Sure you can.
"Of course, most people use their smartphones for pictures the majority of the time, and thankfully, it's pretty easy to disguise what you're doing on a phone.First and foremost, when you're snapping hidden photos with your camera, make sure you're holding it like you're using it to do anything but take a picture.
Position the camera like you're texting, playing a game, or whatever else might natural in the situation you're in. Personally, I prefer the texting position, even though it's often difficult to get a good shot.Second, if you want to conceal what you're doing from anyone behind you, it's important to hide your screen
. On a jailbroken iPhone this is easy with SlyCam since it allows you to take pictures from the Notification Center without anyone behind you seeing the camera screen.
For non-jailbroken iPhone users, we like Real Spy Camera. Not only does the app icon call the app "Easy Calc," you can also shoot video, and use either your front facing or rear facing camera. However, the best feature is the fact you can set up a fake background as well, which means you can actually make your screen look like you're text messaging."
Want some more ideas for taking that naughty little picture on your cellphone without being seen doing it?
One easy way – for guys at least – is place your smart phone into a shirt pocket.
Use tissues for padding if the camera doesn’t quite stick out far enough, and avoid leaning over lest your phone fall out. This is fairly normal place to store your phone, so you’re unlikely to be called out unless your phone starts making shutter sounds. Alternatively, use a front facing trouser pocket, but bear in mind the angle and subject of your photography will be much harder to capture effectively
...With an iPhone, some apps allow you to use the volume switch as a shutter release
– this also works with wired headphones – so you hold the phone more conveniently, and trigger it as if you were simply listening to music."
It's not hard to find advice on using your iPhone camera in stealth mode. And don't forget, there's always an app for that.
Seems a bit of FUD is being tossed about in an attempt to discredit a new product that didn't originate at Apple. I know you hate when that happens to an Apple product, but otherwise I guess you and Hill may think it's OK? I would hope you didn't have a double-standard.Edited by Gatorguy - 12/18/13 at 10:54am
