When the first features of Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ Plus camera modules became known, Samsung fans kept talking and raving about it for months! A brand-new technology that completely shifts the idea of shutter and auto-focus, the improved shooting in low-light and everything else that the specs were announcing seemed to introduce an outstanding camera experience.
The truth is that it is, your Samsung Galaxy S8 or Samsung Galaxy S8+ Plus’s camera is an excellent feature. The problem with it, however, is that not all users are well-aware of their options, how to tweak the numerous settings and how to make use of all those features that, obviously, cannot all run at the same time.
If you are one of those who noticed that the camera app is moving slowly, or you need more time to take pictures and you get that notification “Hold the device steady until it finishes taking the picture” while the loading circle takes ages, we get your frustration. Whenever you don’t have the patience to wait that long or your hand starts aching and trembling that you get fuzzy pictures, you have the right to be upset.
What you don’t know, however, is that you can fix these slow camera performances with a simple tweak – by deactivating the Picture Stabilization feature from the Camera settings of your Samsung Galaxy S8 or Samsung Galaxy S8+ Plus.
To edit the camera settings of Galaxy S8…
- Simply open the Camera app;
- Go to the Settings menu, accessible from the lower left area of its screen;
- Identify the Picture Stabilization option in there and tap on it to deactivate this feature.
Now you got rid of this option and you shouldn’t feel bad about it at all! Sure, the idea sounded great, but the Picture Stabilization is only helping with taking brighter photos in situations with low-light. All it does is to keep the shutter open for longer, gathering more light, and, thus, capturing more details. The smallest move of the Samsung Galaxy S8 or Samsung Galaxy S8+ Plus could lead to blurry or fuzzy pictures.
If you don’t need the extra light or you just don’t have such a steady hand, just disable it. Your pictures will end up great, as they will require less shooting time and your hand will not start shaking that fast.
