American photographer Austin Mann tested the camera of the new iPhone 12 Pro in a series of photographs in Glacier National Park. The shooting was carried out in various modes, from bright sun to night conditions. According to Mann, he was pleased with the result.
In the new generation of smartphones, Apple has upgraded the wide-angle lens (26 mm), the aperture of which is now f / 1.6 instead of f / 1.8. This means that it now performs much better in low light. Below is a photo taken with a 30-second exposure on a tripod with no visible light at all. Mann noted that when filming, blue or green was not visible to the naked eye.
Here are some more Night Mode photos with the updated wide-angle lens:
In addition to the low light performance, the photographer was also interested in the sharpness and detail throughout the frame. After taking a few frames, he came to the conclusion that these figures roughly correspond to the iPhone 11 Pro.
Ultra wide night mode
Mann noted the availability of night mode for an ultra wide angle lens. He reports that low-light performance with this lens has improved dramatically. The photographer took a few shots in a blizzard just before sunrise.
Smart HDR 3
This year, the Smart RVC mode received several important improvements. According to the photographer, the main goal of this technology is to capture what the eye saw, and it looks like the iPhone 12 Pro’s camera does it. Pay attention to the details in the bright snow-capped peaks in the distance.
Mann draws attention to the shot that was taken with a wide-angle lens, see how the pitfalls in the foreground are correctly exposed.
Night mode portrait
The photographer took this picture about 45 minutes after sunset, it was very cloudy and little light. This is a portrait mode with a 3 second exposure. To achieve this result, Mann used the light from the screen of the iPhone 11 Pro, which he held in his other hand.
Austin also noted the work of the LiDAR sensor, which worked great in this case.
The photographer separately praised the exposure lock. Now it does not return to automatic mode every time a new picture is taken. This setting is saved for when switching between lenses and after locking the iPhone.
In addition to all of the above, Austin Mann in his review noted the possibility of interval shooting in night mode, priority of fast shooting, MagSafe charging and the speed of 5G connection for transferring a large number of shots.
The photographer also made a small wish list. He would like to see more detailed information in the EXIF data in the iPhone camera – this allows him to see what is happening with the exposure and determine the limits of the possibilities; an option to show the distance to the subject using LiDAR and a quick reset of exposure settings.
