If you are considering purchasing Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra look no further than the Featured Image—or, rather, the original digital file, which weighs in at 51MB and monstrous 16320 x 12240 pixels. Click at your own risk, and if you do be sure to zoom in and regard the detail—all the while remembering that this moment comes from a smartphone, not a dedicated camera.
The classic Ford, which I passed parked in an alley, today, is my first shot taken at 200 megapixels. You know, the feature some people regard as a gimmick, given the device’s tiny image sensor. Call me skeptical, too, until randomly stopping to test the capability. The photo is presented as captured. No cropping. No editing. If you aren’t amazed, I surely am.
The S23 Ultra’s standard default is 3:4 at 12MP. But 50MP and 200MP are available at the tap of a finger. Vitals: f/1.7, ISO 10, 1/350 sec, 23mm (film equivalent). Approximate location: San Diego neighborhood of University Heights.
