Samsung Galaxy S4 : Camera Shooting Modes

Samsung Galaxy S4 has a number of new camera shooting modes, which I admit are pretty neat.

So many camera shooting features. Question is, which one should you use in any one situation?

And that is a decision you have to make before you take a shot. Say, you use Best Shot mode and took multiple shots, but there are unwanted background people that you wanted to remove. You can't. You have to reshoot using Eraser Shot mode. Say, you use Eraser Shot mode, and you liked to make it into an Animated Photo. Not possible. Say, you use Animated Photo mode, and you liked to keep a still image in full resolution. Not possible, you can only save as GIF.

In comparison. HTC One does not impose that restriction. After you capture a Zoe, which is a 3-second footage of 20 4-megapixel images, you can choose to process the Zoe into either a (in Samsung Galaxy S4 terms) a Drama Shot, Eraser Shot, or Best Face shot.

So, what would you do in real life? I would only shoot in Auto mode most of the time. Samsung has got some awesome shoot modes, but it needs to allow the user to do post-processing into multiple effects, to make use of the software innovation that Samsung has developed.

My favourite mode is the Dual Shot mode, and I would buy the Samsung Galaxy S4 because of this revolutionary feature that is only possible with a blazing multi-core processor. HTC One's got Zoe, the Galaxy S4's got Dual Shot.
