Samsung Galaxy S21 and S22-specialized Expert RAW application has recently made its way to Galaxy Z Fold 3 smartphone. The camera app gives users a DSLR-like experience. It shoots only in RAW format and enables Pro controls such as shutter speed and ISO control for the phone’s telephoto cameras.
Rather than JPEG which compresses the image to the smallest file size at the cost of maximum detail, RAW gives photographers a way to access an image’s uncompressed data directly from the camera sensor. They can take advantage of all that data to improve every aspect of the image in an editing app like Adobe Lightroom.
You might find the RAW image format to be hard to work with. But if you are using any Expert Raw camera compatible Samsung phone, it lets you effortlessly shoot in Linear DNG 16-bit RAW files with even greater clarity and a wider dynamic range than regular RAW files.
This article will give you five reasons why you should use the Samsung Expert RAW app for shooting.
Why Samsung Expert RAW?
Stay laser focussed
Whether you’re shooting a spider nearly invisible to the human eye or a dangerous predator from afar, it’s important to take control of your camera lens. And this is the real beauty of Samsung Expert RAW.
Illuminate the dark
Capturing long-term images of the Bay Area’s misty beaches at night can be a daunting task. But that’s just what is achieved with the Expert Raw app on the Samsung Galaxy S22.
Adjust the camera ISO while using the app, so that the camera can record just the right amount of light for the effects you want to create. Expert RAW also lets you tweak the camera shutter speed, keeping it open long enough to register the dim pre-dawn light.
Make blue hour even bluer
The colors we see in real life aren’t always through the lens of a camera. This is where white balance comes in. White balance is when you calibrate ‘pure white’ in an image, so the rest of the colors on the spectrum pop accordingly.
By adjusting the color balance, you can make the oceans wetter, forests more green, and deserts more blistering.
Fine-tune your shots
The beauty of shooting in Expert Raw is that you have access to all the uncompressed data when you tap the shutter button. Easily send those Linear DNG RAW files to other Samsung Galaxy devices with Quick Share, then open them in a post-processing app like Adobe Lightroom
Using the Samsung Expert Raw Lightroom profile, play with highlights, balance, shadows, and other settings to make your vision really come to life.

Moreover, you can also set custom tones for message threats, create and schedule a message, change font size, edit profile, etc. Therefore, just keep updating the app to experience the latest features in your Samsung Galaxy smartphone.
