Any iOS device with a camera
Apple introduced video recording capability to the iPhone 3GS and added advanced features to the iPhone 4, including HD recording, tap-to-focus, and LED flash for recording in low light. As with most features on the iPhone, recording video is very simple. Here’s how to do it:
- Open Camera.
- Swipe the switch on the lower right corner from camera to video.
- Tap on the Switch Camera icon on the upper right corner (iPhone 4 only) to use the front or rear-facing camera.
- Tap on the part of the screen you want to focus the video on. (iPhone 4 only) 5.) Tap on the Flash icon on the upper left corner (iPhone 4 only), and tap it again to change it to either On, Off, or Auto.
- Tap on the Record button at the bottom center of the screen to start recording and tap on it again to stop recording.
- When you’re done recording, the iPhone will save the video under Photos>Camera Roll.
Watch your disk space when recording video
Before you start filming your next feature-length Hollywood production from your iPhone, keep in mind that recording video can quickly fill up your iPhone’s disk space (at a rate of about 80MB per minute of video). You can check how much space you have left on your iPhone by opening Settings>General>About.
