Not sure if anyone else has noticed this but when taking a picture in low-light situations the field of view is very illuminated but when switching to video its as if all the lights are turned off. Anyone know what's causing this?
In photo mode, the shutter speed can be under 1/60th of a second, allowing greater exposure. When you use video (at 60 fps), the minimum shutter speed of each frame is 1/60th of a second. Thus, if proper exposure at a given aperture requires a slower shutter speed, each frame of that video will be underexposed - very dark video.Not sure if anyone else has noticed this but when taking a picture in low-light situations the field of view is very illuminated but when switching to video its as if all the lights are turned off.

iOS doesn't allow granular ISO control ... exposure has just come in with iOS8 and flash ... thats about it
I've been wondering this as well. I have no real answer for you. But I noticed it first with my iPhone 5 when iPhone cameras started getting better at low light. Before the difference was much smaller. But it's getting bigger and bigger. My best guess is that when taking a picture the camera uses everything it has to offer. But with video it has to disable "features" to be able to record 1080p 30/60 fps video. That's my guess anyway.
Edit: Also if you check slo mo video. It will be even darker. I just switched back to 30fps from 60 because I noticed 30 being slightly better in low light.
No, no actually it doesn't. It's seems logical to change the settings of the camera IN the camera app.
I made a post about this a few weeks ago but never got any responses. It's pretty sad, my friends LG G3's low-light/night time recording is 50x better than my iPhones.
