Pictar is working on sound waves. Sometimes, there are background apps that are
using the microphone of your smartphone and can disturb the Pictar's
functionality, or devices that are connected to your phone. Make sure to close
such applications and disconnect the devices (for instance - hearing aids that
connects to the phone).
check that your phone is not on "power saving mode" (can occur
automatically when the battery is low).

Pressing this button all the way takes a photo or starts video recording. But like a DSLR, it’s electronically calibrated to provide maximum sensitivity. A ‘half press’ of the button locks focus and exposure, allowing you complete control over your desired composition. Then once your framing is right, continue through to a full press to take your picture. Tip:Pictar’s shutter button allows you to take pictures with gloves on – perfect for extreme sports or in cold weather.
The zoom ring is located below the shutter release button, so now you don't need to pinch-and-zoom. You can use just one hand to turn the zoom ring to zoom in or out.
Clicking the zoom ring switches between the phone’s front and back camera – ideal for ‘selfie’ shots.
Advanced users can also re-program the zoom ring to control other settings; this can be done in the menu section (please click on this symbol). If you re-program it, you will need to use the conventional pinch-and-zoom method on your phone's screen.
Tip: Shooting one-handed in selfie mode? Click the zoom button to select the front-facing camera, then turn the zoom ring to get the perfect composition.
Is your picture looking too dark or too bright? Turning this wheel lets you change the brightness of your picture before shooting. Just like on a DSLR, the wheel changes exposure in 1/3 aperture steps for precise control, as displayed on the bottom of the iPhone screen.
Tip: In manual mode, the exposure compensation wheel allows control of ISO values.
The right side of the phone screen has a "Virtual Wheel" which allows you to alter different controls like flash modes, shutter speed, ISO and more. Just use your finger to select the different settings.
Switching between modes is done with the Smart Wheel.
The Virtual Wheel icons can by hidden by swiping them right. Swiping left with your finger, from the very right side of the screen, makes them appear again. A small blue arrow indicates where to swipe.
