Apple Shares New iPhone X Photography Tutorial Videos With a Soccer Theme

Apple this morning shared five new iPhone X photography tutorial videos on its website and YouTube channel, with each taking a football (soccer in the U.S.) theme to celebrate the first day of the World Cup.


Each short video walks users through a series of step-by-step instructions on how to use the special shooting modes featured on the iPhone X.

The modes covered in the tutorials include Pano (panoramic), Burst mode, Slo-mo, and one covering best use of backlight when shooting on iPhone X.








Apple has also published a video called "How to Shoot Soccer on iPhone X", which is basically a series of clips showcasing what kind of pitch action can be captured using an iPhone X.


Apple has shared several tutorial videos like this in the past, which are sometimes tied to new releases, but this time Apple has gone with a distinctively event-tied theme in World Cup 2018, which is being held in Russia.

Earlier this week, Apple added several special World Cup features to Siri, enabling users to keep abreast of all the action, stats, and fixtures over the coming weeks. Apple also plans to highlight football apps and games throughout the month, as well as feature World Cup content in the News app, amongst other coverage.

Tutorial videos can typically be found on the separate Apple Support YouTube channel, but these new tutorial videos are on the company's main channel as well as a special photography tutorial section on the Apple website.

That was actually a nice trick with the Pano mode.

I don’t use panoramic mode very often, but slow Mo records some outstanding videos. I watched one recently where some waves were crashing against a rock wall from a lake and you could literally see every droplet of water bouncing off the wall. Just awesome technology to have when you want to explore with the camera capabilities.

Smartphones are the worst possible cameras for sports and action. Almost anything usable/good will have to be closer and posed. You also have to deal with shutter lag and shutter speed issues.

Considering where the vast majority of those photos and videos will be displayed... the general populace really doesn't care. Person sees something and wants a record of it. They have their phone. End of story. Smartphone camera are good enough for that.

There's a very small portion of the populace that cares, or even knows, about shutter lag/speed.

Oh, I definitely agree that most people don’t care. It’s just that Apple shows these very clearly posed pics and people think they can do the same thing. It isn’t just Apple, of course, but many of the companies. Absolutely agree that having a record/moments of an event is something the phone can do easily. But trying to get the kinds of shots they’re showing.... not so much.

If I’m shooting sports I’ll take my Sony Alpha any day... 1/2000th of a second at 200mm, don’t mind if I do!
