• Random background music will be inserted automatically after taking the video

• 3 types of animated-GIFs will be generated automatically

• Super Slow-mo captures for 0.2 secs and could be played approximately 6.4 secs long

• Super Slow-mo can be used up to 20 times in a video

• Super Slow-mo only supports HD (720p) resolution

Aperture is a hole within a lens which allows light to travel into the camera body.
Samsung Galaxy S9/S9+ Camera has Dual Aperture that allows you to take shots in different light conditions which guarantee bright and clear photos are delivered. With F1.5 and F2.4 modes, it adapts to bright light and super low light automatically, like the human eye.       

 

• Low light situations: the lens opens to F1.5 to allow more light to pass through the sensor for a bright and clear photo.       
• Broad daylight: F2.4 mode kicks in to make photos look sharp with less noise.      
• Manual change (F1.5 or F2.4) is available with PRO mode
