If you are the lucky owner of a brand new Samsung GALAXY Note II then you need to check out our Camera Features Walkthrough and Tips video below, which gives you an overview of how to get the best snapshots with your Samsung smartphone.

One of the best things about the Samsung GALAXY Note II is the image quality you get with the eight-megapixel auto focus camera and photography features, with pics looking superb on the Note II's 5.5-inch HD Super AMOLED screen.

Capturing, editing and sharing your images have never been easier than it is with the S Pen. And the front-facing camera allows for great self-portraits and crystal clear video calling.

The auto focus camera means you don't need to tap the image to get things perfectly clear. Everything is done automatically. But if you do want to play around with the focus point and experiment with different effects, simply tap to move the box to where you want it.

There is a raft of useful image capturing features that Samsung has crammed into the GALAXY Note II, so check out our walkthrough in the above video to learn more about how to make the most of your snaps.

Simply hold down the shutter button to take up to 20 shots in quick succession.

Face and smile detection means you'll never get bad photos of friends and family again. The sensor locks onto the faces of your subjects and detects whether they are smiling, as well as ensuring that everyone is in focus.

Having trouble taking photos after dark? With the GALAXY Note II you can now capture incredible images in vibrant detail, even in the most challenging lighting conditions, thanks to its low light functionality.

Create stunning landscape shots with the Panorama Feature. Simple move the GALAXY Note II with the panorama you want to take and voila!

Finally, there are also some really useful camera features to make it easier to share your favourite pictures. Share Shot can send pictures via Wi-Fi to nearby GALAXY devices and Buddy Photo Share automatically recognizes friends and family in the frame to quickly connect with them via email, phone and social networks.
