Normally I wouldn’t even try shooting video of Sydney’s annual light festival – Vivid – with a smartphone but given the upgraded camera on the Samsung S10 5G I thought I’d give it a lash.
Usually they look fine on a small screen but get it on a laptop or a 65 inch TV and the video is rubbish.
The final outcome here is pretty good considering how noisy smartphones are in low light – including the S10 5G.
In this case I had to do a bit of work in FCPX to reduce the noise and smooth the motion but I think it’s pretty cool.
The video speed has been increased 550%.
Let me know what you think?
I’ll be shooting more tonight with other phones and I’ll put them up against my low light champion Sony a9.
