The camera will use advanced AI segmentation technology and multi-frame processing based on the movements of a celestial body to capture images over a specified period of time.

You can also unleash your creativity and experiment by superimposing multiple images on top of each other to create stunning abstract shots.
To access the Astrophoto demo and multiple exposures, go to the special photo options in the settings menu in Expert RAW.
Camera Assistant lets you take photos on your own terms
Every passionate photographer has their own style of photography, so having a camera that gives you creative reins is essential. With the new Camera Assistant app, you can pick and choose which automatic features you want to use for a fully customized shooting experience.
You can download the app from the Galaxy Store or the Good Lock app. Once the app is installed, you can turn the feature on by clicking the app icon, going to the Good Lock app or accessing the Camera Assistant menu under Camera Settings in the native camera app.
The Camera Assistant app gives you the option to turn certain features on or off, including automatic lens switching, Auto HDR, and a Faster shutter. You also have more options when, for example, you decide how many photos you want to take after turning off the timer.
Camera Assistant allows you to enjoy the following main features:2
- Auto HDR: If you want to get atmospheric photos without the HDR effect, you can now simply turn it off.
- Photo smoothing: You can turn on this feature to smooth out the sharp edges and textures of your photos.
- Lens auto switch: You can now turn off the Auto Lens Shift feature, which automatically switches your camera lenses in dark environments or when you get close to the object you’re photographing. For example, if you want to keep using the telephoto lens instead of the wide lens to take a picture of the object closest to you, you can simply turn it off in the menu.
- Video recording in photo mode: You can now turn off this feature, which allows you to take a video by long-pressing the button in photo mode, preventing you from accidentally recording a video.
- Number of photos after the timer: You can actually take multiple photos automatically in quick succession after calculating the timer. Now, you can also choose the number of photos taken (1, 3, 5 or 7 photos).
- faster shutter: This mode allows you to take up to seven photos per second. This is very useful when taking pictures of moving objects.
- Camera deadline: You can specify how long the Camera app (preview screen) will run continuously for 1, 2, 5, or 10 minutes.
- Clean preview on HDMI monitors: View camera preview without any menus and buttons on HDMI-connected displays.
