The most notable upgrades from the standard built-in camera interface are varied. Users can now extend photo-zooming capabilities with a 6x zoom that is impressive and the Anti-Shake feature works like a dream, combining to offer far more detailed shots. The Self-Timer is also great when you want to compose yourself and peers for captures. It’s these simple yet essential additions that make the whole photo-taking scenario on iPhone more reliable and far more authentic.
Getting creative with your snaps is also assured with the entertaining Pro Lab, Pro Cut and Pro FX commands. Here you can take advantage of crop presets, exposure settings and special photo styles that all add flair to your images.
Step 1: Standard user interface
Open the app to take your snap. In the bottom corners are your zoom controls, displaying the percentages you’re zooming in increments of two.
Step 2: Frame options
Pressing the triangle option lets you see your framing options. You can also activate Anti-Shake, the Self-Timer and Expert Mode.
Step 3: Pro editing
Again, pressing the triangle icon, select Pro Lab. Contrast and saturation are standard but effective, brightness is a bit wayward, but flash is very good.
Step 4: Pro Cut
Fix crooked pictures with the degree slider, applying predefined aspect ratios including 1:1, 16:9, 4:3, 3:2, the Golden-Ratio, or by customising your own.
Step 5: Pro FX
Four filter categories exist – Color, Vintage, Special and Retouch. The Color types, as well as Fix Yellow and Fix Blue, will correct pesky colour casts.
