Take photos and videos

  • Drag up or down to choose the Camera mode for still photos, square-format photos, or videos. Take a photo. Choose Photo, then tap the shutter button or press either volume button.

  • A rectangle briefly appears where the exposure is set. When you photograph people, face detection (iPad 3rd generation or later) balances the exposure across up to 10 faces. A rectangle appears for each face detected.

  • Exposure is automatic, but you can set the exposure manually for the next shot by tapping an object or area on the screen. With an iSight camera, tapping the screen sets the focus as well as the exposure. Face detection is temporarily turned off. To lock the exposure and focus until you tap the screen again, touch and hold until the rectangle pulses.

Zoom in or out

  • Stretch or pinch the image on the screen. With iPad Air and iPad mini with Retina display, zooming works in video mode as well as photo mode.

Shoot some video

  • Choose Video, then tap the Shutter button or press either volume button to start and stop recording.

  • If Location Services is turned on, photos and videos are tagged with location data that can be used by apps and photo-sharing websites. See Privacy.

Make it better

  • You can edit photos (to rotate, auto-enhance, apply a filter, remove red-eye, or crop) and trim videos, right on iPad. See Edit Photos And Trim Videos

Want to capture whats displayed on your screen?

  • Simultaneously press and release the Sleep/Wake and Home buttons. The screenshot is added to your Camera Roll.

HDR

Use HDR

  • HDR versions of photos in your Camera Roll are marked with HDR in the corner.
