The iPhone X camera is the star of the show, and we have a first look at a printed iPhone X photo sample along with analysis of what the new iPhone X cameras are capable of. Here’s a look at how good the iPhone X camera is based on an iPhone X sample photo shot by a pro.
Apple packs the best iPhone camera yet into the iPhone X, adding features that you won’t find on the iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 8 or iPhone 8 Plus. While you have to wait for the iPhone X release date in November to take your own photos, you can see just how good the iPhone X camera is by taking a look at the first printed iPhone X photo.
CanvasPop printed one of Apple’s colorful iPhone X sample photos on canvas and shared an analysis of what the iPhone X camera is capable of capturing. Keep in mind this photo is taken by a professional photographer in ideal conditions, but it highlights what the iPhone X camera is capable of. CanvasPop is a popular canvas photo printing service that lets you print your favorite photos and even upload directly from Instagram.
“The 12-megapixel camera, with an f/1.8 – f/2.4 aperture, on the new iPhone X captures a brilliant image. The f/1.8 aperture can have such a shallow depth of field that your subjects will really pop on the blurry background.” explains CanvasPop. Apple’s been playing up Portrait Mode, but the actual camera tech here helps with that blurred background that really draws viewers to the subject.
CanvasPop goes on to add, “This being paired with the dual optical image stabilization mitigates the past problem of image clarity. You can expect even clearer images in low light with less concern for motion blur or handshake blur. The color saturation and clarity of photos are amazing once printed out.” Simply looking at the iPhone X sample photos on your iPhone or laptop screen isn’t enough to know how good the photos are. You really need to see them on a great display or printed out.
Apple’s decision to go with a new lens pays off according to CanvasPop who tells Gotta Be Mobile, “We found the new six-element lens to be the clearest yet. Looking around the edges of the image there were no issues of chromatic aberration and it resulted in a crisp clear image.”
Even if you don’t print a lot of your own photos, seeing what the iPhone X camera is capable of is promising, and may be enough to convince you to wait for the iPhone X instead of buying the iPhone 8 or iPhone 8 Plus.
