Things You May Not Know About iPhone Camera

There are tons of camera related apps out there but I am not going to talk about those here.
We all know that snapping a photo by touching the iPhone screen will somehow create a slight shake thus cause the photo become blur easily. However there’s a workaround. iPhone camera apps does not snap the photo when you ‘touch’ its capture button, it snaps only when you ‘release’ it. So by holding the capture button, wait for the perfect moment then release the button will let you snap a more stable shot.
Unique lens flare
Simple. Just point to any bright light source and snap. I don’t know what makes the lens flare this way, perhaps is the way iPhone lens constructed? Anybody care to explain?
Make sure your iPhone’s location services is turn on for camera. To check, goto Settings > General > Location Services:
You will notice a small purple arrow appeared on top of the screen in camera app. Allow iPhone built in GPS to detect your location, it will then store the location data in the photos you take. Note that if you are in a tunnel or building where no GPS signal available, you can still manually add in location info later on in iPhoto or similar application.
Have fun and share your creative shots in the comment!
