How to use burst photography on iOS 7

How to use burst photography on iOS 7

With Apple having released not one but two iPhones this year, alongside a brand spanking new version of its operating system, we’ve certainly had a lot to talk about in recent weeks.

And one of the best features of iOS 7 is the updated camera app, including burst shot technology, which, on the iPhone 5s, can take up to 10 shots per second. So if you’re wanting to capture an incredible photo of a moving object, or perhaps just want a group shot where everybody’s smiling, then burst shot is your perfect tool.

So here’s a simply guide for how to use it…

Getting started

Open up the camera feature on your iPhone, and point the shutter at the object which you want to capture.

We decided to take a photo of our friends Bradley and Bhawan playing a game of pool.

Simply hold down the capture button. You will see the screen flicker a little as your phone rapidly takes multiple photos in quick succession. You should also notice a little number pop up near the capture button, indicating how many shots you have captured.

The iPhone 5s can take up to 10 shots per second, but if you’ve upgraded to iOS 7 on your iPhone 4 or 4s, you might find that burst shot works a little bit slower.

Once you feel that you’ve captured your perfect shot, simply release the capture button. Your iPhone will automatically choose the best photo, but for iPhone 5s users, you will be able to scroll through the tens of images in order to choose a favourite for yourself!

And there you have it, get the perfect shot every time with iOS 7’s updated burst shot photo mode.
