During the announcement of the new-gen iPhone, the Apple representatives traditionally paid much attention to the photographic capabilities of the newcomer. However, as you know, real photos can differ significantly from images prepared for the presentation. Austin Mann, a traveler and photographer, often uses an Apple smartphone of the latest model as his traveling camera. The iPhone XS is not an exception, and Mann has published a bunch of photos from the new smartphone in his blog.
The iPhone XS is equipped with a dual camera, which has a resolution of 12 megapixels. The first module has a wide-angle lens and f/1.8 aperture. The second camera (f/2.4 aperture) ensures optical image stabilization.
In tandem with Neural Engine, the new image processor can perform complex tasks, visually bringing the results closer to what you obtain using expensive SLR cameras. Also, the iPhone XS boasts of Smart HDR, which allows the user to work with highlights and shadows in photographs.
The smartphone’s portrait mode is supplemented with the depth control feature that adjusts the bokeh effect after the photo is taken. It’s available for both the main and front cameras of the gadgets.
The main camera takes good pictures even in low light conditions. Thanks to Smart HDR and other enhancements, you always get high-quality images.
Of course, it’s impossible to draw the final conclusions regarding the photo capabilities of the iPhone XS on the basis of just one photo shoot. However, more photographic materials will be available soon along with the DxOMark assessments, and potential buyers will get a clear idea of the camera quality in Apple’s new flagship.
