Samsung has restarted the megapixel war by revealing some new camera features for its 200MP image sensor – and one standout trick that could give the Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra bragging rights over the iPhone 15 Pro, for video at least.  

The new feature, called ISOCELL Zoom Anyplace, uses the considerable resolution of Samsung’s 200MP sensor and the grunt of Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 to let you simultaneously shoot a wide field of view with a zoomed-in tracking shot of a person or subject.

Samsung is keen to stress that this feature isn’t just digitally cropping into your image – instead, it uses what Samsung calls “in-sensor zoom” to maintain video resolution and detail. Like Google’s Super Res Zoom technique, the cropped area of the sensor is remosaiced (or reinterpreted), letting you capture smaller sections of your scene in 4K resolution.

Combine this with automatic subject tracking, powered by Qualcomm’s AI engine, and you have a potentially powerful video mode that could give you alternative shots and angles, without needing to sacrifice your wider composition.
