SAMSUNG GALAXY S20 5G: CAN IT SHOOT BETTER PHOTOS THAN A DSLR CAMERA?

Hello everyone,



My life revolves around photos! Literally... in my mind, I see places, details, people in a single capture. I know, call me CRAZY, but I can't help it!!! I always have to remind myself to let these Polaroids stop rolling. 

However, most of the time I'm so inspired and always up to capturing the beauty of life as it goes. Through photography, I got into blogging about fashion. I felt it was time to let my photographer, also my sister, Daniela, take charge as I saw myself being in front of the camera. My favorite way of expressing myself through my ability to put outfits together. It's fun, always vibrant and so me! 💖     


My sister and I share this love for photography. Seeing the world in its most raw forms with its deep edges or soft brushstrokes. It's an art, that has always created a powerful bond between us. I enjoy having her help my vision come to life as she's become one talented photographer. 

Since her love for taking photos has grown, Daniela is always looking to improve her equipment and find the perfect camera. I think every creative soul can relate! Two weeks ago, she bought the Samsung Galaxy S20 5G. What better way to experiment with something new? We decided to test the camera on this phone and see if it can be used instead of her heavy duty digital one. For those of you wondering, my sister has used Canon Rebel EOS T7i for the past few years. 


Let this photo adventure begin!!! 











     
Many of you will agree that there are a lot of benefits of using your phone to take photos. One major factor is that your phone is always with you and it's light to carry around, unlike your DSLR camera, which you might even need to pack in your equipment bag with different lenses depending on the type of scene, mood, and style of photography you're going for that day. 

One thing that impressed us both about the Samsung S20 is the quality of the photos. The pixels resolution impressed us. It's not as good as a DSLR, for obvious reasons, but it's pretty darn close, especially if the photos you take on your phone will be primarily used for social media. This has been the biggest reason why we have stayed away from shooting with the phone up until now. From the images above, you can see the detail and sharpness. 

Something else that is worth mentioning is the creativity that this phone allows you to shoot at. From wide-angle to macro zoom options you can really "play with your subject" and let your vision come to live. The zoom easily allows you to capture the pretty detail of raindrops dancing on a flower or the mysterious texture of the flower itself. It's something we want to experiment more of since these kind of details thrill us. 

My sister and I definitely plan on continuing to use the Samsung S20 for photo-shoots because it really is the best quality we have seen in photos coming from a phone. We're going to give the Canon camera a nice break and maybe use it only for very special projects. How about you?...What do you use to take photos? If you own the Samsung S20, what are your impressions of it? I would love to know!!! 📱

I hope this post was interesting to those of you who love photography as much as we do. We can't wait to share with you lots more tips and tricks as we continue to experiment with this phone. Until then, keep doing what you love the MOST! Talk soon!!! 💕

  4. I rarely take pictures of a telephone - in my opinion I take better pictures with a camera 🙂
    However, your photos are beautiful 😍
    my phone is Samsung but a different model and as I mentioned - I don't like taking photos with it

  14. These are lovely photos, your sister is very talented! I used to like the camera on my old phone but when it broke I couldn't afford to replace it so I have an older model now, it's not as good, haha! But I still manage to take a lot of photos of the boys on it, as I don't always have my big camera out in the back yard or walking around the neighbourhood.

    Hope you are having a great week :)

  18. Hey Radi, how you doing?! Hope you're staying safe and sound, as well as your beloved ones.

    I loved that you talked a bit about photography, this is so important and specially if you have a personal style blog, actually I love to see that you have improved a lot during all this time that I've been following Fashion Radi! Daniela is definitely a good photographer and the good thing is that she's always looking for something new to try :)

    Of course equipment is crucial and nothing will beat a good camera, but it is so good that many phones are great tools and they're able to handle the hard work.

    I like everything, but I specially loved the pictures of details!

    All the best and stay safe,

  35. Radi - your photos are always some of the best-composed and most beautiful I've seen in a blog. They're composed with such creativity. And it's wonderful to see that the smartphone cameras are coming up in quality. I have an iPhone 6S and it's *meh* as far as photo quality. I use a Nikon D3500 for my photos and I have a very, very long way to go before I have it figured out :/

  39. I have a DSLR but I agree, it is pretty heavy to carry around. I have to always have a plan before I take it out, instead of always having it with me and taking photos when the mood strikes. I never really use my phone apart from to upload to Instagram, maybe I should when I upgrade it though.

  42. Same here, I always see the world in pictures, I love taking pics to safe special moments. To capture my daily memories I usually use my phone, but for my blogposts I always use my Canon. But with the years and growing technology the difference between the quality ist getting smaller and smaller. I love all these images, thanks for sharing. Have a wonderful new week, love x S.Mirli
