A Night of Stars and Technology

With the arrival of the Galaxy S20 and Samsung Galaxy Z Flip,  the aforementioned celebrities and personalities revealed how the smartphone helps them find a new way of capturing photos and videos.

As an in-demand photographer, BJ has shot many of the country’s most beautiful faces and covers of magazines in the Philippines and abroad.

The Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra serves as a worthy companion for the illustrious photographer. For him, it changed how users see the world. The smartphone comes with an Ultra-Resolution Quad Camera, which includes the following:

  • 108MP Wide Angle
  • 48MP Telephoto
  • 12MP Ultra-Wide
  • Depth Vision lenses
  • …among other features.

The 108MP camera offers millions of more pixels that show off even the tiniest details.

Even I am surprised at the level of clarity that my smartphone’s camera provides. I have compared photos taken using the 108MP lens and my professional gear, and the ones shot with my smartphone can match with the best of them,” Pascual says.

Apart from the leap forward in terms of resolution, the photographer also enjoys the other features of the device’s cameras. Space Zoom allows him to hone in on subjects up to 100 times. Bright Night lets Pascual shoot even in low light conditions without sacrificing sharpness and color accuracy of his photos.

Movie-Grade Video Creation

Magbanua is the most-cited name in visual storytelling. Acknowledged as the same-day edit king, the videographer is known for producing wedding videos that can double as feature films. His professionalism, creative eye, and agile workflow have made him the videographer on every couple’s wishlist.

The Galaxy S20 Ultra has revolutionized mobile videography with 8K Video resolution, now the highest on a smartphone. Each footage is sharp and clear, even at the size of a cinema screen.

I have added the Galaxy S20 Ultra to my gear set because of its 8K capabilities. What I like about using the smartphone is that it’s light yet capable of capturing the best moments of a wedding in ultra-high resolution,” shares Magbanua.

Another feature that the videographer uses is the 8K Video Snap, which grabs photos from recorded footage. Each screenshot maintains its crisp resolution, a function Magbanua uses when he observes a picturesque moment in his videos.

Both Pascual and Magbanua benefit from the Galaxy S20 Ultra’s stunning performance. The smartphone is equipped with powerful RAM and an enhanced processor for a lag-free experience. This combination of features allows both creators to multitask in their respective fields. The Galaxy S20 Ultra is also furnished with a 5,000 mAh battery that makes the device last longer on a single charge.

After Miss Universe, I am encouraged to seize every opportunity to further push myself. I’m glad to have the Galaxy Z Flip to inspire me to be bolder in everything I do,” says Gray.
