What cameras does the iPhone 13 Pro have?
The iPhone 13 Pro’s camera system has been turbo charged with three of Apple’s most powerful cameras ever. Here’s more about what each camera offers:
- Ultra Wide Camera: Captures 92% more light than the iPhone 12 Pro, has a faster sensor and can autofocus at just 2cm, bringing macro photography to life. You can also shoot mind-blowing macro videos, including in slow-mo or time lapse modes.
- Wide Camera: With a wider aperture and Apple’s largest sensor yet, it captures 2.2x more light, giving you all round sharper, better quality photos. The LiDAR scanner enables night mode portraits.
- Telephoto: 77mm focal length and 3x optical zoom is good for both close ups and distance shots, without compromising on the detail. Night mode helps to capture more drama and contrast, even when the light is low.
