Apple iPhone Xs Camera Review

Share

We’re delighted to republish our good friend, Austin Mann’s camera review of the Apple iPhone Xs today. He took a trip to Zanzibar, the images are gorgeous. In this review, Mann gives his first impressions, his thoughts on the new Image Signal Processor (ISP), vertical panoramas in the iPhone Xs as compared to the iPhone X, perks and perils of computational photography, the updated Portrait Mode and interesting discoveries with the app, Halide’s new technical readout information. Don’t miss this! (foreword by Joanne Carter).

If you prefer to read the original article on Mann’s own website, just go here.

Far and away the most significant camera update in the iPhone Xs is its new Smart HDR capabilities. Powered by the A12 Bionic chip, in the picture above the iPhone Xs is able to capture  the dark shadows of the rock while maintaining strong detail in the sunlit clouds.

I’ve never worked with a camera that can balance light like this—not even close.

See this photo below of the sailboat backlit by the sun. With a traditional camera, we’d either lose total detail in the shadows and maintain the highlights of the sky or we’d blow out the highlights in the sky and maintain detail in the shadows of the boat. Previously we couldn’t capture both in one frame (and merging multiple exposures in a fast moving scene like this wouldn’t work, either).

We’re delighted to recommend PhoneSoap again here at TheAppWhisperer. We’re very particular about the products we do recommend to our readers and only do so, if we have tried and tested them ourselves, and naturally been pleased with the results. I’ve got to tell you that this product PhoneSoap is phenomenal, particularly if you have an aversion to germs, as I do. It kills 99.9% of germs, even with the case on, leave it on and it will clean it too.  There’s a reason they sell this product in hospitals and the reason is it’s trusted by physicans to clean their equipment, thoroughly.

We can’t help touching dirty things – handrails, money, gym equipment, and the list goes on. The problem is when we touch our phones we then pass the bacteria from our hands to our devices. It’s easy to wash our hands, but we don’t wash our phones, which is why the average smartphone shows 18x more bacteria than a public restroom/toilet. The bacteria on our devices thrive and can make us sick.

PhoneSoap claim the The average phone is crawling with 18 times more bacteria than a public restroom. That means you’re just as likely to get sick from your phone as from the handles in the bathroom. Your phone breeds more bacteria, too. Your phone’s battery keeps it warm, and when it’s stored in warm, dark places like your pocket or purse, the bacteria multiply’ – yuck!

In the PhoneSoap’s controlled environment, UV-C light effectively and safely sanitises your cell phone, as well as anything else that fits inside your PhoneSoap like remotes, keys, tablets, and more.

Mobile Photography – OnePlus 6: The Alternative Flagship – SmartPhone Review – DxOMark with Kevin Carter

Share

Some of you may know, many of you do not know, my husband Kevin Carter is a photographic technical expert and journalist. He works at an extremely high level, imparting his knowledge and never compromising his journalistic integrity.

As well as that, he’s an editor for DxOMark and he’s just completed his latest review which includes an in-depth analysis of the OnePlus 6 smartphone camera. Its resulted in an overall score of 96 points. The OnePlus 6 was released in late May and it is the latest dual camera-equipped smartphone from Chinese brand OnePlus. It is a premium model featuring a large 6.28-in AMOLED edge-to-edge display and powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset.

The OnePlus 6’s main camera has a 16MP 1/2.6”-type sensor that is combined with a stabilised f/1.7 lens. The secondary camera is used for applying depth-of-field effects and an improved digital zoom. While it has a slightly higher-resolution 20MP sensor, it has the same f/1.7-aperture lens as the main camera (but not stabilisation).

With a total Photo score of 100 points, the OnePlus 6 achieves one of the better scores for still images in DxOMark’s testing to date. The overall Photo score is calculated from sub-scores in tests that examine different aspects of its performance under different lighting conditions.

Mobile Photography – Xiaomi Mi 8: Challenging the Best – SmartPhone Review – DxOMark with Kevin Carter

Share

Some of you may know, many of you do not know, my husband Kevin Carter is a photographic technical expert and journalist. He works at high level imparting his knowledge, never compromising his journalistic objectivity, it’s one of the many things we share (Sociologist Michael Schudson suggests that “the belief in objectivity is a faith in ‘facts,’ a distrust in ‘values,’ and a commitment to their segregation”).

As well as that, he’s an editor for DxOMark and he’s just completed his latest report which includes an in-depth analysis of the Xiaomi Mi 8 smartphone camera. Its resulted in an overall score of 99 points, the Mi 8 offers some improvements in certain areas over Mi MIX 2S launched earlier this year, placing it shoulder-to-shoulder with some of the best smartphone cameras that they have tested.

Powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset, it comes with camera hardware specifications that are identical to the Mi Mix 2S. The rear-facing camera module features twin 12Mp cameras, one a wide-angle with a 1/2.55-inch size sensor and 1.4µm pixels and an f/1.8-aperture lens, and the other a short “tele” with a slightly ‘slower’ f2.4 aperture.

Its Photo sub-score of 105 is among the best that they’ve rated, thanks to consistently good performance in all lighting conditions, super-fast and accurate autofocus, as well as bold color rendition. It strikes a nice balance between noise and texture, too, and generates pretty decent low-light results.
