“We’re confident we can capture the hearts and minds of consumers in the fast-moving market; with our smartphone camera technology and other convenient features.”
Taking group photos with friends or family is easier than ever thanks to the new Timer Helper feature. No longer is it necessary to guess how many seconds until the timer triggers the shutter.
