“Music” Hey guys It’s Sagar from Tecworkz, and here is my camera review of the iPhone 10 or the iPhone X, if you like to call it that. Every time I get a new smartphone, I make it a point to travel extensively with it. That way I get to test out the camera in different situations, and it also gives me a fairly good idea, about the battery life that I can expect, out of any given smartphone.So in the past 2 weeks that i have had the iPhone 10, I have just been travelling, and shot a lot of images with it. This video is sponsored by MNML case. They offer MNML cases for all your favourite smartphones. Just like their brand name, their cases are truly minimal. There is no branding on any of their cases, and they barely add any bulk or weight to your beautiful looking smartphone. Now, before we get to the Image and video samples, lets get the specs out of the way. The camera module, is a bit different than what we have seen, on any iPhones before this. The orientation of the dual cameras is now vertical, and it sticks out of the back quite a bit. They went with vertical orientation, because the Face ID tech in the front notch needs a lot of space, so there wasn’t enough space left to place these dual cameras in the usual horizontal position, like on the iPhone 7 and 8 Plus. Out of the dual cameras, The first camera has a 28mm wide lens, and the same resolution of 12 megapixel, with a wide aperture of f/1.8 as we saw on the iPhone 8 Plus.While the 2nd one also retains a telephoto lens of 56mm and again has a resolution of 12 megapixel with an aperture of f/2.4. And now both the cameras have Optical Image Stabilisation, which means you will get better images with the telephoto lens even in lower lighting situations. Just like on the iPhone 8 Plus, you get Portrait lighting mode, which lets you add various professional lighting effects to your shots. More on this, when we take a look at the image samples. These new cameras can now capture 4k videos at 24,30 and 60fps and 1080p slow motion videos at 240 fps. These features are not even available in most of the high end cameras. So having them in your smartphone, is very impressive. I have said this before, and I am saying it again, I don’t like that Apple buries the options to change any of these video resolutions, deep in the settings app.So every time you need to shoot at different resolution or frame rate, you have to go to settings, scroll down to
camera settings, and then make the desired changes. I think, they should simplify things, and let us make these changes, right from within the camera app. At the front you have a True Depth 7 megapixel camera with an aperture of f/2.2. Now lets take a look at the image and video samples from this phone. But before we get to that, make sure you hit the subscribe button, so you don’t miss out on any of the amazing videos coming up on this channel. All the images are shot in the auto mode, with auto HDR turned on. The main camera is basically the same sensor that we saw on the iPhone 8 Plus, and we know that it takes amazing images. You can tell, that the colours are much more saturated and vibrant, than what we are used to seeing from iPhones, Apple has made some changes to its image processing algorithm, and now it adds a bit of punch to the images.This is one of the best camera I have every used, and looking at these results, I feel extremely confident about its performance. You can now have the HDR mode turned on all the time, and you should actually do that. Here are images with and without the HDR mode, and look at how good the images with HDR mode turn out. Dynamic range of this camera is just amazing. There are a lot of details in every image that you take, and thanks to the wide f/1.8 aperture, you get amazing close up shots. Auto focus is fast and accurate, which is very important while taking these close up shots. Now here are a few images shot with the normal and telephoto lens. The telephoto lens, helps in capturing distant objects clearly. You can see from these images, how much of an optical zoom it provides. Thanks to the optical stabilisation on this telephoto lens, you get better, sharper images, even in low light.Wider aperture and optical stabilisation on the telephoto lens, means we should also get better portrait mode images. But honestly, I don’t see a huge difference between the portrait images from the 10 and the 8 Plus, which also takes amazing shots. There is less noise in the low light portrait shots, and they look really sharp and crisp. Just like on any other phone, portrait mode might not work every single time. Sometimes it works wonders, but there are also times, when it just doesn’t want to focus on a particular subject, like you see in these shots. So about the portrait lighting mode, its in beta right now, and it is not perfect by any means, but if you take some
time with the shot and get it right, you can have some really amazing looking images. As light starts to go down or if you are shooting under artificial lights, you can still pull off some very good shots, and the noise levels are very minimal. Having optical image stabilisation also helps, as it allows the sensor to capture more light, giving us sharper and much detailed images, with lower noise in them.If you like taking images with the front facing camera, the 7 megapixel sensor delivered great results in ample light. It might over expose certain parts of the image, but if you take a moment adjusting the exposure, results are so much better. It might not be the best for taking images in low light, but in artificial light, you can pull off some good selfies. The True depth front facing camera, now lets you take portrait mode selfies, while it might not be as good as the portrait mode selfies from the Pixel 2 or the Pixel 2 XL, I think it delivers good results in ample light. Coming to the video footage, the iPhone 10 is one of the best in its class, and the video it shoots is very stable, thanks to the Optical Image Stabilisation on both the lenses. This gives me the confidence, to use the telephoto camera more often while shooting videos, which I rarely used before. And as I said before, you can now even shoot 4K videos in 24,30 and 60fps.240fps slow motion videos in 1080p resolution are just buttery smooth. I love shooting and looking at these slow motion videos, they are so good. This is without a doubt, the best camera on an iPhone yet. Thanks to the wide aperture and OIS on the telephoto lens, you can take some amazing low light and portrait shots, which was not possible from the iPhones before this.IPhone 8 Plus can also take some amazing images, but the performance of the 10, is slightly above that. But if you consider the price, you have to pay a lot more, to get just a slight bump in the camera performance. If you have the money, and want the absolute best camera on your smartphone, go with the iPhone10 without even giving it a second thought. But if you don’t care for the portrait mode on the front facing camera, I would suggest you to consider the iPhone 8 Plus as well. I will be comparing the camera on the iPhone 10 with that of the 8 Plus in a few days, and then we will see the actual difference between the performance of the two.So make sure you hit that subscribe
