The iPhone 13 could have ProRes and Portrait modes for videos
The iPhone 13 could at least be there August report by Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, Apple’s newest iPhone could offer the video version of Portrait Mode, a higher quality video recording option called ProRes, and a new filtering system to improve the look and color of pictures.. After a
Portrait mode was originally released with the iPhone 7 Plus in 2016 for photography only. But if Gurman’s information is correct, you may soon be able to record videos with a bokeh effect behind your main subject.
For the rumored ProRes for video, Gurman speculates that its availability might be similar to thatis exclusive to the higher quality iPhone 12 models. If so, ProRes might only be available for the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max.
Improved wide angle
The biggest rumor right now is an upgrade to the ultra wide angle lens. At the moment the bezel of the ultrawide on the iPhone 12 is f2.4, but a Report seen by MacRumors suggests that the aperture on the next model will be f1.8. The smaller the f-number, the more light the lens lets through, which leads to better-looking pictures, especially in poor lighting conditions. The report also suggests that this upgrade will apply to all iPhone 13 models, not just the more expensive Pro line.
Night mode is already great on the iPhone 12 with its regular lens, but like we did in. have figured out, the iPhone 12 Pro Max does not take good ultra-wide-angle night shots. Hopefully that boost would make this wide angle lens keep up with the others.
12 Pro Max specs on cheaper phones
The above report also indicated that some of the specs of the current top-end iPhone 12 Pro Max are moving to the regular iPhone 13 and Pro. In particular the longer 2.5x telephoto zoom.
It’s also possible that the lidar feature for improved depth detection – currently only available for the 12 Pro models – will be available for the entire iPhone 13 range.
A bigger bump of cameras
Schematics seen from MacRumors suggest that the camera “bump” that surrounds the lenses on the current iPhone 12 range will be thicker. This would allow the lenses to sit flush with the surface instead of sticking out like they currently do. While this may only be for aesthetic reasons, it can partially account for the larger aperture and sensor shift stabilization that can be added to the ultra-wide angle lens.
The schemes also suggest that magnification is common on both the 13 Pro and 13 Pro Max, which may suggest that the two phones have an identical camera setup that provides top photography performance regardless of which size you choose. This would be a welcome change for photographers – myself included – who want the best possible image quality but prefer to have a smaller phone in their pocket.
A More recent leak showed renders of all four iPhone 13 models with slight differences to the camera setup. The photo shared on Twitter by leaker Sonny Dickson suggests that the two lenses on the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Mini could be placed diagonally rather than one above the other.
No big surprises
There aren’t any believable rumors of any drastic changes to the camera right now, so it’s reasonable to assume the entire triple lens setup will remain largely the same. This is really no surprise; Apple has only just refined the telephoto lens of the 12 Pro Max, so it is unlikely that it will be replaced immediately by, for example, a 10x zoom (despitekick the iPhone in the ass while zooming in). However, an early rumor suggested that we may see a longer “periscope zoom” on the iPhone, but that won’t appear until 2022, if at all.
But we’ll keep an eye on the rumor mill and update this article with the most credible reports as they appear.
