Moto Z2 Force Camera Features

Sprint Product Ambassador

Phones, Photos, and Features with the Moto Z2 Force.


While traveling in Europe, I spent a lot of time on trains, planes, and busses looking at my new Moto Z2 Force and playing with all the settings and functionality.  Here are some of my favorite features of the duel-camera setup and some examples to help you see what they do.


Favorite Feature/Filter: Auto

My favorite feature with the Moto Z2 Force camera is actually the Auto filter. To access the filters, tap on the equalizer icon at the bottom of the image. The icon tab at the bottom shows the original image. The next icon is my favorite Auto icon. The image below is a picture I took of a street in Saint Milo France. Unfortunately the light sky over exposed the shops in the street. Using the Auto filter, it brightened the mid-tones so the shops are easier to see and the sky is not blown out. The second set of pictures show the fall colors. The auto filter adds a little more contrast and pops the color a little to better depict how it looked.

Other Filters:

Depending on what you are trying to capture or portray, there are several other filters that I didn’t use as often. Here are some examples of some of the other filters.

Camera Features:



Professional mode: Professional mode lets you manually change the ISO, shutter speed, white balance, and focus. Using the slide bars it is very easy to see the impact of the changes before you take the picture. I used this a lot with low-light environments.



True B&W: The True Black and White uses the second lens in the camera and captures a pure black and white image.

Depth enabled: The depth enabled feature is one of the most fun features to play with. The main use for this is to blur the background of your image without changing the aperture. However, you can also play around with turning the background black and white and even removing the background all together.

Panorama: The panorama works similar to other devices. The camera does a great job providing panorama tracks to follow as you capture your panoramic pictures.




Photo: The photo feature is for those of us that just like to point and shoot without worrying about ISO, shutter speed, or depth of field. This is the default setting for the device.


So what features and filters on the Moto Z2 Force camera do you like the best?
