Auto Lens Switching

Auto lens switching is a feature that helps you to switch between different lenses according to the scene. This feature works exactly like the camera switch feature in the Pro model of iPhones, where it changes to a different lens based on the screen detected by the camera viewfinder.

Video Recording in Photo Mode

Enabling this feature allows you to record videos by holding down the shutter button while in photo mode. Generally, if you hold the shutter key on the Samsung Camera app, it captures multiple pictures in burst mode.

Faster Shutter Speed

If you think the camera shutter speed is low on your Samsung smartphone, then this feature will come in handy. However, there is a drawback to this feature, i.e., the quality of the images will drop a little bit. If you are comfortable with this reduced quality, then you can increase the shutter speed of your Samsung device.

Clean Preview on HDMI displays

This feature is for those who capture professional videos using Samsung smartphones and connect to a bigger display via HDMI. You can enable this to get a better view of the viewfinder without the icons and settings blocking the screen.
