Apple’s latest iPhone has been given a few camera updates, making it an even better option for photographers. Besides the new image signal processor, the camera on the iPhone 7 has a broader color gamut that improves images, especially for greens and reds.
The camera also has improved low-light shooting capabilities. It includes a new Portrait Mode that uses wide-angle and telephoto lenses to draw out the subject while blurring the background.
The iPhone 7 and 7 Plus each feature an improved 12-megapixel iSight camera with a 6-element f/1.8 aperture lens, an image signal processor, and an advanced four-LED flash that puts out 50 percent more light and reaches 50 percent further. It also has an image stabilization system compensating for hand shakiness to get sharper photos in low light. It also has a new shallow depth of field portrait mode with a dual-lens setup that lets you blur the background and capture crisp, crisp, sharp images even when you’re near your subject.
The new telephoto lens in the iPhone 7 Plus is probably the most impressive feature, as it includes a 2x optical zoom that’s better than digital zoom. This enables you to snap more explicit pictures up to 10x closer to your subject without the typical noise that’scaused by digital zoom. You can even use the iPhone 7’s Live Photo mode to focus on your favorite topic.
The iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus feature new cameras that deliver better exposure, lower noise, and richer colors than the previous models. There’s a 12-megapixel high-speed sensor with a 6-element f/1.8 aperture lens that lets 50 percent more light in and keeps photos sharp at the edges. In addition, a new image signal processor sets exposure, focus, and white balance and uses wide color capture to bring more true-to-life images.
The camera also includes optical image stabilization that compensates for slight movements and hand shakiness when taking photos, enabling three times longer exposures than the iPhone 6s. The iPhone 7 Plus features a telephoto lens that can create a 2x optical zoom and support Portrait mode with a fantastic depth effect. It also has a redesigned four-LED rear flash that puts out 50 percent more light and reaches 50 percent further. The Face ID feature enables automatic focusing and tracking of subjects, so it’s more convenient than ever to snap pictures of people without much fiddling around.
The Apple iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus have some serious oomph regarding battery life. On a test involving continuous web surfing over AT&T’s 4G LTE network, the iPhone 7 lasted 9 hours and 3 minutes, significantly improving over last year’s tame 1715 mAh handset. The 7 Plus boasts a jumbo 2,900 mAh battery, more than double the old lady’s. It also supports a pair of esoteric USB-C ports, which should keep you in the game as long as you don’t need to charge a device that isn’t yours. The iPhone above 7 is available starting September 12th for $600 on contract. If you’re in the market for a new smartphone, this is one of the best bets we’ve seen all year.
The iPhone 7’s camera is a massive upgrade from the 6S. It features a wide-angle 12-megapixel sensor with f/1.8 aperture, optical image stabilization, and a revamped Apple image signal processor.
The camera is also faster, with a 60 percent improvement in shutter speed and 30 percent more energy efficiency. The camera also supports wide color capture and fourth-generation tone mapping.
In addition, the iPhone 7’s new camera app lets you use the two cameras simultaneously for a shallow depth-of-field portrait mode that makes photos “pop,” as you would with a DSLR. It uses a dual-lens to recognize a subject and blur the background.
The iPhone 7 and 7 Plus each feature a new 7-megapixel FaceTime HD camera with an enhanced sensor and auto image stabilization for better selfies and clearer FaceTime calls. It can identify faces and body parts and uses a wide-color capture lens for better low-light images. It can even shoot in RAW image format, allowing you to process photos later.
