I recently got an A51 off of Samsung and I have been testing out their camera. When I take a photo using the rear camera, I got to say, I am impressed, it came out like a 4K image. However, when I take a video, things started going south. There are grains and noise everywhere in the video and even using the UHD 4K setting, I still get subpar 720p footage.
Now I have searched online but most of the help online is regards to why the camera sucks at taking pictures, which for me is obviously not the case because taking photographs with the A51 is satisfactory. Is there a way to make the video quality match with the camera quality? Below is such examples of camera quality I wish the video can compare to:
In the above image, you can see the cat’s face is extremly detailed and the background is slightly blurred, which makes the subject stand out a bit more, however, I have tried this exact scene with video, and I just get a blurry mess (no background blur, the lighting is uniformal and bland). I have also noticed that the metadata for both are seperate as well. Here is the camera metadata for a photo:
1.27 MB 4000x2250 F2.0 1/24s 4.60mm ISO 500 WB AUTO No flash
And here is the metadata from the video:
55.21 MB 1920x1080
Which it seems like the aperature, ISO, white balance are all missing from the video metadata. I am not a professional photographer, but I do know some settings that I can tweak to make it look better, however none of these manual settings exist in the video mode.
Why is it that using the same phone with the same cameras, taking a photo looks like a DSLR camera did it while a video looks like some old camcorder footage? Is there software (PC or mobile app) that can make me adjust the settings so that taking a video will be like taking a video?
