Samsung Galaxy S8 Camera

- Posted in General

enter image description here

It has been a few years for Samsung Galaxy series to have a serious improvement in camera quality. Recently, we can see that the company is pretty serious improving the camera quality by reviewing the Galaxy S7’s camera which is said to be better than the camera on the iPhone 6S in some respects. If we look back at this fact, we are optimistic about the Samsung Galaxy S8 camera. We also have collected all news, rumors, and reports related to the Galaxy S8 camera. Hopefully, we can help you figure out how the Galaxy S8 camera will be.

Based on the recent report about Samsung Galaxy S8 camera, it says that Samsung will go a step further for the Galaxy S8. The report says that the company won’t just focus on improving the rear camera for the Galaxy S8, but the front-facing camera will also get some attention. It is rumored that the Galaxy S8 may feature an autofocus selfie camera, according to ETNews in South Korea. A rear camera with autofocus is none of the special, but if it happens to the front-facing camera, it is something. The rumor says that the camera will allegedly feature an encoder sort of focusing mechanism rather than a voice coil motor. It means that the focusing actuator will be on the side of the lens rather than the middle of the lens. The actuator will also reportedly recognize people located at different distances in the frame. With this feature, it is going to be optimized for group shots. While for the rear camera, according to a tip from Chinese social media site Weibo, saying that the phone will feature a dual 12MP + 13MP rear-facing camera, which ties into the trend for dual-camera setups. Whereas we got the unclear picture about exactly how it will work, or what type of effects it will produce before the company announce the new handset officially.

For more leaks about Samsung Galaxy S8, we have the best evidence of a camera upgrade that is a recent Samsung patent filing in South Korea. The patent describes a newly improved zoom function for smartphones. From this patent, we can speculate that Samsung plans to mimic the iPhone 7 Plus, and add a dual-camera module with a telephoto zoom lens. This leaks, of course, strengthen the rumors about adding autofocus on the S8’s front-facing camera. There is no reason for Samsung couldn’t introduce such an upgrade for the next generation of Samsung Galaxy.

Sony Alpha A99 II

- Posted in General

Sony has released a new camera, Sony Alpha A99 II. Although in the past this type of announcements often already far in advance were leaked, there was now up to a few minutes before the actual announcement no indication that it would go to this camera.

Sony Alpha A99 II Review

That such a camera in development was very expected, the A99 motorway has been announced four years ago and with all the new developments in the E-mount cameras was to be expected that this also in the A-mount were going to come back.

Stabilization

For the first time in an A-mount camera, the Sony A99II the five-axis stabilization which we also know from the II models of the A7 series. Because the semi-transparent mirror used in the A99II a little light stops, is a better stabilization a beautiful addition to a little longer out of control photos.

Buffer

A much-heard point about shooting with the A7rII is that the photos you take are not directly sometimes to look back and certainly not to zoom in to do a check on sharpness for example. The A99II has the same sensor and has to avoid this problem a new front end LSI so that images are written faster and less quickly fills up the buffer.

New developments

During the short presentation prior to the hands-on by Yoma Hori, the head of digital imaging in Europe, the highlights of this new camera rapidly over, I leave them here.

Menu

For many people the Sony menu remains a stumbling block, I regularly give workshops for people who do not get everything out of the camera and only the menu with an explanation you can just a half day cost. It was indicated that listened to this criticism and therefore simplified the menu now.

Sensor

The 42.4 MP sensor is the same as in the A7rII, so also without Low Pass filter.

Autofocus

The A99II has the same autofocus system as the A7rII, namely hybrid phase detection. At this camera with reflective mirror is the image that enters through the mirror to the AF sensor controlled and there is also autofocus on the sensor. This results in 399 focus points, of which 79 cross-hybrid. This brings you to an image coverage of 47% in A99II compared to 29% at the A99. The dedicated AF sensor provides the focus of the horizontal lines, which on the sensor does the vertical lines where they cross each other you get the 79 hybrid cross points, which are the same as conventional cross points.

There are 323 focus points that you can select. Now that's generally what many to quickly scrolling if you want to choose a focus point. Thus you can also choose 63 or by 15 points to be able to walk when choosing your focus point. Choose you like this way your focus point, then there is also the possibility for the extensive selective point or expandable flexible spot. Then keep the focus not only the chosen point but also the points around them in the holes.

FPS

Where clearly it started with this camera, the shots that you can create in quick succession. You can choose like the A6300 for 12 fps, 8 fps gives a Liveview, so you will not come too short and fast at moving objects with the improved buffer function you can get to about 50 images before your camera will go faster.

Tethering

Hang your camera directly to the computer for product and portrait photography then you have now the possibility to beside that your photos are stored only on your computer, save it on your memory card, in both RAW and JPG or both.

The body is still manufactured from magnesium but has been redesigned. He is now 8% smaller, the grip is improved and there is now room for two SD card slots. On all possible inputs, including buttons, rubber sealing rings, so that the camera dust-and-water-resistant. The shutter is now about 300,000 leisure activities and the viewfinder has gotten an upgrade. This now offers a magnification of 0, 78 x, but retains its 2.360 k dots OLED Panel. However, the lenses in the viewfinder improved for better clarity.

A 24 Megapixel sensor was the basis for the original model, but this is now upgraded to no less than 42.4 megapixels. It is a backside-illuminated Exmor R sensor with copper wiring for faster reading. The standard ISO range is 100-25,600 but can be extended to 50-102400. For better details of the optical low-pass filter is omitted. On that sensor are now 399 autofocus sensors that work with the separate auto focus module. Which module has a further 79 cross-point sensors with better precision? The 4 d Focus system, such as Sony calls it, combines those two forms of phase-detection autofocus and can be as continuous focus offer in situations with very little light to EV-4.

Sony Alpha A99 II Review: The camera can also with 12 fps shooting while maintaining focus tracking. Image stabilization does Sony with the image sensor and does so at the A99 Mark II on five different axes-horizontal, vertical, horizontal tilt, vertical tilt, and rotation. The result is that the shutter can 4.5 stop slower for more light.

On board is also a new X Bionz image processor. This makes include the 12 fps burst rate possible and also ensures that there is now in 4 k can be included with full pixel readout. On 4 k resolution can do so with up to 30 fps at 100 Mbps. Full HD can be shot at 120 fps with 100 Mbps, making the slow motion so also belongs to the possibilities.
