It’s pretty evident that in low light conditions 1x>2x>.5x on the iPhone 11 Pro, but even that shot with the ultra wide lens is better than anything I could have gotten out of the XS
Few pictures from last night’s Black Keys concert at the Anthem. These are straight (not retouched) from the camera on the iPhone 11 Pro. I honestly don’t think I could have gotten better low light shots from my DSLR
It’s been three years since the Cardinals were in the playoffs and after that game it might take me that long to fall asleep tonight
Sundown on the Hill
I have a Sony RX100 sitting in my Amazon cart. This was finally the year that I was going to pull the trigger on what is widely considered to be the best point and shoot camera. I’m not looking to replace my DSLR, I’m just looking for something that I can take to the park to take shots of my two-year old. I’ve been doing this on my iPhone XS, but when I mix them with photos I shot on my DSLR, it’s painfully obvious what is and isn’t a camera phone photo.
But after an hour with the 11 Pro camera, while I’m not quite ready to remove my camelcamelcamel price alert, I’m at least going to move the RX100 out of my cart. An hour isn’t enough to know if the 11 Pro will kill my need for for a point and shoot, but it’s enough to know that I need more time to do decide that.
The ultra wide lens is by far the weakest, but I’m pleasantly surprised by how nice it is to have the wide field of view: if you were to ask me yesterday, I’d have wanted 4x telephoto lens. Now I don’t think I could live without it. People are going to love this lens. It was 100% the right call to add to the 11 (instead of the telephoto).
All the photos I shot today are straight from the camera. I did no touch ups. I’m excited to get these in pixelmator photo and see how much better I can make them. Every year Apple promises a better camera, but this is the first year that I feel like it may actually change the way I shoot photos.
Ultra wide struggles a bit with dynamic range
Able to get (most) of the Carnegie Library store in the frame without the pano shot this time
Ultra wide and wide
Hopping off at Chinatown
Dimly lit metro stations are showing up great
Light is pretty harsh this time of day, but I can already tell that smart HDR is way better than on the XS
Heading back to the Apple Store to pick up the new watch (and see if they have a clear case for Julie). Gonna try to take some photos on the 11 Pro on my way there and post here
For what it’s worth: the titanium Series 5 almost exactly matches the brushed metal on the link bracelet.
10:45am at Apple Carnegie Library. Trying to make the decision between the Stainless Steel and Titanium Series 5 Apple Watch. (You can tell by this photo, who hasn’t gotten their ultra wide lens, yet)
Ugh there was literally only one feature– ONE— that was going to get me to upgrade my Series 4 Apple Watch
Oooh yeah, Sean Baker! Loved the Florida Project and Tangerine is a must-watch Christmas movie every year
I’ve admittedly been out of the loop for the past few weeks, but it appears that rearranging/deleting icons in iOS 13 has taken a page from the macOS book: to get into ‘wiggle’ mode, you can pull an app out of its current space if you 3D touch while doing it
tfw you gotta finish that business deal, but it’s almost lunch
Neat article on four of DC’s oldest liquor stores, including my neighborhood store: Chat’s. One of these days, Burnie will cut me a deal on that Pappy van Winkle he keeps on the highest shelf in the store
Y’all gotta go to Joshua Tree
