The iPhone 12 Pro Max: Real Pro Photography

Sebastiaan de With:

Since the iPhone 12 has a bit more noise, there’s less detail. Still, the detail isn’t easy to spot in bright daylight. Everything changes between the iPhone 12 and 12 Pro Max the moment sunset begins. As shadows get darker and light gets dimmer, you can start seeing shifts in detail.


It seems Apple’s Camera app applies just as much noise reduction to the 12 Pro Max image as it does for regular iPhone 12. This unfortunately ‘blurs’ superior details out of the iPhone 12 Pro Max.


The iPhone 12 Pro Max’ new sensor-shift technology really shines when you take away that computational magic and focus on traditional, single-shot photography.


With a traditional DSLR, nobody would dare take a one-second photos handheld.

Yet the iPhone 12 Pro Max can take sharp images at ridiculous exposure times.

I’m excited to see what becomes possible with ProRAW. Too bad there’s still no way to change the default iOS camera app.
