How to Use Cinematic Mode on iPhone 13

Cinematic Mode on iPhone 13 allows you to capture video in up to 60 frames per second, with the shutter speed and the aperture (f-number) both locked to “0” and the ISO locked to “100”.

It’s the fastest video mode on iPhone, and the best way to capture beautiful motion in low light conditions.

This mode is ideal for shooting slow-motion videos, and it’s ideal for use on Instagram, too, as you can then upload your video to the platform at up to 60 frames per second.

Apple’s Cinematic Mode: What Is It?

How to Use Cinematic Mode on iPhone 13

The iPhone 13 comes with Apple’s Cinematic Mode, a new video feature. When activated, it allows the device user to add rack focus to their movies automatically, thereby creating depth of field. By deciding which target the recording should focus on, the recording appears more professional and cinematic.

When you can choose which point to focus on while recording the video, you can also change the focus target after it has been recorded. You can also adjust where the emphasis moves, allowing you to swiftly switch between focus targets.

On my iPhone, how can I activate Cinematic Mode?

If you have an iPhone 13, you may use Cinematic Mode right from the camera app on your phone. You won’t be able to use Cinematic Mode if you have an iPhone 12 or earlier. If you have an iPhone 13 and are having issues with Cinematic Mode, check sure you have the most recent iOS version installed. Then, to begin using Cinematic Mode, follow the steps below.

  • On your iPhone 13, open the Camera app.
  • Swipe left on the mode selection bar until Cinematic appears.
  • In Cinematic Mode, you can now record videos.

Applying the Cinematic Mode

When you begin producing films with the new Cinematic Mode, familiarize yourself with the various controls available. Several options can be explored and understood from the recording screen. To access the depth of field settings, press the f symbol on the button. You have complete control over this. When recording, it will have a direct impact on how blurry the background behind your focal item seems (you can also change this later on during editing).

If you have an iPhone 13 Pro or Pro Max, you can also use the 1x button to switch between the Telephoto and Wide lenses included in your device. You may also rapidly modify the exposure on the recording by tapping the plus and minus sign buttons.

Is Cinematic Mode Available on the iPhone 13?

Cinematic Mode is incorporated right into the camera app on every iPhone 13 device. The iPhone 13, iPhone 13 mini, iPhone 13 Pro, and iPhone 13 Pro Max are the models.

While Cinematic Mode is available on all iPhone 13 models, only the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max will have the option to switch to the Telephoto lens before commencing a video. The depth of field options offered with the new recording mode is still available on all other models.
