My iPhone is stuck in video mode; I can;t take still pictures any more, it wants to make movies all the time.

How do I get it back to still pictures?

Thanks

I had my iphone camera lockup once.

Have you rebooted it?

Hold the top button in for a few seconds and shut it down.


Once i did this my camera hasn't given me an issue since (months).  Just a weird glitch.

There is a Video toggle to the lower right of the Camera screen. Did you try that?  I don't know if Video mode survives a hard restart (as tailoreddigital suggested above) or not.

I didn't think he might be overlooking the switch, definitely check that out.

I just tested what Thinkpads_User stated about the video setting suviving the reboot and it does.    

If the iphone is glitching the reboot should help.     But if it's just a matter of learning about the switch the Thinkpads_User has you pointed in the right direction, check out this picture,

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

To all,

I saw that switch; thought that would be it.

Earlier, it would not slide. Now it slides.

So I have it set on photo.

I take a photo, it appears to take it, then the camera disappears & it goes back to the main screen.

I look in photos, the photo I took is not there.

So it's more than that.

Thanks
