Your iPhone has a smart zoom trick that you may not be aware of, where you can zoom in and out quickly and easily while shooting a video with the iPhone. It is known to everyone that the zoom is generally done with your two fingers, “pinch” to zoom out, or spread them out to zoom in. But this can be difficult sometimes while recording video on iPhone. This can cause choppy zooming, which may not look good in the final shots. Now user TikTokBenObiTech has revealed a clever trick that is not obvious to many that makes zooming in and out much easier.
To zoom in on the new trick:
◉ First open the camera.
◉ Press and hold the capture button to start recording the video.
◉ Then simply drag your finger up or down the screen to zoom in or out respectively.
◉ This means that you can zoom in and out in a super smooth way with just one hand.
◉ You can do this movement in photo or video modes.
◉ This trick also works on Snapchat, so you can shoot and use zoom in and out right from within the app's camera.
