Every other hand not so much has a ring on it than an iPhone. Wherever you look today, you will see someone Facetiming, or maybe iMessaging or simply clicking selfies using their iPhone.

iPhone has become synonymous with excellence, be it its features or be it the heavily-equipped camera that it houses. Over the years, with the release of new models, everyone seems to have placed iPhone at a pedestal where no other smartphone seems to reach.

With the launch of the new iPhone 8, iPhone 8+ and the iPhone X, there has been a whisper of excitement around the new camera features these models own.

Here is a look over at the new camera features of the iPhone 8 and iPhone X:

1.Camera And Aperture: The iPhone 8 has a single 12-megapixel camera with a f/1.8 aperture, while the iPhone 8+ owns a dual 12-megapixel camera with the wide angle aperture of f/1.8 and the telephoto aperture of f/2.8. The iPhone X is nearly similar to the iPhone 8+ in most features including the dual 12-megapixel camera but has apertures of f/1.8 and f/2.4 also, the iPhone X’s telephoto lens opens notably wider than that of the iPhone 8.   

 

2.Optical Image Stabilization: Image stabilization is that feature which prevents blurry pictures caused by shaky hands. iPhone 8 and 8+ both have OIS, while the iPhone X has dual OIS, which means clearer pictures and less motion blur. In iPhone 8+ however, only the primary lens has OIS, whereas, in iPhone X, both lenses have OIS, for better and sharper selfies.

3.The iPhone 8 and 8+ house a new feature of “Portrait lighting” which enables different lighting conditions to create perfect portraits. Portrait Lighting entails numerous lighting effects for the eager photographer. These can be enlisted as:

Stage Light Mono – black and white version of Stage Light

Stage Light - fades the background to black

Contour Light -  offers sharp contours to your face, giving it a vogue-cover appearance

Studio Light -  gives you a real studio-like effect by giving an even, soft spread of light across your subject

Natural Light – subtle and softer lighting effect

4.The iPhone X includes the Portrait Mode for your selfies which helps you create a blurry effect and clear foregrounds, for better self-portraits.

 5.iPhones have already become a favorite for most amateur photographers, thanks to the sharper clarity, focus, panoramas and what not. To top it all the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8+ can capture 4K video at up to 60 frames/second and give you beautiful slow-motion videos at up to 1080p and 240 frames/second.

 

6.The buzz around iPhone X's 5.8-inch "Super Retina" OLED display can be heard by everyone. This feature lays out a better, clearer and more vibrant viewfinder and frame so that you can click more beautiful photos and shoot high-quality videos.
