iPhone 5S Camera: Better Optics, f/2.2 Aperture, Slow Motion And ‘True Tone’ Flash


At today’s event, while unveiling the new iPhone 5S, Apple has talked quite a bit about the new and improved camera. Although the new iPhone 5S still rocks 8MP, the new camera has a 5-element lens with an aperture of f/2.2 on top of a sensor with a surface area that is 15% larger than it is on the iPhone 5.

The new iPhone 5S also ships with a ‘True Tone’ dual-LED flash, with different color temperatures on each LED. The new flash should fix ( as much as possible for now ) the washed=out look and unnatural coloration flash usually offers when shooting pictures in low-light.

Apple has also mentioned the iPhone 5S’ slow-motion ( video camera can take 720p at 120 frames per second ) and burst mode ( can take up to 10 shots per second ) capabilities.
