Hello,

this evening we went out and for the first Time i tried out how my S23 Ultra performs in low light or night mode scenes.

My S10+,and even my wifes Oppo reno 6 pro are doing much better,my wife opens the cam on Auto Mode and her Pics are much better in detail,noise and focus,she jut clcked out of the pocket.

i have to admit that the S23 Ultras Daylight performance is Miles ahead of the Oppo and also better than my S10+.

Usualy i take pics in good daylight conditions,but i really did not exepted this horrible Performance in low light und night mode,a real bummer.

Following recent updates @rexx73, I have found that 'forcing' Night Mode in any low light scenario on my S23 Ultra gives the best possible results with minimal noise. When I first got the device this was not true, as forcing Night Mode in low light could give quite poor results. Forcing Night Mode even when your phone selects Night mode for you when in Auto mode is the way to go in low light, for me at any rate. All this is with Adaptive Pixel mode toggled on in camera assistant.

That's strange. My S23 Ultra is really good.
Do you have stuff like scene optimiser turned on?
I usually turn this off.

i just made another comparsion und luckely the S23 Ultra did by far the best job.i made pictures in Night mode first without zoom,than with 2x zoom,same with the S10+ and the Oppo and i dont know why at the chili with the bright light shines it looked totally diffrent.however at home i did this comparsion with  the S23 Ultra,S10+ and Oppo Reno Pro 6,in night mode and always first without zoom,and later with 2x Zoom and the Results show a big advantage of the S23 Ultra against the other  two wich calmed me down.

Hi @rexx73 

Different parameters can affect photo taking and sometimes not all conditions are optimum which can also have an effect.

I'm glad to hear your following comparison had more favourable outcomes.

Like @Glenntech I've have not had a negative experience with my camera. Like him I have scene optimiser turned Off too.


Daily Driver > Samsung Galaxy s²⁴ Ultra 512Gb ~ Titanium Black.

The advice I offer is my own and does not represent Samsung’s position.
I'm here to help. " This is the way. "

I read somewhere.

Samsung is great with still photos.

Not so with moving objects and stuff.

Also different types of lighting will affect photos.

It it great to experiment with the settings in differing light conditions on the S23 Ultra @GoanGeek. This belief that Samsung devices are not good with moving subjects though needs addressing, as it is simply not true in outdoor scenarios at least, and I have had only a few cases of blurry photos indoors, all in poor light. The picture I have attached for you below shows how The S23 Ultra dealt with a passing motorbike (@20mph) at a recent Vintage Rally on Anglesey. As you can see, the camera has zero motion issues here. Even the wheel spokes have been caught at a dead stop.
