How Easy it is to Use the Paper Shoot Camera

How Easy it is to Use the Paper Shoot Camera - Paper Shoot Camera

Whenever we post videos about the Paper Shoot Camera, we get a lot of questions regarding how to use our little camera and we’re here to say that, fortunately, it’s a very easy process and doesn’t require a ton of effort on your part. Here’s how you can easily take a picture or video and how to see everything you’ve taken once you’re done.   

How to Take a Picture 

To take a picture, all you have to do is choose a filter from the 4 options you have on the back of the camera. You'll then point and aim at the object you want to take a picture of, and then press the small shutter button on the front.


How to Take a Video

 To take a video, you’ll need either a small external power bank or a function card from our website. If you have an external power bank lying around, all you need to do is use the small cord that comes with your camera to connect your power bank to the camera. If you’d rather use the function card to simplify the process, you can purchase one on our website for only $10 and stick it inside the camera on the right side by the SD card. Once you’ve done the first step, you’ll be using the 3rd and 4th filters to take your videos. While you can’t use the filters to change the color of the videos like you can with pictures, the filters do have their own use when you use the function card or power bank. You’ll be using the 3rd filter to take a 10-second video with sound and the 4th filter will take a time-lapse video. For time-lapse videos, leave it on for 30 minutes and you’ll have a 10-second video at the end.


To See Pictures

The best part about the Paper Shoot Camera is that unlike a disposable, there are no added fees when it comes to seeing your pictures. All you have to do is click your SD card out of your camera and put it into your computer or an adapter and you have all of your pictures right in front of you.
