Only that Apple introduced the new iPhone. Immediately rolled out three models of the iPhone Xs iPhone Xs iPhone Max and Xr. And of course, we hasten to tell you about the cameras in these new products.
In fact, in terms of cameras in the new iPhone, virtually nothing has changed compared to last year’s iPhone X. In models Xs, and Xs at Max two cameras – the main wide-angle and telephoto. Xr left only the main module, the benefit is identical to the Xs, not from X. the Resolution of all matrices is also 12 megapixels, but about the main said is “all-new” that is recycled. Pixel size 1.4 µm, that is sensor size more. Aperture main camera remained at f/1.8, and the second f/2.4. Both cameras as before equipped with optical image stabilization that works in video mode.
All the new iPhone can record video in 4K resolution at 60 frames per second and full HD video at 240 fps. Promise of improved dynamic range when shooting video and the maximum cinematic pictures. This just believe. Stabilization and the overall quality in video in the iPhone is traditionally the best in class. And the sound is now recorded with four microphones in stereo.
Due to the new processor, which is responsible for the artificial intelligence mode, “Portrait Light”, and softwaree background blur when shooting portraits will highlight the hair and other small objects more accurately. Interestingly, softwaree blur works in iPhone Xr, although there is no body of the camera. However this we have seen in smartphones Pixel, and in a lot of Chinese smartphones. But due to the algorithms for processing and allocated for these needs of processors, most likely, the blur will work on a level with the same Pixel, which shows excellent results.
In portrait mode you can now change the amount of blur in the background after the snapshot is already done (we have seen this sooo long ago in Huawei P9/P10). And the blur has become more photographic. Used not a simple blur on the Gauss, and with the optical effect of the larger cameras. But even in the pictures from the presentation were already visible some artifacts of blur, so you need to test it in real conditions.
Probably the most interesting feature of the new iPhone is a Smart HDR. With it, you will get a quality HDR image with zero lag when you press the shutter button. This is especially critical when shooting something moving – athlete, child, dog, etc. is Not clear whether it would be possible to use at least some burst shooting simultaneously with Smart HDR (most likely not), or at least as often you can press on the movie button. This function will need to check and see if she can compete with the “divine” implementation of HDR in the Pixel 2.
For photographers/videographers will also be a nice bonus protection Xs and Xs is Max according to the IP68 standard. This means that without the risk you can take pictures and videos (especially the slow mo), jumping/floating in the pool, or some clean mountain lake. Xr left the usual protection IP67, which is also good, but does not inspire such confidence when immersed in water.
As for the displays: Xs has got OLED display 5.8″ with a resolution of 2436×1125 pixels and True Tone, Xs Max – OLED display 6.5″ with a resolution of 2688х1242 pixels and True Tone, Xr – 6.1″ LCD display Liquid Retina resolution 1792х828 pixels and True Tone. All displays are equipped with a HDR 10.
For prices: Xr $750, Xs – $1000, Xs Max – from $1100. Naturally, this price for the USA, excluding taxes. We will be much more expensive.
