Essential Camera makes it simple to capture, edit, and share great photos and video with your PH-1.

It includes several different, easy-to-use, modes and features, like Portrait Mode, Monochrome Mode, and more! And you can share them directly with friends and family or on social media—like Facebook, Instagram, and more—with just a few taps.

Essential Camera features:

• Tiny Planet mode (Beta): See your entire world in a whole new way! With Tiny Planet mode, you can easily capture, edit, and share 360-degree photos and videos right from the Essential Camera app. No third-party apps, necessary. *

• AutoHDR (High Dynamic Range): Automatically detects and captures HDR scenes. Recovers more shadows and highlights details—so you get the most natural photos possible without having to layer on a bunch of filters.

• Portrait mode: Create a shallow depth-of-field effect to make your subject (person or thing) stand out from the background! Tap to focus and adjust the amount of blur in real-time—so you can see what your shot will look like before taking it!

• Monochrome mode: Works with the dedicated monochrome sensor in your PH-1 to create rich black and white photos—so your pictures are vibrant with great low-light detail.

• Video recording: Record your videos in stunning 4K resolution at 30 frames per second (fps) or 1080p HD at 30fps or 60fps.

• Slo-mo video: Record slow-motion videos in 720p HD at 120fps.

• Edit: Auto-enhance, apply filters, crop, tilt or straighten, and even adjust light and color with an incredible amount of detail.

• Grid lines: Easily frame and take more striking photos and videos with 3 x 3, 4 x 4, and Golden Ratio grids (available in all modes).
