So, if you want to get the most out of your Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 camera, here are the best camera tips and tricks. Let's have a look.
One of the greatest features of the Galaxy Z Flip 3 is that you can take a quick selfie or video without even unfolding your phone? Sounds interesting, right?
Yes, you can do all of them from the cover screen. To do this, double tap the side key to open the Camera app on the cover screen.
Now swipe left or right to switch between camera mode and video mode. Then tap the screen and a timer will appear on the screen. Once the stopwatch is stopped, the phone captures a photo or video in an instant.
And guess what? You can press the volume rocker to start and stop recording for videos.
Flex mode is one of the coolest features of the Z Flip 3. What if we told you that you can fold the phone and take photos from a unique perspective? Well, it's a bit unconventional, but it's cool to use, especially when it comes to capturing top-down views. The mantra is to be creative.
When enabled, the camera controls move to the bottom half of the screen while the preview is in the top half. And that's not the only option. You can also swap the controls in the top half and keep the preview at the bottom.
All you have to do is double-click the empty space in the middle of the top half, as shown below, and you're done!
Issuing voice commands to turn on a light is the new normal. What if we told you that you could issue a simple voice command to record a video or take a photo?
Well, with the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3, it is now possible. All you have to do is go to Settings> Shooting methods and toggle the button next to Voice commands, and that's about it.
From now on, say "Capture" to take a photo or "Shoot" to start recording.
The Galaxy Z Flip 3 also comes with a neat Night Hyperlapse mode that lets you capture great leak light photos. Yes, no kidding! The best part about this flip phone is that it can stay stable when you fold it halfway (and keep it on a surface). Yes, you can thank me later.
To activate it, go to the More option, select Hyperlapse and tap on the small Moon icon in the corner. Now keep calm and let the camera do its magic.
One-shot is undeniably one of the cool features of the Galaxy Z Flip 3. All you need to do is capture a video and your phone will automatically generate a bunch of images in various filters and formats.
However, if you don't like the default Single Take duration or the type of photos, you can change them.
To change the duration, go to single mode and tap the small timer in the lower right corner. Now just drag the slider to the right.
Did you know you can create simple GIFs right from your phone? It's easy and super fun, especially when you share them within your circle of friends or on social media.
To capture a GIF, open camera settings and scroll down to Image. Under "Swipe shutter button to", switch to Create GIF from Take Burst Photo.
Now drag the shutter button down and hold it, and the phone will convert them to GIFs for you. Cool, right?
Sure, portrait photos are fun, but portrait videos are also cool. Like photo mode, video mode also emphasizes the face and blurs the background.
The good thing is that this feature works well on both rear and front cameras. And there are also some additional features.
To switch to Video Portrait mode, select More> Video Portrait and start taking photos. As you'd expect, you'll need a face to trigger the effect on camera.
Besides, you can also tap any of the bokeh icons here to add a different effect to your videos.
These are some of the Galaxy Z Flip 3 camera tips and tricks that will help you up your photography game. And as you may already know, these are not the only options available. For one, the Galaxy Z Flip 3 comes with a cool new mode for storing high-resolution images in small sizes. Plus, you can also scan documents or capture great two-way video with your new camera...oops, phone.
