Samsung offers a Pro mode for the telephoto lens, but there is one catch.

The camera in the Galaxy S21 Ultra is great. However, its owners have not yet been able to use the Pro mode in the case of the telephoto lens. Now Samsung has finally added support for it, although there is a catch.

Pro mode is finally available for the Galaxy S21 Ultra telephoto lens, but you’ll need a separate app.

The vast majority of users simply grab their smartphone, launch the camera app, take a picture, and put the device back in their pocket. However, there is a group that spends a lot of time tweaking all the parameters on their own to get the desired, often impressive effect.

In the case of the Galaxy S21 Ultra, Pro mode is only available in the camera app for the main lens and ultra wide-angle lens – not for the telephoto lens (unfortunately for its owners). However, this only changes to those long as Samsung has announced the release of Expert RAW applications.

Yes, unfortunately yes – Pro mode has not been added to the system camera app. For people who know how individual parameters affect the final effect, this should not be a problem – after all, this is usually done by users who know their business and know what effect they want to achieve.

The Expert RAW app (in beta) can be downloaded from the Galaxy Store (at least for the time being in South Korea). It is only available for the Galaxy S21 Ultra model with One UI 4 installed. However, this is not an obstacle, because it has become available to users all over the world, including Poland.

Samsung says the Expert RAW app is prepared to reduce noise, increase sharpness and detail, and increase dynamic range to capture more information from both dark and bright areas in a single photo.

Users can, among other things, set the ISO, shutter speed, focus point, white balance and view the histogram. In addition, the app provides HDR support and the ability to save files in lossless JPEG and 16-bit RAW formats. Samsung has also prepared profiles for Lightroom .

These features are available for every camera – main, ultra wide and both telephoto lenses (3x and 10x).
