How to take a photo with the iPhone volume button... or headphones!
With iOS 5, Apple has added the ability to take photographs using the Volume up button. It's a great feature, especially for times when it's awkward or impossible to use the virtual buttons on the iPhone - or iPod touch or iPad - screen. Here's how it works.
- Launch the Camera app for the Home screen
- Frame the picture you want to take using the live preview
- Press the Volume up to activate the camera shutter and take a picture.
Bonus: Since headphones also have a volume up bottom, if you're using them with your iPhone - or iPod touch or iPad - you cam use them as a remote shutter!
So camera enthusiasts, is this a big deal for you or just a nice to have? Will it change the way you take pictures with your iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad?
