Wide Angle Pro mode

I love the Galaxy Note 10+ cameras, but I hate that in Pro mode there is only control for the main camera, without any possibilities for the other two cameras. Would it be possible in the near future to be able to change cameras in Pro mode and be able to obtain RAW / DNG files with the Super Wide Angle, Wide Angle and Telephoto?
Thank you!

Yes... This is my main complain about this phone also. 

 

Raw support for the wide angle lens with pro control. 

 

I want to make a long exposure with low iso and DNG control with this phone. And i cant.

 

Thank you for this Samsung, you are almost there.

I mean, that's the thing. And as far as I know, all three sensors are the same, so it would take just a software update to add DNG support for Wide Angle and x2 Zoom.

I'm second to that. It's "REALLY" annoying to have DNG/RAW support for the main camera only. Please Samsung, add the DNG/RAW support for all the cameras.

S10 have the same problem. Unless this is resolved, i will continue to use my S7 edge. Alternatively, will get a Huawei P30 pro as they allows raw in all 3 cameras if my S7 edge spoils

Add me to the list of folks who would really appreciate this... "fix".

I would not call this an added "feature" because it simply does not make sense why it wasn't implemented in the 1st place :winking-face:

Same here... I often use pro-mode and it is a shame to not have ultra-wide available in this mode.

It just makes no sense at all.

 

Samsung softwares sucks donkey balls to be honest... They work on new features (that will not work either) and forget to update their own apps. So huge difference compared with other brands esp. iOS. 

I learnt upon time to not expect anything from their softwares update, this phone is no exception but sometimes soon i'll probably get tired of it.

 

Before advertizing new features for the next mobiles, FIX already the base of your own softwares for people who paid premium for this.

Maybe they will fix this with Android 10 :hand-with-index-and-middle-fingers-crossed:

Hey Samsung, please add additional lens usage for the Pro camera mode.  It's not very "Pro" to only be able to use one lens.  😉

@DulyNoted I heard that they will make it available on the S11 / S20 series, so who knows maybe after they are released they will give it to us, poor people with a Note 10, too.

I doubt it will ever happen. I've seen people (including myself) looking for this since the Note 8, with lots of people asking for it in the forums, but I don't think Samsung actually reads this stuff or really cares. I would go for a P30 Pro in a heartbeat if I could get one here in the states.

Hey all,

The interesting thing is on my Note 8 I could select std camera mode and choose one of the two camera options... then when switching to pro mode it would stay on the lens selected... It's definitely just a software thing cos it did previously work. On my Note 9 it worked on an early version but after an update (I can't recall which) it stopped working. Completely pointless without being able to use pro mode on all lenses... it's kinda a no brainer which makes me wonder why it's not available...

Please enable this feature ASAP!!!!

Thanks!

Sorry, but Pro mode is for amateurs.

If you want professional photos, use the automatic photo mode 😉

Below is a photo (automatic mode of the basic camera, 6.0 mm lens focal length) and there is no chance to do it in Pro mode. Yes, it's sarcastic 🙂

But of course I want to have a manual lens switch at Pro mode.

It would be nice indeed, just take a picture in auto and compare with the same in pro and you will notice much more details and much less artifacts in pro mode. Maybe is not only a software update but the harware control limitation of the sensors, I don't know. If it's only a software updade, very bad from samsung side. I guess I bought all Samsung phones since the first Omnia and overall I'm satisfied,  but at this time a pro mode in all sensor is the minimum Samsung should do.

@bether @MarcoLeo66  Actually Samsung seems to take the opposite route.

In OneUI 2.5 RAW API is not available for front cam while it was the case before. Means they wont release pro mode either for front cam, and i bet no chance to be available for ultra wide.

I can understand for tele lens though as if i'm not mistaking it mixes digital zoom and optical and the post processing might be more complicated and they might not be able to provide a simple raw out of these. Dunno... But for ultra wide that's a big mistery.

I find a Gcam xlm file that allow to use the ultra wide lens but the noise is terrible and I did not find any way to solve it. At least Samsung should allow user to modify the post process weight (contrast and so on) in the auto mode to have the images  a more natural look.

@MarcoLeo66  If you found a version that works with it, either you're rooted with modified lib files, or you use a very old version that uses the jpg and not the raw, which means that it cannot process properly and that would explain why it is bad quality, since the raw api is not enabled/permitted by samsung for ultra wide for 3rd party apps.
