    I just got the s4 and I've been semi happy with it except the camera had surprised me abs key new down a great deal... every picture I've taken so far have all been flirty and it of focus...

    Please someone tell me there's a way your can change the way you take pictures by pressing another button on the camera(home button, bovine, etc) opposed to just on the screen...I'm really disliking this feature....

    If this isn't an option...any chances of it becoming one with an update???!!! I think it's a necessity esp for someone with small hands..even the iPhone is capable of this...

    Please someone help!!!

    Check wheather there is a transparent film stuck on the camera's lens...if there is then just peel it off...please...I think thry place it there to protct the lens during the manufacturing and shippiong stages....this may improve the quality of your photos.

    when in camera, go to settings logo, then go to the settings logo again. Make sure Anti-Shake is on, then Volume Key -- switch it to capture

    Also, turn on Voice Control in camera settings (then just say "Shoot" instead of pressing any button)

    You have to turn off "auto-night mode" to use anti shake.

    Its there. There is a setting to use the volume key as a zoom or to snap pic.

    You can also use the timer function to minimize camera shake. It can be set to OFF, 2, 5 or 10 seconds.

    I just ordered the iStabalizer XL phone mount (seen below). The XL model can handle up to the Note 2 in width. Will work great with my Slik mini tripod.
