On August 20, Samsung Electronics announced that it will publish a photo essay by IU, titled “Twenty-year-old IU’s Emotional Picture Play,” which she created with the camera on a Galaxy S III phone. IU took the pictures in collaboration with the famous photographer Kim Han Jun. The essay also tells how to use the Galaxy S III camera to take pictures like professional photographers.
The essay will be distributed for free in Samsung Electronics stores from August 23. In celebration of publishing the essay, it will be distributed to 500 people on a first-come-first-served basis from August 22 at the Galaxy Zone in the COEX Mall.
The photo essay will also be published as a mobile application called IU’s S III Picture Play. Along with the photo essay, such content as wallpapers of IU and picture-taking with IUe will also be provided.
A spokesperson for Samsung Electronics says, “We created this photo essay in order for our customers to enjoy the Galaxy S III camera’s superior functions in a way that’s more fun and emotional.”
The eight-million-pixel camera in the Galaxy S III provides such functions as Zero Shutter Lag, which immediately takes pictures without waiting time, Burst Shot, which takes twenty pictures in a row, and Best Photo, which automatically selects good-quality pictures.
