Apple Heralds Dawn of Dual Lens Camera
Dual lens smartphones to become the norm, says Corephotonics
MADISON, Wis. — Apple’s newly announced iPhone 7 Plus, with a dual-lens camera designed to provide both telephoto-zoom and depth of field features, is likely to set a new high in the industry standard for image quality never before imagined for mobile photography.
Although unlikely to completely replace digital single reflex cameras, Philip Schiller, senior vice president of worldwide marketing at Apple, boasted during the Apple event Wednesday, “This is the best camera ever made in any smartphone.”
Consisting of a 28mm wide-angle lens and a 56mm telephoto, iPhone 7 Plus’ dual lens is designed to offer 2x optical zoom, and up to 10x digital zoom.
