. The 100x space zoom shot is one of my most blurry. All of Samsung’s image stabilization tricks couldn’t overcome my unstable fingers.
I love the series of photos above, but if you have an early complaint about Samsung’s Galaxy S22 Ultra photos, it means that the colors are still a bit punchy. Yes, the sky was blue, but the saturation here is a little surreal.
Note that this series started with a 12MP ultra wide-angle lens. The last 100x space zoom shot is amazing.
Finally, although the above series of images was captured with more difficult lighting, the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra’s camera still worked well. It’s hard to believe that the smartphone’s camera captured that level of detail from the Empire State Building’s spire.
