Jeff Carlson wants you to get the most out of your smartphone’s built-in camera app and has put together this guide on PopPhoto to help you get started. You’ll learn how to quickly launch the camera, trigger the shutter with the volume button, quickly adjust exposure, focus, zoom and camera modes and more in iOS 16 and Android 13.
As with every camera, smartphone or traditional, there are plenty of features to help you get the best shot. Be sure to explore the app’s settings and other buttons (such as adjusting self-timers or changing the default aspect ratio) so that when the time comes, you’ll know exactly which camera function to use. photo of the smartphone turning you.
