What is Live Focus and how to use it?

What is Live Focus and how to use itClick to Expand

Live Focus is a new camera feature available in the Galaxy S9+. It allows the wide-angle and telephoto rear cameras to capture the subject and background separately, resulting in photos with a clear focus on the subject and an out-of-focus background

      
• Live Focus with bokeh filters can produce way more stunning portraits. By applying bokeh filters, background lights turn into shapes, adding sparkle to the scene. Choose among a variety of glittering light shapes such as heart, star, butterfly, note, rabbit, snow, aeroplane, flower, twinkle and heptagon.

• Image Classification Solution automatically categorises images and recognises subjects' surroundings to apply filters that make the photos look like they were taken by a professional photographer
• With Dual Capture, the camera can capture a Live Focus image zoomed in on the subject and a photo with a wide angle background, all in one shot.

 

It is highly recommended to position yourself about 1-1.5 maway from the subject. If you want to focus on the subject, shoot at a closer range. For best results, use Live Focus in a place that has enough light.

1 Tap Camera App > tap LIVE FOCUS
2 Drag the background blur adjustment bar to the left or right to adjust the focus on your subject and background blur
3 Take a photo!

In Gallery:
