Single Take; The Unsung Hero.

Feb 27, 2022

Phone launch events and press conferences these days seem to be 80% camera and 20% specs, build, design etc. The cameras are always the star of the show. but there is more to taking pictures than just lenses and processing.

Every manufacturer seems to have it's own standout feature on the camera. Whether it's Night Sight, Cinematic mode, or Zoom. For me, there is a clear winner when it comes to the best camera feature. And that is Single Take on Samsung devices.

For those that aren't aware of what it is or what it does, which apparently is a lot of people, including many average Samsung Users, Single Take is a mode in the camera where when you press the shutter button it records video for 15 seconds. It will then select the best shots as well as apply filters and video effects. Creating unique memories and making sure you don't miss the moment. It uses all three lenses too (ultra wide, wide, telephoto) so you don't have to mess about selecting the right lense, lining up the shot, potentially missing the moment.

As a pet owner and Dad of 3 I rely heavily on Single Take to capture key moments and memories whilst still remaining present. I don't worry about how I'm capturing the image. I let the AI take care of that. And for the most part, it does a great job.

Unfortunately, Single Take has fallen victim to Samsung's terrible marketing. So there are Samsung's users blissfully unaware that this even exists. But for me, it's my favourite camera feature on any phone I've used. Ever.

Now for some dog spam. Enjoy.
