Page 4 : Samsung Galaxy A9 Pro - Camera & Video Recording Performance
Although they use different sensors, the camera performance of the Samsung Galaxy A9 Pro is quite similar to that of the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge (Amazon) smartphone. The difference is only noticeable if you blow up the pictures and compare them side-by-side. The Galaxy A9 Pro pictures have more noise and less edge resolution.
Pixel peeping aside, the Galaxy A9 Pro‘s main camera is definitely one of the better cameras in this segment. The colour is accurate and vivid, even in poor lighting.
Video Recording Performance
Despite sporting a 16 MP sensor, the Samsung Galaxy A9 Pro‘s rear camera is not capable of recording 4K UHD videos. It can only record 1080p videos. Perhaps this is Samsung’s way of differentiating the Galaxy A9 Pro from Samsung’s more premium models like the Samsung Galaxy S7 edge.
The Galaxy A9 Pro‘s camera supports optical image stabilisation, so handshake is minimised. However, it does not support electronic image stabilisation. Probably another product differentiation decision.
To test the Galaxy A9 Pro‘s video recording capabilities, we recorded both a cheerleading contest, and a piano performance by Yang I-Deun. Check them out!
The optical image stabilisation really helped to reduce handshake, which can be a problem since the Galaxy A9 Pro is large and quite heavy. Too bad it does not support electronic image stabilisation. That would have helped stabilise the image even more.
