So, let's use the camera of Galaxy Z Flip3 5G. The Galaxy Z Flip3 5G is also characterized by having a 12-megapixel ultra-wide-angle lens and a wide-angle lens, but the biggest feature is that it can be folded vertically.

The default camera app's selfie mode also supports folding, and when folded, the image display position slides as shown below.

When folded vertically, it stands on its own like when using a smartphone stand, and the bending angle can be adjusted steplessly, so you can make a video call just by popping it on the desk and making a slight angle as shown below. ..

Since you can easily adjust the angle, you can easily check the form such as muscle training.

It is said that it is especially important to perform muscle training in the correct form, but if you are living alone, even if you want to check the form, no one will check it, or you will be lying on the ground. There may not be a mirror that captures from the to the toes, but with the Galaxy Z Flip 3 5G, you can change the camera angle while looking at yourself, record the movie, and post it on SNS.

In the case of photos, there are timer functions for 2 seconds, 5 seconds, and 10 seconds, and the aspect ratio can be selected from 3: 4, 9:16, 1: 1, and 9:22. In the case of video, the aspect ratio is 9:16, 16: 9, 1: 1, 9:22, and the image quality is 'UHD (3840 x 2160) / 60fps', 'UHD / 30fps', 'FHD (1920 x 1080)'. You can choose from '60fps', 'FHD / 30fps', and 'HD (1280 x 720) / 30fps'.

One of the points that I found useful was 'selfie from an angle looking up'. If you take a selfie from an angle you look up at, you will see a small face and long legs, so it will be a 'selfie that can make a difference'. The following is taken from the front with the Galaxy Z Flip3 5G on the table on the left side, and from the angle looking up with the Galaxy Z Flip3 5G on the floor on the right side.

If you want to take a picture of yourself with an ordinary smartphone, it is troublesome to fix the angle, and especially when you are outdoors, there is no smartphone stand, or you can put something on the back side and tilt it. Even so, there are times when you don't have something that feels good, or you even want to say, 'I can't take a selfie that fits my whole body.' On the other hand, with the Galaxy Z Flip3 5G, you can easily take a selfie just by placing it around it.

Stepless tilt adjustment supports such selfies. There are many devices that claim stepless adjustment, but when you actually use these devices, the stepless adjustment mechanism is not fixed and may shift slightly from the position where you thought it was stopped. On the other hand, the stepless adjustment of the Galaxy Z Flip3 5G is very excellent in that the tilt is firmly fixed at the desired position just by releasing your hand.

It is also convenient that you can quickly shoot with the main lens on the cover display mounted on the back. Double-tap the power supply with the main unit closed to start the camera app, then tap the cover display to start the 2-second countdown. A preview is displayed on the cover display, so you can take a selfie with the main camera when it is closed.

Of course, with the 12-megapixel ultra-wide-angle and wide-angle twin-lens main camera, you can shoot like a normal smartphone. Like the sideways folding smartphone ' Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3 5G ', it also has a meal mode, single take, and explosive face recognition.

Regarding zoom, it is digital zoom only, 0.5x or less.
