While taking the selfie, the displayed image is mirrored so you can line things up easier. This is demonstrated in the first image.
After the photo is taken, the image is unmirrored and displayed naturally. This is demonstrated in the second image.
Go to Settings > Camera.
You can select resolution and FPS for video & slo-mo. However, you cannot change the photo resolution.
You you will also be able to choose between high efficiency, using HEIF/HEVC, or most compatible, using JPEG/H.264. This does not directly affect the resolution, but does affect how large the photo and video files are.
Your phone's camera is limited by its hardware. Without opening the case and switching out several integrated circuits (and probably modifying the phone's firmware and operating system) you're not going to change that.
And you forget another thing that many cellphone camera enthousiasts overlook when talking about their hardware, and that's the optics.
After testing and searching paid and free apps for hours. I found a free app that does this. TrueVisage. Tested with iPhone 8, connected to my MacBook with USB-C cable and recording into Quicktime. It has a minimal interface that disappears after a few secs. Leaving beautiful, HQ, controls-free, watermark-free views of front or rear camera. Also has a handy ...
In addition to the answer offered by Nimesh, there's also the issue of how you compared the photos.
My assumption is that you were just checking them out on your iPhones, and this probably explains a lot of what you noticed because the display on an iPhone X is leaps and bounds above that used in an iPhone 7. More specifically:
the iPhone 7 incorporates a ...
There must have been a group of designers and engineers who created the camera and camera light system – they would surely know and have told others.
John Gruber received an email from one such former Apple engineer:
Security researchers at Johns Hopkins released a paper in 2013 revealing that the ...
Assuming both the iPhones are running the same latest version of iOS.
Is the most significant improvement hardware-based, or software-based?
Certainly iPhone X, being a generation newer than iPhone 7 has better hardware. If you compare the camera specs for both the iPhones this is what you get:
Essentially, the specs appear quite comparable. However, ...
I'm a little confused by what you mean by reality getting reversed. It may help if you provide pictures.
You may be changing the orientation of your device causing your camera to assume which way is up and down.
You may have a orientation lock on your device as a whole, that is affecting the camera
You might just be seeing your ...
You can access the list of permissions in System Preferences => Security & Privacy. Select the Privacy tab and then choose Camera in the list on the left. You can then checkmark the apps on the right that you want to have access to the camera.
If you have previously denied access to a program, it should appear here where you can checkmark it to allow ...
Camera+ 2, available in the app store for US$4, is a very powerful app I use instead of Apple's Camera app. It provides Manual Controls, RAW Capture and Editing, Depth Capture & Editing, versatile Shooting Modes, superb Photo Library integration, etc. If you are a seasoned SLR camera user or not, this app will help you get the most out of your iPhone's ...
The T2 chip is involved in running the camera and microphone to a major extent such that the old way to troubleshoot this need an update.
First, consider powering everything off and then disconnecting from power for 15 to 30 seconds to let the SMC and T2 do a complete cold boot. Portables have a more involved SMC reset but Mac Pro and iMac Pro are easy to ...
I was months looking for a solution and none of them worked for me. Apps simply didn't ask for permission. Then I remembered that I had disabled SIP(System Integrity Protection). Re-enabling does the job!
Check if SIP is disabled:
$ csrutil status
If you get System Integrity Protection status: disabled. We have to re-enable it.
Restart your Mac in ...
Starting with macOS Mojave, Apple has added new permissions to macOS that need to be granted before an application can use the Camera or Microphone. This affects all kind of calling software, and also affects web browsers that you might use for joining online meetings.
Security & Privacy in System Preferences
You can manage permissions for Camera and ...
You need to use tccutil to manage the privacy database -- this involves opening the Terminal and using the command line! Here's how to do it for QuickTime Player:
tccutil reset Camera com.apple.QuickTimePlayerX
tccutil reset Microphone com.apple.QuickTimePlayerX
You might need to reset Camera or Microphone permissions for other apps too....
In your about this Mac - choose your marketing name of your mac and then look it up in the manuals.
Most integrated cameras are 1080 and not 4k - so you will want to get a Logitech or DSLR camera for your mac if you care about higher resolution or better low light controls.
In Europe, every electronics product marketed to consumers must pass a battery of tests, one of them for the photobiological safety of any included light source according to IEC/EN 62471:2008, a slight revision of IEC 62471:2006. This is mandatory since September 2011, so almost any iPhone in existence must have qualified in order to be marketable.
To add to crgarridos' answer (not allowed to comment due to being new here), there's some nuance to the buggy behavior:
If you set up your machine and immediately disable SIP, before any device has requested access to the microphone or camera, then the requests do not work at all. The app says it's requesting access, and the System Preferences / Security / ...
The iPhone SE camera cannot take pictures at a 1150×1530 pixel resolution – so something is not adding up here. By default the back camera should produce images at 4032×3024 pixels.
I would suggest the following to ensure that you're grabbing a correct picture:
1) Use the built-in camera app
2) Ensure that no other apps are running at the same time (...
First, have you force quit the camera app and restarted your phone?
This could be one of two things both are prompted by the Camera app being unable to start the camera properly.
The first is that the physical camera isn't working some or all of the time, depending on the phone model it might be that one of the back cameras works but not the front. This ...
Without 3rd party apps: No, iOS doesn't allow you to choose the fps.
Yet, there are 3rd party apps that can give you much more control over photo and video settings. ProCam for example supports your requested feature.
There is - as far as I know - no option to do exactly what you want to achieve.
How the iPhone camera app makes a time-lapse and what it means for you:
I will quote from an apple community thread since this explanation is very good I think:
The iPhone's time lapse camera will condense to about 20-40 seconds regardless of how long you record your time-...
Photos and Camera are two different settings, access to the Camera doesn‘t automatically grant access to the Photo library as well. There should be a separate option to enable for Photos, e.g. for WhatsApp it looks like this:
You can try to tap on "Enable Library Access" (from the second screenshot). If this doesn't work I would proceed with reinstalling ...
This is a hardware issue - the most likely of which is that the camera has failed.
The error message, "There is no connected camera" means that macOS cannot see it physically. You can confirm this by looking at your System Report (from About This Mac) under both headings Camera and USB. If you don't see anything there, the camera has failed.
On recent hardware with the T2 chip and new macOS - the camera is controlled in firmware and Apple makes it clear when it's engaged.
Look for a product like MicroSnitch to let you know when recording is happening - whether it's a legitimate program or a covert one.
As long as you are on El Capitan or newer, ...
The size of the photos will depend on the camera and the size of the images. I have photos on my Mac that run from a few hundred kB to around 4 MB. My backup folder for my Photos has more than 2000 photos and takes up 2.5 GB but I have no movies. I would check the difference in the size of the cameras in the 2 phones. They are probably the same but I don't ...
Oversight is a product by Objective-See that performs low-level detection of when the camera is used. I posted a screenshot from a talk by Patrick Wardle that discusses this specifically, along with some sample code of how to invoke this via AVFoundation notifications. The portion most relevant to you starts at 43 minutes.
If this application you're ...
