Delhi : The year's top smartphone is the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra, a product of the Korean juggernaut. The phone's 200MP primary camera can produce beautiful images in any lighting situation. Yet you may enhance your experience taking images with the S23 Ultra by altering a few camera settings.

Thus, if you have the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra, check out the camera settings and make any necessary adjustments.

1. Deactivate the beauty filter

The Galaxy S23 Ultra applies a lot of skin smoothening to all of its images thanks to Samsung's processing. You may greatly lessen this effect if you do not like this look by disabling the beauty filter. What to do is as follows:

  • On your Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra, launch the Camera app.
  • On the toolbar at the top of the screen's right corner, tap the Effects icon.
  • Set the filter's intensity to 0 and then select the Face tab.
  • Choose Off from the Auto button on the right side above the slider to completely turn off the skin smoothing effect.

For pictures shot with the front camera, this won't have an impact on the skin-smoothing feature, though. Its beauty filter needs to be turned off independently. The procedures are the same as before, however you must first switch to the front camera.

Here out some advice for taking better selfies with your smartphone if you enjoy using the front camera to capture moments.

2. Modify the Selfie's Tone of Color

Samsung offers you a lot of image processing customization options, unlike the majority of Android phones and iPhones. In addition to adjusting the beauty filter, you may make the selfie camera's images appear more warm or natural.

A natural appearance can bring selfies taken with your Galaxy S23 Ultra much closer to reality. You might not enjoy the appearance, though, as the colours and contrast won't be greatly enhanced. Change your style to a warm one for your selfies to achieve that pop effect.

  • On your Galaxy S23 Ultra, open the Camera app and select the front camera.
  • At the top of the toolbar, in the right corner, tap the Effects icon.
  • Choose Natural or Warm from the Color Tone menu, depending on your desire.

3. Capture videos in HDR10+

The Galaxy S23 Ultra can capture videos at 30 frames per second in up to 8K resolution. The phone can record films noticeably better than its predecessor thanks to the upgraded 200MP primary camera and the quicker Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 CPU. But that's not the case. You must record videos with HDR10+ enabled in order to take full advantage of the phone's video recording capabilities.

For those who are unfamiliar, HDR10+ is a High Dynamic Range video standard supported by Amazon Video and Samsung. It enables 10-bit colour depth support and improved dynamic range, contrast, and brightness in the videos you can take. With the Galaxy S23 Ultra, HDR10+ recording is by default deactivated; to make it active, navigate to the camera settings.

  • On your Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra, launch the Camera app.
  • In the upper-left corner, tap the Settings icon.
  • Toggle the HDR10+ videos option by choosing Advanced video options from the Video section.

Please be aware that HDR10+ videos are saved in the HEVC format, which may not work properly on some older computers and devices. The videos captured by the Galaxy S23 Ultra must be viewed on a TV or display that supports HDR10 in order to be enjoyed in full splendour. They will play back in standard quality without that.

4. Video Auto Frame

When capturing videos, the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra can retain a subject in the frame. When taking movies that contain a lot of movement, auto-framing is a helpful function to have. The camera automatically changes lenses in this mode to keep the subject in the frame.

  • Go to the Video mode in the stock Camera app on your Galaxy S23 Ultra.
  • In the vicinity of the camera selection buttons, tap the Auto Frame symbol. You cannot manually swap between lenses after auto-framing has been enabled.

Your S23 Ultra will now automatically swap between the lenses when recording videos to keep the subject in the frame. Be aware that the video quality resolution is just 1080p at 30 frames per second in this mode, so the quality might not be the best. Moreover, the rear camera is the only one that supports the auto-framing capability.

Contrary to popular belief, the 200MP camera on the Galaxy S23 Ultra is not just a marketing ploy. One application for the camera's power is video recording, which allows it to take in-depth videos.

5. Minimize Shutter Button Lag

The Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra does not take pictures as soon as you hit the shutter button, in contrast to iPhones. Instead, when you lift your finger off the button, the image is taken.

Someone switching from an iPhone or Google Pixel, where a photo is taken as soon as you hit the shutter button, may find this peculiar behaviour inconvenient. The S23 Ultra is not the only Samsung phone with this tendency; all of them exhibit it.
