Join Seán Duggan for an in-depth discussion in this video Self-timer and burst mode, part of iPhone and iPad Photography with iOS 8.
- In iOS 8, the Camera app features two different…timer modes with different countdown times,…as well as a new feature called Burst Mode,…which takes several shots.…Burst Mode is great because it allows you…to choose the best shot from all that were taken,…increasing the likelihood that you'll get a good shot.…Tap the timer icon at the top of the screen,…and choose either a three or a 10 second delay.…If you'll be in the shot yourself, try to steady…the camera either by placing it on a tripod,…or by bracing it against a structure that will allow it…to remain steady while you take the shots.…
Of course, you could also just use…the front-facing camera to do an arm's length selfie.…Tap the shutter button to start the countdown.…When the countdown ends, you'll see…a quick progression of numbers, from one to 10…on the screen indicating that 10 shots…are being taken in Burst Mode.…To review the shots, go to the Burst Album…in the Photos app.…You'll only see one image from the burst displayed,…but tap Select at the bottom of the screen…
