Guess who has the best smartphone camera in 2016? Well, when it comes to video, it’ll be hard to beat the Galaxy Note 7! This awesome 16-megapixel camera shoots up to UHD quality video (3,840 x 2,160) with optical image stabilization. It’s probably some of the best footage I’ve ever seen from a smartphone and a fine example of how far mobile optics have come. Check out the above video for our Galaxy Note 7 cinematic camera test…
All of the footage in the above video was shot on a Galaxy Note 7 in UHD at 30 frames per second. It’s pretty amazing when you consider that it came from such a small camera sensor. The optical image stabilization on the Note 7 will drastically improve handheld video and photos. Low light performance is alright, but the Note 7’s camera really shines in appropriate lighting.
As mentioned, everything was shot right on a Samsung Galaxy Note 7 and then edited within Adobe Premiere Pro. When compared to other current smartphone video tests, the Note 7’s camera comes out on top. Recently, we shot an iPhone 6/6 Plus cinematic camera test and you can watch that video here, but the Galaxy Note 7’s camera is in a class of its own.
