Last updated: 29 April, 2014


Your device supports multiple modes within one function called Magic shot. After you capture a photo any modes that apply to the subject matter will display as options. You can apply these options immediately after capturing the photo or you can access them in edit mode.

Note: when you touch Switch Camera to switch between the front and back cameras on your device Magic shot will switch to Beauty face mode.

To turn Magic shot on, with the Camera application open, touch Mode Galaxy Camera - Camera Mode Button and then touch the Shot & more thumbnail.
