Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus Camera Performance - Video Samples
Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus Camera Performance – Video Samples
Like its predecessor, the Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus (US | UK | MY) is capable of recording 4K videos from both front and back cameras. However, Samsung still limits the 4K recording time to just 10 minutes. This was likely done to ensure that the sensor does not overheat the battery.
Video Recording Test #1 : Piano (1080p)
In this video, you can see the amount of detail the sensor captures, even at just 1080p. You can also see how well its OIS capability worked, even when we switched between the main camera and the telephoto camera. Its ultra-wide camera does not support OIS, but has good EIS capability.
There was a noticeable lag when we switched from the telephoto camera to the ultra-wide camera (at minute 2:02), but there was minimal lag if we go from telephoto camera > main camera > ultra-wide camera, and vice versa.
The Galaxy S10 Plus (US | UK | MY), sadly, does not support Hi-Res Audio recording, and its noise cancellation could really be much better. We hope Samsung will look at adding context-aware noise cancellation, and perhaps a third microphone next to the rear cameras.
Video Recording Test #2 : Piano (4K)
The resolution at 4K is incredible. You can clearly read the billboard of the pretzel stand in the background!
There was, however, some auto-focus issues with the telephoto lens (which does not have a Dual Pixel sensor), and the OIS was slightly less effective at this high resolution.
Video Recording Test #3 : Piano (1080p with HDR10+)
The Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus (US | UK | MY) supports HDR10+ video recording, but many devices still do not support HDR10+. Neither does YouTube. So check out what happens when you try to view a HDR10+ video on a non-HDR10+ platform.
Video Recording Test #4 : Piano (4K with HDR10+)
Just like with the earlier 1080p video, this HDR10+ video appears washed-out when viewed on a device or platform that does not support HDR10+.
Note that this is not a criticism of the HDR10+ video recording. The videos look great on the Galaxy S10 Plus (US | UK | MY). We are just demonstrating what happens if you try to view them on non-HDR displays.
Video Recording Test #5 : Street Market (1080p)
Video Recording Test #6 : Street Market (4K)
Its image stabilisation capabilities were not diminished with the higher resolution. Overall – very good OIS and EIS performance.
