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.  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.
