Good morning you awesome war torn camera geeks! A couple of months ago, I received a plain iPhone 13 as a gift (not a Pro, Pro Max, or whatever other fancy version) and after two months I have to say it’s a game changer!
This photo was shot on the iPhone 13’s Portrait mode at f/1.4. Now I’m not posting this photo because I think it’s impressive or anything. In fact I was not really impressed with it but then I realized the reason I’m not impressed is because I know the bokeh is a product of artificial intelligence, not real lens bokeh. But to the general, non camera public, I could imagine someone out there being impressed and that made me realize that for many people it might be good enough!
But in addition to the faux bokeh, there are many things that make this phone a game changer. The highly touted Cinematic mode, while not perfect, has been good enough that I’ve shot several of my YouTube videos just with this phone. The audio is clearer and better too. And to top it off, the phone now has a very handy ultra wide mode and just as Apple has done many times, I never knew I’d need this ultra wide so much but now I can’t live without it! 😍👍
But today is not my iPhone 13 review. I just wanted to say that if you’ve been thinking about this phone, wanting to upgrade, I honestly think it’s worth it!
What do you think? I’d love to hear from you!
