Take photos while recording video on iPhone & iPad
- There are times when you don’t want to stop recording video, and yet you want to take a photo. With an iPhone or iPad, you can do both! While the Camera app is recording video, simply click the white circle on the screen. The center of the circle will blink, indicating that a photo has been saved to your Photo Library.
- Photos taken while recording video are wide screen instead of the usual 4:3 standard aspect ratio for photos. You can crop if needed.
- Photos taken while recording video are of a lower quality than those taken when you are not also recording video.
- Taking a screenshot after a video is saved is an alternative to snapping a photo while filming. Play the video and pause at just the right spot. Make sure to tap the screen to hide the buttons and controls before screenshotting.
- Some Android devices display a camera icon while shooting video. Clicking that button saves a photo.
