    Maybe a really silly question, but when you say with sharpening, is that post photo or using Pro mode?
    Thanks

    By "with sharpening" I mean that when closing up to object with S21U, there is notification that sharpening is enabled, and you can disable it by clicking icon in left down corner. Maybe in actual english version there is different word used than "sharpening" but I was translating.

    I'll edit previous post to avoid confusion in the future

    Sorry, I wasn't being critical with what you were saying, just clarifying as I was interested 👍

    I assume you are referring to the Focus Enhancer.

    Thanks

    My pictures from yesterday with a cloudy weather.

    Everything in Auto.

    Results are pretty good I don't use the Pro Mode anymore, most of the time.

    I know that could be better but that's finally sufficient.

      The brighter unedited photo looks a bit better buddy...
      Haha really?
      I think I made the pic too dark then

      This unedited one looks good. 10x, night mode, handheld. Exynos.

      Latest update. The bird is 10x camera.

      The green monster was shot with 108mp and cropped in a bit. Also light was poor and the beast was moving towards the phone so maybe blurry? 😅

      Cat was where it is forbidden for her to climb but was there against the law, looking at me like she gives no F's...

      Playing around more with the 10x camera. It can actually achieve pretty close to macro focus! Some pics taken with GCam at 10x minimum focal distance.

      At this point the aircrafts were about at 800-1000 feet altitude

      Now a much better macro pic of my eye. There was a bright light source in front of me, so I had to take exposure down, improve details, etc in snapseed. Anyway, awesome details. Macro camera is amazing!

      I don't play with post processing much these days, but AD Photoshop/LR on the mobile is surprisingly good, this is going to be printed to acrylic plate at somepoint.

      The dynamic range of the S21U really is quite something, even jpgs allows for post processing to the exact temperature 'look' you want.

      The depth and general tone of pictures the S21 U is able to capture really did use to be only possible on 'proper' camera systems, even the x10 lens produces half decent efforts in post.

      Add in the fact the entire work flow is possible on the phone, so no peeking on the back of a LCD camera screen, no faff with uploading to a laptop, no LR library to manage, no need to worry about backup due to the cloud, am pretty sure I can also send these file direct to Photobox/Snapfish or similar for large format printing all from the phone.......

      From a purely a photography point of view, the S21 U is outstanding, there is no other way to put it.
