    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.

      On a walk today, I had to take a photo of this view!

      Also, spotted this little guy in a hedge, I think it was about 20x zoom, this is with the May update, with a UK Exynos. Quite impressed with the detail.

      To contrast with our friend's previous post with the nice nature and rolling hills, one end of afternoon view of HK, and a night one (wide angle lens).
      You can imagine the rats and cochroaches having a stroll there :)

      The colours are quite accurate, but I do not like too much how details are lost in the lighted area. However that blue in the sky is correct, and I really like the contrast of that with the pink.
      The overview in daytime is OK, HDR did not destroy the colours too hard... I would have liked the clouds to be a bit better in regard to the part where the sun pierces them, but I suppose it's actually pretty good that we do get details in them.
      Again, I do like the pictures I can catch with this phone!

      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.
