iPhone 8 Plus camera gets closer to DSLR quality

Phones
Here stand off to like one side a little bit. There you go. Do it again, do that again. All right cool that awesome. Hi I'm James Martin senior photographer for c network here with the iPhone 8 plus We're taking out out to try some of the features of the new camera. Like last year's iPhone 7 plus, the iPhone 8 plus has dual rear cameras, a 1.8 aperture standard lens as well as a 2.8 apperture telephoto lens. Both the cameras have a new sensor that gives both lenses 12 MegaPixel image quality. I was up at the sunrise at the Golden Gate Bridge this morning and the color noise in the dark hearts of the photo are noticeably less. It's not noisy at all. The colors are really pretty. This true tone colors are, even in this kind of like drab overcast light, the colors are really beautiful. And it's probably the biggest thing that I noted so far. Portrait lighting is a new feature on the iPhone 8 Plus, which uses the two cameras to create a depth map of a person's face, allowing you to change the lighting. Okay so here is portrait mode, natural light. [SOUND] Very nice. Then, studio light It's like she's lit with another light. It's pretty amazing. The contour light gives her face a little bit more drama a little more contrast. And then the stage lighting is going to give us the dramatic cut-out effect. The edges are a little unrefined. You can still see the background. And then in [INAUDIBLE] the cutting out is still is imperfect as I used [INAUDIBLE] stage lighting I noticed that it worked better when the background was clear and clean, I took a couple of portraits over the weekend that are really very dramatic and very cool. Second really is editing can all be done after you take the photo as well. I think the lighting modes are interesting but clearly new. Color of the flash continued to be a little problematic for me. You can see how she looks a little greenish and a little muddier. The bokeh effect on the iPhone 8 Plus is much better than it was The 7. That is so cute. Except you were blinking. One more. In the 7 Plus it looked a little bit like a blurred background. And in the iPhone 8 Plus it looks more like DSLR bokeh. That is a good portrait. I've noticed when I'm zooming, the quality of the image degrades far less on It seems to me like big step forward from the 7 plus. It's getting close to my DSLR. I'm really happy with a lot of these colors and the textures of the city and nature and the ocean. And there are really some fantastic photos. [MUSIC]
