The Samsung Galaxy S5 smartphone is capable to make movies in good quality. The highest 4k resolution is absolutely novelty in this device.  On top of that you can use a lot of record modes. I decided to describe only dual camera movies and 4k video.

Dual camera movies

The S5 smartphone is one of few devices, where you can make dual camera movies. The Dual Camera mode works the same like in photos. You can choose 9 options to create your movie by front and rear camera in the same time. For further details see the link below.

When I was creating this movie I kept my phone in vertical position. Finally I made view in vertical mode. Fortunately you are able to rotate this kind of video. The best way to do it is using the Samsung Galaxy S5 video options. How to use it, read here. If you downloaded your video on the computer you need to use a proper software like Windows Movie Maker.

Unfortunately rotated video has lower quality  (see below) than movie recorded directly by phone so it is better to keep your phone horizontally and make you videos in normal, horizontal mode.

On the first part of this movie you can enjoy mirror-like view created by rear camera and normal view in the small field. Second part is different, the rear camera shows view in the small field an the front camera a main part of the video. Besides you can see how to change the small field size in the same time when you are making a video. The film below shows you more options with Galaxy S5’s dual camera.

Samsung Galaxy S5 is able to create photos and videos up to 1m underwater. You can see the underwater movie on the link below.

4K video

This is modern and very useful video, which lets you make movies in the best resolution (Ultra Dynamic Range). 4k movies from Samsung Galaxy looks fine during the day and in a good  light.

Unfortunately you will not receive a good video quality during the night (link below).

During my flight to United Kingdom I was trying to capture some details, but I could hardly see a couple of spotlights above dutch metropolitan aeas.
When the plane was landing was slightly better, but still not enough good .

At the conclusion I can say that using Galaxy S5’s 4K video in poor-lit places or areas is pointless.
