Note: The features on your S7 screen may vary depending on the camera mode selected.

Pro Mode

Pro mode is in pushing the image stabilisation of the Galaxy S7/Galaxy S7 Edge to get much better low-light shots. It’s all about maxing-out the exposure time in order to get more light to the sensor. Let’s take a quick look at the Pro mode and what’s in it.

Filters. Alters the character of the shot and use custom-made presets at the bottom to create your own look.
AF. Alters the focus. This is great for taking ultra-close macro shots. Set it to as near as possible, then use the preview screen to determine focus as you move the phone closer to the subject. Easy.
White balance. Alters the colour temperature to suit different lighting. Or to create weird effects if that’s what you’re after.
ISO sensitivity. Alters the sensitivity of the sensor. Turning this up makes the S7/S7 Edge better-equipped to deal with poor lighting, but introduces more noise too.
Shutter speed. Determines how long the shutter is open for. The longer it’s open, the more light the S7 gets.
Exposure. How bright your photo will appear. This also correspondingly affects shutter speed and ISO.

Selective Focus Mode

The selective focus mode works by taking multiple photos of your subject at varying focus levels then allowing you to change the focus of your photo after it’s been saved to your gallery. A pretty good way of avoiding those annoying blurry images, though you do have to allow a fraction more time for the camera to snap multiple shots.

HDR Mode

HDR mode is a handy feature for improving the quality of your photos in certain situations. The HDR (High Dynamic Range) setting can help balance out harsh lighting conditions, high contrast, or backlit photos, making the final photo less dark.

To enable it, simply toggle the HDR to ‘On’ in the camera app from Samsung Galaxy S7/S7 Edge.
