iPhone camera features you must know

Last Updated :

iPhones are the most popular cameras on Flickr community, the reason behind is its extensive use and easy to use features. Your iPhone cameras really can make nice looking pictures if you know how to use it right. There are people who click a lot of pictures using the iPhone camera but only a few know how to put it to its best use. The best way to get the best out of your iPhone is to learn all its camera features. Your iPhone camera app is loaded with features, we know that it is almost impossible to master them all, but you can sure use the following. We have highlighted some your iPhone camera features, that you must know.

1. Shoot in burst mode : Burst mode is a very convenient way to take multiple shots of a subject. It takes one shot after the other with just a press of button. To activate it, just hold down the shutter button for about a second or two and then iPhone will start taking pictures one after the other. The number of photos that you click in burst mode depends on which iPhone and what iOS version you are using. Like iPhone 5S allows you to take 10 shots in a second.

2. Set focus and exposure setting: Exposure is one of the most important element in any kind of photography. Similarly in iPhone photography too, it holds an important place. On an iPhone you can simply set focus by tapping anywhere on the screen. If you don't do it, your iPhone will automatically take something in focus for you. So it is better to set focus yourself. There may come a time when auto focus results in blur and un-clear pictures, so better you adjust it before hand than depending on iPhone. In most cases tapping the screen where your main subject is will do the trick, but feel free to experiment!

3. Lock focus and exposure: If you are not into the habit of setting focus and exposure every time you click a picture with your iPhone, you can lock it once for all. Just tap & hold the screen where you want to set the focus and exposure for a second or two. A larger square will appear where your finger is along with a yellow AE/AF LOCK sign.

4. You can use volume up-down button or your earphones for a shutter release : The volume up-down buttons located on the side of your iPhone work brilliantly as shutter release.

5. Turn on the grid: those of you who know about "Rule-of-thirds" know what a grid is. However, if you not then a grid divides your screen in nine equal squares (consisting two horizontal and two vertical lines). The horizontal and two vertical lines that divide the screen in three equal parts.

PicBackMan does exactly what it's supposed to. It's quick and efficient. It runs unobtrusively in the background and has done an excellent job of uploading more than 300GB of photos to 2 different services. After having lost a lot of personal memories to a hard drive crash, it's nice to know that my photos are safe in 2 different places.

LOVE this program! Works better than ANY other program out there that I have found to upload thousands of pictures WITH SUB-FOLDERS to SmugMug! Thank you so much for what you do! :) #happycustomer

I pointed PicBackMan at a directory structure, and next time I looked - all the photos had uploaded! Pretty cool. I use SmugMug and while I really like it, the process of creating directories in is pretty laborious when you need to make 80+ at a time. This was a breeze. Thank you!
