Neat Tricks for Taking Clear Pictures with Your iPhone 4s

The iPhone 4s's camera is pretty sweet; it takes high-res pictures and it also has touch focus, but it would be even sweeter if you could only hold it steady while tapping on the camera icon on the screen to take a shot! It is extremely aggravating when you try to hold the iPhone steady only to mess up the shot when you tap on the camera icon.

Well there's actually a simple solution for that and you do not need to download any app or change any of the phone's settings. All you need to do is just press the volume up button on the side of the iPhone 4s and it will take a snapshot, this is a lot easier since you are holding the iPhone pretty much the same way you hold a camera, but wait! There is another easier way to take great pictures using the iPhone 4.

If you want an even steadier shot you can also use the volume up button that is on the earphones as well. Now you can just lean the iPhone on any surface and then use the volume controls on the earphones to take a shot. These work well when taking self-portraits and other shots where you have to raise the iPhone over your head. But if you think it stops here then you are sorely mistaken.

You can use the same trick of taking pictures using the earphone volume control using Bluetooth-enable earphones as well! Now you are not encumbered by the earphone cable dangling in front of your face when taking portraits to use as your new Facebook profile picture!

This feature is not only available in the new iPhone 4s, you can actually use these neat camera control tricks on older devices, you only need to upgrade to the new iOS 5.1.
