Better process power, artificial intelligence and new components

Apple on Tuesday presented its new mobile line and managed to convince in the photographic section, one of the most valued by most customers looking for a high-end mobile. The iPhone 11, the cheapest model, has two rear cameras, so it wins a respect to the iPhone XR. The new ones iPhone 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max They have three, one more than the top of the XS and XS Max range. In the new devices the sensors and the lenses improve, but the change is much more profound, what the new mobiles of the brand improve is photography.

The elements that are part of that change must be understood as a whole. Actually what Apple has built is an integrated photography system formed by three objectives (super wide angle, angular and zoom) that work with specific software supported by a complex technology assisted by artificial intelligence

Apple's vice president of product marketing, Phil Schillerannounced on Tuesday a technology called Deep fusion (deep fusion) that offered results that looked like professional cameras. This system is that before the user takes a snapshot, the camera already takes 8 images. When shooting, a long exposure is taken, and then an image is formed pixel to pixel It offers a lot of detail and very little noise. Little more could be seen than that excellent image, but what was seen promises. From September 20, will be on the street.

Another improvement is the adoption of a night mode, like the one Google and other brands already had. In this case artificial intelligence is used to provide the photos with a light, which at the time of taking it, did not exist. The result that Apple showed also made it clear that it has taken a leap in this aspect of photography.

Special mention deserves the integration of its cameras. The application of Filmic, a well-known video editor, showed on the Steve Jobs Theater stage of Apple Park a version for the new iPhone 11 Pro that is capable of filming at the same time with all its cameras, including the front, which you can place in a box on the screen. Amazing. That wonder of software technology would not have been possible without a system that supported a large capacity for data transmission in separate groups. And there also have nothing to do with the objectives. It is software, but above all, the new and powerful processor A13 Bionic.

When a photo is to be taken, in the part that comes out of the frame, the iPhone shows the part of the photo that is outside and that does capture the upper angle. More: when one of the lenses is about to take a picture, transmit the adjustment data to the rest that he uses, so that they apply the same in case of change from one to another. Apple has thought about how to improve photography, not cameras, in the new iPhone. The result, in the absence of being able to test them on the street, puts the apple company on the first photographic line again.
