New iPhone 6 and iOS 8 Camera Controls

The iPhone 6 and Plus have significant upgrades to the forward-facing camera, not to mention the added benefits of iOS 8’s Camera app. I took one look in the app and was surprised by the number of design changes — so many that in part it felt like using a different camera app altogether from iOS 7’s.

Wistia’s article (linked to with the title of this post) has everything you want to know to quickly learn the new controls for professional level photo shoots and video recording sessions. Chris gives steps through exposure control, image stabilization, enhanced autofocus, time-lapse mode, and super slow motion. The short videos and animated GIFs help break it all down, like a good how-to should.
