Samsung Galaxy Z Flip Camera Tips and Tricks

With so many options for capturing photos and videos, using the camera on your Galaxy Z Flip is a truly unique experience. You can grab photos when the phone is folded, unfolded, or propped open in Flex Mode. Your Galaxy Z Flip is ideal for hands-free capture as well, letting you take photos and videos with your voice or by showing your palm to the screen.

Even with your Galaxy Z Flip folded, the Cover screen can act as a viewfinder for quickly taking that selfie.

To take Quick shot selfies when the phone is folded, double press the Side key. Press either Volume key to capture the photo. To see your photo, unfold the phone and tap the Gallery icon from the Camera app. You can also use the Cover screen preview when unfolded, by tapping the icon in the upper right corner to turn on the preview.

To record a video using the Cover screen, double press the Side key to open the Camera app, and then hold down the Side and Volume Up keys. Continue holding the Volume Up key to start the recording, and then release to stop.

Go hands-free when the phone is partially folded in Flex Mode to take that great shot, and then unfold the phone for access to all of the camera modes.

Use the Camera app when the Galaxy Z Flip is unfolded to access all settings, including Wide, Ultra-Wide lenses, and panoramas.

Photos in Flex Mode can be taken by holding the phone while it’s folded, or by setting it down on a flat surface. Adjust the phone’s top cover to create angles, choose the front or rear lens, and then tap Capture. While in Flex Mode, the camera options will shift to the bottom half of the screen and will reappear at the top when you unfold the phone.

Panorama mode selected in the Camera app

Your Galaxy Z Flip is perfect for hands-free photography when you’re using the Cover screen, or when it’s folded in Flex Mode. Different methods are available so you can take photos by giving a voice command or showing your palm to the screen.

Open the phone, and then open the Camera app. Tap Settings, and then tap Shooting methods.

You can turn on the following shooting methods:

Voice control and other shooting methods displayed in Camera settings
  • Tap the switch for Voice control, so you can take a photo by saying keywords like “Smile,” “Cheese,” or “Capture.” Or, record a video by saying “Record video.”

  • Tapping the switch for Floating Shutter button will add a new Shutter option that can be moved around the screen.

  • To activate palm recognition, tap the switch for Show palm. You’ll be able to take a photo by showing your palm to the screen. When using the Cover screen, showing your palm will start a timer, so you’ll know exactly when the photo will be taken.

Night Mode can capture clear and precise photos after dark, and Night hyperlapse will create impressive motion videos without any blur. Hyperlapse photography is better and brighter than ever with your Galaxy Z Flip.

To use Hyperlapse, open the Camera app, and then tap MORE. Tap HYPERLAPSE, and then position the phone to get the shot you want. The best results can be achieved by using Flex mode and Night hyperlapse together. Next, tap Record. Switch between Hyperlapse and Night hyperlapse by tapping the Night icon (it looks like a crescent moon) to get a fully illuminated video.
