Getting the Most from Your iPhone Camera


A few weeks ago, I gave a presentation to the South Bay Mac Users Group (SBMUG) on the iPhone’s camera. This presentation was basically an update of the one I gave about three years ago. The camera in the iPhone and the software that supports it has gone through a lot of technical advancements since then.

I decided to post the slide show here, because I suspect that many people (including myself) just use camera to take simple selfies and are unaware or forget just how capable the iPhone camera is.

To view the slide show, just click on the link above. It is a large file, so it will take several seconds to open.  To go from slide to slide, just click. There are embedded videos, so you may have to click to start and/or stop them.

The presentation uses the iPhone 7+ camera, since that is the iPhone I own. Most of the material is directly related to the camera in the iPhone XR, as well as older recent versions of the iPhone.

For those of you who have a different smartphone, check out its camera’s capabilities. I bet you will find that it can do a lot more than you thought.
