    Default Taking a drama shot?

    I can't get my phone to take a drama shot. I select shot & more, take the pic and the option selections menu comes up but it won't let me select the drama option.

    Any suggestions?

    Wait for someone to make youtube videos on how to use this fancy camera. That's what I'm doing anyway lol

    If you watch this video @ 1:58 it's just what mine looks like and he can't select drama mode either.

    Just did one with my fat finger rolling across the screen

    Hmm....I just tried the finger pic and it worked too. I guess the subject has to go directly across the screen and not toward you or away. I tried to film my buddy riding a log when mountain-biking the other night. He was riding towards me.

    Thanks for the info!

    It does not work indeed when the subject is going toward you . On my HTC one m7 it did the same.

    Yeah. You have to focus the phone on one position and the object needs to move thru the screen.

    For the best results you need to focus the camera on a fixed point and have the object moving across the screen from left to right (or vice versa). The camera can't distinguish movement to combine the photos if the object is moving directly towards or away from you.

    Well, since I figured it worked with my finger I was all set. Nope. Now it doesn't work even trying to take a picture moving my finger across the screen.

    I called Samsung support and the tech guy didn't even know what a drama shot was.

    I wish there was an actual "Drama Shot" mode like on the S4 instead of it being in Shot and More

    Takes some practice. The end result can be pretty cool though!

    Believe me, I've had plenty of practice! I tried about 10 times the other night mountain-biking. I'm not impressed with this option. The bike was moving across the screen on a teeter-totter. Also tried it on a log ride at least another 5 times.

    This. It took me a while to get it, but that's what you have to do.

    I got it to work 3 times now, but can't anymore. I forgot how to change the resolution to 12 MP. Drama shot won't work on 169 and for whatever reason its stuck on the 6 MP 16:9 I need 12mp or 8mp to use all the shot and more features. But I can't remember how to change resolution in shot and more mode.
