    Except for portrait mode I prefer the s21. Colors are better, and owning an s21 I can tell you the zoom is amazing and even tho auto mode is really impressive with increased control in pro there really isn't much need for my SLR anymore with these insane cameras now. The sound on s21 is also pretty good, the i12 at least in your review sounds pretty muffled. Thanks for great review

    Don't use night mode to take night time pictures on the s21 Ultra. I found that using pro photo and manually adjusting the iso and shutter speed makes the night shots a lot better in my opinion.

    The ultra allows you to change from bright to natural filters that are applied when you first open the camera app. That may lead to better pics being set on natural

    I just got a s21 ultra a few days ago and I've really enjoyed watching all these videos about how great it is lol.

    Genuinely appreciate camera reviews as my household is split on brands, and has photographers. Personally I feel like the 2 you gave to apple you seemed to do based on low light shooting and I am not sure I fully agree, but you did call it well about Samsung making night look more like day. I have found great luck taking night time photos with it using the manual settings. Also, can one take a clear picture of the moon with the IPhone? My 20 plus does really quite well with it.

    MKBHD & Mrwhosetheboss release videos concurrently that the only logical thing to do now is to watch them both simultaneously. ;)

    S21 is amazing, I own one, upgraded from s9 and that camera was awesome but I love all the new features and control over the shot. Taking it outside at night and seeing the unseeable, it's like having night vision. 4 hours after sunset I can take a 32 second exposure shot and it looks like daytime with full colors, except there's stars in the sky!

    I'm a professional photographer and I think you did a pretty great job with this. Remember to call your blurry background a shallow depth of field. Some of the scenes you shot tested the camera well enough but always clearly enough. Shots, where there's a more steady gradient from dark to light would be better for comparing dynamic range- that bit in the alley by the newsagent would have worked. Also while some of the footage was artistic, it would be nice if more of it was! I can see you have the imagination!

    Apple did well going with a lower MP sensor. This really helps with each pixel being able to pull in more light, which leads to more detail. If you think about it, the iPhone technically acts like a "Larger" sensor because of the less dense photoreceptors. The Samsung phone, on the other hand, can really pick up detail in a well-lit area because each receptor is smaller and there would be enough light to draw enough data for the photo. I think Samsung lags at night because it combines each receptor in the sensor to be able to expose more light and create an image in a timely fashion. Otherwise, you would be sitting there waiting for the sensor to have enough data to create the image.

    I think the recent software updates have fixed some of these issues with the s21 ultra. When I got mine in January, it wasnt doing very well either, both night and zoom photos. Now I feel like they are more stable you can snap much better photos.

    I’m not a huge photographer, but I’ve found that when I’m actually out and wanting to get a specific shot (typically put hiking or if I’m traveling), there are pretty even odds on the camera that I’m going to want to use between ultra-wide, standard, and telephoto.

    First point, I agree, the iPhone's camera app was nice and simple many years ago, but it's grown stale and outdated, I want more features and modes
