Hi
Lovely People.

This is just a food for thought post.

I am seeing lots of zoom photos floating around the web comparing the likes of Samsung photos to that of other phones and stuff depicting the vast difference and how bad Samsung photos are.

Please consider the following when looking at this comparisons.

1. They are usually not like for like comparisons ( photo of a person against an animal. Etc)

2. Look at the exif data they are shot under.
If you know a little bit of photography you will know what I'm talking about.

3. The shots of the animals, birds , reptiles are so obvious that they have been shot in a controlled environment with artificial lighting and the subjects are probably tame in a cage and not out it the wild.

Again if you know anything about photography you will know where to look 👀.

4. This post is no where to praise Samsung as I am quiet critical of their short comings as well but it is pretty darn annoying how gullible people are on social media that it makes my blood boil especially when it comes to photography.

5. Anyways happy days . Rant Over. And most of all Just enjoy your phone your way and not get sucked into some people's ideas about how phones should work or not work.

This has been going on for years
Same on YouTube videos if you notice
Each camera will have a different focus point as well
While some reviews are a handy information source. You are reading or watching someone's point of view.
Some of the stuff I have seen is ridiculous about the S24 Ultra, and for me with mine. I'm loving the cameras.
They can do with some refinements to polish them up. But otherwise I think they are great

The Fear is with AI now you wont know what to believe nowadays.

Try Samsung's own AI for example on faces.

Remove and delete a part or parts of your face and let the AI do it's thing. It's freaky crazy good.

I don't know whether I love it or hate it🤪

All very good points raised, just a shame Samsung can't release any firmware that keeps the phone on long enough to use the camera

There's more fakes going about more than ever thanks to social media having a field day with normal pictures and creating deep fakes mainly the Meta platforms.
