- Click on this circle and swipe to any side and you can see 2 circles, one yellow and other white.
- Now you can move these 2 circles to different points and have different exposure point and focus point to your photos.
Floating camera button
We may find it difficult to tap on the camera shutter button in the camera in some cases. Most frequently when using the phone using a single hand to take photos. Xiaomi solves this issue by providing us an option to use a floating camera button.

Volume button options
Xiaomi allows us to use the volume button for different uses of our choice other than shutter button for taking pictures. We can change the volume control button to zoom in/zoom out option, shutter button or volume up/down key.
To change these go to camera settings > volume button functions.
Real-time filters for videos
Xiaomi allows us to take 10s videos with real-time filters. Even though this feature is not available for longer videos, it works fine for all the social media people out there.
