iPhone 11 Pro (Pro Max). camera overview
Recently Apple showed three major smartphones of 2020: iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max. The presentation of the Cupertinians has already been dubbed as the most unsuccessful and uninteresting. It is difficult to disagree, since nothing new was shown to us. Yes, something has become more powerful there, the screens are brighter, cameras have been added, the autonomy has improved. all this was to be expected. over, from external changes. a new and rather dumb view of the site on which the main cameras are located (jokes about this are collected here). However, it is always easier to find fault, so in today’s article there will be not just a stream of consciousness, pouring slops on Apple, but a very objective review. The cameras are worth reviewing, as this is one of the biggest innovations in the iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max. There are three cameras. what can they do? Let’s figure it out now.
iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max. camera overview
Surprisingly, Apple pioneered the high standard for multi-camera back in 2016 with the iPhone 7 Plus. However, Chinese vendors, as well as such giants as Samsung, LG and others, immediately seized the initiative, which led to the appearance of devices with triple and even quad cameras. Wide-angle photomodules, optical zoom up to 5x without loss of quality, hybrid zoom up to 10x with minimal loss, ToF sensors. this is all common, but not for Apple. The explanation is simple. What the brand says about the cameras in the new iPhone 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max:
“This is a breakthrough. Revolutionary triple camera system. much more features and consistent ease of use.”
“Meet the world’s first triple-camera system to deliver the latest technology with traditional iPhone simple elegance. the same tools you use to edit your photos. Now you can shoot like a pro. “
Just one question for the company. what is revolutionary then? Yes, Android smartphones are not of the first grade can boast the same set of photo modules. This is not to mention the Samsung Galaxy Note 10, Huawei P30 Pro, Xiaomi Mi 9, OnePlus 7 Pro and others, which offer cameras for every taste and color. And they take pictures as well, the P30 Pro is especially impressive in low light conditions. As they say, you can’t praise yourself. nobody will do it.
What the iPhone 11 Pro and Pro Max cameras can do
If you are not yet aware, then the set of photo modules and software capabilities in the iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max are completely identical. Therefore, it makes no sense to single out any model, because even Apple positions these two models as one and the same product, differing in dimensions and dimensions of the display. Now let’s get down to the fun part. what exactly are the cameras of the iPhone 11 Pro.
- New camera interface. here the developers have tried and made the Camera application more convenient and intuitive. So. thanks to the widescreen display, you can see both the main (wide-angle) and ultra-wide-angle cameras on the smartphone screen at the same time. This allows you to determine in real time which camera the picture will be more effective and interesting;
- Professional 4K video. smooth, realistic and superbly detailed. Powerful processor capabilities deliver 4K 60fps video with HDR and Cinematic Stabilization. And new editing tools and the ability to quadruple the image area will help to realize any ideas;
- Audio zoom. Now, when zooming, audio and video are synchronized, that is, not only the camera focuses on the approaching object, but also the sound is captured first of all from it. But this is definitely not a revolution, since the same Samsung has already had a similar one for a long time;
- Installation directly on your smartphone. In iOS 13, editing videos can be as easy as editing photos without the need for a PC. Cropping, stitching, filters, and more are now available in the default Camera app on iPhone 11 Pro;
- Night mode. Night mode works with the A13 Bionic processor and intelligent software functions to make low-light scenes look crisp and clear. The mode turns on automatically, and with the help of manual settings, you can achieve even greater detail and reduce noise;
- Portrait mode. thanks to the coordinated work of three cameras, the portraits have even more depth and content. IOS 13 introduces the “Light Key. B / W” effect. Now you can shoot professional grade black and white portraits. At the same time, portrait lighting allows you to adjust the position and intensity of the light source for the subject in your frame, as if you were shooting in a studio;
- Next generation Smart HDR. here sophisticated algorithms make the image detailed in light and dark areas. Thanks to machine learning, Smart HDR now recognizes faces in your shot and automatically changes lighting. This means that the iPhone 11 Pro can independently adjust the image details for both the background and the subject;
- QuickTake. instant transition from taking a photo to recording a video. Now, to switch to Video mode, you do not need to make additional movements, you just need to hold down the shutter button and video recording starts automatically;
- Selfie video (slowie). now, in addition to regular selfies on the iPhone 11 Pro, slow-motion slows are available, short slow-motion selfies with a frequency of 120 fps (in 4K resolution “60 fps).
iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max. camera characteristics
Ultra wide-angle camera:
- Focal length 13 mm;
- Aperture f / 2.4;
- Five-element lens;
- Viewing angle 120;
- 4 times more in the frame;
- Matrix 12 Mp.
Apple claims that their smartphones now have 4x optical zoom, although in fact this is not entirely true. Yes, relative to a wide-angle lens, the telemodule sees objects 4 times closer, but relative to the standard module, the approximation without loss of quality remains the same. 2x. In this regard, if not tricky, but to the real 5x zoom of Huawei, Aple is very far.
- Focal length 26 mm;
- Aperture f / 1.8;
- Six-element lens;
- Optical image stabilization;
- Support for Focus Pixels on the entire matrix;
- New 12 MP matrix.
For some reason, Apple is again replacing concepts and the standard camera with a 70-degree field of view and a focal length of 26 mm is now called a wide-angle camera. No, this is the standard that has been all along, no need to confuse people!
- Focal length 52 mm;
- Aperture f / 2.0;
- Six-element lens;
- Optical image stabilization;
- 2x optical zoom;
- Matrix 12 Mp.
The telephoto camera has remained almost unchanged, except for one factor. the telephoto lens now has a really fast f / 2.0 aperture lens. For example, the first iPhone 7 Plus with a TV camera had f / 2.6, and subsequent models offered f / 2.4. Here the words of the company that the TV camera receives 40% more light are absolutely true.
The following improvements in cameras are also worth noting:
- 35% brighter True Tone flash;
- Zero shutter lag has appeared (however, ZSL is not new for Google Camera for a long time);
- There are 6 new lighting effects in Portrait mode;
- Improved optical image stabilization.
Cameras in the iPphone 11 Pro. output
Undoubtedly, the new iPhone 11 Pro will shoot even better than its predecessor, but how big is the difference. If we take the ultra wide-angle mode, then yes. the iPhone XS simply does not have such a photomodule. Everything else is the same. purely software improvements, which will also be available in devices of previous years, which can be updated to iOS 13. The question is different. but will not the functionality of Apple cameras in older smartphones be reduced? This is still a mystery.
But it’s worth repeating again. from the new only an ultra-wide-angle lens, and everything else is just “breakthrough” innovations, moreover, software, which were announced only in order to somehow justify the cost of new products.
PHONE 11 PRO MAX EIGHT-CORE COPY OVERVIEW:
In our world, very few things remain truly stable, but the reaction to the release of a new copy of the Korean-made Phone 11 Pro MAX on a powerful eight-core processor with DUAL SIM Cards is always a loud event. And not in vain: after all, buying a copy of Phone 11 about max for 2 SIM cards in Belarus is not only a very profitable purchase (of course, because the original costs almost 10 times more.), But also an extremely reliable purchase. 3 years warranty in Belarus in the official service center. Meet the novelty 2019-2020 in Belarus on our website www.SHOPgsm.by:
Now the original and the replica Phone 11 PRO max for 2 SIM cards have one more very characteristic element. a square block with three large cameras on the back panel. In the hands of the back glass on the lid of the replica Apple Phone 11 pro max feels very reliable and sturdy.
The grip is decent, it will not fall out of the hands more often than before. Also on the back glass in the copy of Phone 11 max in Belarus, as well as in the original, the logo is engraved directly on the glass.
The IP67 water protection standard has been preserved, and now the copy of the Phone 11 MAX can withstand rain and splashes. Great, but better not check: the “drowned man” is not considered a warranty case in any workshop in the world. Face ID in the copy of Phone 11 pro max has become definitely faster and recognizes a face from a wide angle, although in the car or at the table you still have to bend over to the smartphone.
The new display is called Super Retina XDR and copies of Phone 11 pro max are produced using the same technology. Super bright screen supports HDR, Dolby Vision and True Tone when white balance changes with ambient light.
Many experts have called the display in the Korean copy of Phone 11 Pro Max the best in the world. Not only among smartphones, but among all consumer devices in general. smartphones, tablets, 4K TVs, monitors and laptops. We agree: the colors are perfect, absolutely not distorted at an angle, the black color is deep.
New replica Phone 11 Pro Max runs on an 8-core processor (Hyper-Threading overclocking). 2.4 GHz. Inside there are two types of cores: high-performance and low-performance.

So rest assured. such a smartphone will last you for a long time.!
How long does it take to charge the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max?
We have been waiting for this for many years and it happened, the new models of the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max received larger batteries.
This means that now you do not need to worry about every percentage of the charge.
So let’s figure out how much each of the models keeps charging.
How long does the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max charge / battery last??
If you went to this article, you probably have not bought any of these devices yet and you are interested in knowing the numbers.
Speaking of the data from the site, it is quite impressive. But do not forget that this is the time to work in ideal conditions.

All Комментарии и мнения владельцев are positive. Each of the users celebrate the incredible working time of each of the models.
It’s clear that you can find some kind of Android device that will last longer.
But it’s worth noting that Apple is as close to its competitors as possible and you can use the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro or iPhone 11 Pro Max all day and not worry about charging at all.
? Wide-angle camera in iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro. What changed
I noticed that many people incorrectly call the main camera in the iPhone. Either “shirik”, then “super-wide” they write, and you won’t understand what they really mean.
We remember. The main camera in the iPhone is wide-angle, and it has been since time immemorial. Do not confuse wide and ultrawide modules, they are completely different.
The wide-angle cameras of the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro Max are 100 percent identical. There is no hidden feature exclusively reserved for the Pro or Max models. I checked.
Non-zoomed shots on the iPhone 11 and Pro’s main cameras look the same on the MacBook Pro. In this situation (I will say more about zoom) between 11 and Pro there is full parity.
IPhone 11 screen resolution prevents camera photos from expanding properly.
However, I do not just mention a laptop with a good screen. On the smartphones themselves, the difference seems to be not in favor of the iPhone 11, and the reason for this is its display. As I did not like him in XR, he is not happy here either. Not so much color rendition as resolution.
With such a diagonal, the display of a regular “eleventh” iPhone does not convey all the detail of camera photos as well as the high-resolution OLED matrix in the iPhone 11 Pro does.
I can’t help myself, but I constantly see grain in the frames of the Film, which is not in the photo itself. I hope that next year this branch of smartphones will return at least an honest Full HD.
IPhone 11 main camera specifications
“Shirik” in the iPhone 11 and Pro consists of six lenses. Shoots at 12 megapixels with a pixel size of 1.4 microns (micrometer). Focal length. 26 mm, aperture ƒ / 1.8.
The iPhone XS had exactly the same parameters. Then what’s the upgrade?
First, the sensor has changed. How exactly it was improved, only Apple engineers know. Officially, they only said that the fast focus technology. Focus Pixels. now covers 100% of the matrix. No wonder
The camera now focuses faster and more accurately. Indeed, the difference between the iPhone 11 and, say, my old iPhone X is visible to the naked eye. Especially in low light conditions: “ten” misses four times out of five, when “eleventh” almost always captures even small details in the shadow in Focus.
Secondly, we added improved image stabilization in the video. There are a lot of examples, here is one of them:
Stabilization itself is not a new feature. It was in both the XS and X. This year Apple “just” changed both lens vibration reduction mechanics and post-processing.
The result when shooting handheld, IMHO, is very decent, but for a smartphone it is absolutely awesome. It is a pity that physics has not yet been able to deceive. strong shaking still causes the “wave” effect and image distortion. An external stabilizer is still needed if you are going to shoot a video for professional tasks.
Thirdly, we improved the Smart HDR post-processing algorithm thanks to the A13 processor in the iPhone 11. Due to it, the balance between light and shadows is better conveyed, which is especially important when shooting in sunny weather, in general during the day and especially in winter.

Snow is traditionally hard on smartphone cameras, and on my iPhone X it turned into a completely white canvas.
One can argue for a long time about why the change in the Smart HDR algorithm did not spread to the iPhone XS. but we will never know the answer to this, except for the person on duty (the processor seems to be new, all the cases). Unless we think it over and leave it on Apple’s conscience.
We figured out the technical differences, sample photos and comparison with the iPhone X below.
? The telephoto camera in the iPhone 11 Pro. Nice and useful upgrade
Television itself is not news at all for iPhones. It appeared in the iPhone 7 Plus, stayed with the 8 Plus, and then delighted X and XS owners, including the Max.
Only the iPhone 11 Pro and Pro Max have a telephoto lens this year. The captain suggests that the regular iPhone 11 doesn’t have it. The iPhone XR didn’t have it either.
So, I’m disappointed that the telephoto camera remains exclusive to the more expensive iPhone model. I do not speak for everyone, but most of the photos I take with the telephoto lens. Without her, it’s like no hands.
iPhone 11 Pro, telephoto, blur effects off.
Under normal lighting conditions, the telephoto lens provides a “free” optical zoom that allows you not to come very close to the subject and at the same time make it the real center of the frame, cutting off all unnecessary things. The absence of typical distortions for the “shirik” (the main lens of the iPhone) is also an important plus.
It’s great to shoot people, faces, animals on a telephoto camera, and even food due to the greater focal length. The resulting frame resembles the fruits of shooting with a good “SLR” plus a “fix” at 40mm. You can repeat this on the iPhone XR or iPhone 11 with their “widths” only in the photo editor, and then conditionally.
All in all, iPhone 11 owners walk past my favorite lens. But what’s new it will give iPhone 11 Pro buyers?
IPhone 11 Pro telephoto lens specifications
The TV set in the iPhone 11 Pro consists of six lenses and shoots photos at 12 megapixels. Pixel size 1.0 μm (micrometer). Focal length 52 mm, aperture ƒ / 2.0.
What are the differences here (and not only here) from the iPhone XS?
First, the aperture has finally been improved. What’s in X, what’s in XS / 2.4 is now 0.4 less.
In simple terms, the telephoto can now capture a little more light and blur the background a little more, even without portrait mode. ƒ / 2.0 matches the minimum aperture of many prime lenses for full-size cameras.
From a technical point of view, this is a big achievement for Apple and mobile photography in general. So that you understand, the Samsung Galaxy Note10 telephoto can “fall” to ƒ / 2.1, and the Huawei P30 Pro. and only up to ƒ / 3.4.
This is a photo on an iPhone 11 Pro telephoto without the software blur effect.
Secondly, “televik” now takes photos brighter and more detailed at the same time. Yes, the fact is logical according to the previous point, but you still need to talk about this separately.
See, here’s a tutorial on how telephoto lenses generally work on the iPhone. If there is a lot of light in the frame, then it actually works. As soon as the light “leaves”, the lens turns off automatically. it is replaced by the main camera (“shirik”) with the support of digital zoom. It is worse than the natural optical in the “telephoto”: more noise, less detail.
On the XS and X, the telephoto was very moody. If he doesn’t like it, he’s just say goodbye and hello to the digital zoom. On the iPhone 11 Pro, he became more patient. Changing the camera during the day is an exception to the rule both in cloudy weather and during the day indoors.
This means that photos on the telephoto lens of the iPhone 11 Pro will be captured more often on it, with a real optical zoom. The quality is better, the details are not lost in post-processing. I hope I explained more or less, my metaphors are not very good today.
Thirdly, portrait mode works at close range. I first noticed this during the shooting, then I looked at the characteristics and made sure. everything is logical with such an aperture upgrade.
No more nervously shaking the camera or walking far away trying to shoot something with a blur effect. The arm’s length is enough for the iPhone 11 Pro to successfully activate the effect.
It is difficult to explain what is so amazing here. It’s just that I was constantly bothered by the messages “step away” on the iPhone X. You stand and juggle the iPhone for 10 seconds, squat, take a step back there is no such thing anymore, and therefore I’m glad.
In general, any upgrade of this module will suit me, so I’m almost 100% satisfied here. He has only one drawback associated with the night mode (or rather, its absence).
Why iPhone needs an ultra-wide-angle camera?
It is very convenient for her to rent premises. No more huddling in a corner to capture an entire room. You can catch three walls in one fell swoop.
iPhone 11 Pro Max. 11 первых дел!
This is a great tool in everyday life. Need to quickly capture something large, and do not care about the distortion? We do not go far, 30 centimeters from the object is enough for it to get on the photo as a whole.
It’s easier to shoot architecture and nature. In addition to the creative side (do not forget about the distortions that can be beaten), with super-width it turns out to hook the entire building or landscape with minimal effort.
Super-wide video turns out to be at least unusual, with the effect of presence, especially in motion. It’s great for them to dilute the recordings from the main camera.
After all, this is the third camera in your iPhone. The creativity and utility of the smartphone only increases from this.
But it was not in vain that I wrote earlier that the ultra-wide-angle camera has room to grow.
? Ultra-wide-angle camera in iPhone 11. Better than GoPro
Here it is, the main feature of the new iPhones. The ultra-wide-angle camera is available in the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro / Max. Both technically and functionally, the module is absolutely the same in both smartphones.
There has never been a lens like this in any iPhone or iPad, it’s a novelty in the ecosystem. Maybe that’s why she, let’s say, is a little “undersized”.
This is exactly a tool, creative or even everyday. He has room to grow in everything, including the quality of filming. “Superwide” works without critical problems and fulfills its task, but there are still unusually many minor flaws and strange limitations.
The main thing about an ultra-wide-angle camera is how much information it captures in one frame. Thanks to the huge viewing angle of 120 degrees, almost everything that a person would see if the camera were right in front of his eyes fits into the photo.
If you take a photo in close proximity to your face, your legs and other hand will fall into the frame. Have you seen videos from action cameras like GoPro? Here, here is about the same story, but without the focus on the same action.
The shots themselves from the “super-wide” are very different from the usual for iPhones. The perspective is distorted, as if the picture was superimposed on a ball. Anything that falls on the edges of the photo is stretched in height. All straight mowing lines turn into an arc with the horizon.

IPhone 11 Ultra Wide Angle Lens Specifications
Ultrawide in the iPhone 11 and 11 Pro consists of five lenses and shoots photos at 12 megapixels. The pixel size is not yet known. Focal length 13 mm, aperture ƒ / 2.4.
There is nothing to compare them with, because other iPhones have never had such cameras. For understanding, the GoPro HERO7 action camera has a 12MP sensor, but focuses at 17mm and has a ƒ / 2.8 maximum aperture. That is, according to technical specifications, it is even worse than the one in the iPhone.
And yes, in most situations, the ultra-wide iPhone 11 really shoots noticeably better than the GoPro HERO7:
Apple more than deserves praise: although the new iPhone is not an alternative to an action camera, their first lens of a similar kind is by a margin ahead of the main ultra-wide in the world of gadgets, which is already seven (and more recently, eight) generations.
The ultra-wide lens has been appearing in Android flagships for a couple of years now, and we have already compared it to its closest competitor in terms of quality. the Huawei P30 Pro. Spoiler alert: iPhone shoots better overall.
