How do I use the different camera modes and download more on my Galaxy Note8?

Last Update Date : Apr 09. 2018


Did you catch a rainbow appear after a heavy storm? Set your camera on Pro and play around with the color tone for some vibrant results. Or take a sweeping shot of a glorious sunset over the ocean in Panorama mode. With automatic and professional modes, the Camera app lets you capture every beautiful moment. You can adjust the exposure, color tone and ISO sensitivity like a pro or let your phone do the work for you in auto mode.

Note: Screens and settings available may vary depending on your Canadian wireless service provider and your software version.
