Quick launch and Shortcut

Travel near or far with a zoom ring
Optical Zoom Control
The zoom control re-imagined. Optical zoom control replaces traditional dials and buttons with smooth, easy-to-operate digital controls. Professional-quality accuracy and unprecedented ease of use are just a quick twist of the zoom ring away, making it easy to capture wide-angle shots and create tight-focus effects.
Capture close-ups, even from far away
10x Optical Zoom
Bigger doesn’t always mean better. The small-size/big-performance Galaxy S4 zoom is equipped with 10x optical zoom to let you capture clear images and beautiful, accurate color, even from far away. And thanks to the Galaxy S4 zoom’s professional-quality optics and precise zoom-ring adjustment, you can take eye-popping close-ups, too—all without having to lug around heavy camera gear.
Better low-light performance and motion capture
16M BSI CMOS Sensor
Advanced sensor technology makes your pictures come alive. The super-fast, super-sensitive 16-megapixel BSI (back side–illuminated) CMOS sensor needs less light for proper exposure and quicker focus than conventional sensors. So even if a moment happens in the dimmest lighting conditions, your photos will capture everything.
It remains perfectly still, even when you don’t
OIS (Optical Image Stabilization)
Shooting in a hurry doesn’t have to mean shooting blurry. The Galaxy S4 zoom’s Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) system gives images crisp focus, even if you’re not perfectly still. Don’t miss a shot worrying about the right conditions. Click with confidence and create photos and video that come out sharp and clear—even in low-light situations, when zooming in for a shot, or while you’re on the move.
