My old iPhone was not able to update to the newer software updates so I got a new iPhone 11 Pro. I was interested in seeing how the new camera would stand up for image quality. The new camera seems to work well to a point, but skies or solid color areas seem to have a slight darker center area in wide angle mode. But that is somewhat easy to change or fix in Photoshop. Some of the extreme wide angle shots also have a weird distortion, but again somewhat fixable. The file size seems to be also good for uprezzing (to a point) for larger printing. Overall I am quite happy with the performance. At the wide end the lens is only 1.5mm, but in full frame camera equivalent field of view is 13mm. So that is why you are seeing distortions that need some work in Photoshop. I also had to try shooting images for assembling for panoramas in Photoshop. That seemed to work well also. You just have to overlap more than usual. It has a 2X optical zoom, but up to 10X digital zoom. You probably would not want to print the digital zoom images too large, but handy for documentation or for the web.
Great shots, Reed, that is a stunning tree!
Thanks Donna! I usually carry 2 cameras, one with a long lens and a smaller m43 body with a wide to short tel zoom. But after a while it is a pain to carry both. So the iPhone sort of fills in when I want less to carry. Plus the files are not bad. I can even open them in Adobe Camera Raw and get more out of them plus uprez zing them before opening. I was amazed at how small the lenses are! 1.3mm to 4.6mm or so Adobe Camera Raw says.
iPhone is working wonderfully for you! I know what you mean about carrying two cameras, I do that as well. Yes, they do get heavy after a while. 🙂
A flawless day!
Yes! The leaves are finally turning Very colorful here. We were thinking It would be a dull Autumn.
