The iPhone 13 and the iPhone 13 Pro debuted – some of their most exciting features have been included in the camera modules on the back, as we have expected from the new iPhones.
iPhone 13: The 3 new camera features
Whether you prefer shooting sleeves, video or a mixed diet, there are several exciting new picture options on iPhones this year, and we compliment the best of their fresh snapping skills with this useful guide.
Naturally, the new camera technology was provided for iPhone 13 Singapore, the latter receiving the largest sensors to date on any Apple smartphone. But these days, computer software features drive major improvements in our pocket cameras, and Apple has brought new ones again for us to take a spin.
Mode of cinema (iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro)
The new 'Cinematic mode' is the largest new camera update for video shooters on iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro. We saw the capacity to automate a 'focus rack' on other phones like the Sony Xperia 1 II, but we saw that the first time we saw the technology is on iPhones – and Apples' new mode seems to go far beyond its competition.
In 'Cinematic mode' there are two key computational tricks. The first is that algorithms that Apple says are trained in classical filmmaking are automatically designed to provide a typical 'focus rack' for your scenario.
In Apple's example of a Knives Out-style short film, people mainly walked into the frame and glanced at another person — the iPhone 13 series will reportedly identify what's going on and concentrate immediately on you. You can also override it with the regular tap-to-lock focus.
Styles of photography (iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro)
The Photographic Styles is another potentially beneficial and if rather a basic option that is accessible for the entire iPhone 13 series. These operate somewhat like Adobe Lightroom presets, so you may create a certain view for your images, only when they are used instead of after creation.
Thus, the computer algorithms of the iPhone may decide which local areas of an image should be modified, leaving things like skin tones alone. Deceivingly, there will be only four 'Photographic styles,' including 'rich contrast' and 'vibrant' to choose from.
Larger sensors for the camera (iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro)
Both the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro have seen the bigger sensors for their main "wide" cameras. The iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Mini inherit the same main camera as the iPhone 12 Pro Max last year, with 1,7-micron pixels, optical stability for sensor shifts and aperture f/1,6. In view of the iPhone 12, Pro Max is now the third-largest camera device in our guide, which offers good camera performance.
Not to be outdated, the iPhone 13 Pro's main 'wide' cameras offer the largest ever sensors on any iPhone, 1.9-micron pixels supported by the same sensor shift stabilisation and a brilliant f/1.5 lens. This improves 2.2 times in low-light shooting compared to the iPhone 12 Pro Max according to Apple, however, it is not precisely obvious what this refers to. Noise? Range of dynamics? Soon we will find out when we take them out for a test run.
The effect of traditional hardware enhancements like sensor size has now been overshadowed by computer increases like smart HDR 4 and night mode, therefore it is the latest in this roster.
But light lenses and robust sensors are definitely a fantastic basis for any camera on your smartphone, and we look forward to seeing how iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro models work in the real world shortly.
