Galaxy S22 gets astrophotography and multi-exposure camera features!

One of the main talking points of the Galaxy S22 at launch was Samsung’s new ‘nightography’ features. The company claimed that it has vastly improved the low-light performance of its phones compared to previous-generation devices, so users can expect better images and videos in low-light conditions.

Still, the phones lack astrophotography camera features found on some competing high-end smartphones, including the Pixel range. And the company is now solving the problem with its updated Expert RAW camera app.

Samsung’s updated Expert RAW camera app brings astrophotography to Galaxy S22

Samsung has announced that it is bringing astrophotography-related features to the Galaxy S22’s camera with its new Expert RAW and Camera Assistant apps. With the Astrophoto function of the Expert RAW app, night photography enthusiasts can take clear and bright photos of stars, constellations and activities in the dark sky.

The new Sky Guide feature allows users to pinpoint the location of constellations, groups of stars and nebulae. The camera’s advanced AI algorithms then use multi-segmentation and multi-frame processing to create shots that look like they were shot with much more expensive and sophisticated camera equipment.

The new app also offers the Multi-Exposure feature, which allows users to take multiple shots of the same scene and then overlay them, resulting in eye-catching images. Astrophoto and Multi-Exposure functions can be accessed through the Special Photo section of the newer version of the Expert RAW camera app.

Camera Assistant app brings more advanced settings to stock camera app

A few days ago, Samsung released the Camera Assistant app for the Galaxy S22. The company formally announced the app today. It provides the ability to enable or disable certain features in the stock camera app. For example, you can disable Auto HDR, a feature that was available in the stock camera app in older Galaxy phones, but was later removed.

The app also allows you to disable automatic lens switching. In certain situations, even if you switch to 3x or 10x zoom, the phone uses the primary sensor and zooms in digitally. With the Camera Assistant app, you can force the camera to use the original zoom level and stop using digital zoom.

The app also allows you to change the number of images you want the camera app to capture while using the timer. You can also soften details in an image, record videos by long-pressing the shutter button in photo mode, and preview the camera viewfinder on an HDMI-connected monitor without the camera menu and buttons.

The app also allows you to take photos faster with the Faster Shutton feature. This is especially useful when capturing images of fast-moving subjects such as babies, pets, sports and vehicles. Enabling this feature may take a hit on image quality (because fewer frames are captured), but you’ll get a non-blurred, sharp image.
