For Galaxy smartphones, Samsung has released a new app called Camera Assistant. It is part of the company’s Good Lock personalization app suite, and it provides more advanced features while using the phone’s camera.
Samsung Camera Assistant: Features
- The Camera Assistant app adds more advanced camera settings to the stock camera app for those who want to personalise their camera experience.
- It includes the ability to enable or disable automatic HDR, soft photo texture (to soften details in the image for creativity), and automatic lens switching when shooting subjects that are not in the user’s line of sight.
- It also enables users to shoot videos even when in photo mode. Users can start shooting videos by holding down the shutter button.
- Users can also specify how many images should be captured when the timer is activated. When the camera is not in use, the new app allows it to turn off automatically after two minutes.
Most importantly, it includes a Quick Shot mode for reducing motion blur in still images. Samsung notes that while using this feature, image quality may suffer slightly, but it would be extremely useful when photographing babies, pets, or other fast-moving subjects. People have complained about camera blur on Samsung phones, and this feature will help them. When connected via an HDMI cable, it also provides a clean video output on external monitors while hiding camera menus and buttons. All of these features will be available in the Settings menu of the stock camera app, under the Camera Assistant section.
The Camera Assistant app is now available on the Galaxy Store in India, South Korea, and a few other countries.
