Using hand gestures to take photos

Use hand gestures to capture photos automatically so you don't need to set a timer for group photos or reach for the shutter release button when taking selfies.

Here's how:

  1. On the Home screen, tap the camera icon to open the Camera app.
  2. Switch to Photo mode, if you're not using this mode. See Choosing a capture mode.
  3. Tap Camera Settings icon > Capture using hand gestures. Select Allow all gestures to enable all types of hand gestures, or enable only one of the following gestures:
    [ Thumbs up ]
    [ Finger heart ]
    [ V sign ]
  4. For selfies, pose in front of the camera. For group shots, set up your phone on a tripod before joining the group.
  5. Make a gesture to take a photo automatically.
Tip: Turn off hand gestures to avoid accidental captures. Tap Camera Settings icon > Capture using hand gestures, and then select Disable gestures.
