We might have become accustomed to the “new normal”, but it is the “old normal” that everyone craves. No one could have guessed that the dreams of people around the world would metamorphose into the same set of things in just a year. Everything that we used to take for granted, like going on a shopping spree, relaxing in the park, going to the movies, has now become a distant dream. Since the pandemic hit, all everyone wishes for is this uncertainty to end so we can once again attend social gatherings, hug our loved ones, or feel the sand beneath our feet! These are our epic dreams of 2021.

Realising that our common dreams are what now bind us together, Samsung has captured 21 epic dreams of people around the world in one master shot using the incredible 108MP Camera of the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G. And of course, with the #EpicDreamsOf21 campaign, the company is not only showcasing the creativity possible with the device but also inspiring us to create our own stories.

What is #EpicDreamsOf21

With the #EpicDreamsOf21 campaign, Samsung has captured the simple pleasures of life that we used to take for granted earlier. Though, in the current scheme of things, the same simple pleasures have turned into dreams that we hope to fulfill in the Epic Dreams of 21. The master shot comprises 21 epic shots representing our dreams amid this lockdown, and the photography powerhouse — Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G — was entrusted with the task. With this campaign, the company put the phone’s 108MP camera capability to the test and showcased it for everyone to see. Samsung created a surreal world depicting simple delights of life that we have been dreaming about and captured a one-of-a-kind masterpiece.

Ultra-high-res images with the 108MP camera of Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G

The Pro-grade 108MP ISOCELL HM3 image sensor of the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G allows us to capture so much detail in a single shot that one can pinch in and crop, crop, and crop some more to get multiple shots… each as mesmerizing as the original.

For #EpicDreamsOf21, Samsung visualised an epic shot containing 21 dreams. The idea was to capture an epic master-shot #withGalaxy S21 Ultra 5G that can be cropped out to share individual dreams without loss of detail or quality. This is only possible with a camera that can capture high-resolution images that don’t distort when you zoom in to crop out specific parts, and the Samsung smartphone with its 108MP camera was the perfect choice for the task.

A camera that’s a pro photographer’s dream

There’s no one better than a photographer to testify about the camera capabilities of Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G. Ace photographer Avani Rai, who has already received multiple recognitions for her rich body of work, was entrusted with the task of capturing the 108MP image which we know as the #EpicDreamsOf21. Let’s hear what she had to say about the camera prowess of Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G and how it bought this masterpiece to life.

Other Camera Features of Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G

While the #EpicDreamsOf21 campaign focused on capturing a master shot that can be cropped to reveal 21 individual dream shots, this is not the only camera feature that the Samsung Galaxy S21 Series delivers to its users. There are several other exceptional features that you can use to unleash your creativity.

Director’s View

The Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G comes with a Director’s View feature that lets you unleash the budding videographer hidden inside. With this feature, you can switch seamlessly between the camera’s three lenses when recording a video. That means you can switch between a closeup shot and an ultra-wide shot with a smooth effortless transition. Within Director’s View, Samsung has built-in three different vlogging modes — Split View, Picture-in-Picture, and Single View — to help you frame the videos as you want.

8K Video Snap

One of the most fun and revolutionary camera features of the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G is the 8K Video Snap. Most of us know that this premium flagship can capture videos with up to 8K cinematic resolution. That’s four times as many pixels as the 4K video that most smartphones can record. But did you know that you can pull out high-resolution images directly from the 8K video you captured? That’s right, you can get images of 33MP resolution right from a video! Samsung calls this feature 8K Video Snap, and it removes the hurdle of choosing between shooting a video or photo, as with this, you can do both.

Portrait mode

The Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G also brings an excellent Portrait mode feature. Not only does it allow you to see the live preview of your portrait shots, it even allows you to adjust the level of background blur on the fly. You also get different kinds of blur effects that can help make your portrait shots stand out. For example, you can use the high-key mono blur effect to take a black and white portrait shot or use the colour point effect, which retains the subject’s colours while turning the background to black and white.
