Using the camera

How do I use the camera?

The Camera app lets you take photos, panoramic photos, videos, and immersive 360-degree photo sphere shots, including what's above and below you.

To open the Camera:

  • From the lock screen, swipe from right to left.
  • From the Home screen, touch Camera.

When you open the Camera, swipe left to right to choose from five different camera modes:

Photo Sphere

To capture a 360-degree or wide angle shot, pan or tilt until the circle in the center of the screen moves over a blue dot and records the portion of the image. Keep moving over the dots until you're finished, then touch the check mark at the bottom of the screen.



Touch Panorama to begin taking a panoramic photo.

Find your starting point, and touch the shutter to take the first picture in the panorama.

To take the subsequent pictures, slowly swivel the phone in place to move the target icon over each gray dot until the dot turns blue.

Keep hovering over the dots until all of them are blue and your image is complete. Then touch the check mark at the bottom of the screen.


Lens Blur

Touch Lens Blur, then slowly raise the device following the arrow. 

Camera Touch Camera to take regular pictures. 
Video To start recording a video, touch the video button. Touch it again to stop. 


To change settings for each mode such as flash and exposure, touch the circle with the three dots at the bottom right of the framed image.
