First Impressions After 24 Hours:
Ah, the beautiful city of Vancouver — a mesmerizing mix of modern cityscape and lush nature. As an avid filmmaker and photography enthusiast, I decided to dive into the city's nooks and crannies armed with Apple's latest iPhone 15 devices. And fellow video-lovers, Apple might have outdone itself this time.
Upon unboxing, the first glance of these two beauties side by side is enough to set any tech lover's heart in overdrive. Their sleek designs and the promise of groundbreaking camera technology immediately piqued my curiosity.
The Pro Max boasts a new 120mm periscope lens. And as I meandered through Vancouver's bustling streets, this lens allowed me to capture the distant city's essence without sacrificing too much quality. Honestly, I still prefer a 2x or 3x equivalent, as that 5x is too much zoom needed for my iPhone needs.
All the phone’s standard cameras in low light were nearly impeccable, making capturing those neon lights and cityscapes with tricky coloring a breeze. And although Night Mode is reduced to the 12MP range, it still outperforms my iPhone 14 Pro with better RGB results and dynamic clarity.
The revamped Portrait Mode was a true surprise. Ever clicked a picture and later wished you'd focused on a different part of the shot? Or altered the aperture a tad? With the new Portrait Mode, you can. It allows you to change your focus point and aperture post-shot, granting ultimate control over images after you shoot them.
