 ISO: Select an ISO value. This controls camera light sensitivity. Low values are for stationary or brightly lit objects. Higher values are for fast-moving or poorly lit objects. However, higher ISO settings can result in noise in photos or videos.

Aperture & Shutter Speed:  Adjust the shutter speed. A slow shutter speed allows more light in, so the photo or video becomes brighter. This is ideal for photos or videos of scenery or photos or videos taken at night. A fast shutter speed allows less light in. This is ideal for capturing photos or videos of fast-moving subjects.

Standard: Adjust colour temperature, Tint, Contrast, Saturation, Highlight and Shadows individually  Change the focus mode. Drag the adjustment bar towards or to manually adjust the focus. To switch to auto focus mode, tap

Manual Focus: Change the focus mode. Drag the adjustment bar towards  or to manually adjust the focus. To switch to auto focus mode, tap MANUAL.

 White Balance: Select an appropriate white balance, so images have a true-to-life colour range. You can set the colour temperature.

Exposure: Change the exposure value. This determines how much light the camera’s sensor receives. For low-light situations, use a higher exposure.

Please Note: If the shutter speed is set to Manually, you cannot set ISO setting to Auto, you are also unable to change exposure value. The exposure value will change and be displayed based on the shutter speed setting.
