    Hello, I guess most of us use the built-in camera at some points. I don't know about Camera settings but I would like to take excellent photos and videos using the Note. Anybody knows what these variables mean and how they affect the results? Thanks.

    1. Shooting mode: Single shot, Smile shot, Beauty, Share shot
    2. Flash: Is Auto flash the best option?
    3. Scene mode: Portrait, Landscape, Night, Sports
    4. Exposure value
    5. Focus mode: Macro (Is auto focus the best?)
    6. Timer
    7. Effects: Negative, Greyscale, Sepia.
    8. White balance: Daylight, Cloudy, Incandescent, Flourescent
    9. ISO
    10. Metering: Center-weighted, Spot, Matrix
    11. Outdoor visibility
    12. Anti-Shake: I suppose on is the best option. Right?
    13. Auto contrast
    14. Blink detection
    15. Guidelines
    16. Image quality: I suppose Superfine is the best option.

    Self-portrait: off
    Flash: Auto flash
    Shooting mode: Single shot
    Scene mode: None
    Exposure value: 0

    Timer: off
    Effects: None
    Resolution: 3264x2448
    White balance: Auto
    ISO: Auto
    Metering: Center-weighted
    Outdoor visibility: Off
    Anti-Shake: On
    Auto contrast: Off
    Blink detection: Off
    Guidelines: Off
    Image quality: Superfine
    GPS tag: On
