Samsung has gone all out this year with the new Galaxy S21 Ultra. It truly is the ultimate smartphone, especially for photographers who want the best gear the money can buy.
Like last year’s S20 Ultra, this year’s model sports a 108 MP main camera sensor that promises to deliver incredibly sharp photos in daylight and low-light situations thanks to its unique technology. non-binning which allows 9 to 1 Pixels binning. The other three cameras on the back of the phone include a 10MP 3x telephoto camera, a 10x periscope telephoto camera, and a 12MP end sensor paired with a 120-degree ultra-wide lens that doubles as a macro camera. Up front, the Galaxy S21 Ultra has a 40-megapixel selfie camera.
For video capture, Samsung has increased the resolution and frame rate of the five cameras to 4K / 60, a first for a smartphone since most devices with a 4K selfie camera are limited to 30 frames per second. The only downside is that the phone can’t switch between the four different lenses on the back of the phone when recording in 4K / 60, so you’ll have to cut things down to 4k / 30 if that’s a feature that is. important to you.
To give you an idea of what the Galaxy S21 Ultra’s cameras are capable of, we’ve brought out the phone and captured over 100 photos and videos.

It’s almost like having a DSLR with good zoom with you at all times.
So far I’m quite impressed with the results and haven’t noticed any glaring issues with the images or videos produced by the S21 Ultra’s cameras.
