Samsung Galaxy S5 leverages a feature usually seen in DLSRs, called Phase Detection Autofocus, to get the Galaxy S5 camera to focus in only 0.3 seconds. That means less lag time between pressing the button and snapping a picture. All the better to get that perfect shot. When you’re setting up for the shot, the Galaxy S5 can also offer a live preview of HDR mode. Capturing HDR images should also be much faster.
The sensor will be able to record 4K video at a resolution of 3840×2160. You won’t be able to enjoy it in full resolution on the GS5′s 1080p screen, but 4K TVs are starting to come down in price. HDR is available in video mode too. A 4K video in HDR? Yes, please.
Check out the 4K video shot using the Galaxy S5, the 4K recording is set to be the standard in high-end devices this year, and while the image quality when shooting in 4K looks stunning, it does take up a lot of space. A 1-minute 4K video shot at 30 fps uses almost 1 GB of space. No wonder the Galaxy S5 features a microSD card slot that can accommodate a 128 GB SD card.
