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. Sometimes that's when you least expect it. Sometimes that's when you see something spectacular or your child does something amazing. 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 can be used too!

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 or iPad

The Camera app on the iPhone and iPad 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 stitch together a 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.

Lensbaby takes to Kickstarter with new iPhone 'sweet spot' lens

Lensbaby has some new iPhoneography gear up on KickStarter and it's called the Sweet Spot or the Creative Focus lens... or the LM-10. Or something. But naming consistency aside what Lensbaby is offering is a single, tight area of focus surrounded by MASSIVE blur. Whether you find that directs the eye to exactly where you want it to be, or just annoys you no end will likely depend on whether you view the Sweet Spot as art or novelty. Either way, if it appeals to you and your photographic sensibilities, you can back it now!

How to use the HDR camera on your iPhone or iPad

The Camera on your iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad lets you take high dynamic range (HDR) photos. HDR involves taking a series of photos in rapid succession, at least one of which is under exposed and at least one of which is over exposed. Those photos are then all combined resulting in a single, unified image that shows details both in the shadow and the light. The results are landscapes that aren't lost to darkness and skies that aren't all blown out. Apple has provided an HDR mode on the iPhone for years, and more recently has provided not only an HDR mode for the iPad, but an automatic HDR mode for the iPhone 5s.
