It's not possible to remove or disable Time Lapse, and there's also no possibility to revert to a version before iOS 8.2 or 8.3.
Thanks for that info. I'm now asking myself what possible use is that feature
I don't get it. Are you saying the iPad changes camera mode randomly or in a manner that's unpredictable?
Most people would check what mode the camera app was in before hitting the record/take a photo button. If you don't like the Time Lapse feature, then just don't select it.
Again, maybe I'm not understanding the problem.
I think the OP might be taking pictures without always double checking to see what mode the camera is in before taking a picture.
It's used for making time lapse movies, such as a flower blooming.
A little note:
When you take a video or use time lapse, the button is red. For photos of any kind (usual, square, pano), the button you press is white:
So when you want to take a photo/video next time, make sure the button has the right colour.
Alternatively, there are other camera apps that make it harder to get into time lapse mode accidentally. I like Camera Awesome much better than the standard Apple app.
How good that post turned out to be and I will answer each comment in turn.
DHewson, I didn't know that time lapse had been introduced as part of the latest version, so when I flipped from photo thinking I was going to video, it was in fact time lapse, and happened to be a recording of my three yr old grand daughters birthday lunch that I wanted to send to her mother, who is currently serving with HM Armed Forces abroad for six months, and she had missed this special occasion. Had I been aware that this wretched time lapse was a feature, I would have made sure it had not been selected.
scifan, yes I appreciate that some people might wish to record a flower opening, but my bet is that they are a rare breed.
J.A. that red/white tip is good, I will remember it, and the red video has a white ring round it. Hopefully this will be seen in daylight.
and Lanny in St Louis, I will go look for that app and report back.
I think the exclamation WOW! comes to mind Larry in St Louis. I have installed your Camera Awesome app and yes, even without leaving my chair, I have taken a shot and am satisfied with the result, but more than that, the pinch to zoom worked a treat. Hopefully tomorrow I will give it a good test. Currently we have a sea mist that prevents visibility.
Without wishing to run down Apple, if this proves to be the success I hope it will be, I won't bother with the pre-installed camera stuff again.
