Question [Q] Galaxy S5 SM-G900F camera problem

Hi guys

been out to day and was taking pictures of my kids and was happy about the
picture quality so tryed to zoom in to get some better shot and it would not let me.

kept saying cannot zoom in or out in this mode, so tryed to change mode all i have is
auto, beauty face, and panorama modes icons.

also on the left hand side where the icons are i.e.

i do not have a icon that looks like a wheels cog in the bottom left hand side.

You sure you didn't have selective focus or HDR mode on? as with them enabled you can't zoom in/out.

Here are some screen shots of the camera screen.
As you can see only 3 modes.
And on the other no setting cog icon.

So how can I try different modes when I can't change them, and then the setting icon can't even use that.

I just want to get to use the camera to its full potential.

Thanks for any help guys.

That's strange. mine has the Settings cog. are you rooted? if you are maybe I can give you the camera apk to replace yours.
