The S5 has two cameras, a 16 megapixels back side camera and a 2.1 MP front facing camera. Its back side camera lens has a maximum F2.2 aperture so it can take beautiful photographs even in low-light situations. It also shoots 3840x2160 4K videos at 30 fps, and slow motion videos in 1280x720 (HD) at 120 frames per second. To complete the camera, it also has lots of cool characteristics like auto-focus, flash, digital image stabilization, fast burst mode, HDR mode, face detection shooting and geo tagging.
