Hi all. The developers have got back to us with an update on this.
Just a bit of background explanation on the why and how this happened first:
The division of the camera into separate Photo and Video modes in Pie is intended for quicker launch/access of either of those modes. Modes like” Pro”, “Panorama”, and “Food” have always been primarily photo mode rather than video mode based in their development – which is why the video recording function didn't made it into any of them by default. In addition, although they did consider additional Video modes, in the end, the developers were reluctant to unnecessarily over-complicate the usability of Video mode in Pie.
However, the developers are wanting to improve the Video mode going forwards – so, following your feedback here are considering adding a “Pro Mode” to Video mode in the future. No further details on timescale, or whether this will be on existing or future devices at this time though. Any further news we hear on this one, we'll let you know.
Say "Hello!" to the Community in The Introduce Yourself Thread.
Thank you for letting us know.
Anyone who has actually used their phone in real life would quickly see the benefit of this feature being brought back.
Try taking pictures of your kids playing and then something happens where you want to record, switching to the video mode is painfully slow in comparison.
They took a month to get us answer like this? Its pretty safe to say now we will never see pro video mode. I have 1.000 EURO worth phone without manual control of video recording. Thank you very much Samsung. This is my last purchase from you. Very disappointed user.
@brodyv @what do you thank for? For what Samsung took month to tell :"No further details on timescale". Reality - they will change nothing, and soon our phones of updating feet. Maybe Samsung will make the PRO Video Mode in Galaxy S11.Again 1000$. Maybe it will work before the first up-dating.
