Filmmaker and National Geographic Explorer, Eshika Fyzee traveled to the stunning Kashmir valley to capture the elusive wildlife species. With best-in-class camera features of the flagship Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G like Space Zoom, Eshika clicked stunning shots of the Himalayan Black Bear capturing details from far away.
“At Samsung, we are constantly looking for new ways to engage with our consumers and provide them with innovations that enable them to do more. We are excited to unveil another exciting chapter of #UncoverTheEpic featuring Himalayan species in their natural habitat. Together with National Geographic Traveller India, we aim to showcase the capabilities of pro-grade 108MP lens of Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G that can transform the way we shoot and capture visuals,” said Sumit Walia, Senior Director, Samsung India.
As part of this campaign, National Geographic Explorer and Wildlife filmmaker Eshika Fyzee set off on an adventure across the Kashmir valley and the stunning Himalayan Mountains. Eshika explored the valley to capture the Himalayan Black Bear along with other species. Using the incredible camera capabilities of the flagship Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G, she captured the magnificent species while spreading the message that one does not always need a heavy telephoto lens or bulky camera equipment to document wildlife and natural history.
“I knew I was setting myself up for a huge challenge when I decided to capture an animal like the elusive Himalayan black bear on a smartphone. These are extremely shy animals and seeing the animal in itself – let alone photographing one – is a huge task in a vast terrain like the Himalayas. I was blown away by the Space Zoom feature on Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G because I could keep a distance and still get crisp shots of the black bear all by using a smartphone that fits in my pocket,” said Eshika Fyzee, National Geographic Explorer and Filmmaker.
