Lots of people on this forum are dissatisfied with the standard camera app and turn towards Gcam (I too use Gcam). But I would really like to collect all sorts of useful tips and tricks for the stock camera because the official manual
by Nokia is not only very basic but also outdated. Some users on this forum already posted some interesting tips on various threads in this forum:
Bug - double icons in the viewer
Solution: Settings app - View - Advanced - Display size - Standard
Tap the place in the screen that you want to focus.
Note: you have to take the photo very quickly, after 3 seconds the focus is back in the middle of the photo.
Moving objects indoors and sports
Long press for burst - select the best photo later.
Activate this function via the settings (the hamburger menu in the viewer)
Shutter control (Long press to take action shots): ON
Activate via the hamburger menu.
In portrait mode you can also activate the pro function with a swipe upwards on the shutter button. You can return to the auto function with a swipe down on the shutter button.
- Focus: infinite
- ISO: 100
fireworks: 200 or 400 (background = dark)
- shutter speed: 1/2 sec.
- flash: switch off
- ISO: 1600,
- shutter speed: 1/2

Hopefully lots of users can share other tips and tricks for the stock camera here?
For example in auto mode I use these settings (in Viewer):
Double - Single-sided - HDR - (Flash off)
+ Gridlines - activate via the settings (the hamburger menu in the viewer)
