Samsung has finally made it to the twin back camera fraternity with its new Galaxy Note 8. With models like OnePlus5 and LG G6, Dual back camera phones are quickly taking over the solo camera mobile market.
With the availability of so many budding options, the competition is pretty high. So, it’s hard to determine which one is better than the other. But, there is just one feature that sets the Note 8 apart from the rest others.
Unlike the other models, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 has optical image stabilization in both of its rear cameras. This means that both cameras deliver excellent low light results because their shutters remain open for a prolonged time. This also results in decreasing the noticeable shake in the recorded videos.
Conversely, all the other models with dual back cameras, like the ones mentioned above, do have OIS but in just one of their cameras. For instance, the 7 Plus features a wide angled camera and a telephoto camera on its rear side. But, only the former one comes with the OIS.
One of the cameras in every other twin back camera phones is generally a telephoto one. And in case you don’t know, images from telephoto cameras tend to be much shakier but the addition of OIS on the camera can prevent that. So, what Samsung has done is the need of the time.
Whichever camera you opt for shooting in the Galaxy Note 8, you get all the benefits of OIS. In addition to capturing great pictures, double OIS also delivers a heightened experience of the reality applications. And it also paves the way for further development in such apps that can be used for tracking of the AR imageries through the camera.
However, the twin OIS in the Galaxy Note 8 isn’t the model’s only forte. Samsung Note series has really up their game by adding a double pixel sensor in Note 8’s wide angled camera. This is the same sensor that manufacturer has used in their brand new Galaxy 8. This sensor lets you quickly and precisely focus your subject, irrespective of its position in the frame.
Additional Exciting Features
There are several other interesting features in the Galaxy Note 8 too. One of such praise-worthy features is the dual-capture mode. This mode allows you to click an image with both of the back cameras concurrently while giving you the option to have a live view of any one of them.
Another exciting feature is the Live Focus mode. This mode is great for shooting portraits because it creates an artistic effect in your picture by blurring the background while keeping the subject sharp. For the same reason, other models like iPhone 7-Plus etc. have introduced this feature as portrait mode.
But, the difference between both of them is that the Note 8 gives you a live view of the camera and allows you to make adjustments in the bokeh prior to clicking the picture. And you also have the option to adjust it after you have shot the image. This gives you more control over your photograph.
One more great thing about Note 8 is its optical zoom, which is up to 2X. This results in much lesser noise and high-resolution pictures when clicked in the zoomed mode, unlike the digital zoom that completely distorts the picture quality.
Although being a new model, all of these assessments are just in theory so far, but considering all the comparisons, the future of Galaxy Note 8 seems quite promising. The rest will be revealed with time.
