Camera Widget?

Camera Widget?

Previous Z phones had a camera Widget I could add to the home screen where I could add up to 4 shortcuts for different camera modes (4K, timeshift etc...)

Is this camera Widget not available on the Z5 Premium? It takes forever to navigate to 4K mode because no shortcut can be added.

But Bandoler via seems better, right now, to work properly I think with latest Camera 2.0 Winking Face

Yeah that's true, can't find it on my Z5 too. Not sure if it was there before Camera v2 update though.

Re: Camera Widget?

Hi Guys,

 

Try this to see if you can find it.

 

Tap on any part of the empty space on your home screen > Widget.

See if there is an Option named at Shortcuts > Camera > Select any of the camera mode you want. Then it should add the shortcuts mode to your homescreen.

 

Hope this is what your looking for or something similar to this.

Looks like a viable solution, managed to get 4K shortcut on my homescreen.

Re: Camera Widget?

The Solution by Bandolero doesn't work for me. I can only add a shortcut for camera, at effect and time lapse. There is no 4k option on my Z5 Premium
