Driving home tonight, I came upon the most magnificent moon rising on the Eastern Horizon. I pulled over the car at Georgia and Meade, which crests a hill, here in San Diego community of University Heights. I had read that, using the 100x zoom (optical and digital), Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra can produce impressive moon shots. Is it perfect? No. Is it fantastic coming from a device carried in the pocket? Absolutely. Wow.
The Featured Image has a little help from Adobe Photoshop Lightroom, which I used to tweak the white balance and to amp dehaze and texture settings. Vitals: f/4.9, ISO 50, 1/120 sec, 230mm (film equivalent); 6:48 p.m. PST. Composed as captured.
What’s not to like about this capability? There are lots of reasons to buy S23 Ultra; now you can see one of them.
