Join Seán Duggan for an in-depth discussion in this video Improved video-shooting capabilities, part of iPhone and iPad Photography with iOS 8.
- The video mode in iOS 8 is very similar…to what was available in iOS 7.…The big improvements in video quality…have come in the changes to the camera…on the iPhone 6 and the 6 Plus.…As with most things in iOS,…shooting a video is very easy.…In the Camera app, swipe horizontally on the screen…until the camera mode changes to video.…The default frame rate for video in iOS 8…is thirty frames per second, which is pretty standard…on a lot of cameras these days.…In the settings for the Photos & Camera app,…which you can find by going to Settings, Photos & Camera,…you can change the default video frame rate…to sixty frames per second.…
Sixty frames per second is the beginning…of what is considered slow motion.…It's not super slow, but it does slow things down just a bit…and for some subjects, this may be advantageous.…When you're in video mode, the button is red,…whereas in photo mode, the shutter button is white.…Tap the shutter button to start recording.…On the iPhone 6 or 6 Plus, the video will…automatically refocus and adjust exposure…
