Samsung outs a stunning short film, shot entirely with the Galaxy S5
Samsung's phone cameras are usually among the very best ones available, and the one in the Galaxy S5 cemented this impression. Equipped with a new, 16 MP unit with a relatively large, 1 / 2.6” sensor with a native aspect ratio of 16:9, and an aperture of F2.2, the S5 can be used as an excellent camcorder, too, despite the lack of optical image stabilization.

The ISOCELL camera can record 4K footage with 30fps, and supports real-time HDR video, so it consistently scored high in out camera comparisons done with the S5 as a chief participant. As if to prove our favorable impressions, Samsung posted the following 1080p HDR video, shot entirely with the Galaxy S5 in Trieste, Italy. What do you think, is the S5 missing OIS tech, or does the footage look great enough without it?
