Camera

Better Photos, Clearer Video. This is what you get...

The new 12-megapixel dual camera adds that much more detail and clarity to your photos with two lenses: A wide-angle lens to capture better landscapes, cities and streets and a new telephoto lens for stunning portraits and better zoom for distant subjects such as wildlife or sports. All of this adds up to memories that are brighter in colour and a more realistic representation of colour in life.

7MP Selfie Camera

The iPhone 8 has a 7-megapixels front-facing camera also known as a selfie camera. The camera also has a flash - something older iPhone models did not have.

Portrait Mode

Portrait mode  gives your photos more depth and subjects more focus, giving you much more professional looking photos. You also get various lighting effects such as natural lighting, studio lighting, contour lighting and stage lighting.

Time Lapse

The time lapse feature lets you record a period of time in a sped-up fashion. For example. Record a whole day into a few seconds by perching your iPhone on a tripod on your rooftop. You can choose how many frames per second you want, allowing you to control the speed of the time lapse.

Slow Motion

Capture those often fast, unseen moments with the slow motion feature. You can shoot up to 240 frames per second, so now you can slow-mo that video of you popping a water balloon, doing a move on your skateboard or surprising a friend for her birthday.

Optical Zoom

The camera also gives you 2x optical zoom which works the same way as a zoom lens on a traditional or DSLR camera. Optical zoom is much better than digital zoom at taking photos from far away as it does not degrade image quality. The model also includes a 10x digital zoom.

Video

Record video up to 4K. The main benefit of 4K video is you get much smoother,  sharper and clearer video that’s just beautiful to look at. The iPhone 8 also gives you extra features like time lapse which condenses an entire day into a few seconds, slow motion to catch every detail of that action shot and optical image stabilisation that removes that “shaky hands” look.

Augmented Reality and your Camera

One of the biggest features is Augmented Reality (AR). At its essence, AR is digital information overlaid with the real world using your camera. The best way to understand how it works is through the new Measure app: You hold your phone up to an object or area and use a virtual tape measure to give you the length and height of it. Both cameras on the iPhone 8, are individually calibrated with new gyroscopes and accelerometers to accurately track motion. For example, you can have a video chat with an animated face over your real face and as you blink your eyes, your animated face also blinks. It’s the same with mouth and tongue movements.  At a restaurant and need help choosing a bottle of wine from the menu? Via the Vivino app, Hold your camera up to the wine list and it will give you ratings on each wine! AR games like the global phenomenon Pokemon Go create new and exciting worlds via your camera.

Flash

Your night shots are about to get LIT. The 8 Plus has Quad-LED True Tone with a Slow Sync flash, giving your photos well-lit backgrounds and foregrounds. The  front-facing camera also has a flash for great selfies!

Tap-to-Focus

Just tap the part of the photo you want in focus and the camera will automatically bring focus to that part on the screen, allowing you to quickly capture moments more accurately.
