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.

The hidden cost of food delivery

More posts by this contributor What Studying Students Teaches Us About Great Apps I’ll admit it: When it comes to food, I’m lazy. There are dozens of great dining options within a few blocks of my home, yet I still end up ordering food through delivery apps four or five times per week. With the growing coronavirus pandemic closing restaurants and consumers self-isolating, it is likely we will see a spike in food delivery much like the 20% jump China reported during the peak of its crisis. With the food delivery sector rocketing toward a projected $365 billion by the end of the decade, I’m clearly not the only one turning to delivery apps even before the pandemic hit. Thanks to technology (and VC funding) we can get a ri

Technics EAH-AZ60 review: Contending in stunning fashion

Technics serves notice that everyone should notice these earbuds. Technics ventured into the wireless earbuds category to go after the big dogs in the race. Think of the likes of Sony, Bose, and Sennheiser on sound quality, as well as the best you can find on design and functionality. It's a combination that comes at a price, but if done right, it gets easier to justify spending more. That's the case Technics makes with its EAH-Z60 earbuds. Its newest pair aims to take what the company has done in the past and make it even better. The results are easy to like and are significant enough to consider them as serious contenders.

iOS 14 Favorites Widget: How to Make a Replacement With Shortcuts

In iOS 14 , Apple overhauled widgets and introduced an option for adding ‌widgets‌ to the Home Screen , but in the process, a well-loved Favorites widget that existed in iOS 13 was removed. The Favorites widget let users set certain contacts and contact methods as favorites that were easily accessible, so you could, for example, add a favorite option for messaging Eric or calling Dan, with those actions executed with a tap. Why the Favorites widget was removed is a mystery and it could be a simple oversight with Apple planning to reintroduce it later, but for now, those who relied on the widget can recreate its functionality with Shortcuts. It takes some effort, but it may be worth the time investment if you often relied on your Favorites. Creating a Favorites Shortcut Making a shortcut that replicates the behavior of the Favorites widget isn't too tough, but if you want multiple favorite options, you'll need to create a separate shortcut for each one in the Shortcuts
