Take great shots with Duo camera on HTC One M8
 

HTC One M8 has a really powerful camera that can take shots that can be edited after they are shot. You can change the focus of the photo and play with your photos. It’s a very interesting feature that has great results on taking photos.

You can also make 3D photos and add some wonderful effects. To use Duo Camera features, just launch the camera and take a shot.

Then go to the gallery and press the edit button and you can see the extra features on the horizontal bar.

WHEN DUO CAMERA WORKS

To use the Duo Camera these settings must be enabled or disabled:

• Scene: Auto
• Flash: Off
• Filters: None
• Aspect ratio: Wide 16:9
• Zooming: Zoom slider should be at the minimum zoom level.
• Continuous shooting: Not supported

General rules

• Hold HTC One so that you don’t block the second camera lens.

• You can’t use a cropped photo.

• You can’t apply Duo Effects more than once to a photo.

Lighting

• Use Duo Camera in an environment where there is a good light source. Post-
processing effects for Duo Camera do not work for low light photography or when you’re using the camera flash.

• If lighting is uneven, like when the background is a little bit under or overexposed, tap to adjust the exposure settings.

Composition

• Match your subject with an interesting background. Positioning your subject with some lights or a garden in the background will add color and distinction to your photo, especially if you’ll use the UFocus feature in Gallery.

• Post-processing effects for Duo Camera may not work if your subject and background are too close or when you’re taking a close-up shot. So, mind the distance (1m – 2m) between your subject and your background, as well as the distance between the camera and your subject.

• Duo Camera doesn’t support zooming.
