Visible to anyone in the world

If there is anything stable in our essentially dynamic world, it’s how people react to the new iPhones. Every time, a huge number of under-bloggers and reviewers fumble works of art from Apple, accuse of being secondary, lagging behind the market, but despite all this, the new iPhones are being swept away like hot cakes.

The apple device maker has expanded its line of mobile phones in recent years and in September 2019, two brothers, the iPhone 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max, appeared, the love of my life.

Apple iPhone 11 Pro Max wants to be constantly worn without a case, even though it is quite expensive for a smartphone (the price starts at $ 1360).

But today our article will be devoted not to the cost of this phone, although this is also a rather important question, but to what exactly distinguishes the iPhone 11 Pro Max from all its predecessors, but about its camera!

A few words about the sensational camera

The camera has become the main focus of the iPhone upgrade program. If you have ever seen how the iPhone 11 Pro Max looks, then you will surely notice what decorates the back of this phone. Yes, this iPhone has three rear cameras: wide-angle, ultra-wide-angle, and telephoto. This is just a godsend for photography lovers! In addition, as in the simple iPhone 11, there is a night mode that wins its users over and over again.

To the pair of a wide-angle lens with an equivalent focal length of 26 mm and a telephoto lens, which has a focal length equivalent to 52 mm, an ultra-wide-angle lens with an equivalent focal length of 13 mm was added. The viewing angle is very wide, which is really impressive.  If we start talking about the technical side of this smartphone, then we can highlight the fact that the wide-angle camera consists of six lenses. Shoots at 12 megapixels with a pixel size of 1.4 micrometers. Focal length - 26 mm, aperture ƒ / 1.8.

Night mode


Night Mode is a feature of the iOS 13 Camera app for the full iPhone 11 lineup that automatically turns on in low light or complete darkness. Of course, night mode only works on a wide-angle camera, but the results are impressive.

Just imagine that at night you get a natural, clear, rich color photo that you can take yourself in a matter of seconds without any photoshop.

As we said, night mode turns on automatically in low light conditions. At the time of shooting, the camera analyzes the visibility and determines how many frames must be captured to create a good image, then captures a series of frames with different exposures in the buffer for a certain period of time, sometimes this process can take up to 30 seconds, but on average it takes about up to 5 seconds. Then the artificial intelligence analyzes each frame in real time, aligns them relative to each other based on the gyroscope data, adjusts the tonality and color, eliminates noise, enhances the details and combines them into a complete picture, which you and I can only enjoy.

Yes, perhaps many are saddened by the fact that it is impossible to get a full-fledged "night" picture on previous iPhone models. Only thanks to the latest wide-angle camera sensor has the night mode reached the proper level and now fully lives up to its name in iPhone 11 Pro Max.

Apple never tires of showing this in its marketing materials - and it looks powerful every time.



The front camera of the iPhone 11 Pro Max is now capable of shooting slow motion video, and Apple is positioning this as a new feature called Slofy. This novelty has amazed many selfie lovers and, indeed, the results of its work are very impressive.

Another interesting feature of the front camera is related to the fact that the angle of view of the front camera changes slightly when the position of the smartphone is changed. Vertically, it becomes a little narrower, horizontally - a little wider. This can be relevant for shooting group selfies, and it is also good that during this shooting a little surrounding space gets into the frame - it looks quite natural and straight juicy.

However, the very ability to shoot video with a high frame rate on the front camera can be useful as well as a different angle of view.

Despite all the nuances that exist, the iPhone still remains a pleasant and functional device that everyone wants. So the Apple smartphone, which has long been familiar to everyone, gets really better every time, the update can be called very good and clearly worth attention.
