Camera Profile: iPhone 7 Plus


The iPhone 7 Plus is an amazing phone. Its speed and processing power is the fastest on the market.  Although it doesn’t stop at speed it also has an amazing Cameras. Yes that’s right cameras. The iPhone 7 Plus has 3 cameras in all including the FaceTime HD in the front and the 2 rear cameras. The FaceTime HD camera is a 7MP 1080p HD which helps to take the best selfies for snapchat. For low light situations the whole retina display lights up to replace a conventional LED  flash. There is a telephoto lens and a standard lens in the rear of the phone. What’s the difference? The telephoto lens can optically zoom in 2x and digitally zoom in up to 10x while the standard lens is in a regular wide angle lens. You can even switch between lenses while recording video. The duel camera helps to put together portrait mode pictures. With Portrait mode the standard lens picks out the main subject or subjects. Meanwhile the telephoto lens is finding the background and blurs it. By putting one and two together you get a portrait mode picture. Every year the iPhone camera improves until it is as powerful as it is now. The cameras also supports High Dynamic Range (HDR), and live photos. This is an incredible camera and probably the best on the market at this time.
