before a couple of days, i noticed a small tiny hard to see scratch on my galaxys21 ultra x10 telephoto lens, i wanted to try if it affects the photo quality, and i noticed that there is a lens flare in a shape of a line that appears when there is a bright source of light in front of the camera.
when holding the phone vertically the lens flare appears on the left side while the light source is on the right, like in this photo.
**the white line on the left side
but sometimes it appears at the bottom like this.
** the white line at the right bottom side
and when holding the phone horizontally the lens flare appears at the bottom like this:
**white line at the bottom
the weird thing is that it doesn't appear when I try to record a video using the same lens it just appears when capturing photos.
is it related to the tiny scratch or it is a normal thing,
photographers and galaxy s21 ultra users, what do you think?
