Camera Phone

Keep your Camera Phone Steady

SUMMARY: Keeping your camera phone steady can result in clearer photos.

Here's a simple camera phone tip that can improve your pictures. The steadier you can keep your camera phone while taking a photograph, the clearer and crisper will be the resulting picture. Even slight movements can blur a picture. This is especially important in darker conditions where your camera phone may take longer exposures to compensate for the lack of light (depending on your camera phone model).

Here are a few tips to keeping your camera phone steady:

1. Rest your elbow or hand on a table or bench while taking a picture.

2. Try to find a solid object such as a tree or a building if outside, or a pole or a chair if inside, to lean up against to add support.

3. Try not to move for a second or two after pressing the camera phone's shutter button, in case the camera phone has a long lag time between the button press and actual exposure.
