Four hidden settings of your Xiaomi camera that you should activate
Although it still has a long way to go to catch up with the GCam, the MIUI camera application has evolved. If we enter its settings we will find infinite options that will improve the user experience from our Xiaomi.
Among all these settings, we find four quite interesting options that you should definitely try on your Xiaomi. Either activating or customizing them, will improve the photographic quality obtained or the user experience.
Because of this, below we have compiled Four hidden Xiaomi camera settings that you should definitely activate and/or try:
1. Anti bands, an option that should always be activated
How many times have you taken a photo on a screen and it looks like certain black bands? The same happens with high-intensity lights with electronic components, by flashing at a certain frequency, they cause the camera of our Xiaomi to capture them.
For this, we must activate the “Anti bands” From the MIUI camera in Auto mode. This way we will get it to adjust to the flickering of the source that produces the annoying bars. For this it is enough with:
- Go to Camera Settings> Anti Gang
- Once inside we activate the “Car“
2. Launch the camera quickly even with the screen locked
How many times have you had the urge to take a picture and your lens has vanished before starting the camera? MIUI allows us to activate the possibility of launch or launch the camera quickly although our Xiaomi, Redmi, or POCO is blocked.
To activate this option that allows us to start or open the camera of our Xiaomi even if it is blocked, we must carry out the following steps:
- Go to Settings> Lock screen
- Once inside, activate the option “Run camera“
3.Forget about crooked photos
At the time of taking out Photographs to landscapes or where the horizon line is noticeable, commonly, we do it in a way that is not straightforward to this. For this, the MIUI camera has a tool called “Straighten” Which allows us to take totally straight photos or videos.
To activate this option we will only have to display the camera toolbar and activate this option, that is, Straighten. After that, it will show us a horizontal line on the screen, indicating if we have our Xiaomi positioned straight to the horizon.
4. Change the colors and sounds of the camera
MIUI 12 allows us to apply a theme or color to the camera app through various default options. Besides, the sounds can also be modified in a fairly simple way to perform.
To customize MIUI 12 camera colors We will only have to perform the following steps on our Xiaomi, Redmi, or POCO:
- Go to Camera> Settings> Personalize
- Once inside we will only have to access the “Colors” section
Also, if we won’t change the shutter sound of the camera, from the same previous section of Personalize we will access the option “Sound” to adjust the one we like the most.
