1. To get started, launch the built-in camera app by tapping on the Camera icon from the Home or Apps screen.

2. While on the main camera app’s screen, tap the menu icon represented by three short horizontal lines located on the upper-rightmost corner. A side menu opens next. Here, you will see a number of items including the main controls for settings, show gridlines, brightness, and more.

3. Tap the Settings control or Gear icon to proceed. Another window will launch, highlighting the camera app settings and features.

4. To reset the camera, scroll down to the bottom of the list and then, tap the option to Restore default settings.

5. A pop-up menu appears at the bottom. Read the message and then tap OK to confirm.

All custom camera settings and other alterations to camera modes and other features will then be erased. 

At this point, the camera application settings are already back to their defaults. By then  you can start re-enabling necessary features and adjust the settings accordingly to achieve the desired video and images quality outputs.
