iPhone Xs Max Camera Tips, Tricks, Features and Full TutorialJun 14, 2021
Hey guys, take her out of the sake ticket in today's video. I want to give you a complete list of iPhone 10s Max and 10s
tricksand basically a complete
tutorialthat you paid over a thousand dollars for the smartphone and you better know how to use every aspect of your wonderful
cameraso I'm just going going to go over every little thing i think you need to know to improve your property towards the end of the video for the sake of people who want to get really serious about this camera i will show you how to get
fullmanual control over the
iphonecamera which it lets you individually set exposure by manually controlling things like ISO value, shutter speed, and manual focus, just like on a DSLR camera, but that's going to be all the way in the end now before I dive in.
I need you to
fully understand that the iPhone 10 Max and 10s camera is a dual camera system, which means that on the back it has two cameras, the first is a 12-megapixel standard angle camera. s with an aperture of F 1 point 8, while the second is a telephoto camera, it is also a 12-megapixel camera with an aperture of f28. Note the first thing I'm going to show you is the distinction between the standard angle camera and the telephoto camera let's dig in and find out all right so let's dig in and start talking about the camera as you can see I launched the camera app and it's in photo mode now the first thing I want to talk about is I want to actually, make a quick and clear distinction between the standard lens and the telephoto lens that I talked about at the beginning of the video.
The reason it has that secondary telephoto lens is for two reasons, one being to be able to zoom in twice optically. So if I tap this button you get twice the optical zoom so you don't lose image quality you can zoom something twice optically and if you tap it again it zooms back once now on this. 1x Om you're using that primary camera but by the time I touch this guy you're using the secondary telephoto camera just keep in mind that's one reason you have that secondary camera another reason why you have that secondary camera is the portrait option so when you swipe to go to portrait mode portrait mode allows you to basically focus on a subject and object to a person it's actually designed for people it gives you sharp focus and sharp on the main subject in this case I'm using this lens here and then everything around that lens blurs into a creamy background and that's what's called a bokeh effect so basically that's the only reason you have that secondary telephoto for 2x optical zoom and to be able to access the portrait option so when you use this mode remember you are using that secondary camera and the good thing is you actually have five different modes it's the ones you can play with here so if you touch this icon you'll see ys natural light if you touch this I can get a wheel you can switch to studio contour light stage light and also mono stage light which it means monochrome correct and basically make sure when you get to these two options here the last two options that you put the person's face in the middle here to get the proper effect again it's designed for people not objects.
I'm only using this right now because it's easy to demonstrate, but you can use all these different options and play around. with them to get different and nice studio effects in short you are using the secondary camera just to get this option so that's it with the primary and secondary lens now you know what they are there for let me switch and give you other ones
tricks, now i know some of you are not experts so i will give you a couple of basics to get from one mode to another. All they have to do is this. you can go to panorama mode and then you can go back the same way if you want to record a video swipe to the right and now you can record a video it has slow motion and also has the time lapse option but let's go back to photo I'm going to give you a tip here that I'm sure a lot of people don't know about so the first thing you can do is tap the screen to focus on a subject so I'm focusing on the lens and come on let's say you're looking at that image and you think the picture doesn't look very bright or maybe it's too dark, what you could do is just put your finger like you can focus on the subject and just swipe up and down to actually darken the picture or make it lighter , what you are actually doing is changing the exposure of that photo so if something is too bright you can turn it down you can darken it and if something is too dark you can bring it up to bring in more light and get a better exposed photo. a so that's one tip you can use on the camera directly and the other one what you can do is press and hold a subject and what you can do is it says here AE Lock + AF so AE stands for exposure and AF stands for auto focus so basically what you just did was disable auto standby and it locks them in place so at this point the exposure and focus have locked so all you have to do is hold held down.
You can do this anywhere. You can press and hold on the table here boom now the focus is locked here and also the exposure based on this area is fine and if you want to cancel it just tap anywhere else and it cancels but most importantly do this to clear or darken your photo just to get a better shot, so let's move on to the next tip again. I'll just give you some of the basics in case we're dealing with some beginners not everyone is an expert so on top here we tapped on this guy and you can actually apply and affect life so you can and see a effect of how it's going to look before you even take the picture you've got a bunch of these guys so you can always do that if you tap it again it disappears here you've got the timer you can set it to 3 seconds so if it takes a picture it will count down to 3 and then it will take the actual photo so let's disable that and this is sort of off and this is live photo mode this is something that I always turn off basically what it does is when you enable live photo when you take a photo it records three seconds before and after the photo giving it a live effect now this is something I always disable and of course it has the flash err auto on or off no big deal some of he basics now the next thing I want to talk about is video mode video mode and I also want to talk about slow motion mode so you bought the iPhone 10 and it has amazing video recording capabilities like be able to record at 4k at 60 frames per second bu Right now when you first buy the iPhone it's not set to record at 4k you can go in and actually you have to tweak the settings now if you look at the top here it says HD and 60, what does that mean? i'm shooting at 1080p which means high definition at 60 frames per second so you're getting a little hint here what if you want to go 4k at 30 frames per second or 4k at 60 frames per second? what you need to do is go to settings okay and you want to scroll down to the camera option tap on that camera option and then here it says record video tap on this guy and this will let you toggle the choice between different modes that he can do 720 at 30 frames per second 1080p at 30 frames per second 1080p at 60 frames per second and then you have these four options for 4k 4k at 60 frames per second now let me go back to the camera to show you something real quick go to the camera now you're back in video mode if you look in th and above it says 4k 60 so you know you're recording at 4k 60 frames per second and let me go back to settings now let's get rid of that go to settings here and then just one thing to notice here is it says that 4k at 60 frames per second is only available in high efficiency mode so if you go back here to the camera and go to the formats as you can see I have the most compatible enable now that I don't f it will work for 4k at 60 frames per second you would have to go to high efficiency then when you come back here to shoot a video it no longer says high efficiency it's actually enabled it will work fine so keep in mind you have to use the high efficiency mode to record at 4k at 60 frames per second the reason is high efficiency takes up less space on your smartphone and 4k videos can take up a lot of space on your phone if you are not careful so let's come back here let me come back here for a second if you look here it tells you if you were e to record a video for 1 minute in 4k at 60 frames per second it's going to take 400 megabytes of space that's a lot compared if you shoot at 1080p at 60 frames per second you're just wasting 90 megabytes of space for 1 minute of video so keep these things in mind as you record the video and as you record choosing between these different options but the most important thing I really want to share with you is that e when they come back here they should be able to see what mode you're recording it in by looking at the top corner here ok now the same applies to slow motion video if i scroll right now it doesn't say anything that means if you don't see anything it means it's default ok let me go back here go to settings go back go slow motion and set the default setting which is 1080p at 240 frames per second but if you choose this guy and go back to the camera and look at the top higher, you will see high. -definition at 120 frames per second for slow motion mode n, ok, now let's go back to the settings.
I'm going to talk about a couple more things. One more thing I want you to do is make sure you enable the grid that comes enabled so when you go to the camera you won't see. lines on camera if you have the lines it makes it easier to better align subjects within the frame of the camera so always go there to settings and make sure grid is enabled so when you go here to the camera, you'll see these lines on the camera which will help you align photos poorly or subjects better within the frame of your phone ok there's a couple more things here that are important ok so let's go back to camera settings camera.
I'll show you a couple more things here that are important we talked about all of these guys here this one is pretty obvious you can use the camera to scan QR codes if you turn it off the cameras will lose that functionality if you enable it the camera won't lose That functionality, now here's something a little more important. If it relates directly to photography, you can enable or disable Auto HDR mode. Now, HDR stands for high dynamic range. Run camera now if you look at the top here it only has four options and normally you would see the HDR option here as well but it's not there because we have it set to auto so if I go back to settings if you disable this you have the option of turning HDR off you can either turn it off or you can keep it on Auto right now in settings, if you turn it on auto you never have to worry about it every time you use the HDR mode which I personally recommend you keep it on you will get the best possible shot by having HDR enabled at all times now if you are a bit of a pro and want to know that you want to have a non-HDR photo for some reason. you can do that too just disable that from the settings menu ok so basically it's all the little settings you have to worry about inside the camera.
The other thing you might worry about is if you launch the camera, which it might do is take burst photos so you can hold down. and it will take photos as long as i press that button if i hold the shutter button so i can see and what i could do is touch select and select any one of those 15 photos so i can make the point of this is lets say i go out to the camera a the right let's say i'm taking a bunch of pictures of something i can hold it will take a bunch of pictures then i launch that picture and see the select option i tap on it and now it's going to let me pick the best picture.
I can do it manually. I can choose the best image from that burst mode that I just did. Let's just say I thought this was the best. I click on this guy and I click done and then I can keep all or just have two favorites now I picked two I have one so let me do one here and let me click done so keep all that means, Do you want to keep the seven burst photos or do you want to delete one of them? I can only say keep only one favourite, delete the remaining seven, ok? now as you can see you no longer see select at the bottom but if i come back here and take another burst photo if i go to preview i will see the selection now i have five photos i can choose from let me just cancel for now.
I'll show you one more thing, so I'm sure you know that every time you take a photo, it's saved to the photo library. Here are a couple of things you can modify with the library. What I want to do is go to settings and instead of going to thecamera, go to photos, tap on it and then you have a bunch of options. The first option I asked people to enable is iCloud Photo Library so you get five gigs of iCloud storage with every iPhone purchase so if you want to make sure all your photos are saved with one backup to iCloud you can keep this enabled so every time you take a photo or record a video it saves a video uploaded to your iCloud Photo Library and it's also available on all your Apple devices the only problem is five gigs might fill up really fast so just use this carefully that's ok and then the other things you can do now you can allow siri to find photos so if you want to use siri to find a photo that was taken today you can ask siri like so that let me do it right now hey Siri show me the photos that were taken today so you can see that these are the photos that I'm showing today that I just took with you while I was doing demos so yeah q want that option enabled make sure you go in here go to settings and siri and search is enabled under photos very simple and the other thing here is while charging if you enable this iCloud 4th if the photo library of iCloud is enabled which means you are uploading your photos to your iCloud library you need to go here and you need to make sure you don't use your cellular data for uploads they only use Wi-Fi the reason is because if you have a limited data plan , it will actually waste your data so make sure you only do this when you are connected to your Wi-Fi and not when you are not using your mobile data properly and that is basically it there is nothing special here if you scroll down one more thing what i want you to enable is this guy here it says see full HDR so at all times your photos look their best ok let's go back to the home screen and talk about the remaining tips and of course one tip very simple which again a lot of people don't know especially beginners is the fact that you can use the volume controls to take a picture so instead of pressing this button you can just press this guy and I'll take a picture or you can just push the volume up and it'll take an absolutely fantastic photo and finally I'm going to talk to an audience that might be interested in a bit more advanced photography and maybe they're wanting a full manual mode which means if you want to control I , so you want to control the exposure and you want to control other things like shutter speed manually instead of having the camera app do everything for you in case you want to do some advanced photography now with android phones like the galaxy s 8 or some of the LG phones, these applications are built into the phone and you can do manual photography with Apple, you can do it, but you can download apps and I will recommend apps to you.
In fact, I just want to be honest, you can get the plus camera, which I don't use that often, but the professional camera is something that will allow you to have complete manual control over your camera as if you were using a DSLR camera, so leave Touch to this guy and as you can see this is a camera app but it is much more advanced than your normal app. The camera app that comes with your iPhone, first of all, at the bottom, immediately has an exposure meter so you can change the exposure. y You can make the image brighter or darker as you need, but if you touch this icon here, you have all these options, you have the ISO and the shutter speed.
You can control this manually. You can touch this guy here and it says manual mode is now enabled at the top, you see the shutter speed, exposure value and ISO value now, if I touch this again it goes away and I can touch this guy's. I can change the shutter speed manually so I can have it at 60 seconds or whatever seconds, I can change the ISO so I can change the ISO to 320 maybe and then take a picture that way manually again. If you want full control over your camera you can download these apps and as you can see there are so many options you can even do focus lock you can have all kinds of different grids but you can change different grids you can have a tilt meter here if i touch this guy it shows you how level your camera is and all that good stuff again i'm not going to give you a
tutorialon this actual app but if you want to explore it it's called a pro camera i think it's a couple bucks but worth it if you're into serious photography but if you're not into serious photography you still have an awesome little app here it just doesn't give you the manual recording options and that brings us to the end of the video make sure if you have any questions, comments or concerns please leave a comment below and of course be sure to subscribe to sake tech and give this video a thumbs up and finally if you use Instagram Twitter or Facebook follow me at all at sake tech online have a great day
