To date, the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G remains the pinnacle of the brand’s technological prowess with chart-topping performance and a powerful camera array capable of 8K video and breathtakingly beautiful photography. What better way to put it to the test than to put it in the hands of an auteur extraordinaire like Malaysian film director Jack Neo who crafted a featurette filmed completely with the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G.
“We had to do some proper studying on how this smartphone’s camera system works as this was our first time doing something like this. But to our pleasant surprise, we were able to capture the smallest details in darkness while balancing the highlights. What came out in the end were very sharp, crisp, and dynamic images,” said Neo, director of Close Shave.
Close Shave is a playful and entertaining short film about a first-jobber struggling to adapt to the new norm of working from home. According to Neo, the inspiration for this film is to encourage viewers that life can still be interesting, even though we are stuck at home. “A lot of things can happen in a small room – and that’s the theme of this film,” he added. “The Galaxy S21 has taught me that just because an equipment is small, that doesn’t mean that quality has to be compromised,” said Neo.

The Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G features a primary 108 megapixel F/1.8 camera that offers OIS and PDAF while a secondary 12 megapixel F/2.2 ultra wide angle camera is on hand for scenery and large group shots.

Combined, the rear camera array lets you take shots at up to 108MP, shots from 0.6x all the way to a 100X Space Zoom which is a hybrid of both digital and optical zoom for super long distance shots.
