Today, the camera on a smartphone is quintessential. The same holds for the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3. It packs three lenses, and the best part is that the camera and the foldable hinge combine to give you some unique shooting perspective. The Galaxy Z Flip 3 also packs a few camera features and settings to up your photography game.
So, if you want to get the most out of your Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 camera, here are the best camera tips and tricks. Let's have a look.
One of the greatest features of the Galaxy Z Flip 3 is that you can take a quick selfie or a video without even unfolding your phone? Sounds interesting, right?
Yes, you can do them all right from the cover screen. To do so, double press the Side key to open the Camera app on the cover screen.
Now, swipe left or right to switch between the camera mode and the video mode. Next, tap on the screen, and a timer will pop up on the screen. Once the timer stops, the phone will capture a photo or video in an instant.
And guess what? You can press on the volume rocker to start and stop recording when it comes to videos.
2. Supercharge the Flex Mode
The Flex Mode is one of the coolest features of the Z Flip 3. What if we told you that you could fold the phone and grab photos with a unique perspective? Well, it's a bit unconventional, but it's cool to use, especially when it comes to grabbing top-down views. The mantra is to be creative.
When enabled, the camera controls shift to the bottom half of the screen while the preview is at the top half. And that's not the only option. You can also swap the controls on the top half and keep the preview at the bottom.
All you need to do is double-tap on the blank spot in the middle of the top half as shown below, and voila!

3. Issue Voice Commands
Issuing voice commands to turn on a light is the new normal. What if we told you that you could issue a simple voice command to record a video or grab a photo?
Well, with the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3, it's now possible. All you need to do is go to Settings > Shooting methods and toggle the button next to Voice commands, and that's about it.
From now on, say 'Capture' to capture a photo or 'Shoot' to start recording.
4. Make the Most of the Hyperlapse Mode
The Galaxy Z Flip 3 also comes with a neat Night Hyperlapse mode that lets you capture cool trailing light shots. Yes, no kidding! The best part of this flip phone is that it can keep itself steady when you fold it halfway (and keep it on a surface). Yes, you can thank me later.
To enable it, head over to the More option, select Hyperlapse, and tap on the little Moon icon in the corner. Now, keep calm and let the camera do its magic.
5. Explore Single Take
Single Take is undeniably one of the interesting features of the Galaxy Z Flip 3. All you need to do is capture a video, and your phone will automatically generate a bunch of pictures in various filters and formats.
However, if you do not like the default duration of Single Take or the type of photos, you can change them.
To change the duration, go to the Single Mode, and tap on the little timer on the lower-right corner. Now, simply drag the slider right.

6. Create Cool GIFs
Did you know you can create easy GIFs right from your phone? It's easy and super fun, especially when you share them within your friend circle or over on social media.
To capture a GIF, open the camera settings, and scroll down to Picture. Under 'Swipe Shutter button to,' change to Create GIF from Take burst shot.
Now, swipe down on the shutter button down and hold it, and the phone will convert them to GIFs for you. Cool, no?
7. Record Snazzy Portrait Videos
Sure, portrait pictures are fun, but the portrait videos as cool. Like the picture mode, the video mode also puts the focus on the face and blurs the background.
The good thing is that this feature works well both on the rear and front cameras. And there are a couple of additional features as well.
To switch to the Portrait Video mode, select More > Portrait Video, and start shooting. As you may have expected, you will need a face to trigger the effect in front of the camera.
Furthermore, you can also tap on one of the bokeh icons here to add a different effect to your videos.
