Samsung Galaxy S6, edge: a brief walk through the new TouchWiz camera app
With the arrival of the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 edge, Samsung also unveiled a much more streamlined and simplified TouchWiz, which has usually received a lot of flak in the past for being "laggy". Well, it's now better than before, and although not perfect, the latest TouchWiz UI iteration is certainly a pretty huge leap in the right direction.
Some of the camera modes and features arenot new - mentioning fast motion, slow motion, real-time HDR preview, and panorama won't raise any eyebrows, as these have been somewhat of a standard for flagships, but we have two new entrants on that scene - Pro mode and Virtual Shot. Pro mode, on the other hand, is in fact a pretty extensive manual control for the camera, allowing you to manually set the ISO, the exposure correction, white balance, metering, as well as manual focusing.
Virtual shot, in particular, is quite interesting - imagine a GIF file paired with a photosphere. After you shoot an object from all sides with a circular motion, you can move your phone around and the perspective of the resulting image will correspondingly shift as well, enabling you to view the object you've just shot from all sides. The best part is that it's all combined in a single file.
The front camera comes with the following modes: selfie, wide selfie (a selfie panorama, basically), as well as virtual shot and interval shot. As you probably know, similar to the rear camera, the selfie snapper is also capable of live HDR.
