    Sooooo. It looks like there are some super amazing s5 photographers on here! Anyone got some tips that could help the poor unfortunate souls like me that cant make this camera do ANYTHING good for them. Every pic I take is blurry and underexposed. I have a dslr that I am reasonably competent with, but I am just AWFUL with this camera.... and I know its not the tool, its definitely "user error"

    You may consider these:
    1. Resetting camera settings to default
    2. Wipe off / clean your camera lens (Use microfiber cloth to ensure no residue)
    3. If you are shooting in broad daylight or well lit environment, set your ISO to 100 or 200
    4. Use image stabilization for low light shots
    5. During night photography, you may also turn off HDR and stabilization and instead use Matrix metering mode then use 100-200 ISO. Works great for me


    Enjoy

    Hello,
    I cannot access the camera setings on my phone. I read that the settings gear icon should be available when I turn the camera on, but its not there on my mobile. I can only see the camera switch, flash icon and the HDR.

    Does anyone else have a similar problem? Is there another way I can access the camera settings?

    Thanks in advance.

    The only thing I could think of why it's not there is because maybe you have your phone set to Easy Mode.
    Search on here or google, you will get the details on that. Cheers!

    No unfortunately this is not a filter. I don't understand why my images are so grainy.

    The S5 literally only takes good photos in 100% daylight with the stillest of hands ever. Google camera app improves this slightly. But it has been an extreme frustration of mine since day 1 that this camera produces a blurry picture more than half the time despite the fact that on my screen I see a clear, perfect, focused shot. I take the picture, go to the gallery and "wtf it's blurry!" I am considering trading in my phone because of this. Also the selfie camera is completely horrendous and makes people look stretched out and their skin sickly green.

    Hi, In this cases, what i do to get decent low light pictures is to fiddle the ISO settings manually. usually i turn off HDR and set iso to 100-200 during low light. Although this is a bit the opposite way on how the ISO functions but it seems to get the job done for this camera phone.
    Try these settings:
    1. 100 ISO, Matrix metering, Flash On/off, HDR OFF
    2. 200 ISO, Flash off. HDR OFF


    S5 tends to over-kick the ISO to high notch during low light condition thus resulting in very grainy but brighter image.

    Hope i helped you
