How good is iPhone Pro Max camera?
The iPhone 13 Pro Max camera is Apple’s most advanced pro camera system ever. Here’s what you’ll get with the Pro Max:
Ultra Wide Camera: It captures more light, has a faster sensor and an all-new autofocus to bring macro photography to your fingertips. Macro photography is the art of making small objects look life-size or larger and with the Pro Max camera you can even shoot macro videos, in slow-mo or time lapse.
Wide Camera: The wider aperture captures 2.2x more light so you can create detailed shots at any time of day. The LiDAR scanner uses lasers to judge distance and depth and is put to good use with the camera to create stunningly sharp Night mode portraits.
Telephoto: Get up close and personal with the 3x optical zoom and a 6x optical zoom range across all cameras with more framing and lighting options than ever.
TrueDepth Camera: Harnesses dot projection for better depth data so you can produce cinematic quality photos and 4K video with a new deck of exciting modes, like Portrait mode with advanced Bokeh or the new Cinematic mode which shifts focus between subjects and people so you don’t have to.
The neural engine powers Deep Fusion and Smart HD4 for optimised content, even in low light and if that is not enough to quench your creative thirst, you can experiment with new Photographic Styles for true to life, amazing pics.
