How do I camera: Samsung releases its own video series with camera tips and tricks for the Galaxy S8

Some months ago, Apple launched a “How to shoot on iPhone 7” series of videos, which were supposedly meant to teach users how to achieve magic with the cameras on their brand-new iPhones. However, the tips were quite basic and the videos, albeit well-made, were something to the tune of “Open camera, tap the white circle, congratulations!”.

Still, exposure to features, which not every user might know off the bat is a good way to have consumers crave your device that much more. Which is probably why Samsung is well on track with its own “Galaxy S8 camera tips” series, which currently holds 6 videos in total.

What does Samsung teach us? Well, the series kicks off with a “Low Light Photography” video, which sounds promising, but is simply there to boast about the Galaxy S8's ability to capture dark scenes — no tips there. Then we have a cool video reminding us to mind our perspective when looking for a composition. A demo of Bixby Vision translating Chinese in real time follows, then a tip on how to take pictures of “light paintings” with the camera's Pro Mode, and a couple more small tips — you get the drift. Here are all the videos for you to check out yourself:
