Cool tip about using the iPhone camera.....press down the shutter button and keep holding it down until you have the shot lined up exactly how you want it. Then release the button and it will take the photo immediately. This method seems to make photos sharper because your hand, and therefore the camera, will be much more steady.

The camera will obviously never be great for stopping action and won't be replacing your DSLR anytime soon, but that method does a decent job.

If this has been posted already, my apologies, but just read about it today on my RSS reader.

This method does not work with the physical button (volume button). It only works with the on screen virtual button. That's why I never use the volume button.

Ouch, talk about an old mixed up thread!!!!!! Why bring this up?????? :confused:

Why iPad! Without a thought you may carry the iPad mini and can easily grip in your honour at just 7.2mm
1. This thread is from 2007. The OP was a tip for the original iPhone.

2. Your post is completely random, even allowing for the fact that it's your first.

3. Why NOT iPad? :rolleyes:

i always try to use the shutter button, the volume buttons seems too "hard" to press and it always causes me to "shake" the phone when i press it...

Poster using an auto-translate program? Translators produce awkward, stilted text when going to English; probably when translating English into anything else, too. ;)

Post is still in the wrong place (in an incredibly OLD thread) for whatever it is.

There's another one that popped up today over here:

I'm not going to pretend to know how busy the mods are here, so I'm guessing they just watching it a little further to determine if it's a legit user.
That thread has 3 posts from 2007, nothing newer. I guess the decision was made. ;)
