Let's hope the rumours for the A54 are incorrect otherwise it will follow the A53 as another downgrade

    potato4k, 21 Jul 2022Get rid of depth sensor but keep low MP macro? I can actu... moreMicro shot is very important for me, as my work required a lot of photo shot in close distance, mostly photo of product & some part numbers of the product, sometimes the details of finishing of a particular product.

    Yes Micro lens is important for me, i hope Samsung to keep it for all A series phone, or else i would need to move to other brand that offer it if i need to chance my phone.

      Get rid of depth sensor but keep low MP macro?
      I can actually understand depth sensor for portrait mode, since most of these phones don't have 2 cameras with auto focus and no telephoto (ultra wide usually have fixed focus), so depth sensor might be needed for portrait mode if the SoC/software are not good enough to simulate it.

      But macro? Who actually uses these low 5 or 2MP macro cameras? They're so useless that doing digital zoom using the regular larger MP sensor can give better result. These are the more useless cameras imo. Besides, it's been shown that one can utilize the ultra wide for macro as well. So why are we still keeping these low res macro cameras?

        They could just keep one high quality ultra wide lens & sensor. We could crop for normal 35mm FOV.



          I do care about chipsets they will be using. Do not care about camera anymore.

            They're just doing extra cost-down, nothing to do with providing reasonable cameras. They removed stabilized telephoto on A73, how can u expect from their lower-end models...

              Even if it's a midrange, if you're going to put 3 cameras, you should put wide, ultra wide, 2x or 3x telescopic cameras
              The 2MP macro cam is totally useless

                Good lord, finally. For me 2 lenses at the rear of the phone is more that enough. Even 1 is good enough for me.

                    Why can't companies just swap the 2 "useless" macro, depth or monochrome sensor for a 3x or 5x Telephoto camera??? Would be nice to have 1 main camera, 1 ultrawide and 1 telephoto camera on a mid range phone.

                      What samsung should do:

                      A14 : JN1 28mm + JN1 56mm
                      A24: imx582 26mm + JN1 56mm
                      A34 : GW1 26mm + JN1 56mm
                      A44: imx686 26mm + imx582 60mm
                      A54 : GN5 26mm + imx586 70mm
                      A74 : HP3 26mm + imx589 70mm

                      S23 : GN2 25mm + imx686 65 - 100mm
                      S23+ : same S23
                      S23 Ultra : 1" 22mm + imx686 70 - 300mm

                        Now remove and super wide.
                        Replace both for 56mm.

                          I think the A24 will use the JN1 or a successor while the A54 may use the GN5

                            5Mp UW on the A54 is weird, I think it may be actually either 8 or 12Mp

                              FINALLY

                              Depth cameras can easily be remedied by replacing them with at least a 2x telephoto cam.

                                  Most phones must have only 2 cameras, main and ultra wide
