Photos from the New iPhone X

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. 

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.

Purchasing the new iPhone as become a yearly event/holiday for me.  When I first purchased the original iPhone many years ago I never envisioned that I would be using it for photography.  The camera in the first device was mediocore at best.  The cameras on mobile devices just keep getting better and better.  There's also now a plethora of editing and processing apps to choose from.  It's amazing how we can now use mobile devices as our main camera, photo processor and photo sharing utility.
