The iPhone 14 Pro It’s been out for over a month now. While early reviewers were impressed with this iPhone’s new camera system – and even traveling photographers praised this smartphone – creator Halide Sebastiaan de With just shared his long-term review of the cameras in the iPhone 14 Pro. In this comprehensive and extensive analysis, BGR Highlights Camera review done by expert photographer.
for halide Innovative, the iPhone 14 Pro’s front camera provides “clearer shots with dramatically superior dynamic range and detail.” With auto focus, this camera also offers higher accuracy, even in mixed light or backlit subjects.
While the sensor is larger and there is now variable focus (…) you shouldn’t expect beautiful bokeh; Autofocus simply allows for more sharpness across the frame, with slight background blur when your subject (undoubtedly a face) is close enough. Most of the time it is very subtle and cute. It’s worth noting that the front camera is able to focus quite close-up – which can result in some pleasantly shallow depth of field between the telephoto subject and the background.
Ultra-Wide also got better on iPhone 14 Pro
While Apple has significantly upgraded with the iPhone 13 Pro Ultra-Wide lens, the company is also introducing a much larger sensor, a new lens design, and a higher ISO sensitivity. Although the aperture has taken a step back, the larger sensor covers the step.
De With describes the shots on the iPhone 14 Pro as “much more detailed and showed less clear processing” than its predecessor.
I think Apple’s new photon engine and larger sensor both contribute a lot of detail to the frame, which makes taking a picture possible. The ‘my view’ perspective provided by the broadband puts you right in the center of the action, and the lack of detail makes every shot less immersive.
Is everything perfect? Well, by comparison, with the main camera improved, it’s still fairly soft and lacks detail. Its 12MP resolution is suddenly almost restricted. The corners are still distorted and too soft at times, despite the system’s excellent automatic handling to keep it from looking like fish-eye.
It also discusses low-light photos and improvements to macro photography.
The 48MP main camera changes the game
While regular users can’t shoot at 48MP, professionals can take advantage of Apple’s ProRAW to take advantage of the larger 48MP sensor in the main camera. Here’s how the creator of Halide describes shots with this new iPhone 14 Pro camera:
I didn’t find a huge increase in noise or image quality when shooting at 12MP. I hardly bothered to withdraw to 12MP, and instead dealt with a delay of several seconds when taking 48MP ProRAW photos. But first of all, I found a file spirit In photos from the new 48MP RAW mode that just made me happy. That’s huge – and that’s just not the file size I’m talking about. This camera can take beautiful pictures, period, full stop. Pictures that are not suitable for an iPhone. pictures that are amazing.
And yes: the 48MP capture is slow. We’re talking up to 4 seconds of slow capture time. Although slow, the 48MP image display and quality are worth the speed trade-off for me. For now, it’s also worth noting that the iPhone 14 Pro will only capture 10-bit ProRAW files – even third-party apps can’t unlock the previous 12-bit ProRAW capture mode, and the ‘normal’ native RAW isn’t available at this resolution.
Telephoto lens continuous work with iPhone 14 Pro
In terms of hardware, the telephoto lens on the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro are the same. The new Optical Engine processing feature greatly improves the experience of this iPhone.
While these two cameras ostensibly pack the exact same sensor and lens, the processing and image quality on the iPhone 14 Pro are simply leagues ahead. Details and color are much better. On paper, Apple has the exact same camera in these two phones – which means a lot of the praise here has to go to the new optical engine processing that seems to do a much better job of processing images than the telephoto camera and retaining detail. .
There is also the bad in this new camera system
Sebastian de Wei spends most of the time praising the new camera system on the iPhone 14 Pro, but that doesn’t mean it’s perfect.
“For those hoping that the iPhone 14 Pro will do away with heavily processed shots, we have some rather bad news: the iPhone 14 Pro appears, if anything, to be more practical when it comes to making creative decisions about selective adjustments. Based on the topic, noise reduction and more,” he writes.
In addition, Pro users are still unable to take full advantage of the camera system, as Apple blocks access to some features, as the reviewer explained:
(…) Our app couldn’t focus close to Apple’s camera app. The telephoto lens will refuse to focus on anything close. We’ve never fixed this – although it’s worse on newer iPhones. We have good reason for that.
The reason for this is a bit of cheating that Apple pulls off. The telephoto lens actually I can’t focus on this close. You’ll never know, because the built-in app quickly switches the view of the regular main camera instead, and it’s cropped at the same magnification as the telephoto lens.
(…) This starts out being a little less charming and more frustrating as a more demanding user. Apple seems to have a certain level of awareness about this: automatically switching the camera to the high-powered lens has caused some frustration and confusion when they announced it, forcing them to add a setting that switches this automatic switching behavior to the Camera app.
