7 camera tricks from Xiaomi and MIUI to take better photos

Xiaomi Redmi camera tricks

The Xiaomi Camera application is not characterized as being the most intuitive in the Android world. This is due, in part, to mimicking the aesthetics of Apple's iPhone. Fortunately, the application that we can find in MIUI 10 and 11 is much more complete than that of iOS, and is usually the same in all Xiaomi models. For this reason we have made a compilation of several Xiaomi camera tricks to get the most out of the mobile photography.

Since we will use the native application of MIUI 10, the majority of camera tricks that we see below are compatible with much of the Xiaomi mobile catalog. Xiaomi Mi A1, A2, A3, A2 Lite, Redmi Note 4, Note 5, Note 6 Pro, Note 7, Note 8, Mi 8, Mi 9, Mi 9T, Mi 9T Pro, Redmi 5, Redmi 6, Redmi 7

Use the volume buttons as camera buttons

Although today no cell phone has buttons dedicated to the camera, MIUI allows the use of the volume buttons to perform different actions within the application

If we click on the hamburger style menu that appears in the upper right corner and then on Settings we can see an option with the name of Volume button actions. Within this we can configure the buttons as a zoom wheel, as a trigger and as an actuator of a back account.

Record videos with better quality

Changing the recording quality of a video is as simple as clicking on the indicator shown in the top bar of the Cmara application. The latest updates of MIUI 10 include, however, an option that allows us further improve the final quality thanks to the new H.265 coding protocol.

In this case, it is enough to access the camera application settings in Video mode and click on video encoder. In the menu that will appear next we will select H.265 High performance.

Remove the watermark of Xiaomi in the photos

By default Xiaomi stamps its particular watermark on the photos taken with the brand's mobiles. To remove the mark in question we will have to refer again to the camera settings, and more specifically to the Watermark option.

Within the latter we will deactivate the option Watermark of the device. We can also opt for a watermark with date and time or a custom mark.

Activate (or deactivate) the Beauty effect of photographs in Portrait mode

The Portrait mode of the Xiaomi camera applies by default a Beauty effect that smoothes the imperfections of the face. Luckily, we can disable or make this mode more noticeable by clicking on the magic wand icon.

Then we can adjust the level of beauty to apply, as well as image filters that modify the color of the photo.

Or resort to the effects of study

A novelty that some Xiaomi phones have recently included in the Portrait mode is the so-called "study effects" or "studio filters". It is roughly a series of effects that play with the phone lenses to change the lights of the photographs and simulate a professional study.

To apply these effects, just click on the circular icon that will be shown in the lower right corner of the application next to the Beauty filter. Once the photo is taken, we can adjust the effects to our liking.
