Iphone 14 Pro Photo Test: Apple converts to major sensors, but misses the zoom test

The three iPhone 14 Pro Camera modules

M6: Leica (re) launches a silver camera

The gains brought by the largest ultra-angle sensor, the passage from a 26 mm to 24 mm and by the 48 Mpix of the main module are welcome. But the iPhone 14 Pro remain very conservative, both on the power of zoom and the character of optics, which lack punch.

It has been several years since Apple is no longer the first in our top 10 photo smartphones. But the American still has a strength: he is still placed in the top 5. If the classification of competing terminals fluctuate, that of the iPhone is more constant. They are in pictures like other areas: solid and effective. Unlike the actors of the Android world, technological progression at Apple is always measured, weighed, prudent – and, let’s be honest, also very frustrating. The Cupertino giant is never in an innovative position, but in the refinee strategy. However, with a war treasure of several tens of billions of dollars, Apple could go further than everyone. But prefers to act as the most conservative actor in the industry.

True to this prudence, it took several years for Californian society to abandon its sacro-saint 12 Mpix sensor for a new model of 48 Mpix. A sensor that always produces 12 Mpix images (unless you shoot in RAW). But who benefits from an overchanting improving image quality, thanks to a micro-detail supplement and a perceptible reduction in digital noise.

All possible framing from 13 mm to 77 mm

Always composed of three camera modules, the iPhone 14 Pro do not offer physical changes immediately perceptible compared to the previous generation (which already looked a lot in the previous one !)). If you want a complete reminder of the technical sheet and the Apple promise, we devoted a long article during the announcement of the terminals – article centered only on the iPhone 14 pro/pro max.

Main module: a supplement of details (but not the game change that we were waiting)

Breaking with years of native resolution, Apple has finally passed on the side ” sham ” of the force. The 48 Mpix sensor that the company uses for its main camera module is not only the largest, but also the most defined that it has never used for one of these terminals. However, this is not an extraordinary sensor. And his performances, although good, did not captivate us (read below).

Let’s first look at the glass half full: yes, this sensor brings an image quality supplement. To tell the truth, especially for us “Pixel Peepers”, camel devices and other pixel dissections. Because on the phone screen, it is quite unlikely that you can measure the extent of progress. Which is not so serious: the iPhone already make good photos for the general public, it was here to satisfy its audience of photographers.

Given the place of the iPhone on the market and its specificity, a photo terminal test is the standard at 01net.com. And the arrival of the new 48 Mpix sensor forced us to compare it to the previous generation as well as a competitor terminal with a solid photo partition, the Vivo X80 Pro.

By staying in the Apple repository, you can see that the brand has done a good job. She has kept her color rendering between terminals of different generations … in most scenes. Because Apple has also done background work on the white balance (WB) especially in low lights. The tones, once artificially cooled by the average temperature assessment module, are finally warmer and closer to reality – the rendering of sodium lamps are finally fair. Apple remains one of the references of the interpretation of colors – and intermodula.

That said, if the shots are clean, the level of details increasing (even in low lights, look at the zoom 100% above), they lack pep, of character. In the world of photo, we speak of “stung” for the 3D rendering effect of certain “real” optical, velvety for the transitions of net zones to blurred. And also effective the optics of the iPhone 14 Pro is it, it lacks these two characteristics.

Main module: effective development, but lack of intelligence

L

On the autofocus side, if the results are good in many situations, Apple is now back in terms of subjects recognition. While a number of cameras and Sony’s smartphones are more and more likely to distinguish living subjects (not only humans, but also pets, birds, etc.), the iPhone 14 is set back in this area with our animals.

With a powerful neural processor and a house ISP, the Apple terminal has no really excuses not to develop such recognition. This remains a chance for the competition, especially that of the “real” cameras. Here, our friend Mirage (a very nice pussy, despite her little -growing head) is not clear for a penny.

L

Apple keeps the approach – dogma ! – Born of the iPhone 4: Absolute priority to trigger to have the scene. But when we see the follow -up of the subject and the burst of an Xperia 1 Mark IV, we tell ourselves that Apple still has a sacred margin of progress to offer a autofocus of “real” camera.

Main module: a real/false 50 mm that is happy

Zoom X2 - 01 - Starting level in X1

Zoom X2 - 02 - Level X2

The other use that is made of this definition of 48 Mpix per Apple is to use the 12 million photodiodes in its center to make a crop which gives a 48 mm equivalent (almost a 50 mm, a flagship focal length of “real” Photo box). In this configuration (zoom x2), we do not benefit from the effect of overchanting. But we take advantage of an intermediate zoom level offering a comfortable definition of 12 Mpix.

This virtual focal length allows you to add an additional “native” zoom gradient: x0.5 (ultra big angle 12 Mpix), X1 (Module MADE MAIN CAMERA 48 MPIX> 12 MPIX), X2 (Recording the main sensor) and x3 (telephoto objective equipped with a 12 Mpix). This greater focal granularity gives more tools to photographers to build their images without having to go through the software software reels – sometimes mediocre rendering.

Apple iPhone 14 Pro -Valve

If we like this focal length (and we like it !), why talk about real/false 50 mm then ? Simply because cropping a 50 mm semblance in an image captured with a focal length equivalent to a 24 mm does not restore the native effect of the perspectives. To understand this, it must be remembered that the wider an angle of vision, the more the lines of perspective seem distant. And that the more an angle of vision is tightened, the closer the lines of perspective. Images of skyscrapers or mountains “stacked” the one on the others are thus made with telephoto lens. And the images with distant horizon lines, they, with large angles.

This “loss” must be put into perspective in the case of smartphones. Small sensors limit the effects of “powerful” perspectives. This loss is more marked as the sensors grow – the 50 mm reframing of the leica Q2’s 28 mm optics certainly does not have the punch of a real 50 mm ! We are here delighted that Apple recovers this good idea from Android terminals.

24 mm: only 2 mm more, but a real benefit !

iPhone 13 Pro Max - Main MODULE Main Camera Equivalent 26 mm

After staying for years “blocked” at 26 mm, Apple finally alignments with the competition in angular coverage of its main camera module and offers a 24 mm (in 24 × 36 equivalent)). As usual, Apple is not trying to be better saying, but wants to master the tool. And the mastery is there: the deformations are perfectly corrected, the rendering of the image is very homogeneous and very precise. Unlike certain fairly inconsistent marks in terms of optical quality.

iPhone 14 PRO - 24 mm equivalent main camera module

What is the benefit of “only” two millimeters ? More than the figures let him think. Because you should know that in the high-angle and very much angle values, each millimeter has a lot more impact on angular coverage than in the field of telephoto lens. Clearly, as soon as you are below 28 mm, it is very noticeable. After 50 mm the impact of the effect of each “millimeter” is much less. It is thus much easier to make the difference between a 24 and a 26 mm than between an 85 and a 90 mm for example !

24 mm wide angle

Here, the small supplement (well mastered once again) angle of view can be precious for landscapes and photos in very cramped interiors. Apple could have been more innovative obviously, but we always feel conservatism (the reluctance ?) Mastodon to get out of … Framework in this field, where the Android world is much more dynamic. But let’s not sulk the pleasure of iPhone enthusiasts.

However, we have something to complain about this perspective: in addition to a lack of dive (we will come back to it), Apple is not up to surface treatment. And its main camera module is thus sensitive to “flares”.

Main module: Optics poorly protected against parasitic lights

Flare iPhone 14 Pro 01 - Full Main Module

An optics is a device made up of several lenses which collect, on a given angular coverage, the light. Or rather the lights: if the sun is the only source you will find in the Australian bush, urban areas often have several different sources: public lighting, house windows, car headlights, etc. With color temperatures, intensities but also different trajectories of rays.

Flare iPhone 14 Pro 02 - Main module details

However, these sources can create light artefacts like the halos you see below surrounded in red. These halos called ” flares “(Proceed” Flère “) come from the lampposts that illuminate this avenue.

Flare iPhone 13 Pro 04 - Main module

If you compare side by side the clichés of the iPhone 14 pro and its ancestor, the iPhone pro, you find that Apple is (as always) constant: the two optical blocks of the main camera modules of these terminals show the same sensitivity to this purpose.

Lack of flare on the vivo x80 pro

By way of comparison, the main camera module of Vivo’s X80 Pro shows no weakness of the genre. If the optical formula-that is to say the number, the form, the quality, etc. Lentils – has an influence on reducing this effect, another weapon has a significant effect: surface treatment of optics. By signing with German Zeiss, Vivo takes advantage of the know-how of T* treatment (pronounced “Ti star” in English, or “te stern” in German).

Far from being a simple chemical formula, T* treatment is a series of chemical, hardware and software qualifications specific to each optics to reduce or even completely cancel the effects of flare. And if this mention is not the mark of a perfect optics, it is however the guarantee that these parasitic effects are under control. And we see that this is not the case with Apple.

Ultra Grand Angle that improves well (but interest in limited macro)

IPhone 14 Pro Photo Test - Hamp 01

Apple has finally used a larger sensor for its ultra-angle camera module: too small 1/3.5 ’’ succeeds a 1/2.55 ’’ ’’ ’’ ’’ ’’ ’’ ’’ ’’ ’’ ’’ ’’. A size that echoes a previous model: it is the same kind of sensor that equipped the main camera module of the iPhone XS (seven. 2018) ! The image quality is logically increasing, with effectively less digital noise, an excellent correction of optical deformations and a good level of detail. We are not at the level of what Huawei terminals could have produced with their ultra-wide “giant” sensors (Ahhhh, the wonder of Mate 40 Pro), but it is good progress.

From the point of view of micro-details, Apple offers here even more consistency than in the past: the colors were already connected, now the granulosity of the pixels that we observe at 100% is marked by the same qualities … and the same defects (smoothing always too strong).

Well corrected, the optics are clean, but lacks (as usual) of punch. Without having the details of the optical formulas either than suppliers, we are ready to bet that Apple favors regularity and homogeneity to the character and the dive of the image of the image. Fortunately, the a posteriori software processing allows you to recover sharpness.

On the macro side, we camp in our positions: the interest of having it on the ultra grand angle is very (very) limited. Besides the rendering of the perspectives not very interesting on the composition side, it is often difficult to play with the light by being so close to the subject. It is also a point of view shared by the photo industry: no optics of “real” camera is stamped “macro” below 35 mm (and in the case of 35 mm, it is advisable , as for the iPhone, to talk about proximity photography). Yes, the proximity development potential is nice to have, but we would prefer to be able to take stock with the telephoto lens, which is tightened, and isolates the subjects much better.

Telephoto: no quality improvement and lack of power

Apple iPhone 14 PRO - Telephoto Equivanet 77 mm

Point of change for the 77 mm f/2 equivalent.8 equipped with a small 12 -size Mpix sensor (1/3.5 ’’): it’s the same as that of iPhone 13 pro. By being very (too much !) modest on the power of zoom, Apple however does not take any risk as to the image quality. Stabilizing and unlocking an image with an angular coverage so wide (for a telephoto lens) is easier than for an equivalent 135, or even 240 mm (as at Samsung and Huawei) !

Apple iPhone 14 Pro - Portrait 01 Teleobjective

In fact, shots in broad daylight are good. Once again, telephoto lens in particular of Huawei are better – we think of the excellent 125 mm of the Mate 40 Pro – but that of Apple remains one of the best in the category of “small” telephoto lens (less than 100 mm). And above all, the image processing and the nature of the colors are connected with the other camera modules. Which does not mean that we are completely satisfied.

On the one hand we can regret the lack of progress on this module – at the price where the iPhone are, we can objectively raise any point which does not present any generational progress ! But more than the image quality – rather good – it is on the side of power that we have grievances towards Apple.

Zoom contest - 02 iPhone 14 Pro, Télébébjectif equivalent 77 mm

Zoom competition - 0samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra 5g equivalent 240 mm

Compare the differences in zoom power between the “old” Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra 5g, with its 270 mm equivalent and the 77 mm small of the iPhone of the iPhone. While Samsung, Huawei and others offer telephurments that transform your smartphone into a travel camera, Apple sins once again by its conservatism.

Solid software interface, but always incomplete

It is sometimes important to take a break on the software interface. To the exhaustiveness of Android terminals, has always opposed simplicity in iOS. An increasingly beaten simplicity in breach by the regular addition of features-Modes (time-lapse, kinematics) change of image ratio, exhibition correction, etc.

This simplicity will appeal to all those who use their iPhone as a simple digital memo – and to third -party software publishers to whom Apple leaves a little business ! However, we regret access to RAW format (Apple Proraw): Impossible to activate this mode in the photo application. You must go to “Settings / Camera / Formats”. A finger movement to get out of the application, a click on parameters, a long scrolling and the identification of the icon, then two clicks and the activation of the function: it’s long, too long. This is all the more so than with an initial quality software treatment, an amateur photographer will especially want to activate the RAW in certain cases-difficult light, misinterpreted countenance, etc. Apple would win (again …) to align with competitors and allow access to this format directly from the application).
However, it would seem that Apple was aware of this problem. This ergonomic aberration should be corrected very soon, because the beta of iOS 16.1 already allows you to easily activate/deactivate Proraw mode, once it has been the first time in the centralized Camera Application settings. Hopefully this adjustment will always be present in the final version.

We want a bigger zoom

Another software lack: that of a digital zoom validated by Apple beyond X3. We would have desired that the company is inspired by what Google offers on its pixel-and in particular its brand new pixel 7 pro-that is to say an additional zoom software level. An opt-digital “X6” focal button, the quality of which would have been optimized by company engineers and would partially have the limit of the zoom power of the native telephoto lens.

Don’t get me wrong: the photo partition of the iPhone 14 Pro is good, very good. Whether in color rendering, level of details (in progress), autofocus (always good) or in ease of use. But with such high prices, such a position as world leader in high -end smartphones, such potential budgets, etc. The conservative side and follower of Apple necessarily annoys. We were expecting even larger sensors, more efficient zooms, a more impactful and above all smarter autofocus (the NPU allows !)). And we only have an iPhone 13 pro certainly improved, but not transcended.

iPhone 14 or iPhone 14 Pro, what is the best in pictures ?

Between the iPhone 14 and the iPhone 14 Pro, what is the model that takes the best photos ? The iPhone 14 Pro ? But to what extent ?

Posted on November 6, 2022 at 6:00 p.m

Opposing the iPhone 14 to the iPhone 14 Pro … The fight seems lost in advance, isn’t it ? After all, if the pro model is the most expensive, it is also that it is the best, no ? No doubt, but to what extent exactly ? And above all, the basic models cannot meet your photo needs ? Answer in this photo comparison.

The iPhone 14 pro at the best price

Ready to succumb to the charms of the latest iPhone ? Here are the lowest prices on the market, to do good business.

iPhone 14 128 GB at the best price basic price: € 1,019
iPhone 14 Plus 128 GB at the best price basic price: € 1,169
iPhone 14 pro 128 GB at the best price basic price: € 1,329
iPhone 14 pro max 128 GB at the best price basic price: € 1,479

Note: For this comparison, we opposed the iPhone 14 Plus to the iPhone 14 Pro. Nevertheless, the results would be exactly the same if we had compared the iPhone 14 to the iPhone 14 Pro Max.

A technical point on the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro

They are so close and so different at the same time. These two models may be part of the same range, they are not really alike and it is of course worth for the shutter of the photo.

The basic models stand at two focal lengths with a wide angle and an ultra -wide angle. The first opens at f/1.5 and the second at f/2.4 and they are placed above two sensors of 12 million pixels. Photonic Engine responds, as well as the Deep Fusion or the Smart HDR 4. The main sensor is stabilized, but with the first version of the system developed by Apple.

“Pro” models, for their part, go much further. The main sensor reaches 48 million pixels and it benefits from the new version of the brand’s mechanical stabilization. Apple placed above a wide angle opening at f/1.78. The second sensor reaches 12 million pixels and it is accompanied by an ultra wide angle opening at f/2.2. The sensor is a little larger than that of the iPhone 14 Plus. As for the third sensor, it is a 12 million pixel sensor and it is accompanied by a telephoto lens offering an opening to F/2.8. All technos specific to iPhone 14 Plus are also present on this model.

The wide angle

The two iPhones display a lot of differences in the wide angle. And the main one relates to the definition. The sensor of the iPhone 14 Pro is indeed four times more defined than that of the cheapest models.

On the other hand, to allow it to shoot in full definition, it will be necessary to switch to the Proraw mode. The automatic modes for their part generate images of 12 million pixels. Images obtained by combining four pixels in one.

Day and at first glance, it is very difficult to decide between the two devices. In both cases, we have a rather clean rendering. The photos are bitten, with a lot of details recovered at the shadows and highlights.

However, when we look more seriously in the photos, we can distinguish some differences. The pro model offers an increased level of detail, especially in shadows. And by carefully observing the image, we see that he also recovered more details on textures such as the background wall, the bench or the rubble at the train station level. Even the pink tag is clearer on the pro model.

Indoors too, the two iPhones offer a similar rendering. But again, just take the time to examine the details of the photos to find that the iPhone 14 Pro displays a smoother rendering when his comrade manages to recover a lot of details at the level of the coffee mousse or still patterns of the plateau. However, at first glance, it does not necessarily jump out in the eyes.

Still night, it feels like the photos come out of the same device. Besides, in a way, it is almost a feat when we take into account the differences in definition between the sensors of the two devices. This proves without the shadow of a doubt that Apple engineers master quad pixel technology on their fingertips.

That said, the iPhone 14 Pro always offers a slightly smoother rendering. He also better managed the rise in sensitivity. A little grain appears at the level of shadows on the iPhone 14 Plus.

Let’s be clear, unless you put photos of iPhone 14 Plus and iPhone 14 pro side by side and zoom far from it, you will not see any difference. The two phones are really in the shoulder.

Now, the most expensive model still manages to recover a little more details in broad daylight while providing better management of the night’s rise in sensitivity. He is therefore a bit above his comrade.

Ultra wide angle

Here, the definition does not change. In both cases, you will find sensors of 12 million pixels. On the other hand, the sensor of the iPhone 14 Pro is physically bigger. Which also means that his photosites are larger … and therefore that they will be able to recover a little more light.

The iPhone 14 Pro displays a little more differences on the ultra -wide angle. Once again, it is not necessarily striking at first glance, but its sensor offers a better dynamic. He was also more precise. The contours drool less, the textures are better detailed and the rendering is generally more flattering on the most expensive iPhone.

A first confirmed impression when you start shooting in low light. In this image, for example, the iPhone 14 Pro managed to recover much more details in terms of shadows. Some branches on the tree located in the middle of the scene are indeed absent on the iPhone 14 Plus.

Here, therefore, we can clearly see that the iPhone 14 Pro is above his comrade. The texture of the trunk is more detailed, the same for the shrub located in the background, near the bench.

Same thing in this photo, taken once again at night. The iPhone 14 Pro displays a more detailed image, with better management of the rise in sensitivity. On the iPhone 14 Plus side, you can actually see grain on the facade of the building located in the background, an absent grain on the most expensive iPhone.

The iPhone 14 Pro Broan also a little, but the phenomenon is much less marked.

Here, the gap between the two iPhones is more significant. The iPhone 14 Pro gets much better than its colleague. Fewer noises, more details, better dynamics, it exceeds it in every way. And even more night when it is advantaged by the size of its sensor.

Optical and digital zooms

You know, but the iPhone 14 pro and iPhone 14 Plus are not equal on the zoom. And this for a fairly simple reason, the iPhone 14 Plus is completely devoid of it. The enlargements are therefore operated in a digital way. That said, it seemed interesting to me to also oppose them on this ground, if only to know if Apple’s software processing manages to fill the holes.

The X2 zoom

In the middle of the day, you will not see a blatant difference on the X2. And it is even amazing how similar the rendering will be from one iPhone to another.

I expected a bigger difference between the two devices. Unlike her boyfriend, the iPhone 14 Pro does not make a digital enlargement to obtain this zoom level. He is content to recover the 12 million pixels located in the center of his main sensor.

At night, the difference is much more palpable. The photos of iPhone 14 Plus are less precise, whether in terms of contours or textures. We can also see that many artifacts are present in the image. For its part, the iPhone 14 Pro offers a clearer, more precise rendering.

X3 zoom

In X3, the iPhone 14 Plus really starts to suffer. If his photos will remain usable, they are still much less precise than that of the iPhone 14 Pro. Which is quite logical. The latter is indeed equipped with a real optical zoom equivalent to a 77 mm and capable of offering an optical magnification in 3X.

And of course, the more carefully we observe the image, the more we realize that the iPhone 14 plus is hanging around. The rendering is more imprecise, with slobbery contours and fairly approximate textures. Without forgetting this grain which covers the whole image a little.

At night, the two phones meet on their knees. The iPhone 14 Plus is completely in cabbage. Contours, textures, nothing goes. The iPhone 14 Pro is more precise for its part, but the images are far too rough and they will at the same time be difficult to exploit.

X5 zoom

Unsurprisingly, in X5, the situation is getting worse for the iPhone 14 Plus. The images lack precision. The contours go in all directions, the textures are coarse and the phone even ignores certain elements constituting the background. The iPhone 14 Pro also suffers, but its images remain usable.

In the dark, we obtain very different results. If the iPhone 14 Plus is completely next to its pumps, the iPhone 14 Pro is not doing much better. The loss of details is obvious, especially when you zoom in zooming. Here, the photo is more from the coarse sketch than the snapshot. In both cases, we end up with unusable images.

What surprised me the most here is the X2. I expected the iPhone 14 Plus to see its performance collapsed, but it is doing very well thanks to the excellent software processing of Apple of Apple. To the point that it is impossible to decide between the two devices.

On the other hand, when you get higher in magnifications, the performance of the two devices collapse. The iPhone pay once again the absence of a periscopic zoom.

Portrait mode

Portrait mode is doing a lot of interest. When an iPhone shoots in this mode, it actually uses several different algorithms to cut the subject or even generate the background blur. This mode is therefore also a good way to experience Apple software processing.

By day, the two iPhones display blatant differences. Portraits are indeed more detailed on the iPhone 14 Pro side. On these images, for example, the most expensive iPhone managed to recover more details at the Romy muzzle. Besides, we note that the focusing distance is not quite the same from one phone to another.

On the iPhone 14 pro, Romy is indeed clear from the truffle ears. The iPhone 14 Plus stands for its part in the back of its head. The cutout is also more precise on the large model.

Indoors, with a studio light and a human subject, the two phones are elbow. In both cases, the rendering is natural and rather flattering. The subject is well cut, even though he holds three quarters. The blur remains natural.

However, by carefully observing the details of the two images, we see that the iPhone 14 Plus offers a more imprecise, coarse rendering. The nuances of the Iris of the subject are better restored on the iPhone 14 Pro. No cutting concern, however.

For this last example, I pushed the two phones in their last entrenchments. These images were indeed shot in a room plunged in the dark. And in both cases, the photos will be completely unusable.

On the other hand, the iPhone 14 Pro has managed to recover a little more details, and what is in the hair or even the texture of the skin.

Without the shadow of a doubt, the iPhone 14 Pro is very clearly above his little comrade. His photos are more precise, whether in full light or in full darkness.

And above all, it is much more flexible by offering no less than three zoom levels: 1x, 2x or 3x. The iPhone 14 Plus stands for its part in the 1x and it must be admitted that it disappoints a little.

Selfies

The iPhone 14 Plus and iPhone 14 Pro have the same front camera, a front camera with a 12 million pixel sensor and an optics opening at F/1.9. On paper, therefore, they should offer a fairly similar rendering.

And in fact, this is the case. By day, the two phones are impossible to decide between. The photos are both clear and precise. Nothing to say either in terms of cutting. She also hits the thousand and the bokeh is also very natural.

The observation is the same when the light begins to decrease. Even in the dark, nothing seems to be able to decide between them. If it is only the iPhone 14 Plus displays a slightly more rough rendering. A difference which can be explained by the presence of the A16 chip, a chip reserved this year for the most expensive iPhone.

When one shoots at night, the iPhone activates a flash. Their screen becomes white to enlighten us. And again, the results are quite similar. At least at first glance. Indeed, the pro model better manages the rise in sensitivity. His photos are thus less rough.

Contrary to what we would have thought, the iPhone do not play equal play on the field of selfies. If their photos remain close, the most expensive model manages the rise in sensitivity much better. To believe that it benefits directly from the power gain provided by the chip A16.
