Samsung Malaysia has recently worked together with artistic photographer Michael Yeoh to teach Galaxy Note8 users the art and science behind the capture of stunning photos using the smartphone in Kuala Lumpur. Being the first dual camera smartphone, it takes picture-perfect shots with its dual optical image stabilizer (OIS) on both lenses, along with new Live Focus and Dual Capture features.
“Our vision is to take smartphone photography to a whole new level, to redefine the future of photography. We want users to capture special moments the way they want to remember them and our latest mobile camera innovations introduced in the Galaxy Note8 allow them to just do that. We want users to do what they can’t before, to capture big and express bigger,” said Mr KM Liew, Head of IM Business, and Samsung Malaysia Electronics.
The dual camera feature takes the spotlight; it is made up of two separate cameras, with each image sensor working in a complimentary way to each other. One camera captures normal shots with colour images while the second camera adds elements to the image. This is enhanced even more with a clear, high-quality photography that utilises both the phone’s rear wide-angle lens.
The new Live Focus and Dual Capture features give users creative control to produce stunning photographs that stand above the rest. This is due to the fact that the Live Focus allows adjusting of the bokeh effect – the aesthetic quality of the blur produced in the out-of-focus parts of an image – to change the depth of field of a shot.
Its high-quality close-up shots are heightened with 2X optical to 10X digital capabilities, be it far distances or low lighting conditions. The telephoto lens makes the subject appear close without enlarging any portion of it.
The Galaxy Note8 is also equipped with an industry-leading 8MP F1.7 autofocus front-facing camera for sharp selfies and video chats, so selfie lovers and vloggers will get hooked to this new smartphone too!
