Every Windows Phone 8 device is equipped with both a front-facing and a rear-facing camera that can take pictures and record video. You can store the pictures and video that you record with the built-in camera on the device, play them back through the phone, and share them with others.

To take a still photo using a Windows Phone 8 device, you need to launch the Camera app by pressing the Camera button on the side of the device or activating it from the App list (or Start screen).

At that point, you aim the device at the subject you want to capture and then press the Camera button halfway down to focus the camera. When you’re ready to take the picture, push the button all the way down.


Geotagging

Windows Phone 8 devices contain a geotagging feature that appends your GPS location to your photos. When you use the camera for the first time, you see a prompt asking you if you want to allow location data to be used.


Windows Phone 7 devices contained zoom icons, which are noticeably absent from Windows Phone 8. Instead of using icons to adjust the camera zoom, Windows Phone 8 uses gestures. Simply use two fingers to make a pinching or unpinching motion on the screen to control the camera’s zoom.

Adjusting Photo Settings

Different camera settings are useful to adjust before snapping a picture. These settings affect things like the picture’s brightness and aspect ratio. You can adjust the photo settings by activating the Camera app and following these steps:

1. Tap the menu icon.

2. Tap Photo Settings.

3. Adjust the available photo settings to suit your needs.

Photo Settings

The actual settings that are available vary widely from one device to another. Each manufacturer integrates settings specific to their camera. Some commonly available settings include these:

Scenes: Setting for the type of photo you are taking. Available scenes might include close-up, night, night portrait, sports, or backlight.

ISO: The 35mm ISO equivalent.

Exposure Value: Manual exposure control.

White Balance: Control over the photo’s white balance.

Aspect Ratio: Choice between wide photos (16:9) and standard photos (4:3).

Focus Assist Light: Control over the behavior of the light used to focus the camera.
