One of the notable features of the iPhone X camera is the quad-LED dual-tone flash, which provides better color accuracy and brightness compared to traditional LED flash. The camera also supports HDR (high dynamic range) for both photo and panorama modes, allowing for better contrast and color accuracy in difficult lighting conditions.
In terms of video recording, the iPhone X camera is capable of shooting 4K video at 24/30/60fps and 1080p video at 30/60/120/240fps, with stereo sound recording and video stabilization available.
On the front, the iPhone X has a 7MP selfie camera with an f/2.2 aperture and 32mm focal length, as well as a depth/biometrics sensor for Face ID. The front camera supports HDR and can record 1080p video at 30fps.
Overall, the iPhone X camera system offers impressive image and video quality, particularly in low-light conditions thanks to the OIS and quad-LED flash. However, some users may find the lack of a dedicated wide-angle lens limiting, and the camera app interface can be a bit cluttered.
