Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra Video Samples
Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra : Video Samples
Like the Galaxy S20 Ultra, the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra is capable of recording 8K video from its 108 MP main camera.
But it no longer has the 5 minute limit, and even supports electronic image stabilisation, as well as optical image stabilisation provided by the lens.
It retains the ability to switch between cameras, and the Camera app now lets you smoothly zoom all the way to 20X at 30 fps, with six preset steps – 0.5x, 1x, 2x, 4x, 10x and 20x.
If you wish to record 60 fps videos (whether 1080p or 4K), then you are limited to a maximum zoom of 10x.
When you use the zoom presets, it no longer “jumps”, but transitions smoothly for a more professional effect.
However, the Camera app requires you to pinch to zoom before the zoom presets appear – a major hindrance that we hope they will soon correct.
Video Sample #1 : 20X Space Zoom
While you can zoom all the way to 50X for photos, Space Zoom is limited to 20X for videos.
The best image quality though is limited to 10X zoom. Beyond that, it starts to get blurry, and image stabilisation isn’t that good.
Video Sample #2 : 1080p vs 4K Space Zoom
In this video, we compare the 20X Space Zoom performance while recording at 1080p and 4K resolutions. At 8K, you are limited to just 6X zoom.
It seems to perform similarly well at both resolutions. Best image quality and stabilisation is seen at up to 10x zoom.
Video Sample #3 : Image Stabilisation At 1080p
Image stabilisation at 1080p is very good, with gimbal-like performance. When we stopped walking at the end, the hand shake is almost imperceptible.
Handheld video recording is excellent at 1080p, even without turning on Super Steady mode!
Video Sample #4 : Image Stabilisation At 4K
At 4K, vertical image stabilisation is very good, which almost eradicates the up and down movement of walking. However, panning appears rather jerkier than at 1080p.
Turning on Super Steady mode will smoothen things out, but drops the resolution to 1080p.
Video Sample #5 : Image Stabilisation At 8K
At 8K, there does not appear to be any electronic image stabilisation, but fortunately, most of the jerkiness is smoothened out by the optical image stabilisation provided by the lens.
While not as gimbal-like smooth as 1080p or 4K, the image stabilisation at 8K is decent enough.
