Auto scene recognition
Auto scene recognition mode detects the conditions in which you are shooting and automatically adjusts the settings to ensure that you take the best photo possible.
Use Manual mode when you want to manually adjust your camera settings for taking photos and videos.
You can apply AR (augmented reality) effects to your photos and make them more fun. This setting lets you integrate 3D scenes into your photos as you take them. Just select the scene you want and adjust its position in the viewfinder.
You can apply different effects on your photos or videos. For example, you can add a Nostalgic effect to make photos look older or a Sketch effect for a more fun image.
The camera takes a burst of 31 photos in a window of two seconds – one second before and after you press the camera key. So you can go back and find the perfect image.
