Join Seán Duggan for an in-depth discussion in this video Adjusting exposure and exploring improved focusing, part of iPhone and iPad Photography with iOS 8.
- With iOS 8 the native camera app has received…a significant upgrade in that you can finally…adjust the exposure before taking the shot.…In the past you could only tap on an area to set focus…and exposure but you couldn't adjust it…other then tapping on another part of the screen.…Other third party camera apps…have had this feature for a while,…so it's nice to see it added to the functionality…of the native camera app.…Let's check out how it works.…When you tap on the touch screen in an area of the scene,…that tells the camera to focus on that area.…
It also evaluates the reflective luminescence of that area…and adjusts the exposure accordingly.…As you tap in different areas of the scene,…you'll see that the live view of the image will get lighter…or darker depending on the brightness…of the area where you tap.…The area that the lens is focusing on…is shown by a yellow square.…On one side of the square you'll see a small yellow sun.…When you see this, simply drag up to brighten the exposure…or down to darken the exposure.…
