Samsung Fascinate :: Switch Camera To Front Face Mode?

Sep 17, 2010

So I am curious what the deal is with the, what appears to be a front facing camera on this phone? I just got it today because my Blackberry Storm decided it didnt want to live any longer.

If any of you have any info on what exactly that is if it isnt a camera, or if it is indeed a camera, how do you switch it to front face mode?

If you could only choose one of these, which would you have chosen for the Fascinate? (Obviously it would be best to have both).

Samsung Fascinate :: Getting A Front Facing Camera

Sep 23, 2010

just went in to the verizon store to see why my girlfriends fascinate(i have an incredible ) wouldn't update. here's the conversation:

guy: it was pushed out to the first 1000, but things went wrong so they pulled it back(talking about the update i500.DI01)

us: ok so we shouldn't be worrying?

guy: no. but you'll get it sometime next week. then you'll get one the week after(didn't say what it would include) and then there will be one in november that will activate the front facing camera.

us: wait, what?

He showed us the 3 little dots on the top of the phone(sensors and i guess a camera).

He said that he talked to a samsung rep yesterday in the store and this is what he told him. the guy actually has a samsung fascinate and showed us so i'm going to believe him.

If you look closely at the 3 dots, the one on the left is alone. the one(s) on the right kinda have two different colors(light sensor and proximity sensor) so i still am going to believe him.

Samsung Fascinate : Access Panorama Mode From Scene Menu In Top Left / Camera Tips

Sep 9, 2010

Here are a few tips with the Fascinate camera:

1. You can access Panorama mode from the Scene menu in the top left. With Panorama mode... you will be guided by a green box, when you get close to take the next snapshot, move very slowly... especially when the green box is almost centered on your screen. This will produce better pictures with less blur.

2. Turn on Anti-shake and Auto-contrast in the settings menu. Turn on Grid if you'd like extra help with taking better photos.

3. Long press the shutter button to auto focus before taking the photo. It's a two-stage button that will take a little bit to auto focus, but it's better than not doing it before taking a photo.

Are you able to use the front facing camera to take a pic of yourself? I'm not an ego maniac, lol, just an idiot I guess. One more question, is there any other way using the stock programs to assign a picture to a contact without having to use the phone's own camera? i.e. linking a pic to contact from facebook or from the sd card?

Samsung Fascinate :: Fascinate Camera Photos Gallery

Nov 14, 2010

For everyone who has questions regarding the quality of the Fascinate's camera, I propose this thread be sticky'd so that everyone has one thread to view and/or admire the quality of the shots from various forum members. These shots have to be unprocessed though! Be honest.I'm an avid photographer who loves his Fascinate and all the tricks it can do. I thought of something on the drive home last night, and this is my first contribution.The quality is pretty damn good, not too much noise considering the picture was taken in the dark. I loved how the picture came out. I'll try getting a broader sweep of the needle next time, but that involves revving the car.For those of you who want similar shots, place the camera into night shot mode. This involves a very very steady hand, or a nice stable surface. From a few trial shots, the camera's shutter speed in night shot mode is still pretty fast from what I saw. If you want similar effects like the photo below, I suggest taking the picture right before the action you want happens. Granted, that is no easy task sometimes.

This picture is another one of my favorite shots. The camera happened to set the shutter speed perfectly for a rolling shot. This was taken behind my window, so the quality isn't as good as could be. I'm extremely happy with the shot though.Oh and as a disclaimer, both pictures have been compressed due to Facebook's uploader The actual file looks much nicer IMHO of course

General :: Samsung Fascinate Stuck In Recovery Mode

Mar 7, 2012

I rooted my phone a couple weeks back. I backed up my apps with titanium pro and downloaded ROM manager. I clicked "reboot into recovery mode" from ROM manager and the phone went into recovery.

I am now stuck. I have four options:
1. reboot system now
2. apply update from SD card
3. wipe data/factory reset
4. wipe cache partition

I tried option one and clicked the button on the right side of the phone (the "enter" button), but nothing happens. In fact, none of the options do anything. seems like the phone isn't recognizing the enter button.

I have not flashed clockwork mod recovery. I think it probably requires some type of reboot but i don't know the steps.

Also, how do I get news feeds on my Fascinate? I don't see a News Feed widget option like I did on my Droid X.

Samsung Fascinate :: Apps Closing When Phone Goes Into Sleep Mode

Sep 30, 2010

Until yesterday if I had an app like Pandora or ESPN Radio playing/running when the screen kicked off the app would keep playing. However, now when the phone goes to sleep everything else gets shut off. I have not altered anything myself per se. Even uninstalled a few apps like AutoKiller [which I had installed for weeks and everything worked fine with it on and installed] but the problem persists and remains. This really perplexes me as I want/need these apps to play with the screen off like they did before. For the life of me I don't know why this is; nor can I find anything in settings to change.

Samsung Fascinate :: Battery Drain - Cant Get Camera App To Close

Nov 1, 2010

I've had my Fascinate for a week and am having some trouble - actually, lots of trouble with it. Any suggestions are welcome:

1. At night I close out all running programs except Zeam - which I'm using as a home replacement since LauncherPro doesn't play nicely with the Fascinate (too much lag). When I close down I have about 90% left on my battery, in the morning, the phone is dead, battery drained. I typically wake up to about 5 emails and no other notifications so it's not processing a ton of incoming data. I can plug it in at night, but the standby time is supposed to be 312 hours. Am I doing something wrong?

2. I can't get the camera app to close. I sometimes have to pull the battery in order to get it to close. I try hitting the home key and get no response, the back key yields nothing, and the power key won't turn it off. The camera remains functional as I try each of these keys. Even after hitting the power key I can immediately take a picture.

3. GPS won't get a lock. I know this is a known problem, but is it a problem on every device, or is it hit and miss?

I really love the Fascinate's form factor and gorgeous screen, but I'm struggling with whether or not to trade for the Droid X before my 30 days are up. The home key lights, lack of text editing assistance (via trackball, trackpad, or on screen software), lack of LED notification light, GPS issues, and lag are making me lean towards the X. I had an X when they first came out and I never quite got used to the size of it. It never felt comfortable in my hand. But the phone itself worked great. I'd prefer not to have to root my phone to get it to work properly.
