    Test – Apple iPhone 7 Plus
    After several weeks (or months) of rumors and tidibits, Apple has inducted, on the occasion of its sacrosanct keynote re-entry, the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus . Expected number of new products are thus confirmed. Among them, images enthusiasts can now count on the support – even partial – of RAW by 10 iOS as well as the presence of a dual camera module . In the heart of 7 More

    Like any new iteration of smartphones with apple this 7 th generation is expected to firm up by many photography enthusiasts. Apple had built a solid reputation in this area, but the brand has ceded its first place to Android smartphones in recent years. The new products announced be enough to meet the leaders of this type? Besides improving the intrinsic quality of the classic wide-angle module, the addition of an additional focal suited to capturing portraits constitute a technical feature that asks to prove.

    PHOTO MODULE

    Absent from the iPhone 7, the most anticipated new photographers is within the model of larger format what the iPhone 7 Plus . The back side of the smartphone in fact leaves appear two separate camera modules, offering sensors with the same definition but associated with different focal optics to avoid the inherent degradation using a digital zoom.

    As on the previous generation of smartphones of the brand, the most conventional camera module acquires a sensor with a resolution of 12 megapixels for a physical size of 1/3 “.
    Some changes, however, are to report the side of the optical part: it now benefits a focal length of 28 mm (equivalent 24×36), with an aperture of f / 1.8 and a stabilization.

    The second camera module is also a team 12MP sensor, but its size 1 / 3.6 “is less than that of his twin wrong. The optical part is very different, because this module offers a focal length of 56mm (equivalent 24×36) with f / 2.8 and unfortunately lacks optical stabilization.

    The second camera module should take advantage of the capacity of its (moderately) long lens to capture portraits, the latter being supplemented by a shooting mode with simulated effects of depth of field. He enjoys the physical offset between the two camera modules to calculate the distance between the camera and the subject photographed, differentiate the various planes that make up the image and simulate a field of depth. Note that this function has already been exploited by different smartphones (including Huawei P9 and Honor 8 , the latest examples) and always left us perplexed as to its effectiveness.

    The dual camera module proposed by the iPhone 7 Plus team is also a flash with 4 lEDs, while a new house would provide algorithm processing images with lightning efficiency (Apple promises up to 100 billion operations in 25 milliseconds).
    GETTING STARTED

    Compared to the previous two generations, the new large screen smartphone Apple evolves very little in its design. At first, only the protrusion due to the integration of a dual camera module marks a real break.

    We thus find a solid aluminum construction, the curves allow a good grip despite the large size of the iPhone 7 more.

    As always with Apple, you should forget any idea of removable battery or microSD slot for expanding the storage space. The firm at the apple, however we gratifies the sealed IP67 certification, or resistance to liquid immersion for up to 30 minutes and up to 1 m deep.

    Apple iPhone Test 7 More grip

    The iPhone 7 Plus has an IPS LCD Full HD (1920 x 1080 px), 5.5-inch (14 cm), a fine display of 401 ppi. If more high-end handsets are better on this last point, the Apple smartphone than makes up by offering a color copy management, with an average Delta E 1.4 and a color temperature of 6841 K. The tests laboratory made by our colleagues website the Digital relate more good results in terms of brightness, contrast and light reflection.

    Apple iPhone Test 7 More grip

    While most Android smartphones equip themselves with a physical shortcut to quickly start the camera application, Apple opted for a shortcut in the form of a pictogram, accessible from the terminal unlock screen . The maneuver is not less rapid and double iPhone’s camera module 7 Plus is thus always ready to be unsheathed.

    As on many smartphones, the volume buttons 7 Plus can serve as a trigger. Being located on the left edge of the device when held vertically, it is possible to reach with the thumb of the left hand or the index of the right hand in the direction in which the smartphone is held when positioned horizontally.
    INTERFACE

    Unlike its main competitors, and according to the tradition of Apple, the iPhone 7 Plus takes the opposite of the trend carried by the last two generations of high-end Android smartphones: no control over shooting parameters n ‘ is proposed.

    only the classic controls the flash and self-timer, some filters and HDR modes and Live Photo are accessible from the main shooting interface. While it is nice to deal with a simple and clear interface, it is a shame to be forced.

    Besides Pano shooting modes and Square already offered on the iPhone generation 6s on 7 Plus offers a portrait mode (currently available with the beta version of iOS 10.1). As mentioned, it takes advantage of the physical offset between the two camera modules to differentiate the various planes that make up the image and simulate a depth of field effect.
    In practice, this mode proves yet somewhat limited, since it can not be used below a certain level of brightness and outside a certain range of distance to the subject.

    Although Apple offers a well thought-editing interface with various filters and editing tools, we prefer those available in their dedicated applications. Especially if iOS 10 brought very happy supported RAW files, know that it is still impossible to capture or edit photos in this format using native applications for the iPhone 7 Plus. We must go through a third party application such as Lightroom Mobile in order to take photos to DNG and enjoy their flexibility during the editing phase.

    TEST LAB

    The native application for Apple smartphones do not offer manual controls, no ISO uphill test is possible. However, we have chosen to submit 3 different comparative situations to highlight the differences in terms of scope and quality angle induced by the use of a focal length of 28 mm, 56 mm and different zoom levels digital.
    field angles

    Latest shooting position from one photo to another, here’s the difference in angle of view and framing implied by the choice between the camera module featuring a focal length of 28 mm and with one of a focal length of 56 mm.

    zoom levels

    Sometimes mistakenly called “optical zoom”, the system used by the iPhone 7 Plus has two fixed focal length of 28 mm and 56 mm. Each zoom level used between the two and beyond 56 mm in fact corresponds to a digital zoom.

    This second comparative situation tries to highlight the differences in quality between the two smartphone camera modules and different zoom levels digital component levels between the two focal lengths available. To this end, one frame was respected in every shot.

    Using two different focal lengths for the same framing leads naturally notable aesthetic differences in perspective and crushing the plans, but the images obtained with the 28 mm and 56 mm differ on many other points.

    the two optical respectively with an aperture of f / 1.8 and f / 2.8, various shooting parameters are selected by the iPhone to get an equivalent exposure. At 28 mm, the image is captured with an exposure time of 1/35 s and a sensitivity of ISO 80, while at 56 mm, the same image is captured with an exposure time of 1/50 s and a 320 ISO. sensitivity

    in fact, the module 28 mm does not prove to be a master of precision, but deliver a level of detail corresponding to what we would expect from a high-end smartphone of the latest generation . The white balance is too hot here, although the palette of colors is correct transcribed. The processing of the image appears light, but however we deplore the presence of electronic noise from ISO 80.

    The aesthetic result of the image captured using the module 56 mm proves meanwhile less happy. Loss of detail and presence of sound are obvious, while there is a greenish drift worst effect. Despite its questionable quality, however this focal delivers better image quality that the different levels of digital zoom is approaching.
    photo application Apple vs Microsoft Pix

    To fully measure the difference in image quality between the camera module having a focal length of 56 mm and a 2x digital zoom from 28mm, we chose to compare images captured with the application native picture Apple and Microsoft Pix. Note that both applications have many similarities in terms of interface and results.

    Apart from a few aesthetic differences caused by the use of these two distinct applications, the results confirm previous observations: despite some softness, a greenish color drift and poor management of electronic noise, the module 56 mm delivers better quality images than digital zoom offering an equivalent angle of view.
    FIELD TEST

    If it is simple and uncluttered, the shooting interface of the iPhone 7 Plus limit the user experience to the most basic principles of photography. Budding photographers find reassuring automation, while advanced users will feel certainly frustrated by the absence of any adjustment. We are once again far releasable modes offered by all high-end Android smartphones on the market.

    Note however that the use of two camera modules suffers no slow – Over 7 is thus in the top the basket of camera phones in 2016 in terms of speed of development and general responsiveness.

    While all brands grew in the management of color and white balance, the iPhone 7 Plus has often warm colors and sometimes made somewhat atypical. The wide-angle module does not stand out from the competition by its transcription finer detail and noise control in low light situation, but it has still the merit of offering a discreet enhancement software. In addition, its sensor surprised us by its dynamic: it can then highlight and shadow relatively contrast scenes.

    If the module 56 mm provides results similar aesthetics, opening lower diaphragm and its smaller sensor predestined it to do less well than the module 28 mm, and at all levels. One glaring inaccuracy is thus observed, while the lack of optical stabilization is acute.

    Based on a non-final software optimization, the portrait is itself difficult to judge in the present state of things. Our various tests have however revealed a loss greater detail in the conventional use of 56 mm, and errors of differentiation plans when creating the effect of depth of field as desired.
    VIDEO

    The iPhone 7 Plus offers to record video in 2160p 30fps, 1080p 60/30 fps and 720p 30 fps. An Idle Mode allows recording in 1080p and 720p up to 120 fps to 240 fps. The camera module featuring a 28mm being the only one to be equipped with optical stabilization, capturing videos using the 56 mm module is satisfied with a simple digital stabilization.

    Faithful to the interfaces making views sleek Apple, the video mode of the iPhone 7 Plus sees is extremely bare in terms of settings.

    If the optical stabilization reduces somehow the movements of the operator when using the module 28 mm, it is sorely lacking when the module 56 mm is used. Like its high-end competitors, image quality and color rendering of the iPhone 7 Plus are correct, but less than what is proposed in the picture.
    VERDICT

    Apple iPhone 7 Plus test recommended by Digital Focus

    Just a few months ago, while the LG G5 pointing the tip of his optical ultra wide-angle, we thought skeptical of the proposed choice of focal lengths; we believe that a combination of optical 28 mm and 50 mm (equivalent 24×36) would have been the perfect duo. If the iPhone 7 Plus has the merit of proposing such a device, we regret many of the features that accompany it.

    The optical low opening and the small sensor module 56 mm probably meet size requirements and cost, but surely come to spoil the party. Also, dress up the optical wide-angle optical stabilization and deny the module dedicated to the portrait seems quite inconsistent.

    Despite its good intentions, the iPhone 7 Plus do not revolutionize the hierarchy of best picture smartphones. In the current state of things (that is to say with a non-definitive portrait mode), the added value provided by the 56 mm is real, but not remarkable.
    If you have an urge with a smartphone normal fixed focus, go for it: the iPhone 7 Plus is the only one to be with. Otherwise, we urge you to consider before any photographic features offered by the wide-angle unit, since it is the main module of the smartphone.

    This module is not perfect, but it competes in quality with those of many top smartphone range. While we regret a color management below our expectations as well as a transcript of perfectible details (especially in low light conditions), we particularly appreciate the quality of screen he acquires and dynamics offered by the sensor. The new iPhone is changing, but is instead in line with its predecessors.

    If we recommend this smartphone is only to photography enthusiasts ready to pay the price to find the ergonomics of Apple devices, their shooting interface simple and effective, and their warm images. Indeed, smartphones apple, moving only in a unique ecosystem, are a unique offering of their kind.

    Whether it’s Huawei P9 and its camera module dedicated to black and white, the LG G5 and its optical ultra wide-angle, or the Samsung Galaxy S7 and responsiveness foolproof, 2016 saw the emergence of competing offers many original and cheaper. Buy the latest iPhone is so, again and again, a choice that goes beyond the photographic discipline.
