Explanation of the functions:



The flash when taking pictures serves as an additional light source. It makes sense to use the flash in backlit situations, because there the flash helps to illuminate the image evenly.


HDR is a feature of the camera app. The camera takes several pictures in succession. The software then merges the captured images into a single photo. The result is images with optimal exposure, more details and strong contrasts. When taking pictures of landscapes, the HDR function can be very helpful.


AI is an automatic mode that detects scenes such as landscapes, portraits and objects. AI mode adjusts the camera settings to the detected scene or object. This allows you to take better photos.


The camera filter filters out unwanted parts. As an example there is the black and white filter

Explanation of the different modes:


Through the picture mode, you have the possibility to record and save a point in time.


Through the video mode you have the possibility to record and save a time period.

Night Shot:

With the help of the night shot mode, you can take photos even in low ambient light. The recording may take a few seconds longer.

Wide Angle:

Wide angle means that the camera has a large angle of view, as a result, the camera captures a larger section of the image. This mode is advantageous if you want to take a picture of a landscape, for example. 


In portrait mode, a depth-of-field effect is created by the camera. Portrait mode allows you to take photos where the focus is on the subject. The background remains out of focus.

Professional mode:

Within the professional mode, you can customize many photo parameters. Such as the white balance or the ISO value.


In panorama mode, a scene is photographed section by section. Finally, the shots are combined to ultimately create a wide and seamless photo.


Using the GIFs mode, you can easily create gifs via the camera app.

Explanation GIF: GIF stands for Graphics Interchange Format and is a special form of graphics. Often, a GIF file is an animated image.

Slow Motion:

When recording video in slow motion mode, the video is played back at a greatly slowed down speed.


When a video is recorded in timelapse mode, the video plays back at a greatly accelerated speed.

Code Scanner:

Within your Gigaset camera app, you can scan QR codes while using the Code Scanner. 

Explanation QR code: The QR code is the two-dimensional version of the barcode. A wide range of information can be transferred quickly via the QR code scan.
