Why Every Tech Review is WRONG about Samsung Galaxy S9's Camera [REC2020]

Follow by Email
There's something seriously wrong with the camera on the Samsung Galaxy S9 and no one is talking about it. PART 2: https://youtu.be/tXz_rP30DPY HOW TO FIX S9 VIDEOS: https://youtu.be/-ai0hjLPFcI UPDATE - 10 Months Later Just tested Android 9.0 and I can confirm that the new One UI Camera app no longer records in the Rec2020 color space even with HDR turned on. SPECIAL THANKS Thanks for your support and if you have any suggestions or would like to help us produce more videos, please visit: https://vtudio.com/a/?support COLOR PROFILE 2020 (9:1:9) According to Wikipedia it seems that the Rec 2020 color profile is for HDR video[1], so it seems that it might be more an Apple not rendering HDR correctly, than a Samsung tagging the video incorrectly as the S9 does indeed support 4K HDR.

Comments from Youtube

emmanuel awonaike : I think you should send your findings to a reputable tech site like GSMArena, don't send it to The Verge ,BGR or PhoneArena they'll try to spin to favour Apple no matter what. Also send this to other Youtubers to crosscheck. Contact EverythingApplePro to see if he can reproduce this phenomenon.

Erica Griffin : BRIALLIANT, YOU NOTICED IT! This was an issue last year as well but no one noticed and final cut for me was representing it correctly. Now this year final cut is saying rec 2020 after the update. It's a meta data tag error of some kind. I only have it on Mac. I will reach out to Samsung AGAIN.

Jamie Kriesher : Great video. I was pretty surprised to see how many YouTube reviews didn't even question those colors, especially when sites like Display Mate list each color profile of the S9 to be the most accurate they've seen yet.

Colin Winter : it's called REDit foray reason

KingJoker 910 : This issue is a mac issue I've had same issue on my macbook but not my alienware so

Matthew Henry : Why tfffffffff doesn't this have more views?? This guy exposes the the truth and no one cares, smh.

Erica Griffin : How did you delete the color profile inside final cut or did you use something else? Anywhere else I look it says it's rec709

Madeleine Maria Weber : You can simply run it through Adobe Encoder (H.264 - high quality HD) and it will overwrite the colour profil. . Not sure though how it will look on the samsung if I transfer it back to the device.

drsnowmon : Excellent video from a technical stand point

James Barrera : Are you in a laundromat? 😉

Jamie Kriesher : One other thing. Has anyone confirmed if switching the display color mode changes the color gamut defaults for the s9's video? I know that some profiles are for supporting the 10 bit color range where others are set for the standard 8 bit.

Bill Wang : Nice video, what are your thoughts on pixel cameras?

Hex Northman : *Legend*

Bogdan : LUL apple exposed for newest propaganda. iToddlers will defend and move on.

Mike : You're amazing for this dude! Keep it up brother

Kiergard : Thanks for this information.

CilvēksArKameru : it's not the problem with mac. It's problem with samsung camera. When you shoot in 4k all is orange. When you shoot in QHD or FHD all is ok. Even in gsm arena review i saw the same problem, but no mention of it. Why noboty notices that?

Martin Kulik : i have samsung s9 plus for 2 days and it has been terrible, i am returning it or getting rid of it. APPLE IPHONE ALL THE WAY! SAMSUNG IS RUBBISH! TERRIBLE VIDEOS!

Awesome Bryner : Nah, just another Apple fan trying to persuade others to move over to iPhone.

SuperNova : She is hotter red

merman101 : If you don't know whether it's an Apple bug or a Samsung bug, you can't blame Samsung

Tio Dave : The Pixel camera is my #1 pick for camera.

cubbz5 : Samsung camera are making wanna switch it not true to life I hate it

CandaÅŸ Kurtay : I'm more than glad someone noticed this "super strange" issue.. Well I'm a guy who has been using Apple starting with the 1st gen. iPhone to iPhone 7 Plus. When they introduced the X, I decided to give a chance to Sammy because of that notch thing.. As a photo/videographer and color grader; "the camera features" are the most important specs. for me. S9+ is a VERY BIG DISAPPOINTMENT when it comes to camera. Believe me it has got nothing to do with Mac's color profile. This Sammy thing sees everything in red! Photos, videos are all the same. I'm taking selfies and I look like devil. Video is (color wise) totally rubbish for me!!.. Everything is oversharpened, vibrant and hell they are over over over saturated.
