Testing the Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom's 16-megapixel shooter (pictures)
Samsung's 16-megapixel Galaxy S4 Zoom shoots like a standalone camera, and with good reason. The smartphone has all the right equipment.
Samsung's Galaxy S4 Zoom has the right camera moves
With its 10x zoom lens and easy-to-operate camera modes, the Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom is one heck of a camera. But it also makes for the lumpiest smartphone I've ever seen.
This gallery represents some of the best photos we took using this phone. While not every shot was successful, this should give you an idea of the kind of quality you can expect. Unless otherwise specified, these photos have been taken with automatic settings. You'll find a deeper camera comparison with the Nokia Lumia 1020 here.
I set the focus on Kent German's face when zooming in from across a crowded room at CNET's ping pong tournament finals (really!). It took several attempts to get him in focus. The Zoom kept latching onto the figures to his left.
