The iPhone X boasts of dual 12-megapixel cameras on the rear side, making it the smallest iPhone yet to have two sensors. The primary camera still has an f/1.8 aperture which is the same on other 2017 iPhones.
However, the telephoto lens has received an upgrade.
In the past, the iPhone has not quite met the standard of other phones in its league when it came to low-light photos. However, Apple has corrected this by widening the camera aperture from f/2.8 to f/2.4, making it a much better performer in poor lighting.
Apple says that its sensor has been completely rebuilt, making it faster and larger and incorporating a new Image Signal Processor (ISP) for better colours and textures.
Photos taken with the phone’s primary camera are only comparable to the Google Pixel 2 and Huawei’s best P20 PRO.
The iPhone X produces excellent photos, with pictures being more saturated compared to previous versions, making it excellent for landscape shots, giving a fantastic feeling of depth.
What Apple could work on with their next release is the range of lighting options which add special effects to photos. Of the ones present, ‘Contour light’ is best as it adds minor flecks of light around the cheekbone area and the eyes.
However, the two ‘Stage light’ options are just as they have been described – ‘beta’.
What these do is they cut out the figure and replace the background with a black canvas. In terms of ideas, this was excellent, but when it comes to actual execution, the feature is amateurish.
The actual cut-out often is inaccurate, and you can see a definite disconnect between where the shadows start and the colour finishes.
I started the road of photography, repairing some film cameras. But soon I've realised that I need some knowledge on how the photos are formed inside the camera. This road is tougher than I thought, but life is always a learning experience, and I am hoping that you could join me in this wonderful world of photography.
