I admit it. I'm a huge Apple fanboy. I have loved Apple's products ever since I purchased an iPod many years ago. I subsequently purchased the first iPhone and have purchased the new iPhone every year since. It's become a yearly holiday for me; "iPhone Day." I'm not just an Apple Fanboy. I happen to also be a huge fan of all technology. Although Apple is my favorite I actually own the Samsung Galaxy S8+ as well which I love. I will spare you the details on my love for all gadgets and get on with my thoughts of the new iPhone X's camera.
Each year Apple releases a new iPhone with an improved camera and this year was no exception. Like previous iPhone Plus models the X features dual real cameras. However, the X features a zoom lens that includes image stabilization and handles low light shots better. The wide angle lens features an f/1.8 aperture while the telephoto lens features an f/2.4 aperture.
Apple has also added new Portrait Lighting modes in iOS for the X as well as the iPhone 8 models. These modes have been extremely fun to shoot with. The front facing camera now features portrait mode and utilizes the Portrait Lighting modes as well. I gave this a test drive with the self-portrait below.
As with other iPhones the camera is an absolute joy to use. The quality of the photos are very good and it's always with me. A common saying in photography is that the best camera is the one you have with you. Below are some more shots using the camera on the iPhone X.
