iOS 5 Camera Can Use Earphone Volume Control to Capture Pics

With the launch of iOS 5 there’s a bunch of features that are being discovered as more users update their iPhones. One of those is the new camera functionality. We already know of the double tap on the lock screen to get to launch the camera. We also know that the up volume button can also act as the shutter button. What we learn today is that the headphone volume control can also be used as a shutter button.

Although nothing too amazing, it does open the camera up capturing shots at more difficult angles as you can use the headphone + volume button as a remote shutter making it a little easier to position the phone to get the picture you want.

The video below gives a very brief demo of how it works:
