Apple is planning a new 3D camera for the iPhone, to be released as early as 2020. Using a laser scanner to improve range over long distances, depth perception is refined and could help lead the way to Apple’s venture into Augmented Reality. In the meantime, while you wait, there are already plenty of extras available to enhance your photo taking experience. And, as well as these apps and accessories, you can be making yourself familiar with all the settings and features of your photo apps that you are already using, in order to maximize what you can achieve with your iPhone.
Get The Bigger Picture
A framed scene, an individual printed portrait, or a collage maker brings photos to life. With a 12 megapixel camera, the iPhone is ideal for taking high standard pictures that will allow you to convert them successfully into large, top quality prints. If you ever alter your camera’s resolution in order to maximize storage space, just make sure that your camera is readjusted to its highest setting before taking pictures that you’ll want to print later. With a quick calculation, you can get a rough idea of how large you can print your pictures, while still maintaining acceptable quality.
A Wider View
As well as making use of the high quality lenses on your iPhone, you can enhance your pictures further with lenses to clip over your phone’s camera. These are a cheap way to externally upgrade your phone, and create wide angled pictures or unusual fish eye images. The zoom on your phone is digital, which simply enlarges your picture rather than changing the optics, so a telephoto lens could help you capture far away objects in much sharper detail.
Out Of The Picture
In taking the perfect picture to hang on your wall, life can sometimes get in the way. A new iPhone camera app, Spectre, will take a long exposure photo, focusing on stationary objects, from which you can then easily delete unwanted moving objects and people, so creating a flawless, unblemished picture.
Every year, there’s a promise of new technology for the iPhone that will improve your photos, and this year is no exception. However, while you’re waiting for the latest upgrades and enhancements, be sure that you’re also making the best of all that your iPhone already has to offer.
