Samsung has partnered with Discovery to record a short nature documentary called “Eye to Eye With a Tiger” using a Galaxy S21 Ultra. The documentary follows wildlife photographer Yashas Narayan as he heads out into Ranthambore National Park to capture footage of the beautiful but endangered animal.
This project is for a good cause, it will raise awareness of deforestation, poaching and overhunting of the tigers’ prey that is causing their population to dwindle. This project will also help support Project CAT (Conserving Acres for Tigers), which was started by WWF and Discovery. The project currently spans six million acres of protected tiger habitat across India, Bhutan and Russia.
Narayan is joined by award-winning director Vikram Singh. The couple also took photos and videos of other animals inside the park and got the best out of the S21 Ultra’s camera along the way.
