Apple announces new iPhones, the iPhone 13 series. We have the same four models that were launched last year which are the iPhone 13, iPhone 13 mini, iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max with fairly subtle upgrades in all components of the phones, as the cameras became It's better, video shooting is smarter, screens are sharper, and notches are slimmer. In this article, we will mention what Apple focused on, which is cameras and photography.
iPhone 13 cameras are smarter
Apple introduced several updated camera features, some hardware-based and some based on artificial intelligence algorithms. As usual, Apple has made improvements to the cameras, clearer photos in low light thanks to larger sensors, larger apertures, the optical image stabilization system, the lenses are placed diagonally, and other features.
Apple also launched cinematic video mode, and it serves that technology and makes it come out well is the new A15 chip and graphics processor, which allows the phone to do Scorsese-type shooting with your video, and this is attributed to Martin Scorsese, a well-known American film director, who created ambitious things in Photography and directing made him one of the most important filmmakers in the late twentieth century and early twenty-first century, a technique called “rack focus” to focus on the subject and make everything else blurry, and this is a widespread imaging technique in films, where the camera will focus on a person, then focus shifts to a person Something else or something in the background, and you might come back to focus on a close target. This happens based on artificial intelligence algorithms, where the phone automatically understands the target to focus on.
It is worth noting that the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max have identical camera systems, unlike what happened with the iPhone 12 Pro and Pro Max.
iPhone 13 and 13 mini camera specifications
◉ Both iPhone 13 and 13 mini feature a dual-lens camera system. The wide lens has an f/1.6 aperture, while the ultra-wide lens has an f/2.4 aperture, the ultra-wide camera provides better low-light performance, and the wide camera captures 47% more light.
◉ There is no Telephoto lens on the iPhone 13 and 13 mini, so these models are limited to 2x optical zoom and up to 5x digital zoom.
◉ Optical image stabilization is available with sensor shift, a feature that was previously limited to Pro models, but this time Apple brought it to all versions of the iPhone 13.
iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max camera specifications
◉ iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max have a triple-lens camera system with f/2.8 Telephoto, f/1.5 wide lens, and f/1.8 ultra-wide lens.
◉ The wide and ultra-wide lenses have been upgraded compared to the lenses on the iPhone 13 models, which perform significantly better in low-light conditions. The wide lens features a wider aperture that allows more light to enter and is the largest sensor in the iPhone so far.
◉ The ultra-wide lens captures up to 92% of the light, resulting in a significant improvement in quality. The 77mm Telephoto lens features a 3x optical zoom, up from 2.5x on the iPhone 12 Pro, and with the addition of the ultra-wide lens, there is a 12x optical zoom and 6x digital zoom support.
◉ There is also a LiDAR scanner, which is not available on the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 mini.
New camera features in iPhone 13
Apple introduced several new features that take advantage of the more advanced image signal processor built into the A15 chip, namely:
The camera uses focus on the intended subject and then shifts that focus seamlessly when capturing video. Focus is maintained on the subject while the background is blurred, and it can change focus automatically when a new subject is about to enter the scene. Blur and focus after video capture can also be adjusted through the Photos app.
Smart HDR 4
Photography with this technology recognizes up to four people in a scene and optimizes contrast, lighting, and even skin tones for each person so that everyone looks their best.
Shooting modes are smart and adjustable filters, and they can do things like enhance colors or make colors muted—not too bright, dim, dull, or gray—without affecting skin tone. Styles are applied selectively to the image, unlike a filter applied to the entire image. Photographic modes include Vibrant, Enhances Colour, Rich Contrast, Darker Shades and Deeper Colours, Warm, Emphasizes Gold, or Cool, Emphasizes Blue. The color and warmth of each style can be customized, so you can get exactly the look you want.
Existing camera capabilities such as Night Mode, Portrait Mode, Portrait Lighting, and Deep Fusion are also supported.
Camera features in iPhone 13 Pro
There are many features that are limited to the iPhone 13 Pro and Pro Max models that will not be available on the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 mini.
The ultra-wide camera on iPhone 13 Pro models can focus as far as 2cm, making it ideal for close-ups. You can take macro photos or macro videos, including slow motion and time lapse.
Telephoto night mode
Night mode is available for the telephoto lens for the first time, and night mode is available on all Pro cameras.
Night mode portrait
Night mode images require a LiDAR scanner, which is still limited to Pro models.
Since the iPhone 13 Pro models are the only models that have a Telephoto lens, Telephoto Cinematic Mode is a professional feature. It works with Wide, Telephoto and TrueDepth cameras.
It is a technology that will be released later this year, that allows users to record and edit in ProRes or Dolby Vision mode, you can review this article for more information about this technology – this link.
