Loving my S20+ ... some photos

These are not full sized versions so if pixel peeping you will be disappointed.

Interesting - I got an S20+ to replace my Galaxy S8. Sent the S20+ straight back as felt the pictures were just terrible, far worse than the S8.

Not sure I see a lot to be pleased about with your pictures if I'm honest.

Great photos. Photography has always been about scenery, expression, light, colors, stories,... not about pixel peeping.

You can be happy with this scene's.

Lovely shots, yes as you say maybe not for pixel peeping, but great photos. But  there is appreciating photos as conveying an emotion and a scene, as opposed to looking at aspects of IQ, detail rendering and processing... and these are lovely photos.

Re: Loving my S20+ ... some photos

Thank you!  One thing I know about this site is that there are many perspectives, and I don't get bent out of shape by those who don't see what I do.  I do however appreciate when my photos were enjoyed by others, so thank you!

And yes, these won't be mistaken for full frame quality!

Did you use auto mode, or were you using manual?

I used Auto mode.   I'm sure I could get better results using manual mode but it would defeat the convenience of it all IMO and my mrs. wants us to keep walking!!    I dislike how saturated Samsung processes these photos, I do wish there was a minimum level of control for that, however I do like that in the fall to bring out the colours of the trees.

My Pen F colour science was just amazing, especially colour profile 2.

If you bought the S20+ at launch, the camera quality is far more improved now than it was 8 months ago.

Re: Loving my S20+ ... some photos

this is very true.  I was using GCAM rather than the stock camera, and it was night and day.   Even thought he recent updates broke GCAM, there are now versions that work and I prefer the Samsung Camera now, the improvements are significant.

Yip with my Note 20 Ultra I can see a significant improvement, and the latest update xxxxJ1 which was released a few weeks ago, just not out yet here in SA also states camera improvements and battery optimizations. So Samsung are definitely moving in the right direction, just wish they'd allow RAW in UWA and tele...

I bought it in October. Pictures were very poor.

Re: Loving my S20+ ... some photos

Agius, would you mind sharing the GCAM version which works on your device?

Are you on Exynos or Snapdraggon?

Thanks

I am quite pleasantly surprised with the quality of stock camera app quality on the S20+.

Low light photos produce incredible clarity and amount of details.

And mind you, this comes from the hardcore Mirrorless, full-frame photographer.

We have come a long way in the smartphone photo capabilities.
