-Subhrojit Mallick


Samsung has updated the Expert RAW app for the Samsung Galaxy S21, S21 Plus, S21 Ultra and the Z Fold4 to bring support for astrophotography that was introduced in the S22 series. The feature allows users to take long-exposure images of stars and constellations, in RAW format, allowing users to further edit it in post processing to bring out a better quality.

Expert RAW app for S21 Series, Z Fold4 Gets Astrophotography Mode

Samsung has finally introduced astrophotography for the latest Samsung Galaxy Z Fold4 and the S21 trio with the version of the Expert RAW. The app is available from Samsung’s Galaxy store, a dedicated app store found in Samsung devices.

That said, S21 series users will first have to install the April 2023 security update to use the Astro Photo mode. To receive the security update, users can check for it the phone’s settings under the “Check For Updates” menu.

The Samsung Galaxy S21 series is not the only smartphone to get the update. The astrophotography mode was first introduced in the Galaxy S22 series. Samsung has promised the update for the older Samsung Galaxy S20 series, Note20 series, and the Galaxy Z Fold devices except for the first one.

How to Use Astrophotography on the ExpertRaw App?

Samsung was late to enter the astrophotography party, but has demonstrated to be one of the better applications. The mode, available in a separate app for camera experts, comes with an AR overlay showing the constellations visible in the night sky. It also allows long-exposure shots for 4, 7, and 10 minutes. You will need a tripod to get the best results. Furthermore, you will have to be in a place that is totally dark, with clear skies, and free of pollution.
