iOS 8 Will Have Exciting Features: Time Lapse Photography and Unique Compositions


iOS platform always comes with innovative and unique camera features. Therefore, we are sure that iOS 8 will have its own share of awesome and fresh camera features to surprise us. iOS 7 came with higher resolution camera which ensured superior quality photos and the end users really felt proud of their phone’s camera.


iOS 8 is definitely going to come with high resolution camera, but along with that another fresh feature is going to be added to it i.e. time lapse photography mode. This feature is not very new and with the help of some apps it was always possible to click time lapse photographs. However, iOS 8 comes with integrated time lapse photography feature with the help of which you can capture slow motion pictures as well as bird’s eye shot. In Apple’s own website we got the following information about ios 8’s new camera:

“Capture the experience of the sun setting, a city street bustling, or a flower blooming with the new Time-lapse mode in Camera. iOS 8 does all the work, snapping photos at dynamically selected intervals. The result is a video showing an accelerated sequence of the photos over time. Just set up your device to shoot what you want. Swipe to select Time-lapse mode, tap the Record button, and let Camera record as long as you choose.”

Moreover iOS 8 is also going to feature some innovative add on features that will help you to create beautiful composition. However, developers at Apple are not only concerned with introducing new features, they are also working for improving the existing features.

Tech buffs are of the opinion that the time lapse photography feature in iPhone is of no good. They are of the opinion that time lapse photography is not as easy as clicking a selfie. For getting a unique and innovative time lapse photograph, we need to put in a lot of hard work and time. Sometimes, we require days to capture snaps at regular intervals and thereafter combine it to form a complete time lapse composition. The photographer must also learn the technique for clicking time lapse photographs and require some added instruments like tripod, lens etc. After considering all these facts, the tech buffs gave the verdict that addition of time lapse features is not going to bring about much difference to the iOS 8.

Nonetheless, these inhibitions have not stopped the Apple developers from including these features in iOS 8. Other changes that users are going to see in ios 8’s camera are iCloud Library and enhanced photo editing features whereby you can adjust contrast, brightness, exposure, curve etc to create stunning compositions.

All said and done, one thing we cannot ignore is that, how long the battery of iPhone is going to support time lapse photography feature of ios 8.
