Everything You Need To Know about iPhone SE (2022)’s camera

The all-new iPhone SE is the most affordable iPhone on the market, perfect for anyone looking to get into the world of iPhones.

What does this mean? The features of this iPhone SE will be simpler than other, more advanced iPhones, such as the iPhone 11, iPhone 12, or iPhone 13. The all-new iPhone SE comes with a refreshed camera which changes the iPhone SE's camera specs from previous models.

  • The iPhone SE has a 12 megapixel rear camera with f/1.8 focal aperture
  • The iPhone SE has a 7 megapixel front-facing camera with f/2.2 focal aperture

These cameras on the iPhone SE are technically equal to those found on the iPhone 7 and iPhone 8. So what is different in this third-generation iPhone SE? Above all, image processing – thanks to the A15 chip.

A15 chip Processor changes the iPhone SE's camera

Thanks to the iPhone SE's powerful processor, the photos and videos you take will look like they have been taken on a superior model. The A15 chip used in the iPhone SE can be found in the iPhone 13 Pro!
This means that Apple's most powerful chip will carry out white balance, colour grading, or noise reduction in shots taken at night.

The new iPhone SE backed with the A15 Processor Chip brings new camera modes, such as:

The iPhone SE camera features Smart HDR 4 and Deep Fusion

These names are probably all foreign to you, but don't worry! These features are unique to the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro range.

  • Smart HDR 4 automatically adjusts contrast, lighting, and skin tones to ensure that they are always balanced and completely natural.
  • Deep Fusion analyses different exposures of a photo pixel by pixel to capture every last detail of textures, patterns, and nuances.

Create your own photographic style on the iPhone SE camera

Another feature of the iPhone SE, made possible thanks to the A15 chip, is the option to create photographic styles. And what are these styles? They act as smart filters. It doesn't matter whether you choose a warm or cool filter. The iPhone SE will apply all the necessary adjustments to each area of the image, without altering skin tones or sky colour. Say goodbye to those orange faces!
