How to lock focus in the Camera app for iPhone and iPad

The Camera app on your iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad comes with auto-exposure and auto-focus. That lets you get the proper balance and sharpness on most of your photos, most of the time. But sometimes whatever it is you're trying to photograph is too busy, too jittery, or otherwise too difficult for your camera to latch on to. When that happens you can try to focus and expose on an easier subject, lock that focus and exposure, move your camera, and then take your photo. It's called AE/AF Lock (auto-exposure/auto-focus lock) and it's especially good for kids, pets, macros with a lot of objects at different depths, and other challenging situations!

How to preview camera filters in real-time on your iPhone

The Camera app on your iPhone 5s can apply real-time filters to your photographs. That means you get to see their effects live in the preview screen, and make sure you like them, before taking your shot. Why filters? They're a great way to add some variety to your photos. While they aren't suited for every photo, they're definitely fun to play around with. Coming soon with iOS 8, you'll also be able to add third-party app filters to your photos, such as VSCO Cam and more!

How to use burst mode to capture all the action with your iPhone camera

The Camera app on your iPhone makes it easy to take photos. But what if things are moving? Jumping, blinking, dancing, fidgeting, flipping? Not only do you have to worry about avoiding motion blur, you want to make sure you capture the action at just the right moment — the high point of the slam dunk, the fullness of the splash, the cross-of the finish line, the impact of the moment. For that, there's burst mode!

How to quickly access your camera from the Lock screen on iPhone or iPad

The iPhone's iSight takes great photos under a wide range of conditions, but you still need to have it in your hands, ready to shoot, whenever the need arises.

It's not planned, it's not posed, but it's still incredibly important to you. That's where quick camera access comes in. Apple knows you may need to get to the Camera app in a flash, and they've built in a great way to get right to it!

How to quickly edit and share photos and videos from the camera app on iPhone and iPad

The Camera app on iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad is supposed to concern itself with capturing your pictures, and videos and leave the editing and sharing work for the Photos app. To bad nobody told the Camera app! In an effort to make your workflow faster, Apple lets you easily call up an embedded version of the Photo app right inside the Camera app. Pretty much all the features you need are right there for you, including cropping, red eye removal, auto-optimization, filters, trimming, AirDrop, messaging, social, AirPlay, and more. With iOS 8, third party filters, sharing options, and action extensions will be made available as well!

How to take a photo or shoot video using the volume up button with your iPhone or iPad

The Camera app on your iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad can take a picture or start a video with a simple tap of the big, round shutter button right on the screen. If you're trying to take a photo or shoot video one-handed, however, or even just depending on your position, even that big, round button can be out of reach. Luckily, Apple also lets you activate the shutter and take a picture or start recording with the volume up button.

iOS 8 adds third-party access to camera data via an API

Apple is adding over 4000 new APIs (Application Programming Interfaces) to iOS 8, and one with user-facing implications is a new camera API. The latest camera API will give third-party apps access to deeper hardware control of the camera, meaning you can install an app from the App Store that can handle manual control of exposure, white balance and more, as well as make non-destructive edits to photos that you've already taken.

How to use the panorama camera on your iPhone

The Camera app on the iPhone lets you capture panoramas — much wider, much higher megapixel photos than are otherwise possible with the built in iSight lens. By taking a video-like stream of successive frames, the iPhone can literally create single photo greater than the sum of its parts. You can take a "pano" from either left to right or right to left, and you can even rotate your iPhone and take one from up to down or down to up. With iOS 8, panoramas will also be coming to the iPad!
