New features allow you to take pictures faster and control exposure more easily. They can also help you stay still while taking pictures in night mode. All these improvements make it easier to use the “Camera” application.
If you need a step-by-step guide on the new features of the iOS 14 camera, please watch the video below.
iOS 14 adds a guide to night mode
If you want to take great night mode photos, you must keep your phone as still as possible. In iOS 14, there are now some guides to help you stabilize your phone while capturing handheld night mode photos.
If you move the iPhone too much, a pair of crosshairs (one yellow and one white) will appear on the screen. Then, you can adjust the way you hold the iPhone until the two crosshair guides are aligned. As a result, the camera will be more stable and able to take clearer pictures.
The new night mode guide is reminiscent of the crosshair guide that pops up when shooting from top to bottom.
Mirror your selfie
When taking a selfie, the iPhone will reverse the photo to make text and other content readable. However, if you prefer to take selfies with selfies, iOS 14 can help you.You can now. If there is text on the shirt, it will be displayed backwards like a mirror image.
It is worth mentioning that Android phones like Huawei have mirrored selfies for many years, and this is in the contest of “which operating system is the first”.
To enable mirrored selfies on iPhone, go to Set value, camera Then open it under the “Composition” section Front camera.
The great thing is that it can be used for both photos and videos. In other words, the real-time preview on the screen will not be mirrored. Therefore, if you want to use the selfie camera for makeup, you will find yourself turned over until you record a video or take a photo.
iOS 14 adds an exposure compensation dial to the “Camera” app
In iOS 13, adjusting the brightness of the picture to be taken can be troublesome. This is because the focus and exposure are locked in a small yellow square, which will pop up when you tap the screen. The yellow square is called the AF/AE frame (autofocus/auto exposure).
If you want to override and change the exposure, tap the brightness icon on the right side of the AF/AE frame, and then drag the icon on the screen up or down. It’s painful to use because it’s so small: I find myself doing these tiny taps and drags to get the brightness I want, and it ends up feeling like a dog scratching on the door.
In iOS 14, there is a new exposure compensation dial that can solve all these problems and make it easier to adjust the brightness of the photo. When you open the camera tool drawer above the shutter button, you will see a new exposure compensation icon, which is a circle with plus and minus signs in the middle. Tap the icon to open the watch face. Then slide the dial left or right to increase or decrease the exposure. Apple even marked the exposure value number on the turntable, just like a mirrorless or DSLR camera.
When the exposure dial is turned on, a tiny light meter will appear at the top left of the display. As you make adjustments, you can view the changes in progress. If you click on the micro meter, it will also display EV.
This makes it easy to adjust the brightness of the photo without scratching all your fingers.
Faster continuous shooting performance in iOS 14
Another great feature is that you can take photos continuously faster. When you are not in continuous shooting mode, iOS 14 provides less delay between capturing one photo and letting you take another photo immediately. You can compare side by side with iOS 13 on the left and iOS 14 on the right below. iOS 14 is faster.
In iOS 14 Beta, it is turned on by default, but if you turn it off and need to enable the feature, please go to Set valueAnd then camera.You will find Prioritize faster shooting at the bottom.
iOS 14 allows you to use the volume up button to take burst photos
Currently in iOS 13, when you press and hold any volume button, it will record a Quick Take video. Just hold down the button and the iPhone will record the video.
In iOS 14, you can remap the volume up button to take a series of photos while holding down the button. As long as you hold down the volume up key, the continuous photo shooting will continue.
To enable this feature, go to Set value, camera Then open Use volume up to burst.
