Why isn't shooting video on my iPhone in widescreen?

Jul 25, 2013

One of the simplest and most common questions I get is “How can you see your footage when capturing video on an iPhone the same way as it will appear on your TV?”  Well, this is a very good question and there is a very simple answer.

When in video mode tap the screen twice.  That’s it!  You’ll notice your viewing area will change to a 1920×1080 aspect ratio.

So now when you are shooting that great video of your child, family member, panoramic shot of nature you’ll be seeing your shot exactly how it will appear on your TV screen.
