Samsung Galaxy Note 8 - Dual Camera Redefine the future of Photography
Hey merry goers.
Mobile photography is so eminent in our society especially to capture those Instagrammable shots and to capture those picture worthy snaps. Smartphones are now equipped with powerful cameras which can be at par with digital cameras. Honestly speaking how many of us actually have our cameras around with us all the time? It gets frustrating when I stumble across an interesting cafe or when I want to take a photo but my phone fails to capture it picture perfect.
Plus there is the Live Focus feature which iPhone users will know as the Portrait mode. The new Live Focus and Dual Capture feature actually allows you to adjust the bokeh or blur effect of the background so that you can change the depth of field and make the subject the main focus. One feature which wins the Portrait mode is that you can actually control the intensity of the overall blur effect and apply it to the image before saving it. Plus with the Dual Capture, you are able to actually capture two images. Both the Live Focus image (close up) as well as the wide angle image. This means you will be able to choose between the close up photo or the overall image.

Another important aspect is the Pro mode for those who prefer to have full control over your photos. In the Pro mode, you can adjust your ISO, Aperture, Focus Mode, White Balance etc. This is a useful feature especially if you want to adjust how your photo turns out. The Pro mode allows you to use the dual camera just like on a mirrorless or DSLR camera.
You can also opt between the Auto Focus and Manual Focus in the Pro Mode. Instead of tapping on the area that you want to focus on, you actually adjust it by moving left or right on the screen.
There is also now built in stickers for those of you who love using stickers in Snapchat and Instastory. Now you don't need to go into the app to add stickers to your photo. There are several cute filters and stickers available but I'm not sure if they will add more in the future.
Personally for me, the one feature that actually makes me a Note fan is the S-pen. Before I was a Note user, I never thought that having a stylus actually makes any difference unless you were a businessman/woman. But after I started using it, oh boy you really don't know how it can make your life so much easier. I use it to jot notes, doodle, crop images from my screen with just the S-pen. I felt so handicapped when I lost my phone because the things I could do with just the click of the S-pen, I no longer could.
For those creative whiz, having the S-pen really makes life so much easier especially if you are in design or interior or just an artist. Those of you who have memory as weak as mine, the S-pen is just amazing when you need to jot down notes on the go.
The camera feature in the new Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is a selling point for those of you who emphasize on camera features. Pre-orders are opened until 10 September with saving up to RM888, so if this is the phone for you go get it.
