With a few new capabilities, Samsung has updated its Expert RAW camera app. First, the corporation is enabling the storage of personalized settings. Custom shooting parameters can be added to presets, which can then be saved for subsequent easy access.
Since Expert RAW is all about giving you control over how you want to capture a scene, this is a useful feature. The software allows you to fine-tune a number of factors, like shutter speed, exposure, ISO, and more, to achieve the ideal outcome. With the new feature, your personalized presets will always be available and ready to use. Simply launch the camera app and begin taking pictures.
The choice of image format is the second new feature that Samsung has introduced for Expert RAW today. Currently, the software can save photos in both JPEG and RAW formats. On your device, you might not always want to keep two copies of the same image. You can now select the default format for photographs that were taken using Expert RAW as a result. However, the option to currently save in both formats will remain available.

GALAXY S20 ULTRA EXPERT RAW, NOTE 20 ULTRA, AND FOLD 2 DELAYED The Galaxy S20 Ultra, Galaxy Note 20 Ultra, and Galaxy Z Fold 2 will all receive the Expert RAW app in the first half of 2022, according to a February announcement from Samsung. Sadly, the app still hasn’t reached these three phones as we move into the second half of the year. According to the corporation, said users would have to wait until September.
Samsung also disclosed that the Galaxy S20 Ultras telephoto lens is incompatible with Expert RAW. According to reports, it was unable to produce Bayer RAW, the foundation for the apps’ Computational RAW. The main camera and the ultrawide lens are the only cameras that the app will support. For the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra and the Galaxy Z Fold 2, the firm made no mention of these restrictions.
