How to Take Burst Photos on iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max

Remember when apple products didn’t need a manual. Imagine a user (especially an older user) coming to iPhone for the first time! The new cut copy paste / undo redo gestures alone are mind boggling. It’s getting crazy now.
Needlessly complex. One of the most useful features of the camera made harder to use. Especially hard to use if trying to take burst selfies.

Well the new gestures don’t work for me at all so they’d be fine

As a parent, this is fantastic news. No more toddler burst fests, where kid finds phone, shoots three hundred photos of her forehead and the ceiling (bc the camera app is so helpfully on the lock screen). A single video will be so much easier to delete.

Well worth the trade off of having the ability to now hold down the shutter to start capturing video immediately; I’m sure that is more of a common want while snapping pics than to snap bursts…. by at least several orders of magnitude.

Since iOS started letting you change the key frame for Live Photos, I have stopped taking bursts. I have more flexibility with a Live Photo or two than a bunch of still shots. Yes, the burst is a hair better in quality if I shift the frame, but if I’m taking an action shot, I want that video anyway.

Reading your signature, does ‘old’ user mean iPhone 3GS lol?

So would you rather they never give us new features?

One persons feature is another’s turd pile. New burst gesture is horrible. They require delicate sliding and holding in a fixed position at a time when a user is about to photographic action. Delicate and gentle with action. Makes no sense from ergonomic. Slide to the side is terrible when used on a multi-purpose button. Press hard enough, but not too hard, now slide and hold. A perfect sequence of events to ensure you miss the action burst. This will be polarizing for sure.

And it’s not a feature. Both video and burst mode existed for many iterations of the OS. this is a change in how users initiate the action. Those who liked it as it was will almost undoubtedly dislike the change.

speaking of annoyances, the new keyboard requiring press on space bar to move cursor is also lame. Also, when did we lose the magnifying glass when pressing to select text?

I believe burst is not used that often and even initiated by accident by many people. I assume there is a delay before it switches to video to avoid accidental video taking.

Why only on the new iPhones though?

I am eager to see the Google event, since they actually added a “gestures” chip, to recognize the minute differences of very similar hand movements & are thought to be introducing myriad gestures into the new Pixel.
I am definitely with you in that I think these gestures don’t really work & are not (to me) helpful. Swipe forward and back is fine… I’m not really trying to do fancy 3 finger pinches, nor hover my finger above a screen and the like.

Let’s block ads! (Why?)
