Have you ever notice a moment when you might want to take a picture while recording a video? At times, you might find a precious moment which you may want to capture as a photo right in the middle of recording a video using your iPhone. And you will definitely miss the moment while trying to switch to the photo mode. So that’s why this feature added to iOS makes a lot of sense.

You don’t need any third party apps in order to do this and it is very easy to carry out. So in this article, we've explained how you can take pictures while recording video on iPhone easily.

Now open the Camera app of your iPhone

Then switch to video mode and start recording.

Then tap on the white button to at the left/bottom side of the videos start/stop button. It depends on which orientation you are using to record either portrait or landscape mode.

That’s all, very simple.

So when you click the button while recording, the screen will flash white to inform that you have taken or captured the photo. Then the picture will be stored in your Camera roll normally. You can tap the photo-shutter button multiple times to take multiple pictures while recording. But burst mode feature cannot be accessed.

About the image resolution

Capturing photos while in the middle of recording a video has its own drawbacks. You can’t get the normal high-resolution images you get with the normal camera mode. For instance, the max resolution when you click a photo whilst recording a video is around 1.2MP. Then in pixels, that would be 1280x720px. Now compare that to the typical image resolution in iPhone 5s (8MP) and you know that it’s not even comparable. However, you can still get to capture a good moment without interrupting the video.

And also, you can’t change the auto-focus or exposures. Well that’s not that necessary because you don’t need a separate auto-focus or exposure setting at that moment mostly.

The feature was first shipped with the iPhone 5,  but with the latest iOS and iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus, both the quality of the photos and videos have improved, thanks to the iPhone’s improved camera.
