To get better captures with the
Camera app, here are some tips on what to do while taking your shots.
Getting the most out of
HTC Zoe photos
- When shooting in Zoe mode, try to keep
Droid DNA by HTC steady to capture moving subjects against a static background scene.
- If using Sequence Shot to stitch different action shots in one photo, encourage the subject to make obvious lateral movements.
- When taking a group photo, ask your subjects to hold the pose until you have finished capturing. Use Always Smile to choose the best frames and have a photo that has everyone smiling.
- If you need more than a few seconds to capture the moment, take continuous camera shots and clear the frame limit. You can apply Object Removal, Sequence Shot, and Always Smile on continuous camera shots that are saved as a batch.
Improving focus and sharpness
Taking well-lit photos
Droid DNA by HTC automatically adjusts the focus and exposure. If the image appears underexposed (the image appears dark on the Viewfinder), tap a part of the image that is in shadow. Conversely, tap a well-lit object in the image if the image seems to be overexposed. Focus on an object with a neutral tone for a balanced exposure. Keep in mind that tapping on another object may shift the focus from your subject.
If you are using the default settings and the photo still appears too dark, switch to Night mode, but place
Droid DNA by HTC on a level surface to keep it steady.
If there are parts of the image that are in shadows and others are in highlights, use HDR mode to capture three shots of different exposures and combine them into one shot. Keep
Droid DNA by HTC steady or place it on a level surface when using HDR.
- When taking a panoramic photo, consider the whole scene and focus on an object that has a neutral tone to help keep the exposure balanced in the composite image.
If your subject is lit from the back, use Backlight scene to highlight the foreground and keep some details of the background.
