Apple has recently announced the new iPhone 14 series in the September event, taking the internet by storm. What’s more fascinating for gadget enthusiasts is that for the very first time, there are huge noticeable differences between the iPhone Pro and non-Pro variants. So let’s talk about the major highlight of the iPhone 14 series, which would be its mind-blowing front and rear cameras.
What are the upgrades for iPhone 14 camera?
The most striking camera upgrade must be the 48 MP sensor in the iPhone 14 Pro Camera. This feature allows users to click pictures using the ProRAW for capturing 48MP photographs. Also, the camera has a newly added zooming feature between the shots taken in 1x and telephoto 3x.
Professional photographers also believe that when the iPhone 14 Pro camera is left in auto mode, it can choose between pixel-binning and high-resolution shots automatically. Additionally, when the ProRAW mode is turned on, users can click pictures in 48 MP, while the device uses machine learning and post-processing techniques to produce higher-resolution photographs.
With the camera, you get 2x optical quality zoom that enables users to shoot professional shots in normal and portrait shooting modes. The ultra-wide camera is also bigger, although it is still 12 MP in resolution. Also, with the F2.2 aperture and the Photogenic Engine, you can click great pictures in low light. All of the aforementioned features are available in the Pro versions. However, with the regular iPhone 14, you get the 12 MP camera which looks quite like the previous iPhone 13 with a moderately enhanced camera having the Photonic Engine and an aperture of F1.5.
In the video mode, users get the Action Mode in both iPhone and iPhone 14 Pro. With this feature, users get stabilized videos with smooth footage. The Cinematic Mode in both variants has been improved, and you can now shoot videos in 4K mode, and users can choose between 24 FPS and 30 FPS.
Additionally, when you edit videos in the Cinematic Mode, you can refocus and blend up videos in 24 FPS and 30 FPS for the same video file you are editing. With iPhone 14 Pro, you can record videos in the Apple ProRes mode, which you don’t find in the non-pro variants.
The Cameras available in iPhone 14
iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus have been designed to have two cameras, one with a wide angle and the other with an ultra-wide angle. iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max have three distinct camera angles: wide-angle, ultra-wide angle, and the 3x telephoto camera.
As we all know, all of the previously launched iPhones had 12 MP camera sensors for a prolonged period. With new devices launched yearly, the sensors grew in size, but the pixels almost remained the same. However, with iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max, we get 48 MP sensors that let you click sharper and brighter pictures.
Advanced Night Mode and Action Mode
Apple has improved its Deep Fusion imaging feature called the Photonic Engine. This enables users to shoot pictures at multiple exposures and click well-lit photographs. With the Action Mode, you can shoot very smooth and enhanced quality videos.
Selfie camera: The show-stealer
The selfie camera provided with the new iPhone series is the show stealer. The reason users are enthusiastic about the selfie camera, in particular, is because the front-facing camera now has autofocus, which was previously missing. With the added feature, users may now clock sharper and better-quality selfies. Additionally, when the autofocus feature is combined with the portrait mode using the Face ID camera’s depth, the selfies you click will be of much better quality. With the Portrait mode, users may now blur the background of the foreground while clicking the pictures.
So these were all the amazing camera specifications of the iPhone 14 series. Although we agree that the devices are packed with amazing features overall, the camera upgrades are worth being hyped about.
