The Intelligent Camera Features on Galaxy Note9

Beautiful landscape framed with Note9

You want all your photos and selfies to look perfect, but sometimes, the elements are not so kind to you. The lighting may be wrong or maybe the wind made everything look blurry. With the new Intelligent Camera modes on your Note9, you can capture all your favorite moments and make them look great, even when Mother Nature says otherwise.

The ability to turn on or off the camera shutter sound varies by carrier.

Scene Optimizer

Should you use a warm or dark color for capturing that sunset? Luckily, the Note9 has a feature called Scene optimizer, which automatically adjusts the color settings to match the scene or subject matter.

On your phone, open the Camera app, access the rear camera, and then touch Photo. The Scene optimizer icon will appear in the right corner. To turn Scene Optimizer on or off, just touch the icon. It will glow blue when it's on and gray when it's off.

Flaw Detection

Have you ever taken what you thought was a great picture, only to realize later that you blinked? That won't happen anymore with Flaw detection on your Note9's camera.

When this feature is on, you will get a popup notification when there's a flaw in a picture, such as a blurry face or that dreaded blink.

Flaw detection is on my default, but you here's how to turn it on. Open the Camera app, and then touch Settings. Scroll to and touch Flaw detection to turn on or off.
