Hi guys, wanted to ask your opinion before I contacted Samsung support. I've had my Ultra since March release. Today I decided to take a pic of the ISS above a crescent moon. This is how it looked 30x and somewhere between 30x and 100x.

Then these, not the best quality were taken on my mates Huawei P30 Pro

I then decided to investigate a little further and did a zoom test indoors wcreen recording, please check the video and see the change when I move in to 4x optical zoom, watch in full screen.

It's worse on the screen but there almost this interference straight away as i move beyond 4x weird artifacts across the screen moving up and down, zooming in just makes it worse.

 

Any ideas?

 

thank you.

mine S20+ also having the same issue. 8k Video doesnt work well too. 64MP is a ***** as well. Super steady mode for video recording is a bs also. such disappointing.

At 4x it uses the main camera. At 5x is changes to periscope camera. So, do not use 4x. 6x to 10x is best for tele.

The focus on the main camera is stil a mess.
