The iPhone SE (2022) has the body of an iPhone 8 with the tough glass and A15 Bionic chip of the iPhone 13. The A15 chip and single 12-megapixel rear camera make the new SE capable of taking superb Pictures. Looked.

I like how the SE captured the blue in the sky. It’s not exaggerated.

It’s interesting how the new iPhone SE keeps shadows relatively dark in photos.

In good lighting, the SE can capture accurate skin tones.

In this photo taken just after sunset, you can see how the SE has Deep Fusion processing to help brighten photos in medium light without losing detail.

In this photo of the Women’s Building in San Francisco, the SE did a good job capturing the colors and details.

With a 7-megapixel front camera and the A15 chip, the SE can take Portrait mode selfies.

The SE doesn’t have a night mode, but it still did a decent job capturing this shot in a dark bar.

The SE can take decent backlit photos while still getting good skin tones.

The SE’s lens is the equivalent of a 28mm lens on a full-frame camera. It’s not as wide as the main iPhone 13 series cameras, which have a 26-millimeter-equivalent lens.

Although the dynamic range of the SE is good, I still think the iPhone 12 and 13 series have better dynamic range.

This was taken just after sunset. There is a bit of softness in the photo thanks to the noise reduction.

Autofocus on the SE is good. He was able to develop a rapidly moving bubble.

One of the biggest drawbacks of the SE’s camera is the zoom. In this photo, I zoomed in all the way and the results weren’t great.
