Samsung Galaxy S22 series phones are packed with many great features that set them apart from other great phones on the market, especially when it comes to photography. Many smartphone cameras get really, really great when it comes to taking photos, but the Galaxy S22 series in particular really shines with its low-light performance, thanks to Samsung’s Nightography. Not only does this helpful feature help you take photos in low light, but it can also help you take good photos when it’s dark.

What is Samsung Nightography?

Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra camera modes

Nightography is a camera feature that launched alongside the Galaxy S22 series in early 2022 and is exclusive to some current Samsung Galaxy phones. Samsung essentially made its night mode smarter and gave it a fancy name to make a splash during the event.

The Nightography feature turns your notoriously grainy and blurry low-light photos into something more usable. It uses AI multi-frame processing technology to combine 30 frames to create a usable image after optimizing colors and details in every pixel. All the processing happens behind the scenes when you take a picture in night mode. Samsung’s One UI software also automatically analyzes shooting conditions and recommends using night mode when the scene isn’t sufficiently lit.

All you have to do is take the night mode photos on your Galaxy phone and the nightography feature will automatically process your images to provide better results. Here’s a quick comparison to show you how the low light images look with and without night mode on a Galaxy S22 Ultra:

Notice that the right image is both brighter and clearer than the other? It was taken in night mode with an exposure time of three seconds. Here is another example to show you how the frame looks in the viewfinder compared to the result produced by the Nightography function after all the processing when shooting in night mode.

Which phones support the nightography function?

Instead of saving the best bells and whistles for the more expensive Galaxy S22 Ultra model, Samsung decided to add the Nightography feature to other Galaxy phones as well. In fact, there are more than a few affordable devices on the list:

Samsung Galaxy S22 series Samsung Galaxy S21 series Samsung Galaxy S20, Galaxy S20 FE and Galaxy S10. Samsung Galaxy Note 10 and Note 20. All Galaxy Z Fold and Z Flip foldables. Samsung Galaxy A52s 5G, A52 5G, A42 and A32 5G.

How to use night mode on Samsung phones?

If you happen to have any of the phones mentioned in the list above, you can use night mode on your device.

Open the Camera app on your Galaxy phone. In the shooting modes, look for the night option by swiping on the shooting mode carousel. Once you’re in night mode, you’ll see an option to choose the exposure time for the shot. Now that you are ready to take your picture, just tap the shutter button to take your photo.

Make sure you don’t move your hand to keep the frame steady throughout the exposure time. We recommend using a tripod if you don’t have steady hands. When you’re done, just swipe back and select Galaxy camera mode to exit night mode.

Tips for taking good photos in low light

While nightography is a great feature, it doesn’t automatically take perfect photos in low light. Fortunately, there are things you can do to improve the quality of your images regardless of the lighting conditions.

Use external lighting over the camera flash

All smartphone cameras these days have a flash, but we don’t recommend using it unless there’s no other way to get light into your picture. The camera flash creates harsh light and destroys all detail in shadows, can wash out subjects and much more. If possible, use an external artificial light source. They’re affordable, readily available, and some even let you change the color temperature of the lights with different filters. We have a recommendation below, but there are other options.

Use a tripod

Investing in a quality tripod is one of the best things you can do if you want to take stable photos. It can help you keep the camera static, whether for long exposure shots using your phone’s Pro mode, or relatively short exposure shots using the built-in Night mode. In particular, you can also use a tripod to eliminate motion blur or avoid shaky footage. Here’s one that will get the job done at a relatively affordable price.
