Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra and Beastgrip Gear

February 25, 2023

We're excited to announce that we have received the new Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra, and it's an exceptional device.

Following Apple's lead, Samsung decided to keep the design of their new device similar to the previous generation S22 Ultra, which is a significant plus. The wide variety in shapes and sizes of Android devices, along with the position of camera modules, makes designing camera accessories challenging. However, Apple's consistent design approach allows for reliable performance with all our gear, due to shared mechanical design and camera performance. It's great to see that Samsung has also adopted this approach this year, ensuring that the Beastgrip Pro rig and Pro Series lenses work seamlessly with the new Galaxy S23 Ultra.

Our team has carried out extensive testing with our lenses and is currently working on showcasing their exceptional performance in an upcoming video. Although the new Galaxy S23 Ultra appears almost identical to its predecessor, the most significant changes are found internally, which have resulted in improved device performance. As camera enthusiasts, we have noticed a considerable improvement in the video capabilities of the new model. Videos recorded with the Galaxy S23 Ultra display well-balanced colors, excellent dynamic range, and minimal noise in midtones and shadows when capturing high-dynamic scenes. Additionally, the main camera module has a short focus distance, allowing it to focus with our 1.7X Tele lens just a few inches away from the object, producing a beautiful shallow depth of field and bokeh. Furthermore, the short focus distance makes the Galaxy S23 Ultra fully compatible with our DOF Adapter MK2. Although the MK2 version is currently sold out, we are excited about our upcoming MK3 version and will share more information as soon as possible.

To summarize, we are impressed with the new Galaxy S23 Ultra and cannot wait to share our update and video with you. If you want to elevate your Galaxy S23 Ultra's photography and videography game, our gear is an excellent choice. Stay tuned for more updates!

Samsung just recently announced the release of their new flagship Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra, and we can not be excited enough.

New Galaxy is coming with the biggest camera upgrades in years. A more powerful processor chip, an impressive 200-megapixel main camera sensor, better low-light performance, and a new Expert Raw feature are some of its biggest improvements in the camera department. The jump from 108 megapixels to 200 megapixels in the main camera, roughly double the resolution of its predecessor, is definitely a big upgrade that makes this new smartphone even more suited for phoneography. The other three rear cameras remain unchanged. 12-megapixel ultrawide, 3x telephoto, and 10x telephoto, both with 10-megapixel sensors

Heavily oriented towards those who like filming and taking pictures with their smartphone, the new Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra will be another great release from the company and will definitely win a lot of hearts.

Samsung’s recently released teaser for their upcoming short film “Behold,” directed by Ridley Scoot, and another teaser for a short film called ”Faith,” directed by Na Hong-jin, is actually proof of what their new Galaxy S23 Ultra is capable of. As can be seen in the behind-the-scenes video, some parts of this new “Behold” short film were filmed using our Beastgrip Pro Rig, and we are extremely excited about it!

We are waiting for the new Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra to arrive and can not wait to test it out with Beastgrip gear. We can confidently say it will work great with our gear, just like its predecessor, based on what we see and available sizing and other characteristics provided online.

However, once we receive Galaxy S23 Ultra, we will test all of our lenses and share all the results with you, please stay tuned!
