Welcome back to my Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge Camera Shootout Part 3. Scroll back to read Part 1 and Part 2.
In Part 3 I will be looking at some specific aspects of the camera. Firstly, how does the S7 Edge cope with sun flare and shooting directly in to the sun. I also added some shots from the Apple iPhone 6S Plus as a comparison. It is worth noting that you can record video with still photos and at the same time as snapping panoramic shots.
Sun Flare Shots
The first shot is from the iPhone 6S Plus and then from the S7 Edge. From my point of view the S7 Edge does a better job.
Another test. iPhone 6S Plus first then the S7 Edge.
Aiming at the Sun
Below is a shot from the S7 aiming directly at the sun itself. Rather impressive.
This mode should not be ignored. You can create some really arty shots with this mode. Here the church cross becomes centre of attention with the background all blurred nicely.
Below are two panoramic shots from the S7 Edge.The speed of taking and saving these photos is super fast. Decent size outputs as well.
And finally a close up shot of a headless tap.
Overall some good photos. Part 4 will be looking at low light and night shots. Long exposures in Pro mode will be used too to see what tricks can be pulled off by this phone. This will go live on Monday.
All I can say is the night and low light post on Monday is staggering and needs to be seen to be believed. For this post I did test the S7 Edge vs iPhone 6S Plus as well.
