Your smartphone camera is many things and among them an incredible tool. A good camera offers more than just the ability to take pictures. You’re able to record the moments of your life and graphically carry on important memories. Most smartphones have different camera capabilities, but the Samsung Galaxy S5 opens a world of possibilities with a high resolution, powerful camera. In this article, we look at some of the things you might just do to make sure you’re taking the best photos possible with your S5 smartphone camera. Set White Balance to Auto – this is a timeless Samsung Galaxy S5 photography tip. More often than not, you’ve taken a potentially good photo only to realize that it comes out with a totally different color. Well, you might want to set the white balance feature on your S5 camera to ‘auto’ mode. This makes it possible for the device’s camera to read your scene’s color temperature and automatically adjust so that you get an accurate snap that reflects the colors of the moment. Shoot in 4K – another handy Samsung Galaxy S5 tip, this will make you eager to take your next family video. If you thought HD was the best thing around, you were wrong. 4K, otherwise known as Ultra HD, is a new standard that makes possible increased video clarity. As a result, you get to capture breathtaking video that captures the fun of the moment. But wait a minute, there’s a downside to this, the files are very large! So if you’re the kind that loves to keep their micro SD space idly vacant, you might not just be ready to make use of this cool feature. Take Pictures with Voice – this Samsung Galaxy S5 photography tip might be just to impress your cronies, but it’s definitely worth a mention. From the camera screen, simply say ‘Flash on’, or ‘Smile,' ‘Capture’ or ‘Record Video.' The S5 will take care of the rest. Enable Burst Mode – burst mode makes it possible for you to take the shot you’re looking for. Basically, when you turn this on, you get to capture a burst of photos in rapid succession by holding down the capture button. Burst mode photos can only be saved on the phone (not the SD card) because it’s fast enough, so you’ll want to make sure you have some extra space. As you’ll soon find out, applying these tips can have an elevating, positive effect on your Samsung Galaxy S5 photography skills.
