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, Black and White 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: 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. *

• 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!
• Black and White 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.
