If access to camera controls such as the flash, HDR and timer was not bad enough, it has become a lot more annoying on recent iPhones such as the X, X S and 1
Of course you can use Accessibility to make the options easier to reach, but this takes your attention away from what you are trying to achieve. So if you like photography in portrait mode, but are constantly struggling with the top controls of the camera, you should give CamControl X from FoxFort Mobile a try.
Step 1: Install Packix Repo
CamControls X isn & # 39; t available within Cydia or Sileo, so you must first install the Packix repo. Feel free to proceed to the second step if you already have the repo. If this is not the case, go to the "Resources" page in both apps and add repo.packix.com to the list. Go to our detailed manuals below if you want more help.
Step 2: Install CamControls X
With Packix repo added, you can now install CamControls X. Perform a search for "CamControls X" in Cydia or Sileo, then press & # 39; Install & # 39; or & # 39; Retrieve & # 39; and follow the prompts to start installing the tweak.
CamControls X does not automatically turn on as soon as your iPhone resprings, so you need to go to Settings and open the page of the tweak, then tap the switch next to "Enabled" to enable it manually. Once you've done that, you don't have to reposition your iPhone – just kill the camera via the app switcher and open it again for changes.
Move down next to the upper controls for easier access, CamControls X offers you the option to customize the Camera app user interface. From the CamControls X Settings page, you can enable "Transparent bottom bar" to give the main controls a clear background and adjust the viewfinder in the "Camera View Mode" menu.
As shown in the images below, leave the "Camera Display Mode" setting to " By default, "the viewfinder does not interfere, while you choose" Maximum ", it makes noticeably larger. And just as the name suggests, selecting" Full Screen (Experimental) "turns the full screen of your iPhone into a viewfinder.  (1) Standard (2) Maximized (3) Full screen
It is worth noting that enabling "Transparent bottom bar" does not work when "Camera View Mode" is set to "Standard", but the setting works when the mode is set to "Maximize" or "Full Screen (Experimental)" and further expands your field of view to make capturing or recording moments a lot more convenient.
Which camera mode you choose, photos & # 39; s and videos & # 39; s You've taken or shot, appear almost exactly the same – whether captured in portrait or landscape. That said, images taken in "Maximize" or "Full Screen" are slightly wider than those taken in the "Default setting, but are almost unnoticeable.
