The Galaxy S22 Ultra is a powerful phone with excellent cameras. It does, however, take a few tricks to figure out how to get the most out of them and take great photos every time. By following these easy tips you can snap pictures that are better than ever.
Tips To Capture Better Pictures With Your Samsung Galaxy S22 Phone
There are a few things you can do to take better pictures with your Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra. First, make sure you have the highest photo settings turned on. This will ensure that the camera is taking pictures in the highest quality possible. You can find the settings in the camera app under ‘Settings’ :
- Scene optimizer : ON
- Shot suggestions : ON
- Scan QR codes : ON/OFF (your choice)
- Swipe Shutter button to : Take burst photos/Create GIF (your choice)
- Picture formats : Do not change the default settings
- Save selfies as previewed : ON (flipping off)
- Selfie colour tone : Check yourself
- Video stabilization : ON
- Advanced recording options -> Zoom-in mic : ON; keep rest as default
- Tracking auto-focus : ON
- Grid lines : ON
- Location tags : ON (probably a better idea to organize)
- Shooting methods -> Voice commands : ON
There are no other settings to change in the settings menu. Now, in the top menu, beside the settings gear icon:
- Flash : OFF
- Timer : OFF
- Size : 3:4 (108MP) for normal photos, 3:4 for 100x zoom (like we need for moon photography)
Try to avoid using the flash whenever possible. The flash can often wash out pictures and make them look less realistic. If you must use the flash, try to use it sparingly and only when necessary. Make use of the various features the camera offers. The Galaxy S22 Ultra has some great features, such as HDR mode and panorama mode. These can help you take even better pictures/videos.
S22 Ultra offers a few nifty features, such as remastering image option in Gallery and a standard photo editor. Another feature not related to photography is the measurement tool. Go to More > AR Zone > Quick Measure.
You will get the option “Detail Enhancer” when you are at 3:4 108MP mode and zooming. This is a helpful feature to get better photos even after digital zoom. If you try to scan a document lying on a flat surface, you’ll get an on-screen bubble to level.
Use the Pro Mode
If you want to take better pictures with your Galaxy S22 Ultra, then you should make use of the Pro Mode. This mode gives you manual control over the various settings of your camera, such as the ISO, shutter speed, and exposure. By manually adjusting these settings, you can take much better pictures than you would be able to otherwise. You can read our article on exposure triangle.
Use a tripod
If you want to take truly great pictures with your Galaxy S22, then you need to use a tripod. A tripod will allow you to keep your camera completely still while you are taking the picture, which is essential for getting sharp and clear photos.
Use a remote shutter i.e. S Pen or Voice Command
Another great way to take better pictures with your Galaxy S22 is to use the S Pen as a remote shutter. This will allow you to take pictures without having to press the button on your phone, which can cause shake and blurriness.
Shoot in RAW
If you want to take your photography to the next level, then you should consider shooting in RAW format. RAW files are uncompressed and contain all of the data that your camera sensor captures. This means that they provide much more flexibility. Download the Samsung Expert RAW app from the Galaxy store :
There is a horizon level, a feature that is missing from the stock camera. You can edit the photos in Adobe Lightroom.
Taking Pictures in Low Light
One way to take better pictures with your Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra is to use the Night Mode feature. This mode is designed for taking pictures in low light. It will help to reduce noise and blur in your pictures.
To use Night Mode, open the Camera app and tap on the Night Mode icon. Then, point the camera at your subject and tap the shutter button. The camera will take a series of pictures and then combine them into one final image.
Another tip for taking better pictures in low light is to use a tripod and Pro mode (or Expert RAW app). A tripod will help to keep your camera steady, which will reduce blur in your pictures.
Overall, Night Mode and a tripod are both great ways to take better pictures in low light. Using these tips will help you get the best results from your Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra.
Use Auto Mode. Simply zoom to 60-70x and you will be able to view the typical form of the moon. Around 90x, you will get a usable quality image of the moon. By using a tripod and S Pen, you can get quite great photos of the moon.
A good tripod and a Face Tracking Gimbal can change photography and videography. Rest Samsung has shipped with S22 Ultra – the S Pen. The S Pen can be used to follow you but without a gimbal, it is of limited use. Remember that S22 Ultra is quite heavy and fragile.
With these tips in mind, you should be able to take better pictures with your Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra. Experiment with different settings and see what works best for you. And don’t forget to have fun!
