GALAXY S21 Ultra 5G

GALAXY S21 Ultra 5G

Since the beginning of 2021 when Samsung launched the new Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G, I was fortunate enough to be amongst the first to own this device. During the past three months, I became familiar with the device and its features. I thought I would share my experiences and let you know which are my favourite features and why you should consider purchasing a Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G, if you are in the market for a new smartphone. Let’s now go through the features that make the Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G the ultimate smartphone.

 

3 things I love about the S Pen

1. It turns notes into text with just one tap.

2. The “Smart Select” allows me to select a specific part from any image and save this as a JPG!

3. The S Pen allows for an incredible degree of precision in your work. Especially if you are someone like me who likes to edit photos in the phone, it makes your image editing process quicker and easier.

 

8K Video SNAP

8K Video Snap lets you grab your favorite moment from an 8K video and convert it into an ultra-high resolution photo. It is particularly useful if you make Instagram Reels, cause you can use the high resolution photo as your cover for the Reel!

A little HOW TO guide for you

Step1: Find an epic location and start filming a video.

Step 2: After filming the 8K video, go to gallery and play the video!

Step 3: Click on the “Snap” icon at the top left to get high resolution photos of scenes you want to save as an image.

 

SINGLE TAKE

Can’t decide between taking a photo or a video? With the “Single Take” feature of the Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G you can do both!

The “Single Take” shooting mode lets you shoot several photos and videos simultaneously with JUST ONE CLICK!

A little HOW TO guide for you: Press the shutter button one time and wait from 5 to 15 seconds!

With just one click, you get several options to choose from: Filtered videos, Filtered photos, Speed effect clips, Boomerang, Wide/cropped shots, Highlight videos.

 

NIGHT MODE

I would describe myself as more like a natural light, day time photographer. I usually don’t take photos after sunset time. The “Advanced Night mode” feature of my Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G made me curious about the outcome, so I found an interesting low-light photo opportunity in my little town and started shooting photos.

You have 4 different lenses to choose from: Ultra wide, wide, Tele 1, Tele 2!

I’ve been pretty impressed by the image quality of the Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G.

What makes the “Advanced Night mode” feature of the Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G so amazing are the following characteristics: 12 MP, AI technology, Faster Bright Night sensor and enhanced noise reduction.

 

DIRECTOR’S VIEW

The “Director’s View” mode allows you to record from both front and back cameras at the same time & choose between three angles without losing any action. What an amazing tool not only for Youtubers, but for anyone who enjoy sharing happy moments with friends and family!

GALAXY S21 Ultra 5G

The Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G is my main smartphone for 2021. It’s the device I use everyday, therefore most of my photos are taken with this. All the features mentioned in this blog post are really easy and fun to use and you can see me using them if you follow along on Instagram. I can’t wait to bring my Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G to places I’ve never been to before, create iconic photos and film 8K cinematic videos that we all enjoy to watch.

Spring 2021

What a blessing to be spending Spring 2021 in this beautiful little town, Chania in Crete island! I bought this bouquet of flowers from the local market which takes place every Saturday here. There is only one person who sells flowers in the market. All the other sellers offer fruits and vegetables. Seems like buying flowers is not a habit for Greek people, as it is for the Parisian. So I bought them in a quite reasonable price. 9 bouquets for 15 euro! Well, if they are so affordable, I can buy them every week! I took some pictures of them, and then I put them in the vase. They will definitely last for one week!

New friend

New friendI have a new friend and this blog post is exactly dedicated to her. Ria is a pastry chef based in Chania. For the moment, she is my private cook in Chania, but you can book her too during your holidays.

The first time I met her, she brought to me a traditional Greek sesame seed bread ring. The second time we met, she brought me a crunchy chocolate hazelnut spread.  

As time went by, we developed our own code of communication which goes down to this agreement: she cook, I photograph!

So, the third time she visited me, she made the best Cretan brunch which was consisted of: staka dip with eggs, brioche with poached eggs and avocado, and bruschette. 

The fourth time she visited me, she cooked squid ink tagliatelle with shrimp, ouzo and tomato sauce. For dessert we had a traditional Greek Halva, that one that you see in the photo above.

My new friend and her delicious recipes do good to my soul and mind..but whether I can say the same for my body figure…I am not sure!

La Canée

La Canée

There is a story behind every photo of mine.

When we took this photo, right behind me, there was a guy who was speaking in French on the phone. It was just him and us there, no one else. We actually stopped at this location because I found the light on the sea fascinating. I was curious to see what kind of photos this light could give us.

So we took a bunch of photos and filmed a few videos. We also hoped that we didn’t bother the Frenchman with our little photo shooting….He was laying on a beach sun bed and he was enjoying the sunshine.

He is the reason why I give the title ‘La Canée’  to this blog post, because La Canée means Chania in French. Without him knowing this, I dedicate this blog post to him. Most probably he might never get to know this…
