Join Seán Duggan for an in-depth discussion in this video Optical zoom vs. digital zoom, part of iPhone and iPad Photography with iOS 12.
- [Instructor] Some iPhone models come…with dual lenses, a wide angle lens…and a moderate telephoto, or portrait, lens.…And there's also a digital zoom feature…that you can use on single lens iPhones,…as well as the dual lens models.…If you have an iPhone with dual lenses,…tap on the 1x button to switch…to the tele or portrait lens.…The button will change to show 2x.…With a single lens iPhone, or with the dual lens model,…you can also use your thumb and forefinger…to zoom in on the scene for a closer view,…and then pinch together to zoom back out.…
The iPhone 7 and 8 offer a 5x digital zoom,…and the 7 Plus, 8 Plus, and the iPhone 10 models…have an optical zoom that goes up to 2x,…and then a digital zoom up to 10 times.…There's an arc-shape slider for adjusting the digital zoom.…When you zoom beyond 2x times on the dual camera models,…tapping the lens button resets it back to 1x.…Another thing to keep in mind is that camera motion…is more likely to show when you're zoomed in closer.…
Especially in lower light situations.…
