So I've tested the Iphone 12 Pro and the Iphone 12. It's probably the lidar sensor? But the 12 pro won't autofocus no matter what, even when I tap the screen manually, it stays blurry.
The First clear picture is from my Iphone 7+ and the second blurry one is from a 12 pro taken at the same height.
I didn't notice this issue before, seems weird. I can do some more tests with a regular 12 tomorrow and post more results.
Wide / ultra wide cameras are the same in 12 and 12 Pro.What is the minimum focus distance for Lidar? At least the face id had a minimum distance. If Lidar is always used for focusing it might explain why there are issues with focusing on Pro models. Though we have to remember that both of the phones also have a different camera modules.
Here is another video showing the issue. I believe the easiest way to replicate this is by moving away and near some texts. Comparing my old iPhone 11 pro with 12 pro side by side, you can easily tell iPhone 12 pro struggles to focus as you move closer to an object. I tried this with both the default camera app and ProCam, so it's not an issue with the stock app itself.
The issue is that the 12 Pro won't focus at the same distances that the 11 Pro / 12 / 7 would quite happily focus at. Actually the MFD for the iPhone camera is about 8-10cm (i.e. a few inches).it’s called minimum focusing distance, and every lens Has it. The iPhone doesn’t have macro capabilities and is not going to focus on something a few inches in front of it. Are people This clueless?
C´mon.it’s called minimum focusing distance, and every lens Has it. The iPhone doesn’t have macro capabilities and is not going to focus on something a few inches in front of it. Are people This clueless?
My 11Pro Max won’t focus at objects up close like the videos posted here. I just did it and can post it. No iPhone can focus on an object 2 inches in front of it. Minimum focusing distance.C´mon.
Then tell us why the regular 12 focuses on the same distance the 12 pro does not focus right... The lenses which are used are the same in both phones.
OK, you're either being deliberately obtuse or you're not reading anything we're writing, or both, so I'm not going to try to explain it to you any further. Have a good day.Here is my 11 Pro Max not focusing on close up objects either. None of them do, it’s called minimum focusing distance and my $2k mirrorless camera with $1800 lens won’t do it either. It’s physics.
Garbage reply and "test". There's certainly a problem with iPhone 12 Pro focusing
Why hasn’t it come up in any of the dozens of iPhone 12 pro camera test online? It’s people who don’t know what they are doing and don’t understand minimum focusing distance who are having issues.Garbage reply and "test". There's certainly a problem with iPhone 12 Pro focusing
