Quite pleased with this iPhone shot that I got whilst at Bristol Zoo this week. This is just beyond 2x zoom on the XS. This means it has a little digital but mostly all optical zoom using the second lens. Little grainy when you zoom right in but a very satisfying shot and for once I think I framed it well.
Not the sharpest image but has the lighting perfect as how I remember it.
I’ve been wanting a moment for a while, think I’m jumping in on this deal.
Pretty impressed with the iPhone XS already but taking it out on Halloween really showed the improvements over the X in low light to me.
You’ll still need to hold it super steady but this shot handheld in darkness with a small light impressed me. I’m still glad I traded my X for the XS for the camera alone.
When iPhone 6S launched we got Live Photo’s but there was a school of thought that it had an affect on the quality of the resulting image. Since this is always turned it off to make sure I had the best quality possible. This was more evident in low light where the iPhone increases the shutter speed to get a Live Photo. I just left it off all of the time.
But in 2018 is this still the case?
