iPhone 5 Can Capture Photos During Video Recording

On September 28, 2012

The new iPhone from Apple comes with a unique function, probably useful for most users. This function allows us to capture photos while recording video and in the image below you can see its interface while using the camera application from iPhone 5 to record a video. To the right side of the video recording button there is a button that once pressed a picture will automatically be saved in the Camera Roll of your terminal. These photos are not specially marked in the application, will be saved just like any other pictures available there.

Leaving aside explanations about usage we can say that the pictures were recorded during filming 1080p resolution, ie 1920 x 1080, takes up less space than normal images, but have a lower exposure time and a zoom from the recording. You can see the difference in the pictures below, the first being made during a recording, the latter being made immediately after the recording. Since you already are recording something, I don’t know how necessary it is to take a picture of what you are filming, but iPhone 5 will allow you to do this, so you never have to use special applications.

Although the function is available only on the iPhone 5, it will be activated by jailbreak on other devices.
