iPhone cameras from Apple are believed to be few of the best that you can get on a smartphone. The latest iterations, iPhone 6 and 6 Plus of Apple have raised the graph a notch higher. This has been possible because of the addition of manual exposure control, photography with high-resolution panorama, Focus Pixels, motion video and also the optical image stabilization. The last feature is available only for iPhone 6 Plus.
Apple has no intentions to stop here even if the latest iPhones have been lauded for their abilities pertaining to camera. After the compact camera receives a run for their money, now Apple has set to take the greatest leap. This will be achieved through the professional cameras.
According to John Gruber from Daring Fireball, an Apple insider has revealed the company’s work on a fresh imaging technology. This will allow the Apple iPhone users to capture DSLR-like photos. He says, “The specific thing I heard is that next year’s camera might be the biggest camera jump ever. I don’t even know what sense this makes, but I’ve heard that it’s some kind of weird two-lens system where the back camera uses two lenses and it somehow takes it up into DSLR quality imagery.”
Imaging technology is best suited for a wide variety of dual lenses’ applications. For instance, Corephotonics, which is an Israeli company, makes use of two 13 megapixel cameras for performing optical zoom. This could reach of up to 5 times without any parts in motion. On the other hand, HTC claims to introduce Duo Camera on the M8 with a superior quality DSLR effects. As per the HTC sources, “Two independent lenses allow it to detect and calculate the relative distance of subjects in the image. The imaging system then assigns properties to each pixel, which allows them to be re-purposed and reprocessed to maximize image quality.”
Apple has been conventionally using Sony supplied CMOS sensors in the rear camera. However, Gruber did not comment on the CMOS brand when he was talking about what could be used by Apple in the next-generation iPhone that is due in 2015.
“The specific thing I heard is that next year’s camera might be the biggest camera jump ever,” iDownloadBlog quoted Gruber as saying. “I don’t even know what sense this makes, but I’ve heard that it’s some kind of weird two-lens system where the back camera uses two lenses and it somehow takes it up into DSLR quality imagery.”
The latest brainwork about the camera of iPhone 7 follows the fresh, smart phone announcement with a camera sensor by Sony. As per the Japanese company its latest camera will be featuring an Exmor RS IMX230 sensor of 21-megapixel, which will be able to shoot any video in 4K resolutions. This is possible with the use of HDR image technology at the same time fitting inside a minimal form factor.
Although it is still quite an early stage; Apple could be using a relevant camera system in the due iPhone iteration for improving the image stabilization and also the auto-focus capabilities.
