Who’s clearer? Private detective measures 100x zoom feature of Galaxy S20 Ultra

Space Zoom is one of the killer features on the Galaxy S20 Ultra, providing 100x digital zoom capability. The power of the feature has been shown in many images from digital bloggers and consumers, so how do experienced private investigators view the feature? Take a look at the video below.

The video, compiled by The Wall Street Journal, tells the story of Michael McKeever, a private investigator with decades of experience, on the S20 Ultra. In the video, the Galaxy S20 Ultra is compared to Apple’s flagship iPhone 11 Pro Max, Sony HDR-CX190 and Nikon P100.

The first test was conducted from about 50 feet and found that the S20 Ultra performed better than the iPhone. Of course, once the maximum zoom is reached, the picture starts to get a little blurry. To be clear, if you want to get a clear, clear zoom from a distance, the smartphone still seems a bit hard compared to a dedicated stand-alone camera.
