How to Configure iPhone Camera Settings


In this tutorial you will learn how to configure the iPhone’s camera settings. Knowing how to adjust the iPhone’s default camera settings is very important. It allows the user to get the highest quality photo based on their surroundings. Whether it’s in a low light/high shadow situation or an overly exposed background.

Step #1 – Tap Camera App Icon

This will take us into live shooting mode.

Step #2 – Tap “Options”

This options tab is located in the middle of the top navigation bar. This is where you can adjust the settings of your iPhone’s camera.

Step #3 – Adjust default settings

In the options tab we have the ability to turn on the grid, HDR, and even take a panorama shot. Lets turn on HDR to improve our shadows and highlights. HDR takes a series of 3 pictures and combines them together. It takes an under exposed photo, an over exposed photo, and a normal exposed photo and stitches them together to achieve great clarity.

Step #4 –Panorama Photography

A panoramic photo captures elongated fields of view. It is sometimes know as “wide format photography”. Simply put, you can fit more subjects into your shot.

Step #5 – Take Panorama Photo

Tap the “Panorama” tab, located beneath “HDR”. Then press the camera icon button. This will begin the panorama shot.

Step #6 – Pan Camera

Pan your camera slowly to the right and you will see a white arrow follow accordingly. Make sure you keep the camera panning at a steady horizontal level. If you raise it too high or low you can see the arrow following you. This means that your photo won’t turn out as accurate.

Step #7 – Tap Done

Once you have captured all that you want to, click the blue “done” button.

Step #8 – Check out the results

You can see that our photo includes much more content because of the series of photos it took. It stitched together multiple photos into one.
