Default How to take good low light/indoor pictures?

Whenever I take a pic inside or in low light it seems very blurry. How can I take good quality indoor/low light pics? Thanks!

You'll have to mess with the camera and its settings manually to find a good way yourself. Simply there isnt a simple solution to this sadly. The S5 Camera doesnt take in much light in dark conditions which is a con to it. You could try setting the ISO to its hightest setting in dark conditions as a starter.

Don't go around asking people to thank you, especially if your going to give outstandingly dull and boring reply's like that.

I found if you have the photo setting Picture Stablistion on it tends to blur the photo on the edges you get much clearer photos with it off as I think it tries to take the photo without the flash in low light if you have that setting switched on. Hope this helps.

-Turn on Picture Stabilization unless there is movement in the picture than keep it off and instead use sport mode.
-Turn Up ISO
-Use the flash depending on the conditions.

Anyone else??

Any people find optimal settings for indoor/low light pics? Or perhaps another camera app that takes better low light/indoor pictures than the stock TouchWiz camera app?

Not sure if this helps, but I tried Camera Zoom FX to ease my front camera low-light woes, and it did indeed help a bit if you play around with the settings. There was much less noise than with the stock camera app. I didn't try it with the rear camera however.

Well I just use Snapchat for front facing pics (in low light conditions) because it has the cool feature of flash on the front camera! I wish Sammy would implement that into the Stock TouchWiz camera app.
