How to use ToF sensor in the Galaxy Note 10+

by September 24, 2019 0 comments

Samsung recently launched the Galaxy Note 10+ the company’s most powerful Note device ever. The smartphone comes with a quad-camera setup consisting of a 12MP primary sensor, a 12MP sensor with f/2.1 52mm telephoto lens (capable of 2x optical zoom), a 16MP sensor with f/2.2, 12mm ultra-wide lens, and lastly, there is a Time of Flight (TOF) 3D VGA camera.

The Time of Flight (ToF) camera on the Galaxy Note 10+ can judge depth and distance of the objects in the frame to take your photography to new levels. The ToF sensor can also be used to measure distance, effectively counting the amount of time it takes for a reflected beam of light to return to the camera sensor. In the Galaxy Note 10+, the ToF camera can be used with both Live focus video and Quick Measure, letting you add more creative flair and get information in a way you’ve never seen before.

ToF in Live Focus Video

In the Live focus video, you will be able to blur out the background in real-time as you take a video. The camera also allows you to swap between foreground and background focus with ease, to switch up the focus with a tap. The Live focus video is available on both the front and rear cameras, so simply open the Camera app and swipe to Live focus video to try your hand at movie direction.

ToF in Quick Measure

With Quick Measure, the camera acts as a 3D camera, judging width, height, area, volume, and more when you put an object in the frame. Quick Measure is a preloaded app on the Galaxy Note 10+, so open the app and put an object in focus to get a real-time measurement right on your screen. Keep in mind that the Quick Measure app is separate from the Camera app.
