How High Resolution Photography in Consumer Goods Changes History

Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge with high resolution photography power

The Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge features the best display yet available in a Samsung product. It’s coming out in May and the legion of the Samsung converted will be after one of the day it drops. It seems like a no-brainer, but why is an improved display important to us? And how will the improvement of continually improving color and resolution standards in consumer technology change the way we see the world? The answers may not be so standard after all.

Let’s look at these questions with photography in mind. Mobile devices were first “cell phones”, then “camera phones”. This second iteration is important, because it was the first successful synthesis of two very different devices, at least at this level. Suddenly, millions of people had decent cameras in their pockets. They started documenting the minutiae of their lives, moments they might not recorded a decade before, given the finite nature and cost of film. Even early digital cameras weren’t cut out for the job of taking pictures of any and every thing. You had the size and weight of the camera to contend with, as well as limited early storage.

Devices like the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge serve to give a complete history of the human race, as it is lived by normal people. As these devices are adopted in the developing world, this visual record will become much more universal.

Due to the high quality resolution possible in Samsung’s newest offering, devices like these are going to draw a fine line in the sand between histories. Pre-history will be the time before cameras and digital technology was available to all. Modern history will be times we can look back on in fine detail. Even pictures taken 20 years ago show their age. They seem like they were taken in another era, all the more different for the changes in clothing and hair styles. Today, devices like the new Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge will set the new standard for the way normal people see themselves and create their own personal histories.

Interesting take on the cameras in our phones I hand’t thought about. It indeed is amazing how the devices we carry around with us have changed the way our lives (and everyone’s around us) are documented. I am continually blown away by the quality of the cameras in our phones. One of the best pictures I took on a trip to Europe last year as with my Samsung Galaxy Note II. Not the high quality camera I was lugging around. And what’s crazy is I just saw it, snapped it really quick, and moved on. Yet it turned out to be gorgeous.

Kind of makes you wonder what we’ll have in 20 years that will absolutely blow away the technology we think is so amazing today.

Absolutely true Damian. There’s high level of changes and development in the technologies powering our smartphones – it is no longer like it used to be, and fortunately for our upcoming generations, the trend will continue to climb higher. Maybe in next 10-20 years, we will be having a bedbug-like-camera that will snap us at interface without having to carry it all around on our phone. I’m just thinking differently though 🙂

But there’s nothing impossible.

Thanks for coming around here. You have an amazing blog there.

Hi Olawale,

This is a an interesting post, thanks for sharing.

I am researching vlogging cameras and wonder whether the quality on smartphones is good enough for YouTube. What do you think? Thanks!
