“I’m here working on a couple of art commissions and leading a private workshop and I brought the new iPad Pro along to better understand how it can integrate into the mobile photographer workflow. How does it work to ingest, backup, edit, and share images?

The art installation I’m working on is extremely large format (up to 50 ft. wide), so I’m shooting most of this project with the Hasselblad H6D-100c (a 100-megapixel beast). Needless to say, it’s been a great camera to test the speed of this new iPad Pro”.

This is the biggest update we have ever seen to the iPad and it’s beyond exciting! Apple today introduced the new iPad Pro with all-screen design and next-generation performance, marking the biggest change to iPad ever.

A second-generation Apple Pencil magnetically attaches to iPad Pro and wirelessly charges at the same time. A new touch sensor built onto Apple Pencil detects taps, introducing an entirely new way to interact within apps. The new Smart Keyboard Folio features a streamlined design that’s adjustable for added versatility. The new iPad Pro, Apple Pencil and Smart Keyboard Folio are available to order starting today and in stores starting Wednesday, November 7.

“The new iPad Pro is a huge step forward for powerful, creative, mobile computing; it has an all-new thinner design, speeds through projects with the super-fast A12X Bionic chip and unlocks with a glance using Face ID in any orientation — while you’re sitting or standing, with iPad Pro on your desk or lap, with the new Smart Keyboard Folio and new Apple Pencil,” said Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing. “There has never been a mobile device anything like the new iPad Pro; it has a gorgeous edge-to-edge Liquid Retina display that curves into the corners, breakthrough performance that outperforms most laptops, Face ID, support for the new Smart Keyboard Folio and new Apple Pencil, advanced new cameras and sensors for the best AR experiences ever in any device, a high-speed USB-C connector, louder speakers, faster wireless and more, all packed into a thinner device that has all-day battery life and is 25 percent smaller in volume.”

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).
