Press and Hold a Cross Hair to Lock it (Blue is Locked | White is Unlocked).
Double tap anywhere on the screen to rejoin Exposure and Focus back into one.


Grids and Level


Grids help you line up and visualize your shot better, by drawing some lines over the viewfinder to assist. There are a few basic principles for better photography, grids can help achieve them. The options are Golden Ratio (Recommended), Rule of Thirds, and Square (For Instagram). To turn Grids on, go to Settings –> Grid and select the desired Grid option. You’ll also notice a Level. This helps you make sure you’re lining up with the horizon.


Effects


Burst – Turning Burst on enables you to capture a lot of photos very quickly in your desired format – even RAW! Just hold down the shutter button and fire away. This is great for action shots, and on iPhone 12, you can shoot up to 10 photos per second!

Bracketing – Turn Bracketing on in the main settings menu. The controls will appear in the bottom toolbar. Bracketing allows you to take 3 photos rapidly at 3 different exposures. The 1st will be the exposure as you see it in the viewfinder, the 2nd will be darker than you see it and the 3rd will be lighter. The further from default you move the indicator, the more extreme the exposure difference is. From here, you can simply select the exposure you like best, or merge all three together to create an HDR photo in software such as Aurora HDR.

Photo Quality Setting – Set the Quality in the main settings menu, Settings –> Processed Photo Quality. Quality is the highest quality photo and uses all of Apple’s latest technology including HDR and Deep Fusion (iPhone 12) to deliver amazing photos.


Resolution and Frame Rates


4K – This is the highest quality the phone offers. It takes the most memory but I only shoot in 4K because the clarity is just that much better!

Not all of the frame rates are available in every resolution. This is limited by Apple and the iPhone model you have.

24fps – This is for the “Cinematic Look” used in Movies.

30fps – This your for Standard HDTV video frame rate.

48fps – Use this to create smooth slo-mo’s for 24fps film.

60fps – Use this for action shots and to make the video smoother.

120fps Use this for faster action scenes and if you want to edit in slow-mo later

240fps Use this for Super fast action and even slower slo-mo

Filmmakers use the 180 rule, which means your shutter speed should be double the speed of your frame rate. If you’re shooting at 30 FPS, set your shutter speed to 1/60th, and if you’re shooting at 60 FPS, set the shutter speed to 1/120th.


Color Profiles – This is an advanced feature and best applied if you are going to edit your videos with a real editing too, like Filmoral.

Default – This is the most natural looking real-time color profile.

LOG – This is an even lower contrasted version of a flat color profile.

Flat – This is a low contrast, high dynamic range that provides a solid base for color grading in post.


Moment Lens – If you are using a Moment Lens, select the Lens you have attached.


Bracketing – Turn Bracketing on in the main settings menu. The controls will appear in the bottom toolbar. Bracketing allows you to take 3 photos rapidly at 3 different exposures. The 1st will be the exposure as you see it in the viewfinder, the 2nd will be darker than you see it and the 3rd will be lighter. The further from default you move the indicator, the more extreme the exposure difference is. From here, you can simply select the exposure you like best, or merge all three together to create an HDR photo in software such as Aurora HDR.

Photo Quality Setting – Set the Quality in the main settings menu, Settings –> Processed Photo Quality. Quality is the highest quality photo and uses all of Apple’s latest technology including HDR and Deep Fusion (iPhone 12) to deliver amazing photos.


Variable ND Filters


When shooting with a Wide Open Aperture (ƒ1.6 – ƒ2.0) your video will often be over exposed. Try using a Variable ND Filter to reduce your exposure. This will dramatically improve your chances at catching your shot correctly. Variable ND filters make it possible to maintain your desired exposure settings, while still reducing the amount of motion blur being produced by a slow shutter speed (1/48th or 1/60th). Variable ND Filters can be helpful for shooting timelapses or very slow motion that requires additional tools to perfect that shot. When shooting with a Fixed Wide Open Aperture, a Fixed Shutter Speed and Low ISO, the Variable ND Filter now contols your Exposure.


Moment Pro Camera Presets


Use Moment Pro Camera Presets to create your own based using your favorite camera settings and lenses. Access the Moment app quickly using Siri Shortcuts using your Voice, Widgets or the Shortcuts App. Start up the Moment Pro Camera in any Preset of your choose and access the shortcut using Siri, the Shortcuts App or by adding them to your Widgets panel.

To Create a Preset, set up everything in the viewfinder exactly as you want it. Open the Preset Menu by tapping the Preset Button to the right of the shutter. Then hit “Create a New Preset”. Name the Preset and hit Save To use a Preset, open the Preset Menu and tap the Preset you want to use. The Camera is part of the Preset, so if you Switch Cameras, you will need one preset per camera.

Slow Shutter Mode

DSLR Cameras capture long exposure shots by keeping the shutter open for a long period of time. On an iPhone, you can’t do that. To create Long Exposures, Moment Pro Camera captures a sequence of images and blends them into one final photo. Remember to shoot on a Steady Tripod.

There are two types of long exposures available; Motion Blur and Light Trails.

Motion Blur – This option averages frames together and is great for blurring the motion of things like waterfalls or people, or for canceling out cars on a freeway.

Light Trails – This option focuses on capturing and blurring the movement of lights or bright points, allowing for streaks of lights from things like cars, fireworks, or waving around a light. Set the exposure duration. In Slow Shutter mode there are a number of exposure durations, beginning with a 1/3 and going up to 30 Seconds. Bulb Mode allows you to have ultimate control over the exposure duration and will capture as long as you need. This is handy for Astrophotography.


How To Save Moment Pro Camera Photos and Videos to your Mac

1. Connect your iPhone via USB to Lightning Cable to your Mac and Launch Image Capture.

2. Select the Photos and Video Clips you want to Save to your Computer. Click Save To... and select a directory on your Mac.

3. After File Transfer, you can Delete any Photos or Video Clips from your iPhone by Selecting and pressing the Delete Key.

Meta's Best Mobile Videography TipsAlways Lock the Shutter Speed at 2x the Frame Rate (1/48th or 1/60th). Keep ISO below ISO 100 to Prevent Overexposure. Attach a Variable ND Filter to reduce the amount of light. Meta uses ISO 100 Indoors and ISO 22 Outdoors.

How To Use Timelapse Mode in Moment Pro Camera – Watch a Video

Capture Mode –> Set to the TimeLapse Icon for TimeLapse.

Moment Pro Camera can be placed in Timelapse Mode in Capture Mode in the Bottom Controls. This is an alternate form of Framerate System by which Moment Pro Camera will take video images based on Seconds per Frame rather than Frames per Second. Set your Tripod, Dial in your Settings and let Moment Pro Camera do the magic!

Timelapse can be used to create beautiful, smooth clips that capture over a long period of time and play back at an accelerated pace. Shoot a sunset scene or capture the hustle and bustle of an entire day’s downtown traffic in one small finished video.

Set Frame and Interval –> Manually adjust the Capture Interval and Number of Frames in the Control Bar, and the Capture Duration will adjust Accordingly.

Capture Settings –> Capture in a variety of Formats and Resolutions including RAW and HEIF. Shoot in MAX, 4K, 1080p or 720p Resolutions.

Slow Shutter –> This is just like Slow Shutter Mode, but on each frame in your Timelapse Video.

Bracketing –> Capture bracketed exposure shots at each interval to make HDR Timelapses. Also available in Photo Mode.

Video Export –> Select your Bitrate and Export in 720p, 1080p 4K or MAX.

Frame Export –> Export Timelapses at Individual Frames including full 12.2 MP RAW Photos (4032 x 3024 Pixels).
