The many uses of Live Photo
Another exciting feature of the iPhone 13 Pro camera is that you can do quick videos in photo mode! There are two ways to do this.
Press Live Photo in the top right (it’s a target icon of three concentric circles) to record a motion photo.
. You now have the option to loop or bounce.
Click Share and Save as video to save the footage in a video format.
That’s not all you can do, though. You can turn a Live Photo into a long exposure, ideal for excellent night photography with moving subjects. (You’ll still need to hold the Camera absolutely still or use a tripod.)
To edit a Live Photo:
Open it in the Live Photos album on your phone.
Press the Live Photo icon to select options to loop, bounce, or create a long exposure.
Saving iPhone 13 Pro camera settings
We all get attached to camera settings, so why not save them and customize your settings? This will keep you from manually setting them each time you use your Camera.
To customize camera settings:
Create iPhone 13 Pro camera shortcuts
Did you know that you can create handy camera shortcuts? Why waste time going through unnecessary steps if you can create a shortcut and get something done in a fraction of the time?
You can combine several actions into one shortcut or command. For example, rather than going through the several steps of opening your phone and then opening the Camera to snap a picture, you can set up a shortcut instead.
To create a new shortcut, open the Shortcut app. Tap the ‘+‘ symbol. You can also create a shortcut using Siri.
Automatic Night Mode
The iPhone 13 Pro has a great Night Mode that’s quite the improvement from previous versions. However, there will probably be times when you don’t want it automatically applied. This can be especially true because Night Mode often makes night scenes look like daytime. By the way, Night Mode also won’t stop action with a moving subject.
You can turn off Night Mode each time you use the Camera. However, you can also turn off automatic Night Mode, so it’s not a default action. This allows you to turn it on whenever you want to use it.
To enable it when you want it, tap the Night Mode icon (a moon).
Go to Settings app > Camera > Preserve Settings and toggle the Night Mode switch.
