To use beauty editing, just turn on the front camera and select Beauty from the top menu. That brings up a menu with four options: Skin Tone, Large Eyes, Slim Face and Shape Correction. All are adjustable on a scale of 1 to 8 (except Shape Correction, which is simply on or off).

Video Collage

Video Collage has three options, each offering a fun option for preserving your special moments. Collage lets you combine videos side-by-side or in a grid, so viewers can see several films at the same time. Series combines videos together one after another in a sequence. And Slow Motion takes a single film and divides it into segments in a two-by-two grid, so you can watch the action from different points in time; each segment can be slowed down and played at different speeds.

  • In Camera, go to MODE in the lower left of the screen, then select Video Collage.
  • On the top of your screen, select which type of Video Collage you want to make (it’s the option third from the left, between flash and time).
    1. For Collage, you need to choose how many frames and the arrangement you want in the composition.
    2. For Collage and Series you also need to choose an aspect ratio.
  • Select the recording time (between 3 and 15 seconds for Collage and Series, or between 6 and 15 seconds for Slow Motion).
  • Press the red record button in the bottom center to begin filming
  • If you like the results, press SAVE.

Live Broadcasting

With Live Broadcast, you no longer have to upload videos and wait for them to process. Now they can just go out directly, to anyone you choose. You can also schedule your video to go out at a time of your choosing, depending on what you prefer.

  • In Camera, go to MODE in the lower left of the screen, then select Live Broadcast.
  • Sign in to your YouTube account (you will need a Google+ profile).
  • Select Invite and choose who you want to watch.
  • Start your video and share instantly

Effects for Rear and Front Camera

The rear camera has eight all-new options—Pastel, Vivid, Retro, Film, Monogram, Nostalgia, Gold and Delicious.

The front camera has eight different filters—Calm, Dawn, Grayscale, Evergreen, Rose, Sweet, Riddle and Everyday.

Whichever effects you choose, you can now control the strength of the effect as well as how much of a Vignette (or pinhole effect) to add.
