Jul 2 10:52 2011 Chris Westley Print This Article

The Samsung Galaxy S2 is one of the most advanced smartphones available today. Boasting an advanced 4.3 inch touchscreen, and 1.2 GHz dual-core processor among its key features, it is also an impressive cameraphone. 

In this article I will look at how the Samsung Galaxy S2 fairs as cameraphone by taking a closer look at its photography specifications.

 

The Camera Hardware & Application

The camera itself operates at 8 megapixels,Guest Posting (3264x 2448 resolution), meaning that the resulting still images are of very high quality. To make it easier to take high quality picture, a number of image enhancing features re included. Once you have opened the camera application, everything is nicely laid out and very easy to use. There is a settings icon which presents options such as flash, shooting mode, scene mode, exposure value and focus modes. Users can easily change these to suit their own preferences. There is also an icon to instantly turn the LED flash on or off, so you can get the best results for the particular lighting conditions of the shot. If you will mainly be taking pictures of people, you will find it very useful to have the face detection mode enabled. This automatically detects faces and focuses on them automatically, which is one less thing to worry about when trying to take the perfect photo.  

 

One of the more impressive aspects of modern smartphones is that users can also use the camera to shoot video footage. It was not long ago that 720p was the highest video quality that you could shoot on a cameraphone. The Samsung Galaxy S2 is one of the first to go one better, offering the ability to shoot full 1080p high definition. As an added bonus, users can also wirelessly stream their handiwork to a compatible TV. This means you can share your videos and photos in full HD on the big screen which is ideal for showing to groups of people, as they will not have to crowd around the phone.

 

There are a number of other features included which make the Samsung Galaxy S2 the ideal cameraphone. For starters, the large screen (and especially its brilliant display quality) means users will have a very good idea of what a photo will look like before it has even been takes. Also the dual-core processor plays a very important role in how the handset operates as a camera. It provides the power for the applications to actually operate, but also means there is virtually zero lag between the time it takes to press the shoot button and the camera to actually take the shot. This is a problem with some lesser cameraphones, as the perfect shot setup is often over before the phone has even finished taking the photo. Thanks to the powerful processor, pictures are taken the instant the user presses the capture button, so it is also ideal for action shots.

 

All in all, the Samsung Galaxy S2 is among the most advanced cameraphones out there, as well as one of the most impressive smartphones in general. Its power and features make it worth a closer look if you are in the market for the perfect cameraphone.
