The Galaxy S23 Ultra has the most versatile camera setup among high-end smartphones, offering quality images across various focal lengths. It has one ultrawide camera, one wide-angle camera, and two telephoto cameras (3x and 10x). However, images can look blurry in the 4x to 9x zoom range since it doesn’t have a dedicated telephoto camera in that range.
However, you can use a hidden trick to capture sharper-looking images in that zoom range.
Avoid tap-to-focus to get sharper zoom images from Galaxy S23 Ultra’s camera
Tipster Ice Universe (@UniverseIce) discovered that the level of details in zoom images captured using the Galaxy S23 Ultra varies depending on specific scenarios. Sometimes the images appear quite sharp, while in other instances, the images can appear blurry. Another Twitter user uncovered that the trick to capturing sharper zoom images is to hit the shutter button after zooming in and not use the manual tap-to-focus feature.
After trying this trick, several users noticed that the Galaxy S23 Ultra’s camera captured sharper-looking images with higher details. There is no manual option in the camera settings to achieve this, so it would be helpful to know this trick to squeeze out higher-quality images when shooting far-away subjects.
This shows the Galaxy S23 Ultra can capture excellent images across the 0.5x to 10x zoom range. However, it would be great if Samsung could add a quick tip or a manual setting in the camera settings menu to let users achieve the most out of the Galaxy S23 Ultra’s camera.
Yes , Great
U need to just tap the shutter button instead of tapping the screen to focus.
