    Default Galaxy S5: Camera question

    When I take a picture, touching the screen takes the picture instead of using for focusing. Is there a way to turn this off? Call me crazy but i like to press the camera icon to take the picture. Thanks in advance

    Settings (the gear icon) then look for the Tap To Take Pics icon. That will toggle it off and on.

    With the camera app open, do you see the gear icon in the upper left of the screen?
