  1. I installed the update for 4.1.2 but now the cartoon mode is missing? Did Samsung remove it from latest update?

    1. Hi Dara Vuong,
      Thanks for coming.
      While you're on shooting mode, try to scroll down and you should see this option there.
      Hope this helps :)

    2. Hi Dara,

      I also cannot find the cartoon mode any longer. When I open the shooting mode menu and scroll, cartoon is no longer there. Did you ever resolve?

  2. I also cannot find the cartoon mode. When I open the shooting mode menu and scroll, cartoon is no longer there. Does anyone know how to get it back?

  3. I think they removed cartoon mode. I also cannot find the cartoon mode.

  4. Hi Dara, Gary P, and Bugs.
    Thanks for coming here.
    Also I'm so sorry for late answer.
    I Just figured out about cartoon shot mode in Galaxy S3 with the Jelly Bean is no longer available. I've seen this in t-mobile website. But, you may have to take a look at the Effect option in Camera apps, there is new effect named Cartoonify. I don't know exactly whether it will give you the same result as when you use cartoon mode or not, but it's not hurt if you try this (if available in your phone) then let me know what the result is.
    Hope this helps :)

  5. Why would they get ride of the cartoon mode though. I still don't understand.

    1. Hi Richards' Family,
      Thanks for coming.
      While you're using the auto mode, try to take a look at the camera effects, there should be a cartoon effect available. I think it's the reason why the cartoon mode is removed.

  6. How do I program a cartoon camera myself?
