@madbilly nice explanation.
I am still interested to know if shutter speed, exposure compensation and the brightness slider in auto mode all work by the same means, or if they use different technical ways. @dipankar paul please can you give us an answer to that?Cheers
Hi @Kartik Gada,Good comparison, nice attempt to control the conditions. It could also be good to compare against something white.UPDATED:I took some comparison shots on my Nokia 8.Auto mode with brightness slider set to full sets shutter speed to 1/20sPro mode with EV set to +2 sets the shutter speed to 1/20sISO varied around 600 in the shot I was taking as it was a real life static subject, fairly good lighting.Auto mode with brightness slider set to minimum sets shutter speed to 1/50s, ISO was about 175Pro mode with EV set to -2 sets the shutter speed to 1/100s, ISO was about 110I also noticed a bug in the Nokia 8 camera UI. In Pro mode the brightness slide still appears but it doesn't do anything.Cheers
The EV slider works, but the problem is that the brightness slider is shown but doesn't work. I can change brightness with the EV slider only, which is a shame because it's not as useful as the brightness slider, it doesn't have as many stops or intervals.
In Pro mode on the Nokia 8 there are sliders for focus, white balance, ISO, shutter speed and EV. They all work.If I tap to focus in Pro mode I also (sometimes) get the brightness slider pop-up next to the focus point, the same as in Auto mode. In auto mode this slider works and has an effect. In Pro mode this slider has no effect.Clear now? Maybe the UI is different on the 7+ and you don't have the brightness slider at all? If I get chance I'll screenshot and post it, but it's a faff.Cheers
Yes, I think it shouldn't be there too. Except that in Auto mode the brightness slider gives almost continuous fine control of the brightness, whereas Exposure Compensation in Pro mode (why have I been referring to it as EV?) can only be adjusted in whole stops. So in this way auto mode is actually better!Cheers
Here's a video that helped me understand the basics in informative and very simple way:

Do you have any tips on how to stop the viewfinder freezing and the app crashing?
When does this happen first time opening or after taking several pictures? The phone needs time to process the images.
