You can finally use Galaxy S21 Ultra's telephoto camera in Pro Mode

Samsung says the app will soon be available for Galaxy S21 Plus and Tab S5e users as well.

What you need to know

  • Samsung has released a new camera app called "Expert RAW."
  • The update is currently limited to Galaxy S21 Ultra users in South Korea.
  • It isn't clear how long it will take for the app to become available for other flagship Galaxy phones.

Samsung has rolled out a new camera app that finally allows the Galaxy S21 Ultra's telephoto cameras to be used in Pro mode. As reported by TizenHelp, the new Expert RAW app is now available to download via the Galaxy Store in South Korea.

The app is currently in beta and compatible only with Galaxy S21 Ultra devices running Android 12. Samsung says it plans to release the app to the Galaxy S21 Plus, Galaxy Tab S5e, and a few other flagship Galaxy phones in the near future.

Like the Pro mode in the default Camera app available on the best Samsung phones, the Expert RAW app gives users controls over various settings such as the ISO, shutter speed, exposure, white balance, and focus. You can also make adjustments to highlights, shadows, contrast, tint, and saturation. Additionally, the app gives users the option to view the histogram to control image exposure better.

As its name suggests, the app lets you save photos in multi-frame-based 16-bit DNG RAW format, which you can later edit in the Adobe Lightroom app. Samsung also says that RAW images captured using Expert RAW offer better detail and dynamic range than the stock camera app.

Samsung is likely to expand the app's availability to other countries in the coming weeks. If you don't want to wait, you can download and install the Expert RAW APK shared online by tipster FrontTron.
