Basics - Viewfinder (learn the main controls in the app)
Gallery | We save all of your photos to your native camera roll. This makes managing your photos and videos easier. Some apps build their own libraries on your phone, but we found that to be a frustrating user experience. In the library you can see your images where you can delete, share, favorite, and click to edit in Darkroom.
Settings | Everything you need from getting help, controlling advanced photo and video settings, to managing your Siri shortcuts. Location tracking is off by default, but you can turn this on if you want metadata attached to your photos.
Capture Button | This is our main shutter to shoot photos and bursts, record videos, and capture slow shutter shots. You can also use the volume up button to snap a photo.
Presets | This takes you to the Presets menu where you can create or switch to a predefined Preset.
Capture Mode | Toggle between photo, video, or slow shutter capture modes. The camera icon means you are taking a photo, the video icon means you are shooting a video, and the slow shutter icon means you are taking a slow shutter shot. You'll notice the shutter button also changes between these modes.
Moment Lens | Select which Moment Lens you are shooting with. We add that information to the metadata on your photo. In addition, selecting the Anamorphic lens will de-squeeze your shot, and the Superfish Lens will offer you the option to apply and adjust Distortion Correction.
Flash | Allows you to toggle the flash between on, off, and auto.
Selfie Camera | Switches between the front camera and back camera(s). It works like the toggle in the standard iPhone Camera app so no surprises here.
iPhone Lens | If you have an iPhone with multiple cameras on the back, then in the lower right corner of the screen you will see a selector to pick which lens you shoot with. This is the most helpful if you are using a Moment Lens so the phone doesn't switch on your behalf and provide a black screen. To learn how to use this successfully with Moment Lenses, check out this article.
Top Toolbar Controls
Timer | Toggle to select a zero, three second, or ten second timer for your shots.
Burst | Switch between single photo or burst mode.
Photo Format | Toggle between JPG, TIFF, and RAW. Simplest way to think about them is JPG are smaller files, followed by TIFF, then RAW. To get more in-depth on photo formats, check out this article.
Color Profiles | This is a more advanced feature that should only be used when you plan on color grading your video afterwards. If you're not sure what it is, it's best to stay at Default. Otherwise you can also toggle to Flat and Log.
Resolution | Toggle between 720p, 1080p, and 4K. This is the size, or dimensions, of your video.
Frame Rate | FPS is essentially the amount of still images, or frames, being recorded each second in your video. Switch between frame rates starting at 24 and ending at 240, where supported.
