    outdoors is kinda ok but worse than Note 5, plus it have the oil painting effect and i hate it soo much!!!

    However, mixed light and low light is unbeatable, many of my photos are amazing in low light, i just wish normal light would be at least on par with N5.
    Yes. I agree. I wish the outdoor ones were better.

    Well, I took this one of the tree in my back yard. I think it came out great! So maybe the couple settings I changed due to this thread helped. Thanks everyone!!! Not thrilled with camera, What am I missing????-20161028_141449.jpg

    It's just about time for an upgrade and I was looking at the S7 Edge but it's not encouraging news about the camera.

    Surprised there isn't a dedicated 'show your S7 Edge photos' thread?

    They have a photos thread in the S7 forum. Since the cameras are the same in the S7/Edge, they just made one photos thread and that's in the S7 forum.

    they say the S6 / S6e camera was better for regular outdoor, I think, or not ?

    Great - can you sum up again the setting changes ?

    Is it set to full resolution? It's the best camera I've seen on a phone. I tend to put some pictures through lightroom for minor adjustments but the sensor is amazing.

    This was taken at around 6am, so just when the sun was starting to rise. I'm blown away by the low light capabilities
    What settings did you use for that shot and where is it. Looks great.

    I think the biggest change I made was changing the HDR to Auto. I also turned on video stabilization. For some pictures I took for ebay I added more natural light, and less artificial light, and that seemed to make it less grainy, and the quality much better. For the tree one I took, I think it was the way the sun was at that time. And HDR being on Auto. The shots I took of the tree turned out nice.

    No special settings, just a cloudy, low-light day.

    Does an HDR-saved photo take up a lot of memory? How much?

    Honestly, I'm not sure. I don't keep a lot of photos on my phone, I upload them and delete most of them.

    I've noticed that you need really good light and a really good subject to focus on. These are some of mine. Attachment 244214Attachment 244215Attachment 244216Not thrilled with camera, What am I missing????-277.jpg

    Other than these types of images, photos are average. Indoor shots and low light shots have a lot of noise but to be fair, in terms of smartphone cameras, this is one of the best. I don't expect dslr quality but I think a higher resolution would help in making shots look crisper.

    Low light photos will produce a lot of noise due to using a very high ISO and most people shoot handheld, this is true even with DSLR's. If you want to reduce noise, shoot manual, use a tripod, reduce the ISO and use a longer shutter speed. Also think about increasing the available light. I know for most moments this is impractical but that's the only way of getting better shots in low light. Even my DSLR struggles in point and shoot situations in low light, unless I use a very fast prime lens and then this causes problems with the DOF been very shallow.

    Agree, this camera has been optimised for low light photography, the specs tell the tale. In good light there are better options.

    Samsung cleverly has optimised it for what most folks use it for.

    They will no doubt up the game for every future version.

    After all, it's only a phone camera not a dsl.

    Well I am still trying. Don't want to have to carry a separate camera, so my phone camera is it. Hoping to figure it out, and it is doing okay. I just think in a lot of situations, my Note 4 actually took better shots.

    Yes it is. I know some pics come out nice, but I really think many of them could be better. I have been disappointed by some that were in great lighting, and I felt should have been much better than they were. BTW.....cute kitty! lol
    Well the only thing I can suggest is trying out Lightroom. You can do a fair bit with it, all the images above were put through some minor lighting editing. And thanks, he's an old boy now

    Definitely outperforms all other camera phones at the moment. Maybe not an actual dedicated digital camera, but still pretty good!
