Samsung Galaxy S3 Jelly Bean Missing Camera Features?

Acoording to: http://www.android.com/about/jelly-bean/

We are supposed to have these features in Jelly Bean

 

  • You can now swipe from the camera viewfinder to quickly review photos you've taken without having to leave the camera app. You can swipe back to the camera viewfinder to start snapping photos again.
  • When viewing photos in Gallery, you can pinch to zoom out to enter "filmstrip mode" and rapidly review photos. When viewing photos in filmstrip mode, you can swipe up or down to delete an individual photo. You can also undo the delete with a single tap.
  • When taking a photo, a new animation sweeps your photo off the screen. There is now a new paging animation when swiping between photos.
  • Camera features a new animation for switching between the front-facing and back cameras.
  • When focusing on an object in Camera, a new animation gives you visual feedback on your focus state.
  • Gallery features a new animation when selecting a photo from within the album view and back

I don't know. I noticed the same thing. For some reason they seem to be missing. If someone knows anything about this please let us know.

Yeah, not sure why they decided to exclude it

What a shame. I was looking forward to the new camera functions. Maybe XDA has a work-around. I'd hate to wait for the newer verision of Jelly Bean. Then again, we'll probably never see another update for the SG3 anyway.

I also do have this feature.  I noticed in the description of some of the features that they were only for 7" tablets.  Is this one of those features?

You might be right about tablet features only. Looking for more in info. But I did find this .m.samsung.com/us/article/galaxy-s-iii-update
Does not mention the camera features. Only way to check is find someone with a nexus or on different carrier and see if they have those features.

I don't think that this feature comes until Jellybean 4.2.  I didn't get the blink option on my Galaxy Nexus until after the 4.2 update.

Actually, I rooted my old Galaxy1 and installed Jelly Bean last Sept. The new features are there and work great.

Just found the blink unlock. It shows up after setting up facial unlock at least twice for extra security. Then the blink option shows up in setup.

Well, at least you're able to get into the camera program. Whenever I hit the Camera icon, it opens up the Camera program but it merely merely shows a 'Tips' dialog that won't go away regardless of how many times I hit the "OK'. Hitting any other button on the screen does nothing, and after a while Android tells me 'Camera isn't responding, do you want to close it?' and that's all she wrote.

That makes sense. I just figured blink would be an instant option when setting up facelock. Thank you for that.

Sorry to hear that Green, If that isn't the only issue, I would recommend going back into keis and doing a restore and then re-update. Don't forget to turn airplane mode on. That way the update process won't get any interruption. Could've been something went wrong if a text or something else tried to come thru. Hopefully that helps.
