All Apple users love their iPhones for a good camera. Indeed, such a camera can only be envied by other phone manufacturers. Only Samsung, which is also famous for the good performance of its lenses, can compete with Apple in this. However, are you sure that you are using all the features of your camera? After all, there is so much useful information in the settings that most do not even read. Don't worry, we've sorted them out for you, so stay here to get a new batch of knowledge about the capabilities of your iPhone.
How to eliminate the reflection of the iPhone's front camera?
The front-facing mirror mode will annoy virtually all iPhone users who like to take selfies and promote these photos on social networks. And almost everyone is familiar with this feeling when you admire your image in the camera and freeze in anticipation of a cool picture, and as a result you get a mirrored and very unattractive photo. Therefore, a large number of people take selfies immediately in the Instagram application to prevent reflection, while losing the quality of the picture. Here are two ways to turn off the "reflection" mode on your iPhone and forget about the look of your crooked face forever.
For the first method you need to go to the "camera", take a selfie and open it in the "gallery". Next, in the lower left corner, click on the "change" button and then press in the upper left corner to mark two arrows and two triangles. This feature will turn your photo back.
The second method will permanently turn off the reflection mode and you do not need to edit each photo separately. To do this, go to "settings", select "camera" and then disable the option "front mirror camera". Now you can easily take selfies in good quality directly on your iPhone.
What camera settings might you not include in your iPhone?
Go to "settings", select "camera" and let's understand what can be configured here.
"Save settings" in iPhone camera settings
- Camera mode:
The last mode of your camera that you have included will be activated: photo / video / portrait, etc.… If you often use the same shooting mode, this function is created just for you.
Photo / video exposure settings will be stored here. If you are in the same location for a while, you can turn this mode on for a while so as not to bother each time again.
- Exposure compensation:
It will always show the video adjustment indicator instead of auto cancel.
- Live Photo:
By default, live photo mode is always activated. The developers took care of the final result of your photo and developed a photo with a fragment of the video, in order to choose the best angle. The only thing is that in poor visibility, this mode will further worsen the quality, so in this case it is better to go to the settings and turn off this mode.
Grid mode in your iPhone's camera
This tool allows you to select a place in the frame to create a successful composition. Works by the so-called "squares" that appear on the display during camera operation. With them you can choose the perfect angle and prevent a crooked horizon in your photo.
Video recording mode in the iPhone camera
It is logical to assume that the higher the video quality and frame rate per second, the more interesting the video you will get as a result. It will be much smoother and with a higher resolution. But there is one important detail, if you choose "4K, 60 frames / sec", then the amount of your memory such a video will take up a lot. For example, one minute of such a video will cost you four hundred megabytes of memory. Therefore, if the memory of your iPhone is 64 gigabytes, it is better for you to forget about this idea and activate the optimal mode "1080-r HD, 60 frames / sec".
It is also important to pay attention to the criteria of your camera if you shoot a video for editing in a duet with material shot on another camera. After all, then the editor will have to synchronize these videos together.
Also pay attention to the settings below (Auto frequency (low light). Your iPhone will automatically adjust the frame rate to improve video quality in low light conditions.
As well as the mode "Lock camera modes", when activated during video recording, you can add a magnification of two and six times with digital zoom, but switch to a super wide angle will not work.
The format mode of your iPhone camera
Many of you may not be aware of this mode. However, it is extremely important if you have to edit your video.
Apple has taken care of saving your memory and has created two formats "highly efficient" and "most compatible". The first format will allow you to take high-quality photos, but only within the Apple ecosystem, that is, on Windows devices, these images may not even be read. Therefore, if you mount it on Apple devices, you can safely turn on the "high performance" mode.
IPhone camera mode "out-of-frame photo capture"
When you activate this mode, the system notifies you that the "high-efficiency" mode will be automatically enabled, because only "off-frame photo capture" works with it. It works for both photos and videos. This is needed when you take a photo, then go to the gallery to look at the result and an icon appears in the upper right corner, in the form of a search engine with a star. It indicates that along with this frame there is a certain area that was taken with a wide-angle camera. This is done so that you can use the "auto" mode, which will even out the horizon in your photo or other deformation of the frame.
By the way, this feature will be available only 30 days after the photo is created, after which the iPhone will delete the extra areas of your photo. Accordingly, the "auto" mode will no longer be available.
Smart HDR feature on your iPhone
HDR allows you to draw any color in the photo: make the sky blue and the trees green. That is, it makes a contrast between different elements in the frame to make the photos look contrasting and at the same time natural.
We would recommend that you always keep this feature turned on, as it greatly simplifies photo processing.
Interesting camera modes for your iPhone that you may not know
Set up a photo in the iPhone camera
With swype, you can completely configure the flash mode, because previously this feature was partially automatic and worked by default. The same goes for Live mode.
Also here you can choose the size of viewing images in 4: 3 or 16: 9 format. Someone may need such photos in video format, for example, as the cover of YouTube.
There is not much to say about the timer, because, apparently, everyone has known it for a long time. You simply set a time that delays the shooting process.
No effects anywhere, especially in updated versions of iOS. They are used to make a photo more interesting. Unfortunately, the basic filters of the iPhone are far from ideal, but also work well if you do not have time for good processing, and you need to have a photo on hand right away. Then you can click on the finished photo, go to the "edit" option and quickly select from an even larger range of filters the one that best complements your photo.
Video settings in the iPhone camera
There are also settings that can be enabled. Active flash settings are now present via swype.
In the upper right corner, it is finally enough to click on the mark "4K" and switch the mode to HD, click on "30" and switch the frame rate from 30 to 60. And this is thanks to the target audience of Apple, which has long asked developers to add these modes to the camera . Now you don't need to go to the camera settings again to change these settings.
Portrait mode in the camera of your iPhone
In portrait mode, your background is blurred, allowing you to change the lighting. In studio lighting, your skin will look paler. With contour lighting, your facial features will seem sharper. Stage lighting will make the background black.
Panorama mode in the camera of your iPhone
Panorama mode allows you to take wide photos. It is best to take such pictures with a stabilizer, so that the final result is high quality and without silting. Panoramas can be done both horizontally and vertically.
The last useful tip for setting up an iPhone camera
Go to photo settings and go to the bottom. There is an option to "transfer data to a MAC or PC". And you have the choice to either transfer the data automatically or transfer the originals. If you choose to transfer originals, in some cases, when you connect to a computer, the data transfer process may be complicated. If you choose automatic, the probability of a faster process is much higher.
