“I-phone may announce its biggest camera jump ever”- says a tech blogger John Gruber. John frequently writes about applet at DaringFireball. In a very recent post regarding the i-phone’s camera he mentions the moves that apple is about to make in the coming year. Ever since 2007 apple has tried to improve the camera quality in its i-phones however the most major improvement is about to happen next year.
According to john:
“The specific thing I heard is that next year’s camera might be the biggest camera jump ever. I don’t even know what sense this makes, but I’ve heard that it’s some kind of weird two-lens system where the back camera uses two lenses and it somehow takes it up into DSLR quality imagery.”
In the current market HTC’s One M8 also features the same ‘Duo lens camera’ technology in which a standard sensor is paired with an ultrapixel sensor that captures more light in order to result better quality images and also creates DOF due to the duo camera system. Additionally the one M8 camera offers fast AF system.
The rumored I-phone camera is said to be based on the same technology as that of M8 and the camera might be developed and designed by the existing company Corephotonics.
“Corephotonics system takes advantage of two lenses with separate focal lengths, switching between lenses to magnify distant subjects without the need for a traditional zoom. With two lenses, the Corephotonics system compares images taken from both, choosing the clearest pixels for the best overall photo. It also utilizes a lens that only snaps black and white images, improving fidelity and allowing in additional light.”
We all know that rumors state improvement in just the lenses of the phones camera but to achieve image quality similar to that of DSLR’s apple will have to make much better adjustments like the sensor size and several other parts.
