When taking a photo in the Pro mode, you can change ALL parameters of the photo , whether the contrast, shadow, highlight, saturation, hue, temperature, etc ... It is of an ordinary photo something extraordinary and all of this is possible with RAW photos taken with your camera .

From the RAW picture and a good Editor, you can go from this :

To a picture like that : (Look at the Clouds)

This is what the camera see in Pro Mode, but not  your eyes

From my album (Can you see the Dragon's Head and Flames ?)

or you can just play with it for fun:

Since I am not a professional and I only changes the pictures occasionally,  i uses only free programs like Samsung Editor or Snapseed to play with the parameters listed above. On my computer, I use Gimp, Raw Rherapee, Dartktable and Luminance HDR which are also free. .

If you venture to try Pro Mode in the evening OR the night before I finish the article, be sure to have a tripod handy and keep in mind that the ISO number should always be on. the number 100. To have this number, (1) you click on ISO, switch to Manual mode and choose 100. Then you will have to click on the icon representing the aperture and the chosen time or if you prefer the term "speed" (2) for the aperture of the diaphragm to capture your photo. You can choose between 1 / 24,000th of a second and go up to 30 seconds of exposure. No need to repeat to you that a tripod could be used for long exposures ...

Some photos are impossible to take because of the low light in the scene and trying to take the following photos in Night Mode would have been useless as the exposure time was too long to take a photo with the hands up, hence the importance of the tripod. and Pro Mode

So here's a quick little lesson where I might not use the terms professionals use so you understand. So I will try to use terms that you will understand.

Cassidy007_2-1634703079793.jpeg

Let's take the following screenshot in Pro Manual Mode and compare it with the previous photo which is meant to be a screenshot taken in Pro Automatic Mode. We immediately notice that the device has chosen IS0 1250 ... It could therefore be that there is a little grain in the image ... 

On the second screenshot, we immediately notice that the photo,  which will be taken with the figure recommended by the Pros is ISO 100 , will be Overexposed because the device gives me the number + 1.7 while a perfect photo should show the digits 0: 0. This indicates that the exposure time chosen is too high, so instead of 30 we could try 15 and see if the counters are at 0: 0.

To have the best possible photography with the most details and the least noise in the image (ink on your hands) assume that in Pro Mode the ISO number should always be on the number 100. We don't succeed. not always but we can compensate in other ways to still have a good result. You just have to understand how it works.

The Pro Mode is not really made for auto racing except if you have defined in advance speed from 1/1000 th of a second to 1 / 24,000ième of seconds to  " freeze ”the image.

Fast speed will FREEZE the movement

But you can also decide to make a picture a really long time (many seconds) to make water as soft as silk

Long Exposure in Pro Mode will make water looks  like clouds and are more soft, this is a good exemple from @GusB with his S21 ultra.

You have surely noticed that the A on the 1,2 icons has disappeared and that on my photo, we can now see the word Manual ... I did not however deactivate the AF (Auto Focus) icon nor the WB (White Balance) icon because it is more difficult to handle in such a dark environment.  

When you understand the Pro Mode, you can get the following result thanks to the tripod! This is the photo I took when we could barely see the Image on the screen of my Note10

This photo was taken when we could hardly see anything, refer to the screenshot where 2 collimators are lit (the 2 white dots on the teapot barely visible)

So, let's begin the description and function of each of the icons I numbered above and try not to get too technical.
