    Hi Friends,
    I want to increase the shutter speed of the camera. Where would I go to do that? Thanks in advance. ;)

    Through different modes. Increased shutter speed is usually used for action shot right? So go to MODES, and select action shot/sport shot. If it's not there it's downloadable from Samsung's Galaxy App Store.

    There is no shutter or iris in these phone cameras.

    A "shutter" is implemented by reading the sensor faster or slower, but since you have no separate control over the aperture (the F number) the camera uses the shutter speed to correctly expose the image.

    The only way to prevent over-exposure is to use an external neutral density filter.

    Note also that

    - the Pro mode is not saved so has to be re-selected whenever the camera app is started (probably a bug)

    - the Pro mode saves the pic (jpeg or raw according to selection) in a different location, and it won't store it to the SD card even if the SD card is selected as the destination in the app and the SD card symbol appears on-screen (another bug)

    Currently there aren't many (any?) 3rd party apps which work properly on the S7. I am using Camera FV5 which worked on the S6 but on the S7 it has various bugs (RAWs are saved at zero size, the sharpness control doesn't work, etc).

    Peter, how can the saving of the RAW files to the internal storage be a bug when the software specifically tells you RAW/jpg images will be saved to the internal storage. It's obviously been done by design whether you like it or not.

    BUT the files don't get saved to the SD card. They go into /storage/emulated/0/DCIM/camera instead.

    It's stupid because RAW images are about 25MB and the last place you want them is the above path.

    Yes I know that, I said the internal storage, not the SD card, but they have done it for a reason, what that is, i dont know, hence the message you get, but its not a bug.

    So the image of the SD card (while the app is saving the files elsewhere) is not a bug but a feature intended to make the user spend more quality time with his/her phone, looking for the JPG+DNG files :)

    That SD card icon is just shown from when you set that in settings regardless, yes it should disappear when you enable RAW mode, but it doesn't, deal with it :)

    The whole implementation is rubbish. The user should be able to choose where the images are saved.

    The 3rd party apps offer this functionality, but I don't think any currently work on the S7.

    I have the S7 and when I'm taking pictures in a light box the camera on the phone tries to lower the exposure giving it a yellow tint but taking pictures with out added light it does great. What is a " external neutral density filter " ? And where do I buy it?

    A neutral density filter is a filter which reduces the intensity of light reaching the sensor without altering other properties (tint, polarisation, etc). You can buy them for real cameras from a camera shop.

    I've never heard of one for a phone, since phones don't come with any attachment to fit such things to. You could always buy one for a camera and hold it over the lens, but awkward wouldn't begin to describe that.

    Velcro strip might work for this.
    One half would have to be stuck to the back of the phone, but it would mean a ND filter could be fixed to the back when required.
