Never Miss a Moment

It's a birthday party. Everyone is still singing as mom lights the candle on the cupcake. And then you see the birthday boy suddenly take a deep breath. While everyone else is scrambling to get their cameras on, you simply press the Home button twice, aim and shoot. Presto! You've captured the perfect photo in two seconds flat.

Set this fast-launch option through the Quick launch menu in Camera settings.

Time Travel

That's right, time travel—at least where your pictures are concerned. Suppose you focus on the foreground and only later realize—"Hey! Isn't that a famous celebrity all blurry in the background?" With your Galaxy S6 or Galaxy S6 edge, you can literally go back to that photo and change what you focused on. Even if that celebrity turns out to be a seagull, you have to admit this is still a cool feature.

Get Into the Action

With object-tracking auto-focus and optical image stabilization, there's no reason to sit on the sidelines to get a great shot. You could be on a unicycle in the middle of a football field and still get the perfect shot of a touchdown even while you're being tackled by three security guards. Or, you know, you can take a photo of a sunset while on your evening jog. Actually, that might be simpler.

Find the Bigger Picture

Wide selfies are just the beginning with your Galaxy S6 or Galaxy S6 edge. Use Panorama mode to get even more details into a shot—horizontally or vertically. Use Virtual Shot to create multi-directional memories of any place you've been, inside or out. The camera can even take photos and record video in 4K UHD, perfect for sharing on your 4K UHD TV.

Shoot Like a Pro

Automatic settings are just the beginning of great photography. Every professional photographer knows that manual settings are what turn ordinary moments into works of art. Use Pro mode to take control of settings like ISO sensitivity, exposure, white balance and color tone.

Flatter Your Friends

Not everyone likes having their picture taken. Reassure shy friends and loved ones by shooting in Beauty mode. This is especially designed to detect and lighten faces, resulting in gentle photos. Hey, isn't that our famous celebrity again?
