How to use Live Focus feature on Galaxy Note8

Last Update Date : Jun 27. 2018

Step 1: Tap Camera App > Select Live Focus

The Live focus feature allows the camera to capture the subject and the background separately so that you can get an out-of-focus photo with the focus on the subject. 

  • Position subjects about 1.2 m away from the camera lens. 
  • Adjust the background blur effect on the preview screen and take a photo that highlights the subject. 

Please note: Use this feature in a place that has sufficient light. Only available in AUTO mode.

Step 2: Adjust background blur > Snap a pic!
