Samsung One UI 4.1 Night Photography Tips
Gear up smartly
Since the camera needs time to pick up a lot of light and then capture its target, stability is very important. So, when you aim to take perfect night shots, you should make sure that your camera remains stable, either by using a tripod or by leaning your phone on a fixed object.
To avoid moving the camera while tapping the shutter button, I suggest using the remote shutter or relying on the camera timer to capture photos with a delay. A flashlight and a power bank are also essential in your little one’s night adventure.
Explore some epic shots with Night Mode
With night coming, you can try to capture amazing portraits in a bright sky, streaks of light from vehicles moving around, or give a shot at night pictures – all of which are a new addition to your epic photography.
The Night Mode on your Samsung Galaxy is enhanced by the Brighter Night sensor that lets you take clear and vivid pictures in any dark environment with more speed, and less noise, while controlling the exposure time.
- On the shooting modes list, tap MORE >> NIGHT.
- If you set the time that appears at the right bottom of the screen to Max, you may get clearer pictures.
- Tap the capture button and hold your device steady until shooting is complete.
Aim for the Stars
A sky full of stars is all you need to sharpen your night photography skills. Here are four easy steps to capture a bright starry night with your Galaxy S21 Ultra and Galaxy S22 Ultra.
- Switch from automatic settings to manual on your phone by turning on Pro Mode so that you can adjust ISO, shutter speed, and other settings yourself for each shot.
- Go for a slow shutter speed to capture enough light for the shot.

Samsung Galaxy users should use Super Steady Camera feature in these situations
Samsung offers a Super Steady feature to the camera app for Galaxy devices. This feature compensates for camera shake more powerfully than VDIS offered by Samsung smartphones. Here you can see in which situations you should use the Super steady feature to capture a perfect and high-resolution shake-free video through the Samsung Camera app.
During activities that cause camera shake and dynamic motion, still, pictures may be taken faster than when the VDIS option is active. Therefore, using Super Steady is effective in situations where the photographer moves a lot or in some situations where a steady shot cannot be captured due to the dynamic movement of the photographer.
However, this mode uses a large amount of correction margin to keep the camera shake extremely high. So in a still situation or in a low-light environment, the exposure time becomes longer to capture the light, and motion blur caused by camera movement is reduced.
Situations where Super Steady Feature is recommended.
- Situations where Dynamic movements occur
Situations to avoid using Super Steady
- When there is a little movement of the photographer
- When the light is dim
