***** IMPORTANT TIPS & TRICKS ******
1) Holding your camera (i.e. your iOS device) very still & stable is crucial to taking good action sequence photo:
- If you use an iPhone 4/4S, you can simply place your phone on a stable flat surface so that your iPhone 4/4S stands on it's side. Otherwise we suggest that you simply use blu-tack or look for a tripod mount to hold your iOS device on a stable surface.
- If the "shake indicator" next to the "Start" button flashes, your iOS device is not stable enough. Holding your iPhone/iPod touch by hand while shooting an action will usually fail.
2) A clean and static background:
- Make sure there is no moving object on the background scene (e.g. trees leaves, pedestrians, fish tanks….)
- Shooting actions against a single color background/wall is a easy and good start
3) Good lighting and object contrast:
- Outdoor natural sunlight usually results in higher quality photos and is highly recommended for beginners
- Good object contrast such as deep colored object against light colored background generally product better results
- Good & even lighting generally produces less shadows & less noisy pictures and thus improve resultant image quality
- Automatic action sequence image processing - No tedious manual post-processing is required to combine images
- Adjustable frame rate: 3 - 10 fps
- Adjustable capture startup delay: 1.5 - 3 sec
- Adjustable action capture duration: 1 - 5 sec
- Sound alert on capture start (*)
- Sound alert on capture end
- Adjustable "Tolerance" to fine tune resultant image quality
- Stability / Shake indicator
- Tilt and level indicator
- Grid lines/dots/rulers overlay in black or white
- Save to photos album

* Make sure the targeted moving object does NOT appear in the frame during the startup delay period. Action Sequence Cam takes this opportunity to "study" the background for processing.
**Please note that while Action Sequence Cam is clever, it is not perfect. Pixel drop out or other visual artifices are normal. Follow tips & tricks to improve resultant image quality.
