Remotely Control S21 Ultra's Camera

Hi community,

Ive recently purchased the s21 ultra and love the camera and was thinking of using it for work. I work for an estate agents and have ordered a tripod for the phone, but I was thinking is there a way to remotely take a photo without me being in a room (whilst the phone it close up against the corner of a room). I don't mean me waving or palming the cam then running off but more maybe control it from another phone so using that as a view finder? Or maybe some other device like a clicker but definitely would prefer a way or remotely seeing the cameras view so I could change settings in Pro Mode whilst it's set up in its position.

Any ideas or help welcome, interested to hear from the Samsung community.

Thanks 😀

Or maybe put the phone where you need to and just set a 10 seconds timer so you got enough time to leave the room

Use a Google wear watch with a camera app. You can see yourself or whatever on the watch screen and take a picture. The down side is you can't use all the zoom functions and settings through the app. (Samsung watches might be better? But no experience of them)

All good ideas but I can't really see the setup/view as I need to set up against a wall or right in the corner of a room. I get I could do a timer but I don't particularly want to run out of the room or shout to take a photo. I was hoping I could use a second photo or a laptop to control the phone almost like a screen share perhaps?

Not a bad idea, I've got the Amazfit GRS watch, hoping to be able to screen share or remote control the phone from a laptop?

Download team viewer from play store then within the app download quicksupport from there you get a id number to send to the device you want to use as a remote . Do this on both devices then you can use either device as a remote .

Haven't tried this were there's no WiFi yet so maybe have to turn on hotspot on main phone with data connection and share it with remote phone .

I bought a natty little Bluetooth remote shutter activator on ebay. Cost about £5 and works perfectly. There are loads to choose from.
