This week, Apple announced the new devices within the iPhone 12 line filled with news to capture photos and videos. Each model features a distinct set of sensors and technical capabilities that distinguishes them and also justifies the worth difference.
iPhone 12 Mini and iPhone 12: two cameras
The iPhone 12 Mini and iPhone 12 models each have two camera sensors. the most sensor still has an equivalent 12 MP of previous models, but it’s important improvements.
The sensor now features a seven-element lens and an f / 1.6 aperture; this suggests up to 27% greater light perception capacity, which improves photos in low light. The second sensor also has 12 MP, but is ultrawide, with a 120 ° angle, f / 2.4 aperture, and a five-element lens.
Both sensors have the “Deep Fusion” computer photography system, as well as the Night Mode feature. Other features include Smart HDR 3 (for cute) and HDR combined with Dolby Vision (for video at 30 FPS).
iPhone 12 Pro: three cameras + LiDAR
The iPhone 12 Pro has the sensors already mentioned and adds a telephoto sensor, adding three cameras in all. This third camera has an f / 2.0 aperture, 52mm telephoto capability, and Deep Fusion feature.
The biggest difference, however, is due to the LiDAR sensor, which promotes a significant improvement in the performance of photos captured in low light (autofocus six times faster), in addition to portrait photos in dark environments.
There are also new features, such as 2x optical and 10x digital zoom, and HDR and Dolby Vision videos captured at 60 FPS.
iPhone 12 Pro Max
The iPhone 12 Pro Max features the same sensors as previous models, but with more advanced specifications:
- 12 MP main sensor (47% larger than the previous generation), f / 1.6 aperture, and even better optical stabilization for even clearer photos and videos
- 2.5x optical zoom
- 12x digital zoom
- All software features offered on iPhone 12 Pro
