In recent years mobile cameras They have stopped being what they were, becoming capable of obtaining practically professional photographs. However, many are the options that say they are still unable to compete with DSLR cameras that remain one notch above.
However this could come to an end, at least in part thanks to the zoom that Samsung is preparing for the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra, a great evolution that will allow us to take a step forward in the mobile camera industry and who does not even know what it could end up meaning, since the photos will never be the same again.
A zoom to beat them all with “movement”
According to the latest filtration via Weibo of the well-known Ice Universe, Samsung would be working on further improving the cameras of the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra, lenses that already surprised us all, among other things, because of their 108 Mpx, but also with the impressive 100x zoom that allows us to capture images of what is at long distances.
This time the filtration brings with it a change in technology as the S22 Ultra integrated a continuous optical zoom, which means that it will move the elements of the interior to adapt it to the needs of the user. In this way, the zoom would no longer be fixed and rely on a crop or software to obtain the images.
A technology that we have already been able to see also in the Sony Xperia 1 III with a similar solution but nevertheless the sensor of the S22 Ultra it could vary from a zoom of 3x to 10x, ensuring that there is no type of loss in the process. This will result in mobile being able to compete more directly with today’s professional DSLR cameras.
Key evolution in collaboration with Olympus
A few days ago we learned that Samsung and the prestigious Olympus brand were beginning to work collaboratively and this first change in the face of Samsung Galaxy star of 2022 it would be a first “appetizer” of what is to come to mobile photography. We will remain attentive to see how this implementation occurs in a body as thin as that of smartphones today.
Some changes that could continue in the front cameras with the integration of the sensor under the screen as already rumored in the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3.
