In order to show the camera prowess of its recently released iPhone XS that sports a dual rear camera setup, Apple shared some pictures taken by users in Germany, Myanmar, France, and African Savannah on its website. The pictures were shared as a part of the “Shot on iPhone” campaign which started when Apple realized that iPhone pictures are at par with those taken from professional cameras.
The new iPhone XS has a dual camera system on the back that is similar to that see on the iPhone X, but its larger sensor offers improved light sensitivity. Moreover, the Neural Engine in the new A12 Bionic chipset and advanced image processor further enhance the pictures.
Camera Game Strong
The photographs that Apple shared show the power of the Portrait Mode and the new Depth Control. Portrait Mode lets photographers blur the background while Depth Control allows you to adjust the depth of field for pictures for a sophisticated bokeh effect. A forthcoming update will bring the Depth Control feature to real-time preview, enabling photographers to change the amount of blur before taking a shot. This update might arrive with the iOS 12.1.
Apart from Depth Control, the iPhone XS camera also features “Smart” HDR, which makes use of the enhanced ISP, faster sensors, and advanced algorithms to add more details to the photographs. The Portrait Mode pictures with Depth Control taken on the iPhone XS can feature a range of subjects, including flowers, pets, and foods because two sensors can gather more depth information. On the other hand, the Portrait Mode images taken from the iPhone XR must include a human subject.
Shot On iPhone
Users shared the pictures taken from their new iPhone XS on Twitter and Instagram using the hashtag #ShotoniPhone. Here are some of the photos that Apple shared in its blog post:
