How to Use the iPhone Camera

It is not all about using expensive devices for photography, the best camera is the one you have with you all the time. Luckily for the iPhone users, the camera in the device is pretty decent. The picture resolution and other effects in Apple devices are way better than other ones.

Early models of iPhone did not have impressive cameras, lacking features like flash, zoom and user-directed focus. However, Apple has raised the standards now, and the latest models have very good cameras.

The iPhone 4S added a few very good features, like HDR photos. The following model, iPhone 5, further made things interesting for the photographers by bringing support from panoramic images.

Whenever you go out with friends, don’t forget to take your iPhone with you. You can take different snaps, and transfer them to your personal computer. Now a days, many people upload picture to Facebook directly from iPhone. The features like auto focus and brightness have made photography very easy these days.

You don’t need to be an expert to use the iPhone camera. It is very simple. The latest models have two cameras, one facing the user and the other on the back.
