How to fix distortion in photos using Galaxy S10 Ultra Wide Camera

In case you did not notice it before or yet, photos taken by ultra wide camera on a Galaxy S10 has distortion around the edges, also known as fish-eye effect. If you want to fix that, you simply have to enable an option under Camera app settings.

The Galaxy S10 devices (S10, S10 Plus, and S10e) all feature an Ultra Wide Camera that allows a user to snap images in great detail, but also in a wide angle. This means that a user no longer needs to move back to capture a wider scene because the 123-degree field of view is often enough in most situations. Most camera field of view is only limited to 77 degrees, just not wide enough for many users. The ultra wide camera feature does come at a cost in the form of fish-eye effect. The edges of photos appear stretched in some scenes, which may not be acceptable for other users. If you don’t want this effect on your photos, you should change a setting under Camera app to fix the distortion.
