It’s no secret that a smartphone has replaced a camera for most people. It is easier to use the phone’s camera, and the quality of the pictures is already at a fairly high level. But sometimes you don’t want to waste precious seconds, but take pictures even faster. There is an option in the iPhone settings “Faster shutter response”which will allow the smartphone to take more photos in a shorter period of time.

IPhone photography: speed or quality?
By default, most modern iPhones have a feature that prioritizes faster shooting. This feature changes the way the iPhone processes images so that when you press the shutter button, the smartphone can take more pictures in less time.
How does changing priority to faster shooting work? When you quickly press the shutter button, your iPhone analyzes the actions, understands their sequence, and automatically adjusts the image processing to take more shots per unit of time.
Of course, using this feature means you actually have to choose between quality or quantity. The faster you want to take pictures, the less time the iPhone will have to process the images (software enhancement of the picture). The photo will still look good, but not as awesome as if you were just taking one shot at a time. But at least you will have a better chance of taking a picture at the right moment in time, and then editing the frame.

Don’t miss a valuable moment!
The choice of the shooting scenario is up to the user. You can take more pictures, or you can let your iPhone slower, but better process them. Apple subtly assists users by making Quick Shot priority enabled by default. However, the image quality can still be amazing by simply pressing the shutter button more slowly.
