Samsung has released a new version of the Expert RAW camera app for the Galaxy S 10 series one. The company has also launched a brand new app, aptly named Camera Assistant, which lets you manually control some of the automatic camera functions.
Some basic stuff like disabling the video recording option in photo mode (this usually happens accidentally if you hold down the shutter button for too long). You can also set the number of photos to take when using the timer function – 1, 3, 5 or 7.
Some are simple, but have a big impact on the final image. For example, Camera Assistant lets you disable automatic HDR. You can also turn on soften picture if you think the camera app is applying too much sharpening.

and more – Faster Shutter As the name suggests, it speeds up your shooting time so you can Take 7 photos in one second.
Another option allows you to disable automatic lens switching , that is, it gives you manual control over which lens to use. Typically, you set the zoom, and the phone decides which camera is best for that zoom in a given lighting condition (for example, it might use the main camera instead of the telephoto). With Assistant, you can make decisions.
Finally, there are two features that are not very useful for casual users, but can be invaluable for professionals. You can enable clean preview for HDMI displays (ie the phone will only output the camera feed, no UI overlay on top), you can set the camera timeout (to 1, 2, 5 or 005 minutes before the camera goes to sleep).
Well, it’s time to talk about the new Expert RAW release. It now has an astrophotography mode for photographing the night sky, constellations and nebulae. This mode will capture several minutes of images and use multi-frame processing that takes into account the motion of celestial bodies. The app also maps constellations and other celestial objects of interest, so you can take a photo of the Big Dipper even if you don’t know where it is in the night sky.
Another new mode is called Multiple Exposure. This allows you to take multiple photos and combine them with different overlay modes. It’s a creative technique that dates back to the days of old movies to create interesting images, but digital versions allow for better control over the final product.
