If you have bought a good cell phone with a powerful camera, we are sure that you will also want to squeeze it to the fullest. Samsung phones of the high range are among our favorites and their cameras do not disappoint. If you like to surpass yourself, do not miss this guide to take pictures with the Samsung Galaxy S10, S10 Plus and S10e. You will get the best results, unlocking your phone's capabilities that you most likely don't know. We assure you!
Before starting, it is worth noting that there are some important differences between the S10 models, but most of these tips should be able to apply to all three phones.
The main camera of the Samsung Galaxy S10 and S10 Plus incorporates a triple lens that includes a standard 12-megapixel lens with a variable aperture of f / 1.5 to f / 2.4, a 12-megapixel telephoto lens with f / 2.4 aperture and a wide-angle lens of 16 megapixels with aperture f / 2.2. The Samsung Galaxy S10e conforms to a dual lens camera, does not carry the 12 megapixel telephoto lens. You will also find support for HDR and optical image stabilization (OIS). The OIS is present in each of the 12 megapixel lenses, and the telephoto of the S10 and S10 Plus models allows a 2x optical zoom.
All three can record 4K UHD video at up to 60 frames per second (fps), 1080p up to 240 fps and 720p up to 960 fps, what Samsung calls Super Slowmo. You will also find support for HDR10 +.
When it comes to the front camera, the Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus has a dual lens, which combines a 10 megapixel lens with f / 1.9 aperture and an 8 megapixel lens with f / 2.2 aperture to capture better depth data. The S10 and S10e have a single 10 megapixel lens. The front cameras can also record 4K quality video at a speed of up to 30 fps.
TO GET STARTED
By default, you will find the camera icon at the bottom right of the screen. If your S10 is unlocked, you can simply touch it to activate the camera. If it is locked, you can touch and drag the camera icon to the center to start the camera application.
You can also quickly press the power button twice to start the camera application regardless of whether it is locked or unlocked. This quick activation function should be activated by default, but if it is not, touch the gear icon in the upper left of the camera application to open the settings and scroll down to activate Quick Start.
When the camera application is open, you can quickly press the power button twice to switch between the main and front cameras.
THE APPLICATION OF THE CMARA
While the application of the Samsung Galaxy S10 camera is easy to use, there are many things you can do, so learning can take some time. You can scroll through the different camera modes that appear on the right or the bottom when you keep the S10 in a vertical position. It is worth noting that by sliding up or down in the horizontal view, or to the right or left vertically, the available modes will be scrolled anywhere on the screen.
You can switch between the front and rear cameras using the two square arrow icons that appear next to the large shutter button. The last photo you took appears on the other side and you can touch it to open it in the Galley application.
On the left side, or at the top of the screen, you will find a row of white icons and at the top gives the option to jump to Bixby Vision or make your own AR Emoji. You can use Bixby Vision to identify objects and buy them, try on makeup and much more. The AR Emoji application is supposed to create a cartoon version of you that will cheer up along with your facial movements and speech.
The row of icons that appears below, from left to right, are the settings, the flash (which we recommend deactivating), the timer, the aspect ratio and the wand at the end, and allow you to apply a range of 12 live filters , from black and white to hot, or activate the beauty mode, which allows you to modify your facial features.
There are a lot of modes to choose from in the camera application and there may be some you don't want to use. It is probably a good idea to reduce them and clear some of the disorder. You can deactivate anything you don't think you might need and you can always activate it again if you want. You can edit the modes that appear in the camera settings using Camera modes> Editing modes. Simply tap to remove anything you don't want to appear. You can also change the order by touching and dragging a mode up or down in the list.
HOW TO USE THE WIDE ANGLE OR TELEOBJECTIVE
By default, it will start with the objective of the main camera, but you can change it through the icons of the trees on the right. The two trees in the middle are your standard lens. Touch the three trees icon to switch to the wide angle lens. Tap the single tree icon to switch to the telephoto lens. You can also zoom in and out by placing your thumb and finger on the screen and then separating them to zoom out or bringing them together to zoom in. Vers appear a counter on the screen that will show you the zoom level you apply while doing it.
HOW TO USE THE SCENE OPTIMIZER
The Scene Optimizer uses artificial intelligence to automatically detect scenes, from glorious sunsets to adorable babies, and adjust the camera settings to try to produce the best possible picture. You can turn it on and off quickly through the blue swirl icon on the right in the camera application. You can also access it through the camera settings and tap on it to enable or disable various smart functions. We suggest leaving it on and allowing it to do its job, but you can always try it by taking the same photo with it on and off.
Like the previous Galaxy S phones, the Scene Optimizer can detect food, animals, sky, waterfront, snow, portraits, landscapes, mountains, street scenes, birds, flowers, vegetation, beaches, night scenes, backlit, scenes interiors, trees, sunrises and sunsets, waterfalls and text. The Galaxy S10 range can also detect clothes, vehicles, faces, drinks, people, cats, shoes, dogs, stages and babies.
