Didn't see any Galaxy S4 official photos thread, so figured I'd start one up. One of the main features that lured me from my iPhone 5 to the S4 was the camera and all of its modes. Here are two I took yesterday that I really like.

Show yours!

Interesting choice of pic to show off your Macro mode. Surely there was something better to take a picture of, lol.

Smart scroll and air gesture are pretty useless in every day real world scenarios. Adding features into the camera however is not, the camera is also perhaps one of if not the S4's biggest strength.

I actually prefer the 16:9 widescreen at 8MP than the 4:3 at 13MP.. unless I'm taking a pic from a distance and need to do some serious cropping

The macro mode continues to impress me. And it's not even a macro mode, it's simply the ability of the S4's camera to focus so well when just an inch or two from objects. Photo below untouched (except for cropping)

That is quality, and also I think that the S4's large screen will be great for viewing and showing your pictures.

I really like how the capability of today's devices (except for the new iPod Touch) is so advanced from just a few years ago. Kudos to both Samsung and Apple for this.

Not a photo, but a video showing off the S4's slow motion feature. I wish the resolution was better but the best it does is 88x450, and then YouTube drops that down to 360p. Unfortunately, the phone limits you to the same resolution regardless if you pick the 1/2 speed, 1/4 speed or 1/8 speed. Also, audio gets cut, as expected. This video is on the slowest setting.

Found a bug in stock 4:3 on the S4 Camera. It appears that touch to focus doesn't work with HDR enabled. Seems to be a problem with all 4:3 roms including the official one on on the official GE. It seems that 4.3 brought more bugs to the table than enhancements.

Yeah I know Inch beach and strand well (in fact I was cycling there on Saturday last - stopped off just off the beach to have my fresh piece of apple pie and ice-cream, and then cycled home). I'm closer to Banna & Ballyhegue Beach, just as popular as Inch. But yeah the benefits of being self employed - I can take walks and make most of the fine weather at any stage :D I walk on the beach at least 3 times a day :)
