iPhone 11 Pro Camera: Everything You Need To Know Before Buying


hey what’s going on friends it’s
Jonathan welcome back to another JC production in this video we’re gonna be
talking about the iPhone 11 iPhone 11 Pro and the iPhone 11 Pro Macs and
specific we’re going to be talking about the cameras on these new devices what’s
new and I’m gonna break down everything and explain it to you that way you know
what these features do so without further ado let’s go ahead and dive
straight into this beginning with the four new cameras so out of these four
new cameras the iPhone 11 only has three whereas the iPhone 11 Pro and the pro
Macs have all four starting with the back the new cameras consist of a new 12
megapixel wide camera with an aperture of f-18 so this is the standard camera
that we’ve all come to love on the iPhone the difference here is that the
focus pixels now cover 100% of the sensor and Apple says this is going to
bring better auto focusing in low-light in fact they said three times faster
auto focusing we’ll have to see if this is true once we get a unit in house and
trust me I will be doing my own testing the next camera is completely new to the
iPhone it’s never been put on an iPhone before and that’s a 12 megapixel ultra
wide camera with an aperture of f28 4 and finally the telephoto camera has
been updated from last year it’s 12 megapixels and has an aperture of f28 oh
versus the F 2.4 found on the 10s Macs so out of these three cameras the iPhone
11 will be getting the ultra wide as well as the standard wide and no
telephoto but it will still be able to do portrait mode which is great the
camera on the front has also been improved and it’s a new 12 megapixel
sensor with an aperture at 2.4 the front camera has cinematic video stabilization
it supports 4k up to 60 frames per second and 1080p up to 120 frames per
second so you can get some nice slow motion with the front-facing camera that
Apple is calling slow fees it offers extended dynamic range or HDR with video
up to 30 frames per second including 4k speaking of extended dynamic range the
three cameras on the back also support extended dynamic range with video up to
60 frames per second including 4k so you can capture 4k video at 60 frames per
second in HDR which is crazy so with the iPhone 11 Pro and the 11 Pro max if you
start in the ultra wide and then transition to the wide and then tell
photo you do get four times optical zoom and Apple says that you should be able
to zoom in smoothly from the ultra wide all the way to the telephoto during
video the next thing is color calibration this is something that Apple
pushed really really hard color calibration is extremely important when
it comes to video because it’s how you’re able to switch lenses and not
have that lens affect the color of your video pending that all of your settings
are the same such as your exposure and your white balance let me give you a
quick example so this is a Fuji XT 3 and this is the kit lens that comes with the
XT 3 if you get it in a bundle so in other words this is a Fuji lens if I
were to take this lens off and put something like this on there which is a
sigma 24 millimeter lens for canon of course I would have to adapt it on the
body however due to the coating on the lens itself the color is going to be
different now how significant that color difference is just depends on the lens
manufacturer and how heavy that coating is so let me set the Fuji xt3 aside and
then take the sigma 24 and set it to the side let me bring out this lens here
this is a Zeiss OTUs 28 millimeter this is a very very expensive lens this is a
Zeiss OTUs 55 millimeter and this is a Zeiss OTUs
85 millimeter you can see I have the entire set here the total price for
these three lenses is around twelve thousand dollars the reason why they’re
so expensive outside of the hardware and then the optics themselves is the fact
that these have a special coating on them and they are all calibrated to
match each other so if I take this 85 millimeter and put it on the Fuji xt3
and record some video and then swap it out with the 55 millimeter the color
itself is going to look identical of course it also comes down to the sensor
so let me put these Otis’s aside and bring back in the Fuji XT 3 so the XT 3
has its own sensor this is a Fuji sensor the camera that is recording the Fuji XT
3 right now up here is the a 6400 these cameras obviously don’t have the same
sensor one is made by Sony one is made by Fuji so the color that the sensor is
going to produce is going to be because of the colorscience of each of
these sensors so what Apple has done is they have color calibrated the sensor
and the optics to match this is actually a major achievement on Apple’s part
because if you switch cameras and you’re using a manual video apps such as filmic
Pro when you have your settings dialed in your white balance and exposure
settings if you switch from the Y to the telephoto the color is going to be
identical this is gonna be great for producing video there’s no clarity on
whether or not this is specific to the 11pro in the 11pro max or if the iPhone
11 cameras are also calibrated I do have an assumption as well as prediction when
it comes to the four cameras on the 11pro and the 11 Pro max even the iPhone
11 a lot of people aren’t talking about this but every single camera is 12
megapixels I’m assuming they’re using the same sensor on each of these cameras
the only is changing is the glass optics this is how they’re able to achieve
different focal lengths and apertures to me this makes complete sense not only is
it cost-effective but if you’re using the same sensor on all four cameras
that’s going to guarantee you the same color in terms of the sensor and as long
as you put the same coating over all of the glass that covers the sensor
well that guarantees you a calibrated look all four cameras on the 11pro and
the 11pro max can shoot 4k 60 frames per second this is already incredible
however when filmic Pro took the stage they basically just took it to the next
level filmic Pro showed off a feature that is going to be released inside of
their app later this year if you don’t know filmic Pro is a professional video
app that you can download on your iPhone and you have manual control over your
white balance over your shutter speed over your ISO your frame rates all that
it’s a very powerful app the feature they showed off is the ability to do
multicam so multicam is exactly what I’ve been doing on my videos as of late
it’s the ability to switch between multiple cameras to achieve different
angles the way it works with this new feature
in filmic Pro is it’s using all four cameras on the 11pro and the 11 Pro max
giving you a 4k stream while utilizing these cameras and you can also record
multiple streams of 4k from each camera it’s not really clear on what they mean
by multiple it could mean two possibly three or could mean all
we really don’t know at this point but from the information that I gathered
it’s only two so you can record video on the front-facing camera as well as like
the wide-angle or telephoto on the back at the same time in 4k many people may
not find this impressive but let me put this in perspective up until recent Sony
cameras used to overheat when recording 4k video this is only one stream of 4k
the iPhone 11 pro and the 11 Pro max can record multiple streams of 4k at the
same time I have no idea what the length or limit is going to be on this but it’s
gotta make that processor hot but in any case that’s really really impressive
however I think there’s some misinformation going around on the
Internet this is a feature that is built into a third-party app not directly in
the Apple camera that is shipping with your phone and it’s not gonna be
available until later this year chances are as the Snapdragon processor that is
found in Android phones gets more powerful this feature will be ported
over to the Android version of filmic Pro before we dive into the software
side of things I do want to touch on deep fusion deep fusion is actually
really really cool and exciting and if you want to compare it to anything
compare it to Google’s processing with the pixel phones now I imagine that on
an iPhone and I personally think that’s really cool what deep fusion what’s
happening is your phone is already capturing photos before you even hit the
shutter button and it’s capturing nine different shots once you hit the shutter
button it’s going to process all nine photos in different exposures including
a long exposure so using advanced algorithms in the neurosystem found
inside the a13 it’s going to pick the best portions of all nine photos and
then stitch those portions together giving you a pristine shot I gotta say
the example that Apple showed was really really impressive and I can’t wait to
see how this stacks up against the Google pixel 4 so moving on to the
software side of things Apple announced a night mode now this night mode isn’t
going to be something that you can switch to manually instead look at it
like this scene optimizer that’s found on Samsung Galaxy devices
so whenever the sensor detects that you’re in a lower lift situation night
mode will kick on and it’s going to adjust the exposure the sharpness as
well as the noise reduction to give you a pristine image once again the sample
that Apple showed off was really impressive
but it wasn’t really an ideal situation it was a controlled environment not
really a real-world scenario so I’m gonna get this phone in-house and really
push this camera and come up with my own night mode samples that way you guys can
see what it’s like in a real world situation if you guys don’t want to miss
that video make sure to subscribe another feature no one is talking about
is the updated true tone flash it should be brighter
hopefully it produces a softer look I’m not really much of a flash user if you
are Sun off down below in the comment section I do want to know like how many
of you guys actually use the flash I for one am NOT a fan of the flash but if
it’s going to give me a brighter image in a softer look and look more natural
than artificial I’ll definitely use it speaking of features no one is talking
about the iPhone 1111 Pro and the 11 Pro max have audio zooming this is going to
be identical to the way the notes in the note 10 Plus work with the directional
audio so as you zoom in that audio will become more narrower and pick up your
subject and isolate your subject from any background noise I can’t wait to try
it out if the past is anything to go by Apple really has never had the best
microphones in my personal opinion and that’s really where Samsung has excelled
when it comes to their video so I really can’t wait to put these two phones
against each other quick tech video is another new feature that I personally
think looks awesome so while you’re inside the photo side of the camera app
you can start recording video by holding down the shutter and if you want to let
go of the shutter you can swipe it up to the little lock icon and it’s going to
lock the record button so now you’re recording video and with this you also
get subject tracking so think about like with the note 10 in no Tim Plus how I
showed off in my Pro Mode video where you can do subject tracking you touched
your subject and the focus is going to follow your subject this is also going
to work the same way on the new iPhones this is really really cool and I can’t
wait to try this out well my friends that does it for this video that was a
feature break down and what’s new when it comes to the cameras on the iPhone
1111 Pro and the 11pro Macs trust me I’m gonna have a much more thorough
walkthrough when it comes to these cameras once I get my hands on these
devices if you don’t want to miss that make sure to click the bill icon so you
can be alerted when that video goes live if you guys want to see any content in
specific once I get the new iPhones sound off down below in the comment
section and I will make sure I put it at the top of my priority list when it
comes to making that content I hope you guys enjoyed this video if you did
consider giving it a thumbs up subscribe for more content just like this and I
will talk to you wonderful people in the next video
