1. An apparatus comprising:
a display;
a non-transitory memory;
a camera module; and
a controller configured to:
determine, using the camera module, a plurality of first images and a plurality of second images corresponding to at least one external object, the plurality of first images having a first characteristic and the plurality of second images having a second characteristic, wherein at least one of the plurality of first images and a corresponding one of the plurality of second images are simultaneously outputted from the camera module;
store, when the at least one of the plurality of first images and the corresponding one of the plurality of second images are simultaneously outputted from the camera module, the plurality of first images in the non-transitory memory;
display at least one second image of the plurality of second images for a preview via the display;
receive an input with respect to the at least one second image while the at least one second image for the preview is displayed via the display;
in response to receiving the input, select at least one first image corresponding to the at least one second image, from the plurality of stored first images; and
store the at least one first image as a final image corresponding to the at least one external object.
