Xiaomi has hidden options in its camera: so you can activate it 1

The Xiaomi Cmara native app usually gives users some headaches. It is not usually as intuitive as other proposals, but that does not mean that it does not have powerful functions that allow us to play with our creativity and take good photographs.

We have already mentioned a series of tricks that you can apply to take better photos in Xiaomi, and now we will tell you a secret. There is hidden functions in the MIUI camera that you can activate by following a couple of steps.

And as we are talking about the native Xiaomi app, these hidden camera options should be available for most of the brand's phones with MIUI 10 and MIUI 11.

How to activate hidden camera functions

A detail to keep in mind is that these options are experimental features, so they will change over time. Depending on the model of your Xiaomi it is possible that you have all the experimental functions of the moment or only some.

To bring these functions to life and appear in the Camera Settings, you just have to follow these steps, which you can perform from mobile, or if you prefer from a computer.

Assuming you want to do the process from the mobile, open a File Manager and go to Main Storage (in case you have an SD card) or Internal Memory, and select the DCIM >> Camera folder.

Inside the Camera folder create an empty file with the name "lab_options_visible" (without the quotes).

In addition to the normal configuration options, a series of new functions appear. The images are from a Redmi Note 7, so the functions that appear on your mobile may be different. Also, approximately 10 additional functions are added.
