One of the key moments in smartphones is undoubtedly photography, which is gaining in importance at the same time that its technology has evolved to withstand professional cameras. What previously seemed impossible is now possible, and thanks in part to mobile phone scene modes which give the mobile phone an infinite number of photographic benefits.
While there are many advanced features in mobile phones, those who are most or least versed in photography use the classic camera mode in most cases. However, this was not the case before, since the photos we took on smartphones without adjusting any parameters were somewhat mediocre. Fortunately, technology has changed this and allows us to use mobile phones with better results today.
All about story modes on mobile
To find out the camera modes, we have to go back to the origins of digital cameras, we are not talking about smartphones yet, but we go further. A few years, when compact cameras brought photography to all pockets with a moderate size and with technologies that provided good results, smartphones later reached. Among the advantages that allowed us to take a photo with good results for everyone were the photo modes we just mentioned.
The beginnings of modes that we saw in cameras soon appeared on mobile phones, which will allow us to experience their benefits. Primarily operation of scene modes is based on a system of automatic advanced options that allowed users to choose from a variety of available photographic modes depending on what was in front of our eyes. That was what was achieved, it was quick and instant application of settings without the need for the user to enter the professional mode of the camera to adjust the shutter, frame rate and other available items.
To access the picture mode, we needed to go to the top of the camera options, where we had a manual mode for selecting camera scenes. Although its advantages were and remain many, today it is very difficult to find a smartphone that supports suitable camera modes, as a new evolution has reached the camera of mobile phones. This does not mean that the camera modes have been eliminated, on the contrary, they have done what they did to evolve for the better, ensuring that it doesn’t matter what we are going to photograph, because the ideal mode is automatically activated.
The development of artificial intelligence has allowed mobile phones recognize the scene and apply the ideal mode , one that will allow you to get the perfect photo without losing detail. Gradually, all Android mobile brands as well as iPhones have integrated artificial intelligence to recognize what we are about to photograph and offer us the best result without complicating ourselves, which allows us to take out the mobile and shoot quickly. In addition, in Huawei terminals, when the mode is activated, it is displayed as text for a few seconds so that we know which parameters have been applied.
Therefore, currently, if we want to use scenes, we only need to have artificial intelligence mode of mobile camera activated. If in our case this mode is not displayed, it is because our mobile phone even applies it automatically without the ability to deactivate it, as is the case with most Android mobile phones, unlike Xiaomi and Huawei terminals. For its part, the recognition modes also work in the video, allowing them to be adapted at any time depending on what we are recording. This allows us to record the sunset with the best possible result and after a few seconds turn on the mobile phone and record people, although the camera settings for this are very different.
Existing different scenes
Regardless of whether our smartphone allows you to activate camera modes manually or automatically using artificial intelligence, we will tell you a series of scenes created for us by the developers. Each of them can be identified using the icons that we show you below and we will mention later. For some manufacturers, these icons are displayed on the screen when activated, so that we can make sure that the mobile phone knows exactly what we are pointing at with the mobile camera.
- Documents and text
- Groups of people
- Natural colors
- Macro photo
- Cloudy sky
Failed to get scene recognition to work
When we were the ones who chose the way to use, there were not many problems that we find now with automatic scene recognition on mobile phones, but now we sometimes have to live with errors that make it difficult take us the perfect photo. We will explain where the problem might come from and how to fix it on your smartphone.
Why doesn’t my mobile phone recognize scenes?
If you find that your mobile phone does not recognize what you want to capture, and you are sure that this is not happening due to the artificial intelligence option is disabled, we will have to delete all cache files that our mobile camera has. and so on get an option. To do this, we will need to go to Settings> Applications and view system applications by clicking on the three dots at the top.
Once inside the camera app, we need to access the storage and clear the cache. These accumulating files can block the use of scenes or cause it due to some other error. With these steps, we will return the camera to its original condition and it will not affect our photos or videos.
The scene is stuck
Another glitch that affects users in this mode is when one of them has been blocked, no matter how far we point the camera at the sky or at a nearby object, the camera cannot recognize it. This error is easier to solve, we only need to close the multitasking camera and reopen it, now we get, artificial intelligence and scenes do their job right.
In other cases, however, we may think that the scene has remained fixed, but nevertheless, it may be that what we are aiming for does not have a specific scene on the smartphone and reuse another one to solve it. For example, the photo mode for dogs is no different than the others on many mobile devices, and it’s okay if it detects a turtle it applies the same scene as it does for dogs.
One of the “problems” most frequently emerging in forums and social networks lately is related to the disappearance of stage modes. The problem, as we mentioned a few lines earlier, is that this technology has changed and is now being applied through artificial intelligence.
The use of special algorithms can mean that we do not have quick access to photo modes use them as usual, but nevertheless, it still works even if no icon makes us see them.
Artificial intelligence has supplanted many of the parameters that were previously manual for our convenience, in which case none of the more well-known levels of customization still allow us to change the scenes at will, so there will be no way to manually select them.
