Galaxy S9 vs Galaxy S8: Cameras

The biggest change in 2018 for the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ is all about the camera, or cameras. That's because Samsung's bringing something completely new to the table.  

Samsung just introduced an all-new variable aperture camera on these phones. What that means is the aperture can change from f/1.5 to f/2.4 apertures for the best possible photo in any situation, speed, or lighting. 

Just like the human eye changes at night to capture more light so we're not blind, and changes outdoors so the bright sun doesn't overpower everything, the Galaxy S9 camera does the same. The lens actually gets bigger or smaller, based on the light, which is known as the aperture.

Basically, allowing the camera to take faster photos, and capture more light and less background noise or hand-movement all at the same time. As a comparison, one of the best smartphone cameras is the Galaxy S8, with an f/1.7 aperture camera. Essentially when there isn't enough light it will switch to f/1.5 like indoors or at night. Then, during regular photography moments switch back to f/2.4 for a wider depth of field, and improved crispy clear photos. 

The camera knows what it needs when it needs it, and changes. It's a mechanical moving camera, inside a smartphone. Samsung states that these moving parts are very durable, and isn't worried about them breaking if dropped or anything of that nature. 

It's all pretty technical, but just know the camera can change on the fly to take the best photo. In a world where all other phone cameras are stuck in a single operation mode. Additionally, Samsung has a sweet new 960 FPS slow-motion mode, where the phone automatically makes stunning slow-mo videos with sound, perfect for sharing on social media. 

We'll have to test out the Galaxy S9 and see how it compares to the Pixel 2 XL.
