i phone 6 cameraWith every device that Apple creates and releases there seem to be more and more new and improved functions.  However the cameras that are included in the iPhones have been left behind until the iPhone 6 was released.  The iPhone 6 has been rated as the best smartphone camera available.  Of course with new technology there is also a learning curve.  Keep reading to learn tips and tricks to using this new camera successfully.

Manually Change Your Exposure

If you find that you are taking a picture of something that is a little dark or even a little bright you will find that with the new camera on the iPhone 6 this will not be a problem.  There is a new manual exposure control option available.  The first thing that you will need to do is to tap the area on the picture that will be considered the main area of the photo.  This will turn the exposure on.  After the photo has been taken if the camera did not correctly guess what level of exposure was needed you can make the needed adjustments simply dragging your finger up and down on the screen.  It is as simple as that.

Timer Mode

How many times have you tried to take a group photo or even a photo of yourself only to have the picture turn out terrible because you and your friends were not ready yet?  The iPhone 6 camera now has a new timer mode.   When the camera reaches the end of the countdown timer there will be a signal letting you know that it is taking photos.  This will also give you the chance to pick the best photo out of several that it takes.  No more grumpy faces and eyes that are closed.

Time Lapse Mode

An option that is new to this camera is the time-lapse setting.  When you select this option you will have the ability to take a new picture every few seconds.  Once the photos are complete and you are ready to move on your can press the stop butter and a video will automatically be created to show you a time lapse of whatever it is you just took photos of.  The best way to get the perfect time-lapse photos is to use a tripod unless of course you have a very steady hand.

Add Filters To Your Photos

You may or may not be familiar with the icon on the bottom of the screen for filters.  This will appear when you take a new picture but you will also have the option of adding a filter once the picture has already been taken.  This gives you the option of adding a filter at the time of the photo or even later.  If you wish to have the original photo back you can press the word revert and it will give you the original one back.

No Need For A Third Party App To Edit

If you like to edit your photos and often depend on third party apps you will find that with the iPhone 6 you will no longer need these apps.  You will be able to edit your photo without even leaving the camera mode.   Once you have made the changes if you decide that you would rather have your original photo you can click the word revert and it will take you back to the original.

As you can see there are many differences in the new iPhone 6 camera.  The ones listed above are only a few of the more popular options there are many more than can be found once you start using the camera.
