This problem happened to my Exynos S21 Ultra after the last big software update DannyWo. I rectified it by taking four or five pictures using 108Mp mode but I set the focus and exposure in all these pictures manually by tapping the middle of the camera screen just once. I noticed that these pictures were in sharp focus and allowing full zoom in the image. Whether this kicked started the focus again or the processing or whatever I do not know but I noticed after this that all my auto 108Mp photos were now in sharp focus also. I hope this works for you as it is such a disappointment to get such results from a 108Mp sensor isn't it?. Good luck DannyWo. 👍

Can't really tell the difference in my phone before and after update ( I guess I have exynos too, I live in UK ) because my phone went to warranty ( couldn't zoom x10 or more ) so I never had chance to test camera properly. Also... Optical zoom in 108mp mode looks really bad too... Have u got the same ?

I feel the normal 3:4 takes better focus especially as you can then use the optical zoom of the 3x and 10x as to just zooming /cropping on the 108 mp.

Does turning on /off the scene optimiser make any difference.

I only use the binned 12Mp mode with the zoom lenses DannyWo to get up and close in my pictures which gives me brilliant results that are MUCH better than zooming in on a 108Mp image. The main point though is from what I believe you only have digital zoom in 108Mp mode?. Which explains why your results are poor mate. 👍

To be honest I can't remember with photos are with scene optimiser , so can't really tell just now. Most of them are with scene optimiser turned ON. But I remember when I was about to take pic and I turned off scene optimiser just to see the different on screen, photo was a bit brighter with scene optimiser turned ON...

The 108MP mode does not have any optical image zoom. The main sensor is the only capable sensor at producing 108MP shots and therefore any photo taken in this mode will be of the main camera, even the zoomed ones.

You can only use all the other cameras in the 12MP mode (4:3).

I never using zoom in 108mp mode because always looks bad - I guessed it has only digital zoom - and Babishko explained that me clearly.
Point is when am taking photo and trying zoom in on screen already taken photo nothing looking sharp at all . S10+ does better job. I hope photos below gonna explain exactly what I mean .

So I took photo of my back spot where I stay. Then I have zoomed to almost maximum in both photos and S10+ looks much better..

This is not digital or optical zoom! Photos are zoomed in gallery when u looking at already taken photos
Cheers for replays guys !
