The Android 10 update to the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 came with UI and performance enhancements to the camera. Lets take a look at a few of them!
First, a full zoom check - the Note 10 still just has a 2x zoom lens on the back, but the camera supports up to a 10x Zoom - here's a nice contrasty shot of the last of winters leaves, taken at 10x zoom, full automatic settings:

The image is a bit soft around the edges, an artifact of the 5x digital zoom. Here's a 100% crop of one of the high contrast parts:
Now, another feature it offers is a 0.5x wide angle lens; wide angle lenses typically will distort straight lines and introduce curvature at the edges of the image. The Galaxy Note 10 has a setting in the camera configuration to auto-correct wide angle distortion:

Now the new feature added - night shot! Tonight is cloudy and near a full moon here in Kansas City, so you get moon shots instead. Taken a few minutes ago at full dark, centered on the moon, we have both a 0.5 and 2.0 zoom in Night Shot mode. I tapped on the moon to make the camera sample the exposure on the moon, then turned the exposure slider all the way down, so as to not blow out the moon, while still getting the highlights in the trees.

Rather impressive new feature and a real powerhouse of a camera made even better with the Android 10 upgrade!
Enjoy your Note 10!
