How to take time-lapse videos with iPhone or iPad

If you've ever seen a video of clouds rolling across a sky quickly, you're already familiar with the wonders of time-lapse captures. Photos are taken at intervals over time in order to put together a high speed video of sorts. If you have an iPhone 5s, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, or iPad Air 2, you can take time lapse videos as well! Better yet, the software behind the Camera app's time lapse mode is super smart and even chooses the best intervals possible for you. So shoot as long as you like, and the Camera app will take care of the rest!

How to quickly adjust camera exposure on iPhone or iPad

The built-in Camera app lets you not only tap to focus, but also swipe up or down to bias the exposure and make your photos brighter or darker. You might want to do this, for example, to reduce "noise", better capture a fast-moving target, or simply to better match your mood or the mood of the scene. You can bias exposure from -8 to +8, if f-stops, and best of all, it's easy to do!

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!
