If you want to have a better experience when you use the iPhone camera with the native application, today we bring you some tricks and settings that can give you a more comfortable experience . All this that we are going to teach you is activated in a very simple way and here we will explain it to you step by step.
The most quoted tricks
The iPhone in general, whatever the model it is, has a series of advantages when it comes to taking pictures that other smartphones don’t have, but beware, having a good tool is useless if we don’t know how to use it. For this reason, we are going to give you a series of very, very basic tips so that you can take advantage of your iPhone’s camera more than you are doing so far.
Take photos in 16:9 format
The first adjustment that we bring you is the possibility of taking photos in 16:9 with your iPhone. This format provides much more image quantity without sacrificing quality. It is very useful if we want more expanded photos, with more details and more panoramic views. To do this, we have to open the Camera app and we have to go to the central button that is on the opposite side of the shutter. If we open it, we will see a series of buttons. The one that interests us is the one that puts 4:3. Click on it and select the 16:9 option , and you will see how your photos can look even better.
By default, iPhone captures images in 4:3 and records video in 16:9. But thanks to this parameter, the photos we take in Photo mode will also be captured in 16:9. This setting does not apply to images captured in Portrait Mode, as these will still be in 4:3 format.
Filters go with everything
And we mean that literally. It does not matter if you have Live Photos activated, or the setting in 16: 9. The filters of the native iPhone camera are applied in all the adjustments that we make , if the mode that we have activated allows us to do so. That is why if you want to take photos in 16:9, and also add a filter to them, you will not have to choose between one thing or the other.
To activate the filters, we press the same upper icon as before, but this time we select the icon with three superimposed circles. This button opens a panel with various filters that we can apply to the photos we take with Photo Mode. As you can see, they are two very simple adjustments with which to make our photos even more ours.
How to save native Camera app settings
When we make changes to the settings of the Camera application, close it and open it again, the most likely thing is that everything we had touched has been restarted. And if we prefer to take photos in 16:9 format or with default filters, reactivating these settings can be cumbersome and take more time than necessary. But there are settings to prevent this from happening to us.
We have to go to Settings> Camera. And here we have several sections that interest us. The first of these is called Keep Settings. Here we have a menu with which we will have three options. Camera mode allows us to save the last mode with which we have used the app. For example, if we have used Portrait Mode, the next time the camera will open with Portrait Mode.
The most interesting setting is Creative Settings. Here the iPhone is allowed to save the last filters and proportions that we have used. In other words, if we have used the camera in 16:9 format and a certain filter, when we open it again, both configurations will appear again, and without having to open them again. Finally there is Live Photo. If we have deactivated Live Photo, the next time we open the camera, this mode will continue to be deactivated.
Two settings that can help us are Grid and Smart HDR. On the one hand, Grid adds the composition lines to the iPhone camera, so that they are always present when we open the app and we can better fit the images. For its part, intelligent HDR creates an automatic photo composition, so that the iPhone saves images with more color, brightness and quality.
