Have you ever wanted a camera that automatically focuses on what you want? Well, now with the new iPhones, you can have that. In this article, we’re going over how autofocus works!
Why Does My iPhone Camera Shake
If you are trying to take a photo of something small with your iPhone, the image may come out blurry. This is called camera shake. If this is happening, there might be too much light in the scene or your hands might be shaky so it’s difficult for the camera to focus on what you want!
So, if you have too much light in the scene, move to a new location or turn off your flash by tapping ‘Light’ next to the shutter. If your hands are shaky, try resting your arm on something steady so it’s easier for the camera to focus.
What is Autofocus?
Autofocus can be really helpful if you need to take a photo of something small or if your hands are shaky. There are two different types: AF-S and AF-C.
- AF-S (Auto Focus – Single) works great for scenes with one object in focus at a time. For example, you can take a photo of your friend performing on stage while the rest of the scene is blurry.
- AF-C (Auto Focus – Continuous) is very helpful if you’re trying to take a photo of moving objects. For example, you can take photos at your friend or sibling’s soccer game without having to tap on the screen every time they kick the ball!
The camera will continuously focus on whatever moves most in the scene.
3 Ways You Can Improve Your Focus in Low-Light Conditions with an iPhone 8 or X
Did you know that there are three ways to improve your focus in low-light conditions with the iPhone 8 or X? One way is by tapping on a subject. If you tap on an object, it will automatically adjust for better lighting. Another thing you can do is zoom in. Zooming in will make your camera more sensitive to light! The last thing you can do is use the flash. The flash will adjust the shutter speed, making it easier to focus!
What Is Focus Pixels?
If your love taking photos in dim environments, then there might be something you need to know about your iPhone X or 8 camera. Focus pixels are tiny parts of an image sensor that work together to determine the distance between an object and your camera. The iPhone X or 8 can recognize focus pixels really well in low-light conditions, but sometimes if there’s not enough light it will make a small mistake.
How Does Autofocus Work When Recording Video?
If you’re busy recording videos with your iPhone X or 8, autofocus is going to be extremely helpful. If you have a lot of things happening in the scene, it’s very difficult to keep your camera focused on one subject without making changes. To do this, simply tap on what you want to focus on when recording!
The Importance of The Perfectly Stable Video for Your Business
Video is a powerful way to tell stories and connect with your audience. Today we’re going over why having a perfectly stable video for your business is important. For example, if you are watching a video of someone skating, the image should be mostly clear instead of wavy or shaky.
If there’s too much movement in the scene, it will be difficult to focus on what you’re watching. However, if the scene is too still, your video will look boring and it will seem like nothing is happening! To fix this problem, try adding a gimbal or stabilizer to your setup to give your videos a more cinematic feel.
The iPhone X and 8 have a very special autofocus feature that is useful for taking photos of moving objects or if your hands are shaky. It’s also very helpful in low-light conditions!
Additionally, there are three ways to make the camera focus better when taking photos; one way is by tapping on an object, zooming in, or using the flash. The camera recognizes focus pixels really well in low-light conditions, which makes it easier to take a photo of something small.
Lastly, if your videos look wavy or shaky it will be difficult to focus on what’s going on in the video. Fix this by adding a stabilizer to your setup! Now go out and practice your new autofocus skills!
