REVIEW

Since a lot of you are into photography as well I got a couple of questions of what I think about the camera quality of the iPhone 11 Pro (especially with the launch of the iPhone 12 Pro ahead), so here’s a Mini Review, which turned out not so mini.
Because three cameras in a Smartphone?
I was intrigued as well.

PRODUCT RECOMMENDATION

You’ve probably all seen the cool almost zoomed in detail shots on Instagram and chances are high that they were taken with a Telephoto lense. It’s currently my most used iPhone camera setting as well, since 50mm (or higher) is also my preferred focal length for professional camera lenses as well.

The 2x optical zoom combined with a ƒ/2.0 aperture gives the images a real professional look and is perfect for high-quality detail shots. Which also works really well for Videos. It just has this unique look and feel to it and makes even the simplest thing appear special in a shot.

FOCAL LENGTH // dt. Brennweite

It’s a bit tricky to explain this without getting too technical. But the focal length indicates the distance (in milimetres, here 52mm) between the center and the sensor of the camera. Of course, this obviously only applies to lenses of professional cameras. These specifications of the iPhone lenses are therefore only a reference.

(very very) simply said: the higher the focal length, the closer the object you are photographing appears. That’s why professional lenses with focal lengths between 50mm & 80mm are often used for portraits.

With the three camera system this 28mm one is your ‚Standard‘ go-to lense. It also has the lowest aperture with ƒ/1.8 which adds great dimension to your shots and gives you an amazing depth of field.

For a professional-like depth of field effect of big DSLR cameras make sure to shoot in the Portrait mode.

 

What still impresses me most is the image quality in low light conditions or even darkness, because of the new Night Mode (in my opinion one of the biggest upgrades compared to the iPhone X).

APERTURE // dt. Blende

The aperture basically indicates the opening of a lens, so the light can enter the sensor in your camera. The smaller the value, the larger the lens is open and the more light hits the lens (and vice versa). This value among others controls the depth of field of a photo. Simply put, the smaller the aperture, the more ‚blurry‘ are the parts that aren’t in focus (the blurry background you all want 😉 An aperture of ƒ/1.8 is really impressive for a Smartphone camera and you get a lot of dimension to your shots because of it.

With the 13mm focal length camera you obviously get really ‚zoomed-out‘ pictures up to 4x more scene and because of this perfect for nature or scenic shots. Or you can get really creative with this camera mode.

My Tip: If you want to capture people with this camera, make sure you are at a bigger distance from the camera for the best effect otherwise you risk looking ’stretched‘ (which isn’t always bad ;)).

Compared to the iPhone X you can now use the Portrait Mode with the Telephoto Camera as well as the Wide camera. Which means you can easily get full body images with a subtle blurred out background. Imitating the depth of focus of professional cameras and I’m really impressed.

These are the kind of photos where you can hardly tell whether they were taken with a smartphone or a DSLR camera (see example on the left). And that means something.

improved Portrait mode (separating the subject from the background even better, advanced Bokeh & Depth Control)
creative controls let you adjust the background blur & light on faces
new LiDAR technology enables Night mode for Portraits

I‘m so deeply impressed with the iPhone 11 Pro Video quality and the image stabilization that I haven‘t even touched our camera for filming, since I definitely get the same high quality results with my phone and it’s so much easier to use.

 

You obviously don‘t get the depth of focus like with cameras that are designed for filming, but that‘s what my Vlogging camera messed up anyways (nothing was ever in focus when I needed it the most). Talking about Vlogging, the quality of the front camera is amazing as well and is a very helpful feature for the current times of video meetings.

HDR video recording in Dolby Vision (format used by film studios)
