Ever take an awesome video and wish you could pull a still image straight from it? It’s never fun to scrub through that super cool video and have to settle for a blurry screenshot. Well, with 8K Video Snap, you can take crisp images out of high-resolution videos to memorialize moments in photo form to hang on your gallery wall, set your lock screen or put on your WFH desk. 

Over the last 13 months, more Canadians have explored their creativity through video and photography, including daily vlogging of everyday moments, cooking videos or even short films. Harnessing your inner content creator is easier than ever with Director’s View and Vlogger’s View on the Galaxy S21 and S21+ 5G.

Our smartphones are tools that help us capture and share our world, and while that might feature a whole lot of sourdough attempts and mask selfies for the moment, our need to stay connected isn’t going anywhere – and as we get back to experiencing the things we love, we’ll want to make sure every moment is preserved in high-res.

Looking to flex your skills and up your content game? Or maybe you’re a content creator and feeling stuck in a creative rut? Here are a few tips and tricks on how you can make every moment a memory worth sharing with the powerful Galaxy S21 5G and Galaxy S21+ 5G.

Choose candid over posed

The perfect photo moment can pass by in a blink of an eye. With 8K Video, you can capture the entire moment in stunning quality and turn your best candid moments into high-res stills with 8K Video Snap, so you can say goodbye to stuffy, posed photos.  

Be adventurous

Don’t be afraid to try out the different lenses and camera angles because you’ll be surprised how your photos will turn out when you change your perspective. Bend down, lay on the ground, or even flip your phone upside down with the Ultra-Wide lens, it will give you a vertically stretched effect and you can capture it all without feeling cramped. 

Take photos in bursts 

Single Take takes the guesswork out of the equation when you’re trying to decide between filters, photo or video. Take a series of epic photos and videos over 15 seconds with just a single press of the button2 and from there, take your pick to find your favourite. 

Use grid mode

Lining up the shot to help avoid lopsided photos is easy with grid mode, which displays the field with a grid overlay so you can follow the rule of thirds. 

Don’t over-edit 

Taking the perfect shot takes time, why waste more on editing? Thanks to improved AI technology, Portrait mode on Samsung Galaxy S21 and S21+ 5G phones provides new natural lighting and background effects so you can take creative share-worthy portrait photos like a pro.
