I think i am having an issue with periscope camera. When go to camera app, and choose periscope camera it just zooms in on normal wide camera. I see that image is not clear. I cover periscope camera with my finger i nothing happens. Clearly it does not use periscope camera. Sometimes it turns on periscope camera i can see that it is more sharper but not all the time. Why and when? I am an photographer and i need control on my cameras i am missing f2.4 and now this... Is it a mistake to go for note 20 Ulta? I had similar issue on note 9, and later software fixed it. Am i doing something wrong? I am not zooming with my fingers only with click on camera.

It looks like that a bug is still in place.

Try to zoom all the way to 50x and then go back to 5x , at that point the zoom camera should activate

I have also noticed that, especially in low light situations. I think that is because the 5x periscope camera has the f3.0 and the result will be quite dark in low light, so it just zooms in using the main camera instead which has a larger aperture. Does that make sense?

I too am hoping that future updates will somehow improve on this.

 You are correct f3.0 lets in less light. But what if i am using tripod or i have put phone on ground. Then i am using inferior digital zoom, it would be nice to choose which lens to use. When i was taking pictures with note 9 i could choose apenture and often that was f2.4. Also i can not take pictures in pro mode with other lenses. I am pretty dissapointed with this phone, how can dxo mark put so high value on images when they are with so much flaws? Not just this, but sharp images in center and not sharp on outside.
