Galaxy Note 8 has optical image stabilization in both rear camerasSamsung's Galaxy Note 8 is the first phone to feature two 12-megapixel rear cameras with optical image stabilization on both the wide-angle and telephoto lenses.
Today, we don't just use our cameras for special occasions. We use them to capture and share the moments we live everyday. And many of these moments happen at night. That's why we introduced the dual pixel sensor so you could capture vivid photos and videos in low light. But, what's the point of an awesome camera if you miss the perfect shot? Like when your friend finally gets airborne. That's why we introduced Quick Launch, so you can access your camera at a moments notice. And remember the days when you were afraid of taking pictures at the beach, by the pool, or in the rain for fear of getting your phone wet? Well, that's why we made out devices water-resistant. So you don't have to worry. The Note 8 has two separate back cameras that work together to capture your experiences like never before. One camera has wide-angle lens for capturing big scenes. And the other has a tele lens with 2x optical zoom so you can get closer to your subject without sacrificing image quality. But here's the coolest part. The Note 8 is the first smartphone ever to have optical image stabilization in both cameras. Just look at the difference. And that's not all. It's not just photos that benefit from Dual I.S. It's videos too. [BLANK_AUDIO] Live focus gives you the freedom to decide how much your subject stands out by adjusting the blur and focus of the background in real time. What's going on with you, Van, how you doing today? Good, awesome Kelly, we're gonna work on your profile pic, it's gonna be epic. Make sure you get my good side. All right, awesome. I'm gonna launch my camera, turn on live focus mode. And now since this picture is all about Kelly, I'm gonna turn up the effect to maximum. All right, let's see what we've got. That looks great you want and come see the photo let's check that out. Now he is sexy that is in your profile pic Kelly I like that everyone give it up to Kelly. [APPLAUSE] in live focus mode you can adjust the background blur even after you've taken the picture. So if I wanna dial it down, I can. But since this is Kelly's profile pic, I'm gonna dial it back up. [BLANK_AUDIO] In live focus mode the camera's simultaneously take two pictures. So not only do you have Kelly's new portrait, But you have all the beautiful detail behind it, which includes all of you. [APPLAUSE] Kelly's new profile pic, all of you.
