Take stunning shots with unique Note10 camera features

Note10 camera up close

With every new release, Galaxy phones get better and better. So naturally, the camera on the Note10 is great! You’ll still have all your favorite camera modes, such as Super Slow-mo, along with some new additions like Live focus video, Night mode, and more.

Live focus video

That’s right. Live focus can now be used in videos! Add bokeh effects to really make the people or objects in your videos stand out. And the best part is that you can use it on both the front and rear camera.

To use Live focus video, open the Camera app, and then tap MORE. Tap LIVE FOCUS VIDEO, and then tap the Effects icon on the right side of the screen. From there, select your desired effect. Just be aware that the filters may not appear unless the camera detects a face.

Here are the different options:

  • Blur: Add a touch of blur to the background to give the video a unique look.

  • Color point: Make the background gray, so the video’s subject really stands out. Use the slider to adjust the amount of gray.

  • Big circle: Alter the background with garbled orbs of light. The subject will pop out and the picture will have an ethereal look.

  • Glitch: Gives videos a glitchy look like something out of a horror movie.

Super steady

Even if you’re rock solid, your hands may still shake a little when you hold your phone. To prevent unsteady videos, use Super steady on your Note10. It helps stabilize videos to make them come out super smooth.

Open the Camera app, and navigate to the rear camera. Select either Video or Hyperlapse, and then tap the Super steady icon at the top of the screen. It looks like a little hand and will glow yellow when activated. To make things better, Super steady can be used on both the Ultra wide and Wide lens.

Note: Super steady only works on the rear camera and can be used with Video and Hyperlapse camera modes.

Single Take

Use Single Take to create photo clips of scenes, objects, and people. The camera’s AI will decide which images to capture to make up to a 15-second video. The camera will capture up to five photos and four videos, depending on how long you choose to record.

  1. To begin, navigate to and open the Camera app.

  2. Tap SINGLE TAKE, and then tap 10s to chose the amount of time you'd like to record for. You can choose between 5 seconds and 15 seconds.

  3. Tap Capture to begin taking pictures and recording videos with Single Take. If desired, move the camera around while Single Take is recording.

  4. When Single Take is activated, the camera will utilize multiple functions at once, including Best Shot, Ultra-wide Shots, Live Focus, Filter, and Smart Crop. The videos will use motion photo, bounce and reverse, and Hyperlapse.

  5. After you’ve taken your shots, you can select the Gallery thumbnail and tap Single take to view all of the different pictures and images that were taken.

  6. To select one of the images or videos as your favorite, touch and hold one of the thumbnails until a menu appears. Tap the the crown icon to mark your preferred shot as a favorite.

  7. You can delete any shots you do not want. While in the selection menu, simply tap on the image(s) or video(s) you'd like to delete. Then, tap the Delete icon, and tap Move to Trash.

You can also create a movie by tapping Story Video Editor, and then choose from Highlight reel to show off the best moments from your clips, or Self-edited if you’d like to trim the video yourself. In Story Video Editor, you can customize your video by adding text or music.

My filters

Use the My Filters feature to create your own filters for your photos or videos. Take an existing photo that you like, and apply the colors and styles to another photo as you capture it.

Night mode

Nothing is more upsetting than realizing a great picture came out too dark. That won’t happen on your Note10. Use Night mode in low-light settings to brighten up pictures.

Open the Camera app, and select Night mode. Then, take pictures the way you normally would. Note10’s camera will automatically capture and stitch together multiple images into one single shot, making the picture much brighter. You won’t even realize that the picture was taken somewhere dark.

Zoom-in mic

You’re worried your phone won’t be able to record a sound that’s far away. That won’t happen on Note10. The new Zoom-in mic feature increases the volume of the recording as you zoom in on the audio’s source and also minimizes background noise.

This setting is on by default, but you should double check just in case. Open the Camera app, and navigate to the rear camera. Select Video, and then tap the Settings icon. Tap Advanced recording options, and then tap the switch next to Zoom-in mic.

To make the sound quality even better, Note10 has three microphones instead of two.
