iOS 7 Allows Camera Zoom During Video Capture


With iOS 7, Apple users not only get an all new Jony Ive-style “flatter design”, but also a handful of new features. Discovered by the folks over at iDownloadBlog, one of these new features is the ability to zoom during video capture, something that was not previously available on Apple’s mobile operating system.

While shooting a video using an iOS 7 device, users can access the Camera’s zoom controls just like they can while taking a still picture. Once the red button is tapped for beginning video capture, users can use the pinch gesture to zoom in and out during video capture. Users can also tap-to-focus on closeups while shooting the video. Furthermore, a still image can also be saved during video capture by tapping the white button that appears to the left.

Check out a quick demo below:

Do you find iOS 7’s video zooming and simultaneous still image capture features useful?
