    • Excited for the next video! I started out editing in VSCO and Snapseed, but nowadays I use Lightroom. It gives me pretty much all the professional tools I need, and the sync of presets between devices is the best feature of them all. When shooting both a lot with iPhone and DSLR/Mirrorless, I think Lr is the best. Pixelmator Photo for iPad is a new app I’m interested in checking out though. For quick retouching on iPhone/iPad I use TouchRetouch, simple Ps alternative. Facetune is also nice to have, but don’t overdo it! Light Distortions is also a nice app to have in your arsenal for flares, fog, snow, etc. So is Focos, which enhances portrait mode editing in post. And of course Halide for more advanced shooting, I mostly shoot in the default Camera app though. If you’re tired of iCloud for Photos, Google Photos is great for storage. Free, unlimited space and superior search tools (places, faces, objects, etc) - privacy is of course the only problem.

  • I love my new new iPhone 12 but the camera is terrible. I might use it for work, such as sending my manager a picture of an issue, but never, ever for photography. I took one picture when I was out in the woods doing nature photography and it looked awful. I kept the picture to show people how bad it was.

    GEORGE TVGEORGE TV9 dagar sedan
  • Great review, it seems like the iPhone 12 still suffers from the light ghosting/green dots issue the iPhone 11 had. This is apparent in a few spots throughout your video - at 11m 20s there's a good example if you look at the sky the green Dot reflection is very prominent and distracting. I've noticed this on my own iPhone 12 and I'm quite disappointed. Do you think Apples latest camera lenses are/have been defective? Or maybe Apple could have done something to prevent this issue?

  • What about that ugly reflection lens flare kind of thing (especially noticeable when there’s a light source facing the lenses) caused by the glass protecting the lenses since the Iphone 11 ? (Actually noticeable in your shots at 2:11 ) Big youtubers never mentioned it so far it’s weird... For me it was a deal-breaker...

  • I'd already be happy with the iPhone 12. There's is hardly much upgraded features on the pro model, that doesn't really justify the USD120 difference. I already have my sony camera for my photography needs, and the camera feature on both 12 models are pretty much equivalent. I also tend to reconstruct my devices every 2 years, so they'll be a better device by then.

  • I hate how apple just doesn't support it's older flagships when it comes to camera software. Like how hard is it to offer Nightmode to all cameras, or just any Night mode to the X, Xs, SE or even the 11!? Google's commitment with their feature drops on the Pixel Line is still top value for evryday photography enthusiasts. The 300 buck 3a supports Nightime portraits and all flagship features that have been rolled out to the Pixel 5! Like seriously apple needs to own up to the price tag and actually support old devices other than just rolling out lip service of iOS updates.

    D KD K22 dagar sedan
    • @Samuel McNeill The support you speak of is the platform upgrades, which is great.. but apple should start putting the money where the mouth is.. and make actual usability improvements available. I'm not a big Google fan either, they have their own shenanigans, but the one thing I absolutely love about Google is device commitment when it comes to camera. What the pixel 5 has even the 2XL can do vide software, maybe not as good but still making the option available.

      D KD K21 dag sedan
    • @Samuel McNeillDon't believe that BS, it was very much possible, they frustratingly enough put a software lock in place... Like they did with the XR not getting portrait mode for Pets & Non human subjects. Making more money 101. In my personal experience a friend had purchased the 11 Pro Max just a couple of months back coz his phone broke, guess what happens they release nightmode on Ultrawide & selfie for all 12 models but don't make it available for their existing Premium Flagship! 🤷🏽‍♂️ XS Max had a similar story.

      D KD K21 dag sedan
    • iPhone supports older phones better then any other company. And it's not necessarily possible to bring night mode to every phone.

  • You just earned a sub! Question, my iPhone XR camera is very blurry and my parents iphone 7 can shoot sharper images than mine. Also, the HDR on my Xr is not as good. Would an upgrade to the standard iphone 12 or pro improve camera quality? Cause im a photogropher

    • @Samuel McNeill I read a lot of reviews Not all of them are written by Apple fans I suggest the same to you The video can't magically make Apple's hardware limitations non existent You literally did not respond to a single one of my points I have also *used* most of the high end Competition Did you do *any* of that ? To be fair I ll admit Apple is king of video Unfortunately i don't do video much at all As far as photos go, they are just getting along with the top 5 best...every year And that's my gripe with them

    • @Samuel McNeill Sure Using an old outdated sensor ? Using 2x zoom when almost everyone switched to atleast 3x The quality of the uw sensor is legit trash All of Which is years behind some competitors Being the latest to low light photography ( And no, they are not any better than others in that area, they are not "Late but great", just late and decent ) Not updating their prev flagships with hdr3 or night mode when a simple software update would do and pretending it needs complex soc
