This afternoon, Apple announced the next generation iPhone’s – the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. They come equipped with many new features. They are water resistant, have stereo speakers, come in a new “Piano Black” color, have improved performance, and a lot more. But for the purpose of this article, we want to talk about the improved camera on the iPhone 7 Plus – because it is an absolute game changer.

The new iPhones have optical image stabilization, allowing for a 3x longer exposure. The iPhone 7 camera has a six-element, 1.8 aperture lens, a 12 megapixel sensor that is 60% faster, with a quad-LED flash with 50 percent light output. Worth noting, the iPhone 7 will also have a 7-megapixel front camera, an improvement fro the 5-megapixel front camera on the iPhone 6s. However, the iPhone 7 does not have the dual lens system that has been rumored all summer.

Enter the iPhone 7 Plus, which comes equipped withย two 12-megapixel cameras on the back. This dual-lens setup allows for both wide angle and telephoto. One lens handles 1x zoom, while the other handles 2x.


The iPhone 7 Plus features a dual-lens setup, not included in the iPhone 7.

The dual-lens setup is a true game changer because it allows for shallow depth of field ability through something Apple is calling the “portrait” feature. The images above, provided by Apple, were taken with the iPhone 7 plus camera. The iPhone camera is slowly creeping up towards DSLR-quality, and this innovation is the biggest step Apple has yet taken towardsย achieving the quality of entry-level DSLR’s.


You can now achieve DSLR-quality shots with the dual-lens camera & depth of field ability in the new iPhone 7 Plus.

We can’t wait to take advantage of the new camera in MuseCam. We will also be using Apple’s new RAW API, offering photographers to import their RAW files directly into MuseCam for editing.

Another great example of the depth of field achieved with the iPhone 7 plus camera.

  • The other day, while I was aat work, my cousin stole my iphone annd teste to see if it can survive a forty foot drop, juist so she
    can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad iis now broken and she has 83
    views. I know this is entirely off topic but I had to share it with someone!

  • There’s definately a great deal too find out about this topic.
    I like alll the points you’ve made.

    Perfect smartphone! Just purchased the iphone 7 recently from wantITbuyIT. The battery life is good unless you are doing something that involves a lot of processing power. Camera quality is one of the best ever.

    Love using MuseCamโ€”out of all the manual camera apps out there, I feel like it’s the only one that’s done a good job of placing all the controls in a way that’s fast and easy to adjust. And the taptic clicks are a nice touch.

    Are you planning to add a button to switch to the 2x lens on the 7 Plus? I find that’s the fastest way to zoom in without worrying that I accidentally overzoomed and turned on the interpolation. Plus, pinching out to zoom requires an extra hand (and costs time), when that may not be feasible.

    Also, is it fair to assume that the Portrait Mode processing is proprietary, and can’t be added to third party apps?
