Samsung released Expert RAW app for Galaxy S21 Ultra

Samsung has released a new camera app in beta that allows you to use the Pro mode on the four rear cameras of the Galaxy S21 Ultra.

This means that both telephoto lenses support Pro mode, not just the main sensor and the wide-angle sensor.

A software update is expected to add this option to the default camera app. But this Korean company believes that the independent option is the best solution.

The new Expert RAW app has been launched on the Galaxy Store in South Korea. However, if you want to sideload the app, you can download the app.

It appears that the app is currently only available for the Galaxy S21 Ultra running Android 12 and One UI 4.0.

The new app overcomes the limitations of the Galaxy S21 Ultra i.e. Pro mode for the main camera app only applies to two of the four rear cameras. (The main camera has 108MP and the ultra-wide-angle camera has 12MP. But there is no 10MP zoom or 3x zoom.)

By entering Pro mode when using the Galaxy S21 Ultra's advanced zoom level. You can access full shutter controls, adjust ISO and exposure levels, view real-time histograms, and adjust highlights, shadows, and saturation levels.

The app's announcement said that it also supports HDR and can capture and save images in 16-bit linear RAW JPEG and DNG formats.

DNG files contain JPEG multi-frame HDR processing. However, this increases the flexibility of 16-bit RAM files.

You can own the files your way. You don't have to worry about losing the great dynamic range, detail, and image clarity of the Galaxy S21 Ultra.

It appears that Adobe Lightroom integration is included. You can also open RAW photos directly in the photo editing application using the key on the camera. You can also load configuration files for smoother editing.

You need to use an app like Lightroom to edit the DNG files. This is because classic photo apps like Google Photos eliminate the need for HDR and other post-processing.
