By taking a burst of photos, that is, one after the other at high speed, we make sure we capture several very precise moments in time so that we can later choose the one that interests us. A very simple resource offered by the Camera app on our iPhone. Let’s see how to use it.
Many shots in a short period of time
We have a couple of ways to take a burst of many images with the Camera app on our iPhone. Some resources, it should be said, that changed with the arrival of the iPhone 11 and the redesign of the app. The easiest way to take such a burst is move the fire button to the left of the screen (looking at the iPhone vertically). With this we will see a count of all the photos taken appear and we will stop the burst when we release the button.
Another very comfortable way to capture this type of content is use a volume button. This option, however, requires us to configure it in the Settings app. We do so:
- We open the app Settings on our iPhone.
- We came in Camera.
- We activate Volume up button for burst.
So instead of the default behavior that takes a photo with a simple touch and a video by holding down either button, we can now hold down the volume up button to take a blast. The behavior of the buttons, depending on the type of content we want, becomes this:
- Photos: A press on the volume up or down button.
- Videos: a long press on the volume down button.
- Gusts: a long press on the volume down button.
A very simple adjustment that allows us a new way to take burst photos. A system that we can use without almost looking at the screenWell, once we get used to it, we’ll know what kind of content we want to capture and how to do it with the volume buttons on our iPhone.
