How do I take a Magic Shot photo using my Samsung Galaxy S5?

Last Update Date : Jan 09. 2018

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.

You will be taken to a review screen. The modes available to you may vary based on the photo content. There are five possible options:

  • Settings Icon Best photo: The Best photo mode captures eight photos and selects the best one.
  • Camera Flash Best face: The Best face mode lets you capture five photos and select the best face for each of the subjects.
  • Auto Night Mode Drama shot: The Drama photo shooting mode lets you capture a series of photos of a moving subject and merge them into one photo.
  • Camera Flash Eraser: The Eraser photo shooting mode lets you capture five photos of a scene and erase unwanted moving objects, such as passersby.
  • Recording Mode Panning shot: The Panning shot mode lets you capture wide photos.

Note: Drama shot, Eraser and Panning shot are only available when using the back camera. Best photo and Best face are available when using the front or back camera.View Panoramic Photo
