Apple Iphone 7 and 7plus | New Camera
One of the most interesting feature for photographers is the introduction of two cameras on the new Iphone 7 plus launched last evening.
Other than the standard camera with the 28 mm F 1.8 wide angle lens, Apple has also introduced a second camera with a short telephoto lens 56 mm which would be useful for portraits, throwing the background out of focus etc.
Despite the fact that phone cameras would usually lag behind their larger counterparts there is a lot to recommend in Apple's new offerings.
The sensor is now 12 MP with an intelligent image processor - there is also RAW capability using Adobe's DNG format which can be processed in Lightroom. The camera is also capable of 4K video recording.
Other plus points are extended battery life which has always been an issue with Iphones as compared to the competition.
It would be interesting to see how many users upgrade to the 7plus - I am sure many photographers will be interested.
