Use the camera on your Galaxy Book

Girl taking selfie with Galaxy Book S

Snap high-quality photos and videos using the camera features on your Galaxy Book, Galaxy Book2, or Galaxy Book S. Each model comes with a front-facing camera for taking perfect selfies, while the rear-facing camera is only available on the Galaxy Book 12-inch model and the Galaxy Book2. But no matter which model you have, your pictures will come out stunning.

Use the camera

You can move the camera window around your Galaxy Book's screen and adjust the window's size, so you can take a photo from any angle. Or, switch the lens on the Galaxy Book or Galaxy Book 2 to use the rear-facing cameras.

Navigate to Start, and then select Camera. Center yourself in front of the camera lens, and then select the icons on the right to choose your capture mode. Select the icons on the left or top (depending on your model) to turn on High Dynamic Range imaging, start a timer function, and use the magnifier. Now you're ready to take some pictures.
