Main Camera Specs
The iPhone 11 Pro Max features a triple camera system with a 12 MP wide lens, a 12 MP telephoto lens, and a 12 MP ultrawide lens. The aperture ranges from f/1.8 to f/2.4, and the camera also comes equipped with PDAF (phase detection autofocus) and OIS (optical image stabilization).
On the other hand, the iPhone 14 Pro Max boasts a more advanced triple camera setup with a 48 MP wide lens, a 12 MP telephoto lens with 3x optical zoom, and a 12 MP ultrawide lens. The wide lens has an aperture of f/1.8, and the camera uses sensor-shift OIS for better image stabilization.
The most significant difference between the two models is the wide lens. The iPhone 14 Pro Max’s 48 MP sensor is a significant upgrade from the 12 MP sensor found in the iPhone 11 Pro Max. The larger sensor can capture more details and produce higher-quality images, especially in low-light settings.
Another significant difference is the addition of a LiDAR scanner on the iPhone 14 Pro Max, which helps improve autofocus and depth perception in photos and videos.
Main Camera Features
Both phones come with HDR (high dynamic range) and dual-tone flash capabilities, allowing for better image and color quality. However, the iPhone 14 Pro Max adds 10-bit HDR and Dolby Vision HDR support, which can produce more vibrant and lifelike colors.
Both phones can record 4K videos up to 60fps, but the iPhone 14 Pro Max adds ProRes and cinematic mode options, providing more flexibility in video production.
Selfie Camera Specs
The iPhone 11 Pro Max has a dual-camera system with a 12 MP wide lens and a ToF (time-of-flight) 3D camera for depth sensing. The iPhone 14 Pro Max, on the other hand, features a single 12 MP wide lens with PDAF and OIS, as well as a SL 3D sensor for depth and biometric sensing.
Selfie Camera Features
Both phones have HDR capabilities for better image quality, but the iPhone 14 Pro Max adds cinematic mode for selfie videos.
Selfie Camera Video
Both phones can shoot 4K videos up to 60fps, but the iPhone 14 Pro Max has added gyro-EIS (electronic image stabilization) for smoother video capture.
Overall, the iPhone 14 Pro Max has significant upgrades in terms of camera specs and features compared to the iPhone 11 Pro Max. The larger sensor, LiDAR scanner, and 10-bit HDR support are notable improvements that can help produce better images and videos. However, the iPhone 11 Pro Max is still a capable device that can capture stunning photos and videos, making it a more affordable option for those who don’t need the latest and greatest in camera technology.
