How to Add Burst Mode to iPhone Camera
As I so often say, iPhone does seriously lack some features. In-spite of its being the worlds best smartphone, it has quite limited camera functions in the camera app. But when you have lacks of apps waiting in the app store, almost anything can be done. We will today add burst mode to iPhone Camera with the help of a simple app, from the app store.
Burst Mode allows you to click Photos at high rates, often more than 10 frames (photos) per second. This is very effective when you are shooting sports or moving photos, so that you do not miss a shot .
There are two promising apps on the app store that let you shoot photos in the burst mode. Both of them are good and unfortunately, both are paid .
Because I needed to add burst mode to iPhone, I decided on buying one of these apps. The first one being cheaper, I went ahead and purchased it. Below are details of the app.
As soon I opened the App, it started shooting. That is a good feature. Whenever you require to shoot in burst mode, you just need to open the Fast Camera App and it automatically starts shooting pictures in burst mode.
When the start button is pressed, the App will begin to continuously shoot photos until you press the stop button. On a counter you can see the number of shots taken. It also has buttons to switch front/rear camera and to toggle flash. It is also backward compatible with iPhone 3GS which does not feature either flash or a front camera. You can however not use it with iPhone 2G because the minimum OS requirement is iOS4.
After you have stopped you can press review to review all the snaps. You can select the ones that you want to save to your camera roll, and then press the yellow button, SAVE. You can also select all with a single click. You may preview them if you want to see how they have come out. The selected ones can be saved to the camera roll. To save memory, you can delete all the photos by first pressing “select all” and then pressing the delete button.
It has so many options in its settings that it can altogether replace the stock photos app. It is faster, and comes with MANY more settings. You can set it on a BURST mode, in which you have to hold down the BURST button until you want to stop. This is better for picturing some events which continue for a longer time. You can set this from shooting mode in the settings. You can also set Delay between Shots, which is minimum by default. There is also an awesome Manual mode, in which you can take one photo with one click, and if you repeatedly click the button, it will take photos in that frequency.
