Hello

I have S21 Ultra exynos version. The photos of night mode is too noisy especially in the sky even when I use night mode. I tried with pro mode and changed aperture and ISO and I got better result.

I also did full factory reset, but there are still many noise in the photos and videos at night!

I tried many things. Even I turned off my WiFi and I turned on airplane mode, but the photos and videos (low quality with blue spots) are noisy. By the way the phone is fully updated.

I believe you answered your own question there.

Just use Pro Mode as you have more control as with any camera mobile or dedicated in Auto you are the mercy of the cameras interpretation of the scene.

Manual you are in control.

Also I believe a bit faster shutter speed with low Iso will give a darker photo with lesser noise.

You could also shoot raw and adjust in post if you are really serious into night shots.

Yes, I can use pro mode but it's not the answer that I'm looking for. Open the second photo and you will see lines in the sky with noise, especially in the edges of the photo. It's not normal!

I tried. But nothing changed and HDR is disabled in night mode by default.

Hi Guys,

 

I have the same problem with my Samsung S21 Ultra with the same processor 

There are many Youtube videos where you can see the difference between Snapdragon and Exynos processors manage the night photo and video.

I hope Samsung releases an update to fix it

Same here. 12MP mode is unusable.

108MP (27MB one photograph) is almost as good as my old Mate 20 pro (2.5MB), but it has a lot of noise especially on the black surfaces.

Unfortunately for me, my girlfriend owns Mate 30 pro. In direct comparison my S21 Ultra looks like some Chinese phone in the $200-$300 price range.

So much noise in photos and specially in video. I'm still amazed that they can't even fix this after 9 months!
