S21 Camera shaking, photos blurry, and app lags

S21 Camera app is really buggy at launch and even with running the 2/1/2021 update. The pictures are blurry, there is camera shake even though phone is not moving. The app is very laggy and seems to have memory issues because I find that after using the camera most of my recent apps are closed. Happening on two different S21s. Reported in the Samsung members app as well.

 

Model: SM-G991U1 (US UNLOCKED, Snapdragon)

 

Baseband: G991U1UEU1AUAG

" there is camera shake even though phone is in a tripod and not moving"

That is normally an result of having OIS on while on a tripod.  If you're shooting video turn off video OIS.  I don't know if it's possible to turn off OIS for a photo.

I see many people also reporting issues with S21 camera so I am not alone.  I could also ask those of you saying you don't have any issues what model/variant/chipset you have because if it's not the US Unlocked model or a different variant, it's running different software.

My photos are consistently blurry no matter what I do ... I cannot take a picture of my kids; even when they try to hold still any movement results in a blurry image.

Have you seen any improvement on this? Just got my S21 Ultra today, and with 3x zoom it's basically unusable for taking family photos.

I can't use the primary (108 MP) for photos with any motion, they blur badly ... I can use the other lenses without issue.
