Apple iPhone SE first official camera test images: new 12MP iSight shooter can also record 4K video

The new Apple iPhone SE comes with a new 12-megapixel iSight camera, a great upgrade over the 8-megapixel shooter on the iPhone 5s.
While we don't know whether it's the exact same camera as in the iPhone 6s, chances are it is: it features the same resolution, the same Focus Pixel fast-focus tech, a true tone flash, new image signal processor and panoramas of up to 63MP.
12MP iSight camera with Focus Pixels and 4K videoSo what is capable of? Apple has posted some official camera test samples from the 12-megapixel iSight camera on the iPhone SE and they look great: the typical for iPhones slightly overblown colors that look very appealing and those vivid blue skies.
The new iPhone SE will also be able to record 4K videos and you will be able to edit them in iMovie. We don't know whether it has optical stabilization, but given that this is a premium feature reserved only for the iPhone 6s Plus, chances are that it is not present on the SE. We will be looking forward to testing the camera on the new iPhone SE in further detail soon, but so far, it's shaping up to give rivals in that price segment quite the run for their money.

I looks like it was edited and artificially enhanced.

And the S7 the current phone with the best camera doesn't have over saturated photos right?

4K video shooting doesn't matter when it doesn't have 4k OIS support like most 4k capable phones on the market.

Yeah you are right Grandpa, I know you need to squint your old eyes on small screens so go and buy a big ass phone for you. As for us we can see quite clearly on a 4 inch device because we aren't visually impaired like you.

Hey, it remember when first iPhone came out - same people just like you were screaming "screen too large". It was litterally the biggest touch screen phone to date. And that was at 3.5". I still have my 5s and the screen is sharp, and it runs great. This "special edition" will kill in benchmarks. I believe this SE is for specific market, just like the iPad pro (the big one). It's not designed to outsell and conquire - but provide a tool for those that need/want something specific.
