When I first got s21 ultra I was actually blown away buy the camera quality, the standard scene optimiser night mode was amazing then I turned on the actual dedicated night mode and I was truly blown away with how much light it let in and made a photo taken in near pitch black and very low light look like they were taken with lights on, spectacular. A few updates later and I go to check both night modes and they are TERRIBLE! what the he'll happened?!
Now the photos are extremely dark and noisy.
Examples are of when I first got the phone and then tonight in both rooms in exact same lighting conditions.
Hi Keith, did that help? Im the same and amazed at night mode and showed it off to everyone....now I tried again and might as well not bother. Tried various setting but before was just take a pic and boom...now theres no boom and just disappointment.
Nope, no help at all.
It's mind boggling to wonder what was going through their heads to gimp a great feature so badly, I guess they just want those good initial reviews then stuff it. Bizarre, no other company I know regresses their tech and features like that.
Apple make it better as it should be.
Have you tried clearing the app data to see if this helps? You can do this by heading into Settings > Apps > Camera > Storage > Clear data. Please note, this won't delete your pictures. Once you've done this, restart your phone.
I am facing the same problem, was really shocked at how bad the night mode is. I try remove the cache and data in camera app but won't help. what is going on?
