2. Taking Picture Using Volume-Up button
With iOS 5, we can shoot a photo simply by pressing the Volume-Up button. We don't have to struggle with the on-screen photo capture button anymore.
3. Use the iPhone Headset to Take a Photo
Imagine we are listening to music on the iPhone and want to shoot an unexpected moment? It's easy with iOS 5, we can just press the Volume-Up button on the iPhone Headset or any Apple Certified Headset.
4. Pinch to Zoom
We can now simply Pinch on the screen to zoom while taking a photo. We can also use the on screen bar to zoom. The bar appears when we just pinch on the screen on the Camera app.
5. Easy Viewing of Photo We have Just Taken
We can easily switch to a photo we have just snapped simply by swipping to the left. We can go back to the Camera app by swipping it to the right.
6. Lock Exposure and Focus in the Camera
We can now lock the exposure and the focus by simply pressing an holding our finger on the screen. By doing so will auto focus to the perticular area of the image you are going to shoot. A useful feature when we want to take portraits.
7. Grid Display in Camera
We can turn on the grid display for the iPhone camera by turning it on from the Options menu. This is very useful when we want to align/ level our image or to play by the Rule of Thirds.
8. Create Albums Directly From iPhone
We can create albums directly from the Photos app, rather than waiting to transfer the photos and videos to your computer and sort out later.
9. Options Menu in the Camera
With iOS 5, we have an Options menu to Switch On or OFF Grid display or HDR (High Dynamic Range).
10. Editing Photos From Camera App and Photos App
We can do simple editing with the iOS 5 Camera and Photos app on the iPhone itself by simply tapping on the Edit button appearing at the top right corner. We cannot do alot with this photo editing feature, but useful to Rotate images, to Crop images, to Remove red-eye and to Auto-Enhance. I would say it is handy when we take a photo and directly edit it rather than switching to any other photo editing apps.
