Use the Dual Camera on Your Galaxy S9+
What exactly is the dual camera? It's the rear camera on your S9+! It refers to the camera's dual lens that supports 2x optical zoom and optical image stabilization (OIS). To put it simply, it lets you take crisp and clear shots even when they are zoomed in or a little shaky.
Important: The Dual Camera is not available on the S9, only the S9+.
Different Ways to Open the Camera

From the Lock Screen: From the Lock screen, swipe the Camera icon in any direction.
Note: You can customize the Lock screen shortcuts. From Settings, touch Lock screen > App shortcuts.

From Apps: From the Home screen, swipe up or down to access the Apps screen, and then touch Camera.
Capture every moment, up close and clear. With the Galaxy S9+'s dual camera, you won’t lose details even when zoomed into the maximum. When using the rear camera, you can zoom up to 10 times. To zoom in, open the Camera app. Aim your camera at the object and make a pinch-out gesture.
Or, with the Pie update, you can simply press the Optical zoom icon (the single tree) to zoom in.
Get the focus you want before you capture. Live focus lets you take beautiful bokeh shots where you make your subject stands out. And if you’re not entirely satisfied, you can adjust the level of blur afterwards. Open the Camera app, and then swipe to select Live Focus. Aim your camera to the object and use the Background blur slider to adjust the amount of blur.
