anyone feels like there’s a bug with the photos?

in the camera/view finder, the view looks immaculate but then after you take the picture and look at it in your photos it doesn’t look nearly as crisp or sharp.

is there a setting maybe that can change this?

maybe they’re being compressed?

You could go into Settings, Camera, Camera Capture and change to Most Compatible, and see if that helps

I have the Apple XS max iPhone and I have been noticing that the 11 Pro photos are a turn off. I’ve been wanting the iPhone 11 Pro, but after seeing simple photos even at ISO 800, they look really bad. Tons of aggressive noise reduction. My iPhone XS Max looks much better than the 11 Pro at the same ISO. Not sure what’s going on, but they look bad on my iPad Pro 11 inch. I don’t know if this is the result of amateur versus professional photographers, myself I am a professional photographer and some of the images on this thread that I have seen just look pretty horrible in terms of a clean image. I use an app called “Big Photo” to view The images at full resolution and have the capability to continue zooming in down to the pixel level. It very well may be a software issue. I hope so, otherwise I will pass on getting one.

I’m hopeful that Deep Fusion will sort these issues, but if your not satisfied remember you can return the phone to Apple no hassle for your money back and wait to see if things improve software wise.

It will, for sure. I hope Apple advances its chips enough so that Deep Fusion becomes a regular photo mode on the iPhone. It will be a huge deal.

Camaragate? I have been using the new phone and the photos lookg great. Maybe your camera module has an issue with focus? I remember back in the days that being an issue with the first two canon models. Check for back or front focus.
