Now you can easily adjust the color tone directly from the front camera mode without the need to access camera settings again. The available options remain the same as in the previous version, with only two choices: Natural and Bright.

2. Discover Expert RAW

The second new feature is also in the camera application, with the integration of the Expert RAW feature directly into the default camera menu. Previously, users had to download the Expert RAW application separately from the Galaxy Store and outside of the default camera application. Now, the Expert RAW feature can be found under the “More” option on the default camera application.

When trying to access the Expert RAW application from the default camera application, users will be directed to the same Expert RAW application that was previously downloaded from the Galaxy Store. The two applications are identical in appearance and functionality.

Here, we can see that accessing the Expert RAW now has become easier with its direct integration in One UI 5.1. The settings appear similar to the previous version, including the Multiple Exposure feature. Additionally, the Expert RAW application now includes the AstroPhoto feature.
