Halide Mark II Camera App Introduces 'Neural Telephoto' Feature for Non Pro iPhone Users

The Halide Mark II camera app has been updated with a new 'Neural Telephoto' feature for non Pro iPhone users. The feature acts like a virtual telephoto lens, enhancing details in zoomed shots using machine learning.

Sharing some sample images on Twitter, co-founder Sebastiaan de With says, "I ended up testing our new Neural Telephoto feature by shooting with an iPhone SE for a while. I loved the shots I got out of it w/ native RAW and the extra reach of the virtual 2×."

Check out the full release notes for Halide 2.11 below...

What's New In This Version:
HALIDE 2.11: NEURAL TELEPHOTO

This update goes out to the regular, non Pro iPhone users who need a little extra detail in their shots. Why should the iPhone Pro have all the zoom-fun? We're excited to launch a feature we call "Neural Telephoto."

Neural Telephoto gives non-Pro iPhones that lack a physical telephoto lens a new power. Think of it as a virtual telephoto lens. Normally, when you zoom in on an image using software, you get blurry results, and diagonal lines look a bit jagged. With Neural Telephoto, we enhance details in zoomed shots by applying the same machine-learning system that powers our acclaimed macro mode — giving you a new, virtual 2× lens for free!


Obviously software can't beat a real telephoto lens on an iPhone Pro, but Neural Telephoto preserves details better than most software. We're excited to finally bring a feature to our non-Pro iPhone users, too. We think you all deserve it.

A note for the Pros: Neural Telephoto shots will be zoomed and enhanced using machine learning in HEIC and JPEG, but will capture an unedited, unzoomed full RAW file for you to adjust if you so desire. By default, Halide will shoot in RAW + JPEG mode, which will give you an un-altered RAW file along with a zoomed and enhanced JPEG file. We think it's the best of both worlds; no surprises or less-than-RAW output.

This update also brings small design enhancements and improvements throughout for all our users.

You can download Halide Mark II - Pro Camera from the App Store for free.
