Enjoy taking great camera shots on HTC U Play. The Camera app has a simple interface, neatly organized to make it faster for you to switch modes and change your settings.
Lean and clean camera interface
The camera interface groups related capture modes together—such as photo capture modes—so that you can quickly find the mode you want, and puts modes and their settings side by side for easy access.
Without having to open the slideout menu, you can easily switch back to Photo or Video mode from other modes by tapping or below the shutter button. You can also just tap to quickly switch between the front and main camera.
See Taking photos and videos.
Two ways to adjust exposure
Tap the screen, and then drag your finger up or down to manually adjust the exposure. Or turn on the Touch autoexposure option in the camera settings so you can simply tap the screen to automatically set the exposure.
See Quickly adjusting the exposure of your photos.
Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) reduces blur from hand movements while you shoot. You'll get sharper, brighter photos with more clarity, even in low light.
Pro level capabilities
Pro mode gives you professional level control over your photography. Capture RAW photos and take full control over your camera settings. See Taking a RAW photo and Manually adjusting camera settings .
The camera captures RAW photos in DNG format. The RAW file provides more image information for post processing in the Google Photos™ app or a graphics program on your computer.
Hyperlapse lets you speed up the action up to 12 times, and select sections of the video to change its speed. See Recording a Hyperlapse video.
