Is The Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra Faking Its Detailed Moon Photos?

Samsung’s Galaxy S21 Ultra has been getting a lot of attention for its very detailed moon photos thanks to its 100x ‘space zoom’ feature. While some are impressed, some are also skeptical as to the authenticity of the photos taken with the phone. Comparing the phone’s performance with the iPhone 12 Pro Max, the Galaxy S21 Ultra got the details of the moon’s surface, while the iPhone produced a blown-out orb. The stark difference in quality makes people question the authenticity of the photos taken with the Samsung model. Input magazine’s Raymond Wong investigates whether or not Samsung was faking the 100x Moon photos from the S21 Ultra.

I have often heard people arguing that since everyone has a cell phone with a camera now that we should be flooded with high quality UFO photos. This always makes me laugh, and this article illustrates why. Cell phone cameras, until very recently, take horrible pictures of objects in the sky at any reasonable distance. This new Samsung may be better at it, but for most of us if you took a picture of a flying saucer that was clear as day to your own eyes with your phone, you'd end up with a washed out white shape with no definition whatsoever, just like the Iphone shot of the moon.

How is the S21 Ultra’s 100x zoom taking a photo that bests even a $4,800 camera setup?

Easy the user fails at using the camera. My photo using the same camera setup seems much better.
