Thought for the day: Live Photos

Live Photos fixes this by taking pictures beginning 1.5 seconds before you press the shutter and keeping taking the picture for another 1.5 seconds afterwards.
You can then select the best frames to export as a .jpg or keep all as a short video clip. This is very helpful for certain fields of photography.
Live Photos are available on iPhones and maybe other cell phones. You can sort of get the same effect by taking 20+ frames a second (a number of mirrorless cameras can do this) but this won’t go back in time and uses a lot of extra memory card space. I don’t know of any DSLR or Mirrorless cameras that have this wonderful feature.
This is a really useful and underutilized feature. I wish it was on all cameras, not just a few phone cameras.
