didn't know the sensor was that large. well, if it's coupled by a software as good as the s4's it should be able to beat the z1/z2 and 1520/icon cameras.
I don't believe any of the pictures shown in the video is actually shot by Galaxy S5. Taking in account samsung's reputation, I should not be.

i want to see real world sample images before i applaud or critisize this new camera tech, all to often there are buzz words thrown around, i find that personally most modern cameras are great in day but suck at night or low light (with a few exceptions) so fingers crossed this new tech works well in the afformentioned situations, im still not sure about the s5 though, i am holding out for something different and fresh after 4 years with galaxies.
It is so sad to see manufacturers trying to scam people into buying "the next best thing" in camera-phone department with "technologies" like Ultrapixel and ISOCell, but don't even bother to give us a shutter key. I tried taking picture with Note 2, but couldn't focus properly even after 5 attempts. For this reason mostly I'll never buy a smartphone other than Nokia or Sony.
Large sensor??? 1/2.6 is no way larger. Nokia 808 has 1/1.2 Nokia n8 has 1/1.83. Sony has 1/2.3 which can be considered medium... So the sgs5 sirely has below average sized sensor in current generation
No OIS means this will produce some shaky pictures with no shutter delay on and the sensor size isn't big. Don't expect it to perform better than the Lumia 1020.
Oh boy the irony, Samsung reinventing the hot water, after using Sony BSI camera modules for ages.
That must hurt a lot of Sammy fans, pitty them.
Anonymous, 12 Mar 2014I really like Samsung behaviour recently, they've been timid focusing on their own innovation(... moreThey have copied the sensor from Sony technology, yes the have their is no innovation from samsung only copy and give it another name and pass.
I'm interested in this speed focus thing. No point having a phone cam if you're missing the moment. Tried the 1020 the other day - managed to grow a beard before the camera opened up! If I wanted professional quality photos I'd buy a real digital camera.
Reasonably good quality and speed of opening & usage are my priorities :)
'Rear-end' illumination?! Filth!! ;)
Just can"t wait to see the Review of the Galaxy S5,an the Camera section review
neaaahhh...too much hype for a tiny sensor, but 16 ISOpixels will be better than 4 Ultra ones?:)))))
Big words and lots of market speak. The proof will be in the actual stills. With an ISO range of 100-800 it's hilariously poor equipped to be of any significance against the low light might of better snappers like PV808 and Lumia 1020.
1/2.6" is a large?? Since when? Sony has 1/2.3" and that's not considered exceptional either. Think PV808 if you want 'exceptional' in a phone.
